EconplusDal Student Grade Boosting Workshop - Bangkok Prep

EconplusDal Student Grade Boosting Workshop

On the 24th and 25th March Bangkok Prep had the privilege of hosting renowned YouTube Economist EconplusDal who brought his inimitable style to the Primary Campus. He is a teacher and Head of Economics with vast experience in getting students to top grades in Economics examinations through focussing on key core skills and exam secrets that unlock the door to exam success. On his first evening in Bangkok one adoring fan stopped him on the BTS to talk Economics and confirm that he really was here!

The two day workshop provided a dynamic environment to allow well over one hundred A-Level and IB students from different schools around Bangkok and some from as far as Vietnam to unlock exam secrets, hone core content and application nuggets which helped to provide students with
the confidence and understanding of how to push towards the highest marks. It was a fantastic weekend which helped to build Economics expertise in challenging areas such as exchange rates, balance of payments and we even had topical examples and deeper evaluation of the potential trade war that is looming.

Students left the event feeling more confident and enthusiastic about Economics which will be vital as they continue preparations for their external examinations in just over two months.

Finally, a huge thanks to Ms. Genevieve, Khun Mai, Khun Aor and the Marketing, Events, Finance and Maintenance teams who made the event possible.
