I saw that the general perception of a class VIII student about Aryabhatta Exam is 'Its tough! I cannot manage its preparation with my studies'. But the fact is you just have to give it a try. If you have seriously solved previous year papers of Aryabhatta. It will at least make a difference in the way you think about it.

You can get the previous year paper from the following link.

I had already posted the solution to 29th ARYABHATTA INTER-SCHOOL MATHEMATICS COMPETITION – 2012. In case you need any help regarding any particular topic from syllabus or any question related to exam or you need solutions for the previous year papers... simply post your queries.

Best Wishes
