We talked to Surinder Kaur, PGT Economics, Army Public School Delhi Cantt., who said that the paper was of average difficult level and the question paper followed the pattern given by CBSE. She also said that some questions were repeated from last year, although were worded differently.
The questions in all three sets of the paper were same except were put in different sequence. The questions were strictly from the NCERT syllabus. The paper strictly followed CBSE guideline. She also said that the numericals in the question paper were of average difficulty level. Some of the questions in section B were twisted.
According to Surinder Kaur, students who had practiced previous year question papers thoroughly and CBSE sample papers would be able to score above 65% marks.
"According to our analysis, 35/40 is achievable in each section. Hence, a score of 65+/80 is easily achievable with many students being able to cross 70," said Mr. Rajshekhar Ratrey, VP, educational content, Toppr.com.
"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," he added.
