We also talked to Mrs. Surinder Kaur Puri, PGT Economics regarding the Economics paper.
What was the difficulty level of the paper?
When it comes to difficulty level, though the paper was balanced but some sections had 2-3 questions which required mathematical skill.
How many marks an average student could score in the paper?
An average student could easily have scored 60+ marks in the paper.
Was there any question from the previous year question paper?
The paper had 5-6 questions from previous year papers. These questions were easy enough to be attempted by the students.
Any question which was out of syllabus?
There was no question which was out of syllabus, which was a huge relief for students.
How would you rate the difficulty level of each section?
There were 2 sections with equal difficulty level in this paper. In micro-economics most of the questions were direct. But this time questions on price elasticity of demand and that on cost schedule were asked for 6 marks which was a surprise for the students. In macro-economics the numerical was comparatively easier this time as compared to last year.
About the paper pattern of this year's economics exam, Ms. Nisha, PGT Economics, Army Public School, Delhi Cantt said that the pattern had slight change with some questions allotted higher marks. She also said that, there were no value based questions this time and students were told to prepare topics such as Demonetisation but no question regarding this was asked.
