“Today’s economics paper was moderate and had followed the CBSE pattern. But question paper cannot be full scoring. Nearby 20 questions are reason-based. But most of the students can score more than 80 marks. Still, some questions are tricky and difficult to answer,” K. Venkateson, JAIN International Residential School (JIRS), Bengaluru said.

“In Question 41 .on foreign exchange rate , Assertion was beyond the scope of syllabus which perturbed the students. In Section B some questions were found to be challenging. In section C Q 56, question on non tax revenue has a bit of subjectivity,” Arti Chopra, Principal Amity International School, Gurugram said.

Overall experts rated the question paper as balanced and of a good standard with 4 ambiguous questions that could be handled with choices. Students seemed happy and are expecting good results in Economics.

Meanwhile, Dr. Mala Kapoor, Principal, Silverline Prestige School, Ghaziabad said that overall, the paper was average; not easy. There were multiple questions on assertion and reasoning. However, these questions were good.

“Some of the students we spoke felt that it was good. But some found it is confusing. Even though the paper started a bit late, students were able to complete the paper on time. The paper ended at 1:20. There was no problem of time constraints raised by the students,” she added
