How to prepare for DSE Entrance Exam (Delhi School of Economics)

PrepareHere are some candid thoughts on how to prepare for the DSE entrance exam. This post is focused on Option A (Economics) of the DSE entrance. I'll write a follow up post on Option B. The objective of this is to help any and all students going for the DSE entrance exam (or any other MA economics entrance exam) irrespective of whether you choose to work with CrackDSE or not.

1. Choosing the right option

At the time of applying the DSE entrance exam, you will have to choose whether you want to go for "merit" based or "exam" based consideration for admission. The former is only for students who are studying or have studied B.A. (Hons.) Economics at Delhi University. If you are from any other course or any other university, pick the "exam" based approach.

The DSE entrance exam will test your knowledge of Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Probability, Statistics, Econometrics, Game Theory, Mathematics and Logical Ability. The percentage of marks from each section varies quite significantly each year, with little to no predictability. See the table below for instance (the percentages are estimates)

Option B: now scrapped.

This option is no longer provided. It used to focus on Mathematics, and was ideal for candidates with a Mathematics background. Now, all students give the same exam, irrespective of their academic background.

2. Pattern of the paper (DSE Entrance Option A)

DSE entrance option A consists of 2 sections:

  1. Section 1: 20 multiple choice questions. Marking scheme: +1 for the correct answer, -1/3 for a wrong answer, 0 for unattempted question
  2. Section 2: 40 multiple choice questions. Marking scheme: +2 for the correct answer, -2/3 for a wrong answer, 0 for unattempted question

From 2014, even JNU SSS entrance exam has shifted to this pattern!

3. Books you can refer to

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list. I welcome suggestions for other books that you may have found useful for the DSE entrance exam (please mention them in the comments section below)

  • Microeconomics: Hal Varian (Intermediate Microeconomics), Hal Varian Workbook, Osborne (for Game Theory), Bernheim & Whinston (also a good book)
  • Macroeconomics: Dornbusch and Fischer, O. Blanchard, Development Economics by Debraj Ray (for Solow and Harrod Domar growth models), William Branson's book (for general equilibrium questions). Alternatively, you can get hold of the Macro reading prescribed by Delhi University for the 2nd year students (3yr program). This should have most of the relevant content from the first three books.
  • Econometrics and Statistics: Gujarati’s Introductory Econometrics, Degroot and Schervish
  • Mathematics: Sydsaeter and Hammond, A. Chiang's "Fundamental Methods of Mathematical Economics". However, the exam also goes into a fair amount of maths that you learnt in Classes 11 and 12 in school. I recommend digging up those old R.S. Aggarwal/ S.P. Sharma books and go through the relevant topics in those books (i.e. solve questions; the relevant topics are probability, functions, limits and continuity)

If you don't know where to get the readings from, ask your peers/ seniors. These should be easy to get hold of.

4. Additional Resources

The most important thing to do (as with any exam in India) is to solve the past years' exam papers. You can find them in the "Resources" section of this website (or click here)

There are several people that offer coaching for this exam now. You will find that the available options span the entire range from terrible to over-priced 🙂 . So, please be careful about who you choose, if any. Some criteria you should consider when deciding to pick a tutor (feel free to suggest others in the comments):

The basics

  1. How big is a batch? (most are too big to be effective)
  2. How many lectures are offered? How long does a batch last?
  3. What is the structure adopted for preparation?
  4. What will be the fees? (what do you think is a reasonable price to charge a student?)
  5. Do they cover all the subjects: Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Probability, Statistics, Econometrics, Game Theory, Mathematics and Logical Ability? (refer to the table above for the relative importance of the subjects)
  6. Does the preparation extend only to DSE? Are there different classes for ISI, JNU or IGIDR for instance?

Digging deeper

  1. What do they teach that you haven't learnt in graduation already? Is the extra stuff they teach necessary? -- THIS IS THE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION (you'll find that some tutors deliberately go for an overkill on specific subjects. And this is done at the cost of not teaching you what you actually need to know in other subjects! Why do they do this? Beats me. In any case, students' welfare is definitely not the reason!)
  2. What are the credentials of the teachers? Are these teachers actually good at teaching?
  3. Ask why they are better than the competition!?

5. A couple of parting thoughts...

There is no right time really, but start preparing as soon as you can (start of your final year in college is a great time to start). For an average student, I would say 4 to 5 months of preparation time is needed for the various entrance exams. So, at the very latest, start by January of the year in which you plan to give the exam (which is almost always in June).

