Why is Solving UPSC Prelims 2013 Question Paper Important for Preparation?
Candidates preparing for the UPSC examination must focus on practicing previous years’ question papers, including that of 2013, for the following reasons:
To Understand the Format of the Examination
Solving previous years’ UPSC Prelims examination papers will help candidates gain an understanding of the exam format including the type of questions asked, amount of focus on different subjects, weightage given to various topics in a subject, and marking scheme among others.
To Get Better with Practice
Practice makes perfect. The more a civil service aspirant practises old papers, the better she/he gets at figuring out the questions as well as their answers. Practice also helps candidates better identify their areas of academic strength and weakness.
To Learn the Art of Time management
Despite being well-prepared, aspirants are often not able to complete the Prelims paper. Adequately practising previous years’ papers is one surefire way to improve your speed. One, you will get familiar with the type of questions asked. Two, you will know exactly where you need to allot more time and where, less.
Solving a previous year’s question paper is an invaluable tool for self evaluation. It helps you assess where you stand with respect to exam preparation. Moreover, it helps you identify your areas of weakness, so you can work to improve them. In a nutshell, an effective preparation strategy must include solving old question papers.
To Identify Themes & Topics
The UPSC Prelims General Studies Paper I includes several questions pertaining to national and international current affairs. Solving old question papers helps candidates identify at least some of the relevant themes and topics around which questions are framed. For instance, questions related to International Relations, National & International Treaties, Environmental treaties, and Government programmes and schemes are commonly asked in the exam.
