Learn to Write Perfect Answers with this Free Webinar for CBSE 12 Economics

There has been a great deal of bustle among students ever since the Central Board of Secondary Education released the datesheet for the board examinations this year. Both Class 10 and 12 board exams are scheduled to begin on 5th March 2018. Now that the examination stress is breathing down students’ necks, they find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of questions, both conceptual and preparative.

Between long, exhaustive hours of studying and travelling to and from tuitions, have you taken the time out to ponder over how to write perfect answers in your board exams? Well, then you are bang on! You are among the few students who realise the importance of meticulous presentation of the answer sheet. Or, at least, you are on the right track as you are asking the right questions.

A correct answer fetch you marks, but only the perfect answer fetches you full marks. This is how a topper is born! So, if you are ambitious, and you are looking for ways to tower both head and shoulders over your peers, you are in the right place. As part of our ‘Write Right’ endeavour, we have come up with a series of free webinars, segregated subject-wise for better clarity, to help you write perfect answers in your CBSE 12 board exams. In this instalment, we are covering Economics.


Here are 6 key take-away points from this free webinar to help you write flawless answers in your CBSE 12 Economics exam.

1) Read the question carefully: Read it again to understand what is exactly asked. Make full use of the reading time allotted to you before the examination and eye your question paper inch by inch. While approaching a particular question, carefully analyse what is already given and how you can make the best use of it. Then, try to understand what the question demands of you and just how much you should write.

2) Do not write everything you know: Say you read the phrase ‘elasticity of demand’ in a question. Take a moment before you empty every ounce of knowledge you have on this topic, graphs and diagrams included, on your answer sheet. By doing so you will not gain any extra marks: you will only lose precious time. So, how do you decide how much to write?

3) Pay attention to the marks allotted to a particular question: To begin with, the CBSE 12 Economics Syllabus is divided into two halves – micro and macro. Forty marks is allotted to each half (40 + 40). Also, 20 marks is allotted to project work, which can be based on either microeconomics or macroeconomics. Keeping aside the CBSE 12 Economics project, we are left with an 80 marks question paper. So far so good?

Now, based on the CBSE marking pattern, you get different types of questions – very short ones (1 mark each), relatively short ones (3 or 4 marks each) and long ones which are 6 marks each. Before attempting to write an answer, check how many marks are allotted to that particular question, and answer accordingly.

4) Structure all your answers: This is especially relevant for the long answer questions (6 marks each). Writing the correct answer is simply not enough; you have to write impeccably to score maximum marks. So how should you go about it? Begin with a brief introduction. Then write the main points in bullet form; avoid lengthy paragraphs or clubbing two or more points in the same paragraph. It negatively impacts the presentation of your answer. After you’re done, highlight the keywords in your answer to grab the examiner’s attention. And lastly, make sure that the concluding sentence or paragraph of your answer clearly sums up the essence of your whole answer, leaving no room for doubt.

5) Draw your diagrams supplying all information: No, you do not need to be the second Da Vinci to be able to draw the perfect diagrams in your examination. Just draw your diagrams neatly and label them well. Make them self-explanatory and leave no room for assumptions. The more clarity you have in your diagrams, the more marks you will bag!

6) Show calculations for numericals: Let’s say that you are asked to calculate the National Income. Do not jump steps and answer directly. Show the step where you derive the net domestic product at factor cost and the net national product at factor cost. Even if your final answer is wrong, you will still get marks for the steps. The same goes for writing down formulas as and where applicable.

So there you go! Spread your wings and soar high!
