Have never done any economics before and still really enjoyed this subject!! The content was really interesting and fairly easy to grasp, however there was quite a jump in the difficulty of the content in the latter half of the semester. The assignments can also feel quite daunting (written assignment and essay) but thankfully the faculty seems to be quite lenient with the marking and understand that most people are new to economics. Definitely opt for an in-person tute if you can.
