## How to Pass Waec Economics Examination Easily

To pass your WAEC successfully there are major things you have to do and they include the items below:

### Solve Economics mathematical problems everyday

Economics has some mathematical problems attached to it and that is where most students find it difficult. The only way out is steady practice. Ensure you solve at least one mathematical problem each day in Economics order to get well acquainted with it.

However, you may not have all it takes to solve those mathematical problems as frequently as that. Ensure you solve at least twice or thrice a week. Each time you want to solve, give it at least 1 hour 30 minutes and you will see yourself doing well.
