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.
