Although you might not feel as comfy during exams as this little chap at the beach, take our advice and make sure you


Many students lose points just because they have not read the (full) question or that they have not considered the whole of it.

We understand that the exam is stressful for many (we remember them too) but this is exactly why you should take your time to read the question and stop for a second to see if you have fully grasped it. Only then should you jump into answering it.

Don’t forget: you have five minutes reading time before the start of the exam.

About the Author:

My name is Daniel Szekely and I work as an IB Economics tutor, examiner and teacher. Having earned an MA degree in Economics at the University of Aberdeen, I started my career as a financial analyst at Morgan Stanley, one of the largest investment banks of the world. Yet, despite the promising career prospects of the banking industry, I decided to make a larger social impact by becoming a teacher. Currently, I teach IB Economics at SEK Budapest International School and have been an examiner for over 8 years. I started EconDaddy as a simple blog to share great articles with my students and others taking IB Economics around the world to use for their commentaries. Being a practicing IB Economics tutor, I have first hand insight into the most common mistakes of students, so the EconDaddy blog now also provides exam and commentary writing tips.
