Studying Previous Year Exam Papers To Prepare For Competitive Exams

Keyur Patel     05:49     0
Today Scenario of Competitive Exams has changed.

Only few Competitive Exams are left to pen and papers. Competitive Exams are moving towards Digital Revolution. Competitive Exams are adopting Digital Technology. Now, all major Competitive Exams are Computer Based.

According to change in Exam style, we have change our preparation methods. No online preparation platform is capable to give same feel as original exam other than previous exam papers. You may have head this advice hundred times. But, No one take seriously. Previous papers are very useful tool to prepare for Competitive Exams. Previous exam papers are the only reliable source of information that can help you to prepare well. They can help you to use your time wisely on each section of paper. And It is true for all Competitive Exams.

Let's talk about benefits of studying previous year exam papers.

Benefits Of Studying Previous Year Papers

Indian Paper-setters are not that fast changing. It is not a bad idea to take a glimpse of previous year papers. Paper-setter are going to just rephrase the question or change numerical values. Apart from that there are many other benefits to provoke you to study previous year papers.
  • They will help you to better understand Exam Pattern.
  • You will come to know what type of question you are going to face on exam day.
  • They can drastically improve your time management.
  • You can identify key areas to focus.
  • You will realize your strong and weak areas.
  • Previous Papers also work as Confidence booster.
  • Finally, you will realize overall picture of exam pattern. 
By appearing for dozen of mock tests and previous papers available online or offline, you can have better understanding of your strong areas. So, you can focus more on your weak areas to improve. Solving previous papers will help you to :
  • Improve your weak areas.
  • Know What you already Know !
  • Focus on your strong areas to score more.
  • Develop strategy to solve any kind of problem within permitted time.
  • Save you from wasting time on area which is less likely to pop up on D-Day.
  • Get Idea about where you stand and where you want to reach.
For me, most important benefit of studying previous papers is that it helps you to develop time management skill which is requires to crack any Competitive Exam. If you spend too much time on Quantitative Section than you will end up missing some easy questions from verbal Section. If you have appeared for enough practice test then you will have better understanding of time required for each section. So, you will never end up missing some easy questions.

From studying previous papers, you will come to know how Paper-setter can use words to make question look harder. You will be able to see recurring patter across past papers, too. So, you can have idea about types of question that may pop up again.

Apart from that, result of your Mock Test also works as Mirror. It shows you where you stand in terms of preparation. Where do you lack? Where you can improve? But, it is necessary to do result analysis. 

Numerous strategies are available online for each and every exams. These strategies may work for your friend. But, they may not suite you. So, it is wise to develop own strategy. Studying previous papers will help you to develop your personal strategy for D-Day. Also, you can mold or fine-tune strategy for different kind of questions.

If you were using previous papers to prepare for Competitive Exams than It's Excellent. Keep Going. And If you were not, then above benefits are more than enough to make you understand the value of previous papers. 

Best Of Luck.

10 Colleges With 100 Percent Acceptance Rate

Keyur Patel     05:49     0

Acceptance rate of University plays major role while applying for any college. Acceptance rate of any college works like an Indicator. It can tell you what are your chances of getting an admission. But, It is not only factor that can affect your admission.

Students applying for CUNY—​College of Staten Island in New York can be relaxed about their admission. Because, acceptece rate of CUNY—​College of Staten Island in Fall 2013 was 100 percent ! It means CUNY—​College of Staten Island welcomed every students with open hands.

It is not only college with acceptance rate of 100 percent. There are other 9 colleges that are following similar trend. 83 schools in US has acceptance rate above 90 percent. Feeling sorry for that schools because they couldn't made into this list !

Similarly, 11,439 students applied for CUNY—​College of Staten Island in Fall 2014. Out of 11,439 students CUNY accepted 10753 students. That's almost 94 percent acceptance rate. But, only 23 percent student accepted admission offer. That's really weird.