Also, a lot of students worry about the cutoff for the exam. In my opinion, trying to guesstimate that is a cardinal sin. Instead of spending time on that, do a few more questions -- that would help a lot more 🙂

Keep calm and study hard! Good luck!

If you have any other queries, post below as a comment. You can also email me at [email protected]

  • Jasmine

    What is the expected cut off for 2014 ?

    • CrackDSE

      It's always hard to say what the cutoff will be. As I mentioned in my post above, it's futile to speculate on the cutoffs. I heard from a lot of students that their exam halls nearly emptied out mid way. This tells you how hard the exam was, and consequently, the cutoff will be much lower. (I'm referring to DSE Entrance Exam Option A here)

      • rajat chhetri

        sir i m pursuing my graduation nd m in 3rd year,doing my graduation frm north bengal university..am a b.com management(hons) student ..so will i be able to sit for the m.com entrance's exam at dse.. nd if so then i will be graduated by june 2015.. nd wen i should fill up the forms.. nd also as i m far, so will u be able to provide me for the study material ... nd probably frm wen to start the preparations

        • CrackDSE

          Hi Rajat, I don't know anything about the M.Com entrance. I help students with MA Economics entrance only.

          • rajat chhetri

            thankyou.. but can u suggest me any other alternative that can help me...

          • CrackDSE

            sorry, i really don't know of anyone who helps with M.Com. It's a completely different subject from mine, and so my knowledge of it is practically non-existent

    • CrackDSE

      If you saw the results, the cutoff was ~40. But they likely increased everyone's score by ~10marks to make the cutoff look like it is close to 40!

  • rahul

    After cracking the entrance exam can I adopt anyother subject in place of mathematics? For doing M.A in Economics?

    • CrackDSE

      Rahul, I didn't quite follow your question. Do you mean, can you avoid doing the maths courses in DSE's MA program? if that's the question, the answer is no

  • rohit mehra

    sir , i had a few questions regarding your coaching _
    1. How many classes will you take ? if the amount of classes are less , will it be sufficient for the preparation ? how many hours do you teach in one class?
    2.. You are from stanford , so the way you teach will it be hard or in a way everyone understands? what is your teaching methodology? do you teach from the basics or you teach in a way that assumes that students know economics properly?
    3. The success rate you mentioned could you please tell us the like how many students got selected and batch size?
    4. i am a bit weak in maths (certain areas) , can you accommodate and help in these issues also while teaching ?
    5. can we attend a sample class to see how you teach?
    6. and if you could answer the questions you mentioned above in your article too .

    thank you!

    • CrackDSE

      Thanks for the questions Rohit. Answers:
      1. Each class is 6hrs. There's one class per week. Course length is 5months. If the need be, I hold extra classes. The course will finish in 5months.
      2. If my students didn't understand what I teach, I wouldn't be much of a teacher, would I? 🙂 I get students from all backgrounds. I assume very little on part of the students. I help them in any way they need. But I do expect them to work hard. No two ways about that.
      3. In my most recent batch, 35% of the students have made it to DSE or JNU (mind you, 50% of my class was non-eco background)
      4. Yep, I can. Maths is a common weakness that needs to be overcome. I'll help in every way I can, but you'll have to do the hard work.
      5. Yes, of course you can attend a trial class. The trial class for my next batch will be on Aug 2, 2014
      6. haha... good job asking me to answer my own questions!
      the basics
      - my target batch size is 30
      - already answered the course length etc qn
      - there is a mix of theory, questions, homework etc. We'll cover all the heavily tested areas in great detail. The less tested areas will receive less attention in class (the 80-20 rule).
      - fees is 20K for the entire course. I'm keeping it low now. But it will go up in the near future.
      - yes, all subjects are covered. all exams are covered
      digging deeper
      - this is my secret sauce! So i can't state it fully in a public forum. But suffice to say here that I train you to develop a problem solving habit, and not a memorisation approach.This requires understanding each student's strengths and weaknesses and train them accordingly (which requires close attention, and hence the small batch size). If you want to know more, please call me. I'll be happy to discuss this further.
      - you can check out my credentials on the about page (http://crackdse.com/aboutus/)
      - for all the reasons above! I've tried my best to give you the complete package and still keep the cost low.

  • Preity

    sir, actually I want to know about fee structure, and duration of the course.

