The fourth phase of the Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET) 2022 kicked off on Wednesday. On the second day of phase four of the exam, August 18, students found the papers easy except for math, which was rated low-moderate in difficulty. The economics paper had questions based on concepts taught in Class 12, while the accounting and English papers were for the easiest students, they said.
In economics, “there was a case study with five questions, and surprisingly, the chart-based questions were more like interpreting data. Topics covered included the macroeconomic policy indicator, the objective of the five-year plan, the big leap forward campaign, among others,” said Amitendra Kumar, Product Manager – CUET and Undergraduate Programs, Career Launcher.
