  1. Read the chapters, again and again

Many students try to avoid reading the chapter themselves and rely on their teachers and YouTube instead for understanding. Many of them even tend to watch summary lectures of IED and solve questions. While teachers and YouTube can help you in understanding the concepts, you will not be able to ingrain those understandings in your brain if you skip reading your books.

It is very important that you read your books, at least 2-3 times before your exams. Do not solely rely on teachers’ or coaching’s notes. Reading out will ensure that nothing is left and that you revise all the concepts clearly and holistically.

  • 2. Solve Questions

A cliché, but there’s no better option to revise than to solve as many questions as you can.

  • For macroeconomics, it is suggested that you solve all kind of subjective and objective questions and not only numericals. While numericals are a significant part of 12th economics exam, many students forget to pay due attention to the short and objective questions.
  • For IED, you can either rely on previous year questions or the question banks available in the market to get an idea of the type of questions asked, Practice them. It is suggested that you revise IED more by writing.
  • Try to solve maximum number of questions for each chapter. You can then move on to sample papers for 12th economics, easily available in the market and internet. We’ve attached a free copy of 12th economics sample paper booklet by CA Parag Gupta:

Self-made short notes will make revision much more fun and interesting, especially for IED, which many students find a bit boring.

  • While reading a chapter, highlight important keywords and definitions in the book itself.
  • Try to make a very short 1-2 pages summary of the chapter, in bullet point format, focusing on the keywords that you had highlighted earlier. Include important graphs and flowcharts, if applicable.

It is suggested that you make these notes at least 2 months before your 12th economics exam, so that you can easily have multiple rounds of revisions just before your exam.