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Preity, the course length is 5months. The fees is Rs.20,000 only. This is an introductory price, that will go up for future batches. Happy to answer any other questions you might have.

  • rohit mehra

    sir , if it is not too much i had a few more questions
    for the maths section .. 1>how do you teach maths ? (teach concept and give sum for practice or how do you teach it)
    2>do you teach the maths required for ISI ?
    3>you mentioned 80/20 rule so does that mean all topics will not be covered in great detail? because the heavy tested areas vary from one entrance to another.

    • CrackDSE

      1. Yep, that's how I do it. But Maths is all about practice, which I give enough of to my students
      2. Yep, maths for ISI is covered
      3. It is certainly not possible to cover every topic in class. If I would try to do that, I can't go deep into any topic. The topics that I leave for self-study are the easiest ones. My students are well-prepared for all exams

  • era

    I want to appear for the exam in 2015 and right now i am doing eco honors from PU and here we do not put much focus on maths and i am weak in maths though i have started practicing it! I saw last years papers and mostly there are maths questions and less of micro macro etc! So basically we need to be really strong in maths to crack MA eco entrance????

    • CrackDSE

      As the table in my post shows, Maths tends to hover 20% to 30% in Delhi School of Economics entrance exam. So while the exam isn't completely Maths focussed, it is still very important. I would strongly recommend that you work on it.

  • Amit Thakur

    I am currently doin eco hons from du and right now i am in second year so i will be giving exam in 2016 . I am intrested in both dse and isi but i am bit confused about preparation. If i had to prepare separately for both or preparation for both are equivalent. Also i am interested to know which has a better carrier prospect !!

    • CrackDSE

      ISI tends to be more mathematical than DSE. So you'll have to focus more on maths for ISI. You can and should prepare for both as ISI has very few seats.
      Career prospects are good after either of these two. Both have good placements.

  • bhavika

    Hello sir.. i am doing my UG with statistics so should i go for option B? So can you please elaborate the pattern of option B. and a little more worthy tips to focus through this option.? 🙂

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Bhavika, option B may be a little too hard I feel. It is ideal for someone with a Maths background. Picking up two/three years of economics is much easier than two/three years of mathematics.

  • Paras Kumar Jasrai

    Sir, what is the ideal time for taking coaching for DSE exam.? i m currently in 2nd yr in DU..

  • sejal nanda

    Sir
    What is the minimum required percentage in B.A economics to get through the merit option?

    • CrackDSE

      I think it went down to ~80% (average of 3 years for Eco (H) students of DU) in the general cateogry

  • abhishek

    Hi SIr.. I had completed B.Sc from DU in 2006 and I am working since then.I want to study further and make a career shift. I want to study economics from a premier institute like DSE that offers good career opportunities also.. Would it be appropriate to make that shift now or am I too late?

  • Ayush Khandelwal

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Akanksha, please see the above post for the books. I have mentioned them there. As of now I don't have a crash course planned. Please do check with me in april for that.

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Harsh, right now I don't provide any course material. There are a few things in development that will aid with distance learning. So please check back in a couple of months. No crash course is planned either at this time. If there will be one, it will likely be in may+june

  • Shreya pandey

    Hello sir...this is shreya....em a first year student of b.a. with economics as one of my subject with English n psychology. ..bt I had maths in my 11th &12th...For p.g. I want to seek admission in DSE..
    So how should I prepare?? N which option will benefit me most! !!!!

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Shreya, you should definitely go for Option A. In terms of preparation, you'll have to cover a fair bit of ground. You can start by taking micro, macro, maths and stats readings from your friends in Eco (Hons). You could also start reading the books I have mentioned in the blog above. Given that you're in your first year, this is rather early to start preparing, but if you can keep up to speed with the Eco (Hons) course material, it will hold you in good stead when you come to the third yr and start preparing full steam.

      • Shreya pandey

        Thank u so much sir.....!!!!!!
        I will contact you again if I will find any problem regarding the same.....!!!!!

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Shreya, you will have to study economics at the level of Economics (Hons) for the DSE entrance. I am not sure what your Economics course is like, but I think it will not be sufficient. You should definitely go for Option A. Please refer to the above post on guidance on how to study for Option A.

