CBSE Class 12 Economics Question Papers

Economics is a social science which impacts every human being. CBSE has introduced the course on economics to educate students on their own experience as economic life and the economy goes through the changes. To do this it is essential that the students should develop analytical skills so that they can observe and understand the economic realities. The learning through one own observation and observing the ecosystem around you makes it interesting and impactful.

CBSE Class 11 and 12 students are at a stage where they can understand abstract ideas, use their power of thinking and develop their own perception. The students at this stage are exposed to the thoroughness of the economics subject in an organised way.

CBSE introduces the economic course in a methodical way initially preparing the learners to understand the economic realities that our country is facing currently along with some basic statistical tools, which help understand these broader economic realities. After the initial stage as the student enters the later stage he is introduced to economics as a theory of abstraction.

CBSE Economics course also emphasises on multiple projects and activities. These projects/activities provide an option to the students to learn through observing and exploring various economic issues from their day to day life as well as economic issues which are broader and invisible in nature. The theoretical skills that they learn from the course helps them design the projects and activities. The course also emphasises the role of information and communication technology in facilitating the learning process of the students.
