‘For MVPP exam, one must solve previous year’s question papers’

Tanush Gupta, Apeejay Panchsheel Park student shares his preparation strategy for the Mukhyamantri Vigyan Pratibha Pariksha (MVPP), a Science talent hunt exam



Tanush Gupta loves Math and Physics. Just give him an interesting Mathematics question and the Apeejay Panchsheel Park student will forget everything else when he sits to solve it. Perhaps, this is why Tanush secured a remarkable rank in the MVPP (Mukhyamantri Vigyan Pratibha Pariksha), a Science talent hunt exam, held earlier this year. In an engaging interview, the class 10 student says how solving previous year question papers came to his aid. Edited excerpts: 

Tell us about your preparation regime?

In terms of preparation, I practiced a lot of previous year question papers, some 3 to 4 days before the exam. I downloaded the question papers and started solving the questions – primarily Math and Physics. I would say I studied for about 1-2 hours daily before the exam.

How did your school Apeejay Panchsheel Park help you to prepare for the MVPP exam?

Firstly, the school took care of all the formalities such as issuing the admit card, etc. The school teachers teach so well in the class that all my concepts were already clear – be it in Math or Chemistry. The teachers even called me during the preparation days to ask about my preparation or if I faced any difficulty. I would like to thank Kapil sir especially for his constant support.

What subject did you enjoy the most while preparing for the exam?

I mostly practiced questions, I did not read much of theory. I enjoyed Math and Science the most. I now feel that I should have studied some of the theories in Social Studies. I should have read the chapters at least. But some of the Math questions were so interesting, in fact,  a few of them were from class 11 level. So, I gave it more time. I simply loved solving the Math questions.

What are your future targets?

I want to study Math and Physics in great detail. In my 12th, I plan to take Science including Physics, Chemistry and Math. I am not really interested in pursuing engineering but I have a lot of passion for Math and Physics.

What advice would you like to give to a student who is preparing for the MVPP exam?

I would say if you are starting to prepare, you must start with solving previous year’s question papers first. I downloaded all the previous year question papers as my first step. After that, you must do your studies sincerely. One does not have to study anything apart from NCERT textbooks and concepts taught in class.