University Acceptance Rate
University of Pikeville (KY) 100%
City University of Seattle 100%
CUNY—​College of Staten Island 100%
CUNY—​Medgar Evers College 100%
Bismarck State College 100%
Metropolitan State University 100%
Jarvis Christian College 100%
Missouri Western State University 100%
Oklahoma State University—​Oklahoma City 100%
Indian River State College (FL) 100%

Here one thing should be noted that almost all college with 100 percent acceptance rate were regional schools or universities. They offer a wide range of undergraduate programs. They also offer master's and doctoral programs. But, they are few.

Schools mentioned above are not highly selective. Since its difficult task for them to come up in Top 50 University List. Top 10 Universities in US are highly selective. So, its difficult task to get into it for even brilliant students. It is really hard nut to crack. For Example, Princeton University has acceptance rate of 7.4 percent. So, It should not be surprise for you to hear that Princeton University is ranked first among National Universities.

JEE-MAIN : Chemistry Practice Question Series - 1 [Solution]
JEE-MAIN : Chemistry Practice Question Series - 1 [Solution]


(1) Among the electrolytes Na2SO4, CaCl2, Al2(SO4)3 and NH4Cl, the most effective coagulating agent for Sb2S3 sol is

(A) Na2SO4 (B) CaCl2 (C) Al2(SO4)3 (D) NH4Cl

Sol.: According to Hardy–Schulze rule, the coagulating power of an ion is directly proportional to the magnitude of its charge. So, For negatively charged Sb2S3 sol, the most effective coagulating agent would be Al2(SO4)3 . Correct choice: (C)

(2 ) Given that the abundances of isotopes 54Fe, 56Fe and 57Fe are 5%, 90% and 5%, respectively, the atomic mass of Fe is

(A) 55.85 (B) 55.95 (C) 55.75 (D) 56.06

Sol.: Average atomic mass of an element = ∑AiXi where Ai and Xi represents the atomic mass and mole fraction of the component in the mixture. Average atomic mass of Fe =(54×5)+(56×90)+(57×5)/100 = 55.95 Correct choice: (B)

(3) The Henry’s law constant for the solubility of N2 gas in water at 298 K is 1.0 × 105 atm. The mole fraction of N2 in air is 0.8. The number of moles of N2 from air dissolved in 10 moles of water at 298 K and 5 atm pressure is

(A) 4.0 × 10–4 (B) 4.0 × 10–5 (C) 5.0 × 10–4 (D) 4.0 × 10–6

Sol.: According to Henry’s law PN2 = KN2 XN2 Where K is the Henry’s constant (in atm) and XN2 is mole fraction of N2. PN2 = XN2 PT = 0.8 × 5 atm = 4.0 atm. 4 atm = 1.0 × 105 atm × XN2 4 × 10–5 = nN2 = nN2 nN2 + nH2O nN2 + 10 nN2 = 4 × 10-4 moles Correct choice: (A)

(4) Among cellulose, poly(vinyl chloride), nylon and natural rubber, the polymer in which the intermolecular force of attraction is weakest is

(A) Nylon (B) Poly(Vinyl chloride) (C) Cellulose (D) Natural Rubber

Sol.: Nylon and cellulose, both have intermolecular hydrogen bonding whereas polyvinyl chloride has dipole-dipole interaction. Natural rubber will have London forces which are weakest. Correct choice: (D)

(5) The term that corrects for the attractive forces present in a real gas in the van der Waals equation is

(A) nb (B) an2/V2 (C) an2/V2 (D) -nb

Sol.: The attractive forces in a real gas decreases its pressure relative to an ideal gas. Pr = Pi - an2/V; Pi = Pr + an2/V The term that accounts for decrease in pressure due to attractive forces among molecules of a real gas must be added to the real gas pressure (observed) to get the ideal gas pressure. Correct choice: (B)

(6) The reaction of P4 with X leads selectively to P4O6. The X is

(A) Dry O2 (B) A mixture of O2 and N2 (C) Moist O2 (D) O2 in the presence of aqueous NaOH

Sol.: P4 reacts with O2 in limited supply of air (a mixture of O2 and N2) to give P4O6. P4 + 3O2 limited supply of air→ P4O6. Correct choice: (B)

Thank You.
