After two difficult papers, accountancy and mathematics, class 12 CBSE students breathed easy on Saturday as their Economics paper turned out along expected lines.

Students and teachers said the paper was good overall, barring a few tricky questions.

“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.

“Although the paper was direct, there were some questions students found a bit confusing. One was the value-based question on production possibility curve and another was a true or false question on a monopolist’s pricing,” said Sudha Sadangi, a teacher from Bloom Public School.

“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.
