Yes, I'll tell you why. Economics is cool in the way you almost guaranteed a question on one half of the subject and another half of the subject. So, you can study hard and try to achieve your best potential grade. But, if you find that you are handling too many subjects at once if you may be repeating more than one, you could opt to study just one side of the subject Microeconomics or Macroeconomics in detail, while causally studying the other. This will be less stressful and being honest with you you can achieve the highest grade of you study all the topics, but you may still possibly get up to 80% doing the latter. In terms of study tips, I have wrote a guide for Studyclix.ie with advice on students studying Economics, I hope it helps! https://www.studyclix.ie/Blog/Show/how-to-get-a-h1-in-the-leaving-cert-economics-exam Good luck!

Keep in mind that the course has changed and there is a project worth 20% now, examinable for the first time in 2021. Be sure you are able to do this and submit it somewhere

i did the old course and i can guarantee you that if you work hard you can finish micro and national income and internatinal trade (this would guarantee you the 4 questions which you need) in less than 4-5 months. It is definetely a subject you should consider to pick up on points. However next year is the first year the new course is being tested, so also take that into account. the teachers have been going to confrences over the last two years to learn about the new course so your best bet is to ask a teacher and see if economics is still as easy
