Last Minute Preparation Tips For Karnataka II PUC Economics Exam

 

How To Divide The Syllabus

As you would have already started your preparations, now divide the syllabus according to the theory and problem to check how much you have covered in each. This would give you a clearer picture of the balance portions to study. Generally, the first half of the chapters such as National Income Accounting and Money and Banking will have theory for you to understand the fundamentals and it would be followed by formulae. So mark all the theory and problems part separately while studying so that it would be easy to identify for revision. 

Topics To Club Theory With Formulae

When you study one concept, try to focus well on it such that you could relate it with the relevant formulae. For instance, to calculate the relationship between cost and production, supply and demand, balance of trade and balance of payment, understanding the concepts can help you to derive the formula better and calculate with logical thinking.

Practise Previous Year Question Papers

Your revision will be complete when you test your knowledge about the preparations so far. So practise old question papers and get thorough. This will also help you understand twisted and tricky questions and identify such concepts while preparing itself. Click here to get the previous year question papers from the Karnataka government official website.

Important Definitions To Remember

If you remember the definitions of key terms such as GDP, normative economics, positive economics, surplus budget and fiscal policy, you could build on it further even if you forget the answer. So try to memorise at least the minimum content in important topics, so that you do not miss out on any portion.

Topics To Cover Under Very Long Answers

Mark the topics that are taking long and go on to the ones that you can cover quickly. You can come back to the left-out ones when you are done with the important questions and other things on priority. The paper will have four 10 marks out of which you must attend only two. So plan the lengthy answers accordingly and do not spend over time on it. Some of the very long answer type topics are 'laws of returns to scale with table and diagram', 'plastic elasticity with diagram', 'features of monopolistic competition market' and 'functions of RBI'. 

What Are The Topics To Revise On The Go

If you still have portions to cover the morning before the exam, discuss it with a friend or teacher who could help you do a quick revision by clearly explaining the concept. Even while travelling to the venue you could go through the balance topics. Some topics that can be well understood when explained are deductive and inductive methods, curve analysis and measurement of income methods because they have graphs and problems that need to be presented with strong fundamentals. Learning it from a person who has a deep understanding of the mentioned topics will be a great way for a quick revision.
