Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today, December 08, 2021, successfully conducted the Class 12 Business Studies paper. The exam was held through pen-and-paper mode at selected centres across the country. Students had time from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm to attempt and complete the entire paper. As per the new board pattern devised by CBSE, students had to mark the correct options in the OMR sheet. Unsurprisingly, the paper had a good mix of knowledge- and application-based questions, most of which were directly based on the NCERT syllabus.
Now, that the Class 12 Business Studies paper is done and dusted with, students are incessantly searching for the analysis and syllabus covered in today’s paper. Here’s all they need to know –
CBSE Class 12 Business Studies Exam Analysis
As implied in the CBSE Class 12 term-wise curriculum, the paper gave an almost equal weightage to all five units included in the Term I syllabus. According to most students, the paper had a balanced mix of easy, moderate and difficult questions. Even teachers reiterated this fact, stating that students will be able to score well in today’s paper.
The Class 12 Business Studies paper was in tandem with the curriculum specified by CBSE as well as the sample papers. Most questions were directly from NCERT with a few application-based ones. These required a high order of thinking. Moreover, around 20 questions were based on case studies.
CBSE Class 12 Business Studies Syllabus Covered
This year, the central board specified the exact syllabus and chapters to be covered in the Term I and Term II exams. To make things more convenient for students, CBSE also specified the weightage allotted for each chapter. Accordingly, the following is the syllabus covered in today’s paper along with the chapter-wise weightage –
# Evolution and Fundamentals of Business
# Forms of Business Organisations
# Public, Private and Global Enterprises
# Business Services
# Emerging Modes of Business
# Social Responsibility of Business and Business Ethics
The first two segments were together allotted a weightage of 16 marks. Similarly, the third and fourth segments had been clubbed together for a total of 14 marks. Finally, the last two units were asked in the exam for a maximum of 10 marks. All these units together comprise Part A i.e., Foundations of Business.
Looking at the unit-wise distribution of marks, it is clear that the entire paper was held for a maximum of 40 marks. For each correct answer, students would be allotted 1 mark while 0 marks will be allotted to incorrect or unanswered questions.
Business Studies was one of the many major subject exams conducted today by CBSE. However, there’s no time to waste as tomorrow, the board is going to organise the Geography exam from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.
