IGCSE Economics: Some questions start with a statement, e.g. about India or Kenya. Do the students have to know about these economies?

No, they do not. The introductory quotation or statement is intended as stimulus material only. Sometimes, particularly in Paper 2 (Structured Questions) or the multiple choice paper, candidates will have to work with data given, but they are not expected to have prior knowledge of a specific economy.

Candidates will receive credit for illustrating their answers, where relevant, with examples from their own economy or any economy that they have studied.
