  1. If someone haven’t adopt eco in 10th or 12th so how he clear BA programme included eco subject answer me fast plzzz.

    • Ajay Kajania, I am pursuing BA Prog with the subject economics from DU. I had economics in 12th standard too.

      People who do not have economics in 12th can easily clear ba prog exam with the subject eco. The first semester of the course is nothing but the 50% of what we studied in 12. Rest 50% of 12, u will study in 3rd semester. Therefore, your 12 standard syllabus will also be covered in ba prog. With eco.

      There is nothing like that if we do not studied eco in 12th we cannot score well. Teachers from the first semester teaches you from the base. And hence, u can easily clear the exams and score well. There are many students in my class, who are not from the economics background but are doing really well.

      It is a conceptual subject and a scoring too until u are willing to understand it.

      And now, we are introduced with the CBCS system in graduation (du), papers are checked v. leniently.
