CBSE class 12 economics analysis: CBSE students appeared for their economics paper today on March 26. This year due to change in the pattern, students were a bit anxious. But experts suggest that most questions were easy and of the moderate level and only a few questions were challenging. Unit wise weightage was followed and design of the paper was exactly as in the sample paper and in prescribed syllabus. The subdivision of questions were comparatively less than sample papers, but the design was the same.
Shikha Bansal Economics teacher from Manav Racha International School said, “It was an easy paper and most of the questions were directly from the syllabus. There was little confusion in the MCQ portion like GST and subsidy. Also, it will be difficult to score 80 out of 80 in this paper. Overall it was a good paper”.
“35/40 is achievable in each section. Hence, a score of 65 and above/80 is easily obtainable with many students being able to cross 70. The weightage of marks was almost evenly distributed with less weightage on open economy macroeconomics and money and banking as compared to the previous year’s paper. Overall, the level of the paper was easy, said Rajshekhar Ratrey, VP, Educational Content, Toppr.com.
Numericals, diagrams and theory
A balance was maintained between all the three, unlike the previous year where numerical were given more weightage.
Students are happy as most of the questions were on predicted lines. Abhishek of class 12, section F, VidyaGyan school was ecstatic and expects very high marks. Likewise, another student Kavita is highly optimistic about scoring above 90 per cent.
