CBSE students find Economics paper on expected lines

April 1, 2013, 12:00 am

The Class 12 CBSE exams ended on Saturday with economics as the last one. The teachers found the paper "easy and balanced", with few departures from the previous

years’ pattern.

�Everything was from the CBSE syllabus. But there were some challenging questions, and rightly so, which required students to use their minds. Only a child who has

understood the concepts well will score 90 and above,� said Puneet Duggal, a class 12 economics teacher from Ahlcon International School, Mayur Vihar.

Although the paper was mostly as per pattern, one anomaly was all the six markers in the macroeconomics part of the paper were numericals, which put off some students.

�Some questions were a little twisted. The one on foreign direct investment required some thinking,� said Vikas Sikka, a student.

Most students were quite pleased. The length was not a problem and the numericals were fairly simple.
