One of the main definitions of economics is “the creation, consumption, and transfer of wealth”.
Economics being one of the main social science subjects at the Advanced Level means it has more to offer in the society. In this sense students/individuals must have a vast knowledge about this knowledge. So, in order to help students prepare for the upcoming CGCE examinations, we have put together a quiz which is to help students overcome their challenges during the examination.
This quiz is composed of past CGCE question of the June session of 2018. The quiz is made up of 15 questions with each question having 4 different options. The 15 questions are mainly on the topics of “demand, economic growth, employment etc.”
The purpose of this quiz is to help you (students), build your confidence when going in for the examination and also to help orientate you on the type of questions you might encounter during the examination.
On completion of this quiz, you can then move on to the next.
