Important Tips for Cracking CBSE’s Class XII Economics Paper

1. Prepare thoroughly according to the syllabus (unit wise) and the weightage provided, as per the CBSE.

2. As far as possible revise one complete section of the paper i.e.

Section A OR   Section B  
Microeconomics Macroeconomics  
Unit-1 (4 Marks),   Unit-5 (10 Marks),
Unit-2 (13 Marks),   Unit-6 (6 Marks),
Unit-3 (13 Marks) and   Unit-7 (12 Marks)  
Unit-4 (10 Marks)   Unit-8 (6 Marks),
  Unit-9 (6 Marks).

3. Preferably proceed from Unit-1 …….. Unit-9, as it is a systematic approach.

(Note:  There is no hard-fast rule)

4. Solve as many Practice Papers as possible for performing better and good “time management”. You should try to complete your paper 10 minutes before time and use this time for revision.

Now when attempting the CBSE Question Paper.

5. Read the question asked carefully and then attempt it.

6. As far as possible proceed in sequence- Q. 1 to Q. 24.

7. Attempt any one Section A/B into i.e  

                    Q1 …………… Q12                        or            Q13 ……..…..… Q24

Note: This is advised for smooth evaluation in the CBSE and there is no hard fast rule. It is a systematic approach.

8. Please number the question correctly as per the CBSE’s Question Paper.

9. Answer as per the weightage of the question asked and also strictly according to the word limit prescribed.

10. VSA questions carry 1 mark each and should be answered in one sentence each.

11. SA 1 questions carry 3 marks each and should be answered in about 60 words each.

12. SA 2 questions carry 4 marks each and should be answered in about 100 words each.

Answers should be brief and to the point and the above word limit should be adhered to as far as possible.

13. Word limit is not applicable to the numerical questions.

14. In solving the numerical, giving the formula is a big must, as it carries a weightage of 1 mark/2 marks.

15. Proceed step-wise without any scribbling.

16.Try to solve the numerical on the same page.

17.Highlight/encircle/underline the answer to the numerical.

18.Interpret the answer, wherever required. For example, in a numerical on elasticity of demand if the elasticity is 1, then interpret it as a case of perfectly elastic demand.

19.Entries to the numerical should be written vertically than horizontally, to avoid any careless mistake.

20. Draw a rough work column (RW) on the extreme right side of the page when attempting a numerical.


21. Familiarize yourself with CBSE marking scheme* of the previous year as a guideline.

22. Diagrams asked in the respective questions should be neat with all relevant details and also properly labeled.

23. After attempting a question it should be tick marked in the Question Paper.

24. Do not waste time on a question you are not able to attempt. Go to the next one and come   back to it last of all.

25. In case of answer to a question being continued on the next sheet please give pointers like “continued” on the extreme right hand corner. Use ‘P.T.O.’ also where required.

26. Finally revise your answers in the last 10 minutes to check any anomaly.

Happy Preparation and “Best of Luck”!
