Key Observations:

The change in syllabus for Accountancy Class 11 can be summarised as below:

  • Course structure: The weightage of the course has now been changed. Earlier, the theory paper was for 90 marks and project work was for 10 marks. Project work has now been given 20 marks, and so the weightage of the theory paper stands at 80 marks. The total number of questions has also been increased from 24 to 32.
  • Paper pattern: The number of questions in the paper pattern has been changed, but the weightage remains the same as 1, 3, 4, 6 and 8 marks. Accordingly, the number of questions for 1 mark has been increased from 6 to 20. For 3 marks questions, the number has been decreased from 6 to 2, and for 6 marks, the number has been decreased from 5 to 3. The number of questions for 4 and 8 marks is the same, i.e. 5 and 2, respectively.
  • Typology of questions: Analysing and Evaluation which includes Creating are the new question types.
  • Internal choice in questions: There will be internal choice in questions of 3 marks, 4 marks, 6 marks and 8 marks. All questions carrying 8 marks will have an internal choice. (Earlier only questions carrying 8 marks had an internal choice.)
  • Change in the chapter-wise weightage of marks: There are few changes in the weightage of marks allotted to the various units in Part A and Part B: 
    • Unit 1 (Theoretical Framework) which was earlier for 15 marks is now for 12 marks.  
    • Unit 3 (Financial Statements of Sole Proprietorship from Complete and Incomplete Records) which was earlier for 25 marks is now for 20 marks.

Key Observations:

  • Course structure: The weightage of the course has now been changed. Earlier the theory paper was for 90 marks and project work was for 10 marks. Now project work has been given 20 marks, so the weightage of the theory paper is 80 marks. The total number of questions has also been increased from 27 to 34.
  • Paper pattern: The number of questions in the paper pattern has been changed, but the weightage remains the same as 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 marks. Accordingly, the number of questions for 1 mark has been increased from 8 to 20, the number has been decreased from 6 to 5 for 3-mark questions and from 5 to 3 for 4-mark questions. The number of questions for 5 and 6 marks has been reduced from 4 marks to 3 marks.
  • Internal choice in questions: Previously, it was not clearly mentioned whether there will be choice in the paper or not. However, from 2019–20, it has been clearly mentioned that there will be internal choice in questions of 3 marks (1 choice), 4 marks (1 choice), 5 marks (2 choices) and 6 marks (2 choices). In all, there is a total of 6 internal choice questions.
  • Change in the chapter-wise weightage of marks: There are few changes in the weightage of marks allotted to the various units in Part A.
    In Part A, the marks for the chapters ‘Nature and Purpose of Business’ and ‘Forms of Business Organisations’ have been reduced from 20 to 16.
    The marks for the chapters ‘Public, Private and Global Enterprises’ and ‘Business Services’ have been reduced from 18 to 14 and those for the chapters ‘Emerging Modes of Business’ and ‘Social Responsibility of Business and Business Ethics’ have been reduced from 12 to 10.
    In Part B, chapter-wise weightage of marks remains unchanged.  
  • Typology of questions: Analysing and Evaluation which includes Creating are the new question types.

 

The board has introduced a number of changes in all three subjects of Commerce. The most notable change is the introduction of the quick-to-answer multiple choice questions carrying a total of 20 marks. Students will now have sufficient time to answer the long questions and can thus score more marks!
