*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.*
