Today, March 26, the CBSE Class 12 Economics Board Paper was conducted successfully at various exam centres across India. Economics is considered one of the most scoring subjects. To see whether the paper was scoring or not, let us review the CBSE Class 12 Economics Paper this year.

Difficulty Level of the Paper

The paper was very easy, and there were no difficult question in the paper. That is, 72% of the paper consisted of direct questions and 28% of the paper consisted of average difficulty level questions. If we compare Microeconomics with Macroeconomics, Microeconomics was much easier than Macroeconomics.


Chapter-wise Marks Distribution

This year’s paper was different from that of last year. Project work of 20 marks was included in the 2017–18 paper. So, if we compare the chapter-wise weightage of marks of the paper with that of the CBSE blueprint, then it can be clearly seen that there were no variations in the chapter-wise weightage of marks.