  • Vatsal Singh

    Hello Sir, I have completed my B.Com(Honours) from Amity University. My high school in Bangalore was affiliated to Cambridge International Examination. Hence I did my A-Levels and scored decent marks in Economics. Economics in A-Levels is more sophisticated than CBSE, hence we covered Microeconomic and Macroeconomic theories in detail. I have always been passionate about Economics. Adam Smith's 'Wealth of Nations' has been on my bookshelf since 11th grade. I am planning to prepare for DSE as I believe it would be the right step.

    Do you think there would be any problem regarding my graduation from Amity University ? Because I know people can be sceptical about students from Amity.

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Vatsal, it's great to see your passion for Economics!
      Nope, being from Amity does not hinder your chances in any way.

        Hi sir

        I'm currently pursuing my BA (H) in economics at SRCC and am extremely torn between pursuing a master's in economics v/s an MBA. If I do choose a master's I'm uncertain between D School and foreign universities like LSE or other US / European universities. Finally, I'm currently averaging an 80 odd percent after two years, do you think it'll be sufficient for entry via the direct / merit based admission scheme at d school ? Any clue on last year's cutoff ? I appreciate your help and look forward to a response. Sorry for the long post !

  • Kuntal Chaudhuri

    Hello Sir, I'm in 2nd year B.com(Honours) from Calcutta University.
    So, it's not possible to attend for me your coaching classes in Delhi. Do you've any distance program or online course for those students who don't stay in Delhi ?
    I'm planning to prepare for DSE and St.Stephen's College, any tips for now ?
    One more question, is St.Stephen's College that good for MA in Economics ?

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Kuntal, I don't have an online or distance learning offering at the moment. I'll let you know when that is live. In terms of self-study, there's no substitute for reading the books I've mentioned above. You should start now as it'll take you time to pick up stuff since you're not from an Economics background. But don't let that deter you. It'll be hard, but doable if you put in sufficient effort. Good luck!

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Ajit, this is too early for you to start thinking about the DSE entrance. At the moment you should concentrate on doing well in your undergrad and develop a strong foundation in micro, macro, stats and maths. If you're keen on DSE, one thing you can do is, along with the books recommended in BHU, you can start reading the micro, macro, stats and maths books recommended in DU Eco Hons syllabus http://www.du.ac.in/du/uploads/old-ug-courses/8512_BA_H_Eco.pdf

      Hi Anagha, Since you're still a 1st yr student, please focus on doing well in your college exams and getting a strong foundation in the core subjects of micro, macro, stats & maths. If the books recommended in your university are substantially different from those recommended in Delhi University, you can start reading those (see this for DU Eco Hons syllabus: http://econdse.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/BA-Hon-Readings-2011-2012.pdf)

    Also, kindly suggest a book for practice questions.

    • CrackDSE

      It's fine to stick to your college readings (are you from DU?) as long as you are able to manage the past years questions. If not, consider doing DeGroot or Freund for Stats, Branson for Macro. For micro, Varian is enough, to be honest. But there are other good micro books out there...

        Sir,
        What about DSE ma entrance test,how hard it is,what is the syllabus,what is test cut off,does the ba marks are taken in view with test marks for admission.

        • CrackDSE

          How hard is a difficult question to answer. It depends completely on the student's ability and level of preparation. The cutoff varies each year for the entrance test. You need a minimum of 50% in BA to appear for the entrance (but check DSE's website for the eligibility criteria)

  • virginia

    hello, I am a first year economics honours student from delhi university. It's my dream to get into Dse and i am ready to put as much hardwork as it demands for. I have a few queries:
    1. How do i start preparing for the entrance from this time itself?
    2. what would be the ideal time span to take coaching (2 years or 1 year)
    3. How many marks do i need to score to be elgibile for Entrance.
    4. If i would like to get admission on merit basis then around how much percentage do i require?(approx)
    5. Which is the best choaching institute?

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Virginia,
      1. Focus on Eco (H) content for now. It's important to understand that well to do well in MA entrance exams.
      2. Start of your 3rd year
      3. more than 50%
      4. There is no declared cutoff. But last year, people with ~80% in 3 years of Eco (H) got admission

      5. CrackDSE 🙂

    hello sir . i am a science student (PCB) and have studied economics in class 11 and 12. I want to pursue my career in economics. Please let me know how to solve the mathematics problem for economics as I badly want admission in it. Also which is better hons or general and why. Are there any colleges that offer eco(hons) without maths. Please answer asap.

