(M.A Economics, Center for Economic Studies and Planning “CESP”): The pattern of entrance examination for M.A Economics from CESP had slight changes time by time. The paper was of 100 marks with no negative marking and consisted of, mostly, four to five parts with the following elaboration:
1):30 multiple choice questions of one mark each
2): 8 less explanatory questions with 5 marks each and some proofs too, and out of which, 6 ought to be solved
3): 3Elaborative questions with 10 marks each, out of which, 2 was required to be solved.
4): one 20 mark easy writing question, with a choice of 1 from 6 given topics.
In 2010, the pattern was changed by the center and the new pattern was introduced and it is applicable now. In this new pattern, there are 100 multiple choice questions with 5 choices and with the weight-age of one (1) mark each. The negative marking of (-1/2) per each wrong answer is also part of the new pattern introduced.
Note: Before appearing for the examination, please look carefully the latest prospectus for any announcement reading the changes in the pattern of exam, decided by the university. The entrance exam would majorly include questions from 4 main economics papers and general knowledge, which are briefly explained below:
1) Statistics: The average graduation level knowledge of this paper would suffice to solve its questions in the exam. The main focus should be on Probability, Averages and Dispersion.
The preferable books to be consulted for Statistics are: a. Basic Statistics by: Nagar and Das.
b. Mathematical Statistics with Applications by: John E. Fraeund.
c. Schaum’s Outline of Statistics by: Murray R. Spiegel and Larry J. Stephens.
2) Microeconomics: The principle focus should be on utility maximization, special cases of perfect substitutes and compliments, different productions and cost functions with emphasis on their minimization exercise and profit maximization problems, different forms of competition encompassing perfect competition, monopoly, basic theory of general equilibrium, questions of allocation and Pareto optimality. Requirement is of the nature of an average graduation curriculum.
The reference that should be followed:
3) Macroeconomics: Basic knowledge of average graduation level should be sufficient. Emphasis on growth models, e.g., Harrod-Domar, Solow-Swan model should be laid. Also, focus should be directed towards Keynsian macroeconomics pertaining to multipliers of closed and open economy, IS-LM etc.
These are some recommended references
c. Or any other standard Macroeconomics text book.
4) Mathematical Economics: Stressed should be laid on series, sequences, functions and relations, sets, basic calculus such as integration and differentiation. Incorporate notions of implications, quantifiers etc. in Logic.
The references are:
c. Refer to the appendix of any standard book of mathematics for the Logic section.
5) General Knowledge: Preliminary knowledge of national and international economy and regular surfing of newspapers will be enough. Comprehension: Any passage from famous economists’ work will be quoted as a comprehension question. Analytical understanding of basic economics should suffice the purpose. Note: It has been observed that previous years’ questions are frequently repeated, therefore, suggestion is to solve previous years’ questions, available in JNU, at the time of application process. Questions should be solved preferably in a group as it helps built better understanding and to correct solutions of the questions.

UGC Solved Question Papers also will be a great help for you. But don’t depend merely on solved question papers as the questions may be changed every year.

Be critical in nature and if d critical appreciation fails to impress the examiners then d paper will not b graded, i mean the othr answers will not b chkd.. and wen u say abt poetry appreciation, ask them to keep it as original n fresh as possible.. instead of writing paragraphs on the stale old rhyme scheme n figures of speech ask them to tackle the themes they can cull out frm the piece. try to relate the themes to current trends in literature n theory.. and ask them to have a fairly rough idea (atleast) on literary theories, chief being marxism, feminism, reader-response, postcolonialism n othr marginality issues.. books alone ll work in jnu n u gotta make ur examiner blv that u hav actually read more than a BA Pass student..
