The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary & Higher Secondary Education conducted the Social Science Paper II (Geography and Economics) exam for students of Class 10 today, 21st March. Students got a one-day break after their Social Science Paper I which would have helped them in their last-minute revision of the difficult Geography and Economics concepts of Social Science Paper II. Most students felt that this paper was easier than Paper I, i.e. the History and Political Science Paper.

Social Science II Chapter-wise Distribution of Marks for Geography


Social Science II Chapter-wise Distribution of Marks for Economics


In Geography, few questions were of the medium difficulty level. Several questions were asked from textbook exercises. According to many students, the map marking section was relatively easy. Q3 (B), the Map Observation section, was of a medium difficulty level. On the whole, the Geography paper was of an easy to medium level.

In Economics, about 90% of the total questions asked were from textbook exercises. These questions were straight and direct. Interestingly, the Economics section was easy, and students can expect to score good marks in this section.

Overall, students who had worked hard, solved past year papers and practised textbook exercises would have been able to solve the questions with ease and would do well in this paper.
