Solving Mock Test Paper – Is It Useful

Putting yourself to test after acquiring knowledge is probably the best way to judge your progress. By solving Mock Test Paper, you may realise your weaknesses, while you may be under a false belief of knowing everything all along. It also makes you alert about the areas where there is scope for improvement. It moulding you towards gaining a sound and rational perspective.

Thus it is important to explore the varying angles. In which questions might be asked on a particular topic or subject. The best way to do this is to solve previous years question papers. This will make you understand the pattern of the forthcoming exam or test. This also helps you to look at the syllabus and study material at hand with a comprehensive approach.

Identifying the relevant question paper is more important than practising it. You should solve old and outdated mock test paper. This habit may help you to understand the overall pattern followed over the years. It also helps by giving a vast range of questions to practice. But their vast range can be more time-consuming.

Focusing more on the latest ones will narrow down your quest for answers and save on the crucial time. The syllabus and course structure changing in every new session. So the questions and their pattern is changing too. In such case, previous question papers may help to understand the broader context and content of the syllabus. The question paper also acquaints the student with an open mind to answer different questions in the exam.

However, some students still follow the simple approach of studying the whole syllabus. They do not take any external help of mock test paper. Let us look at both the studying patterns to understand what is good.

Time Management Skills:

Many students would think that referring old question papers is time-consuming. But solving question papers is probably the best way to assess your writing speed. It also good to improve the time management. Completing the exam is more important than anything else. Only a structured practice through previous question papers can help in overcoming unnecessary time slips, especially in long answers. This also helps in condensing lengthy responses to make them crisp. This includes only the most relevant information.

Confidence Boost:

Students should solve a few mock test paper before the actual exam. This practice takes you in the right frame of mind to take up the challenge that lies ahead. It has a great motivating appeal as you feel mentally confident of your preparation. It also develops a deeper understanding of the subject at hand. This helps in opening up to the various possible questions in the exam, assuring more comprehensive responses.

Identify Important Topics/Areas of Questions:

Scanning previous years' question papers is the best way to identify important study areas from the teacher's' point of view. Students can then structure their preparation, prioritising the important topics and studying them carefully.

Narrows Down Understanding:

Against solving previous question papers, the biggest argument is the limited outlook. Some students believes that such mock test paper tends to narrow down the perspective. Because such type of paper making them focus only on the relevant topics. So student ignores the overall understanding of the subject. They would also argue that every topic in syllabus has been included with some objective in mind. It is related to the others in more than one way.

Thus, paying attention only to certain topics compromises on the essence of that subject.While the arguments may be unending. It all ultimately depends on a student's pattern of studying and what makes him/her excel in exams. The focus should not be only on perform better in exams every time. The focus should also be to gain insight into the field one is educating in, for a wholesome understanding.
