Advantages of Solving Past Papers
The best source of new questions
Impossible though it may seem, it takes a lot more effort to CREATE questions rather than solve them. And thus, you are not going to get questions based on new concepts every other book or study material you open. All the renowned professors and paper-setters will reserve their new questions for mock tests. This is where the true test of your mettle comes in. Because solving new questions in a book is very different to solving those same questions in a paper, where any calculation error or reading mistake may result in unnecessary loss of marks.
Helps in Revision
Sample papers are the best resource to revise. Solving a sample paper on a daily basis after completing the syllabus is the best way of revision for students. The sample paper consists of the questions from the entire syllabus, so solving it helps students to evaluate their exam preparation. They get to know how many questions they were able to answer correctly and how many of them went wrong. Accordingly, they can work and identify the loophole in their preparation to score high marks in the exam.