    • CrackDSE

      Solve the mathematics problem? -- didn't follow the question. I'm a little less familiar with BA Hons admissions criteria. Please check with the respective colleges on that. Hons has much more value. Don't do general if you have the option of doing Hons

  • Mayank Rai

    Hello, well I have seen the eligibility criteria for MA in economics but I am still not sure whether I can appear for their entrance exam with ENGINEERING BACKGROUND??? .. are B.tech students allowed with no economics or little eco background?

    • CrackDSE

      Yes, you are eligible for DSE. If you're still in doubt, call DSE's office. For others, the rules may be different. So best to check with their respective offices

  • Vankush Lall

    hello sir,
    I am currently pursuing Economics Honours from Delhi University.
    I am extremely confused b/w going for an MBA and an MA ECO at DSE. I basically plan to join the corporate sector. So could you provide me a real idea about placements at dse ( possibly from students you maybe knowing currently at Dse or passouts)
    also would taking up MBA after Dse be advisable?

    • CrackDSE

      no point doing MA Eco if your goal is to do an MBA. If you're looking to go in the corporate sector on the business side of things, MBA is better. If you're interested in analytics, MA Eco is better. For DSE's placements, check their placement cell website (http://dsebottomline.com/)

      Yes, DSE reserves 50% of the sets for DU eco hons students. Its hard to say what the cutoff will be, but 65% is on the lower side. You should try to make up in your remaining exams.

      This just means that in the entrance exam, you have to get at least 40 out of 100. But it's not really applied in practice. Don't worry about this.

    Hello sir m m.com student i want do phd in economics so how can possible it plz suggest me

    • CrackDSE

      PhD in Economics after M.Com will be tough. You may have to go back and start with doing an MA in Economics, then M.Phil etc. But please check with the academic department of DSE if you'll be eligible for the M.Phil entrance right away. If you are, you'll have to work hard for the entrance and then even harder during the M.Phil. I am not familiar with the PhD programs of other Indian universities, so I can't comment on those

      Hi Shriya, there are several books in Microeconomics that you can refer to for questions (see this list for instance: https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/microeconomics ). But these do not necessarily cater to the type of questions asked in DSE and ISI. If you'd like, I'm starting an online course soon, you can join that.

    Hello sir ! I am a second year student of BA(Hons) Business Economics, University Of Delhi. I wanted to know that how many seats does DSE offer for non eco hons students ? And also on an average how many people appear for this ? I will be writing this exam in the year 2017. Are there any chances of introducing merit system for Business Economics students as well ?

      Hi Vaibhav, There are 60 seats for non-economics students in the general category. There are no published numbers, but 3-4K students appear for these exams. It's unlikely there will be any merit system for non-eco hons students

    I am a first year student pursuing BA programme course (ECONOMICS AND MATHS COMBINATION) from a regular college of DU.
    I want to pursue my post graduation from a reputed college so i chose DSE
    I am not sure if i chose option A or B

    And please give me more details on when to start preparing for it without dropping a year.

    • CrackDSE

      Hi Riya, there's only one option in DSE now. So no choice there. Yes, you'll be eligible as long as you get more than 50% aggregate marks in your undergrad. The best time to start preparing is the beginning of your last year of college.

      • Riya Singhal

        Thank you so much sir 🙂 Also i would like to know
        Will i able to crack it ? I mean is it too difficult ?

        And 50% agg in all three years needed??

        • CrackDSE

          50% aggregate is needed to be eligible for the exam. As for being able to crack it or not, it'll depend on how hard you work 🙂 You can call me on any weekday to discuss your preparation strategy if you'd like.

Is this the right time to start preparing for MA entrance exams? if yes, please provide some tips on the right way to prepare. If not, when should I ideally start preparations?

      Hi Devolina, I would advise you to focus on your college coursework for now. That'll be the best preparation you can do at the moment! Start with formal training for these exams in the beginning of your final year of college

    Hello sir, I am in my final year BA from Bombay University. My main subjects are statistics and Economics. The problem is i didn't opt for Math in the 11th and 12th. and i wish to appear for the DSE entrance 2016. The books you have recommended;can it be found online in the form of a pdf, because it seems quite expensive to buy those and libraries don't have their latest editions. How do i start preparing and go about it, can you please help?

      Hi Anirudh, if you want to crack DSE or ISI, your maths will have to be strong. You should start working on that ASAP if you think you're weak in Maths. Other than that, start prep for MA Eco entrance exams at the start of your third year.
