For this year, teachers have recommended that the students pay attention to the complete chapters. After looking at the difficulty level of the different subject’s questions papers for this year, teachers are expecting that the Economics examination would be moderate to tough this year. The focus, teacher’s believer, would be on the understanding of various concepts.
“Economics is becoming a very competitive subject. With the percentage requirements increasing to 99 per cent in top universities for Economics course, it is becoming imperative to increase the level of the understanding of the subject,” notes an expert.
“If we look at the question papers of past 5 years, you would notice a subtle but sure increase in the difficulty level of the question papers. The questions are now more based on the child’s understanding of the concept. Students should be prepared for short answer questions.”
As for the type of questions, the increase in the number of numerical asked was also pointed out. “Practical questions are more conceptual than theoretical questions. Though the syllabus has been limited, students should carefully read the information provided in numerical questions and use it carefully.” Last year the numerical questions were for about 26 to 30 marks.
