VCE ECONOMICS Q&A THREAD

To go straight to posts from 2018, click here.

What is this thread for?
If you have general questions about the VCE Legal Studies course or how to improve in certain areas, this is the place to ask! 👌


Who can/will answer questions?
Everyone is welcome to contribute; even if you're unsure of yourself, providing different perspectives is incredibly valuable.

Please don't be dissuaded by the fact that you haven't finished Year 12, or didn't score as highly as others, or your advice contradicts something else you've seen on this thread, or whatever; none of this disqualifies you from helping others. And if you're worried you do have some sort of misconception, put it out there and someone else can clarify and modify your understanding! 

There'll be a whole bunch of other high-scoring students with their own wealths of wisdom to share with you, including TuteSmart tutors! So you may even get multiple answers from different people offering their insights - very cool.


To ask a question or make a post, you will first need an ATAR Notes account. You probably already have one, but if you don't, it takes about four seconds to sign up - and completely free!


Original post
To all Economics Students:

This thread takes inspiration from EPL's massive accounting question thread that was used throughout the year. I think it would be nice if people doing economics had a single thread where they could post any queries or questions related to economics. Feel free to post anything including requests for note, tips, advice etc.

I will (and I'm sure anyone who did economics this year) endeavour to answer your questions and hopefully make your studies easier.

Good Luck Economics Students of 2011!

Good idea to start it here Sam. I'm sure a few of us (including myself!) will have a few questions for yourself/others throughout the year. :)

Just a little tip:

Make sure to write/type your own set of notes throughout the year (in addition to reading notes by someone else and the textbook). I both wrote notes in class and typed up my own set over the holidays when I got ahead. Well worth the effort.

When utute is up and ready to go, will you upload all of your notes?
That would be very helpful.

I'll upload my notes for economics tomorrow. I've still got to find them. They're somewhere inside a folder named VCE. Along with everything else.

Aos = Study design?

AoS= Area of study (on the study design). Each subject is broken up into areas of study which are broken up into dot points of key knowledge and skills. From what I can see in eco, the first area of study in unit 3 looks prety easy but the seccond looks massive.

Ok, as promised, I'm posting my notes that helped me get a 50 in Economics. I apologise beforehand for any grammatical or typing errors that are present. Feel free to edit it in any way. I only ask that you leave my name and "utute" on it if you plan on distributing it to your friends.

Enjoy :)

EDIT: Just realised it is ~4MB, so I'll post it on mediafire.

Same as the textbook? Yeah, they were pretty similar. I found that just typing them up helped me to understand and remember the concepts.

Try Yitzi's notes (summaries of key concepts if not better of the textbook "Economics Down Under")
