Ques. What is a recommended book for the BHU PET entrance exam for an MA in economics?

● Top Answer By Deepak Tiwari on 25 Jan 21

Ans. In earlier question papers, you can notice that the stress was laid primarily on Economics (40%), Math’s (40%), and Indian Economy questions (20%).  But with the onset of 2019, the pattern was changed. Now, the focus of the questions are on - English grammar (std. 4th level) and objective math questions such as upstream/downstream questions, simple interest, ratio proportion, etc. In other words, the mathematics questions were akin to the questions asked in Bank Clerical Exams. Previous Years Question Paper: An example of the official question which was asked in the 2019 question paper was – “What is the technical word for the person who cleans the windows?” On analyzing this question, one can say that this question has no relation to the economic stream of study whatsoever. The pattern of the entrance is similar to the previous year’s pattern. Recommended Books: The list of books which you can follow, as per the changed examination pattern in the year 2019 and 2020, are as follows. Books Author Objective Quantitative Aptitude R.S. Aggarwal Objective General English R.S. Aggarwal Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning R.S. Aggarwal Current Affairs R.S. Aggarwal If you are aware of any other book, by any other author, designed for the bank clerical examinations then, you can prepare from those books as well. The above-recommended books are selected and short-listed based on three factors- Changed entrance pattern in 2019. References from appeared students. Objective Overview of PET. When you appear for other entrances of economics, such as The Delhi School of Economics Entrance, ISI MSQE entrance, etc. you feel a sense of challenge. You develop a sense of intellectuality which later on transforms into satisfaction, irrespective of the success in the entrance or not.  However, this feeling is absent in the BHU PET entrance exams. In this case, you will feel like you have appeared for a bank clerical exam of the railway recruitment board owing to the type of questions asked of the economics-based students. Following the above-mentioned entrance pattern, getting admitted through BHU PET is achievable if you are well-prepared for Bank clerical exams. Thus, it won’t be extremely tough if you are aware and prepared accordingly.Read more

Ques. What is the syllabus for BHU PET Statistics?

● Top Answer By Himani Nayak on 25 Jan 21

Ans. The first issue which you might face while preparing for the PET entrance examination for BHU is the lack of detailed information regarding the syllabus for the examination.  A detailed syllabus is not given in the entrance information brochure for the BHU PET. The only piece of relevant information is regarding the type of questions in the entrance paper- the questions which will be present in the question paper will be taken from the syllabus which is taught in BHU U.G. ( BA Statistics) course. However, this does not apply to all the courses because the syllabus for the UG course varies from one university to another. Therefore, a student can’t know for sure if the chapters taught to them by their respective university is included in the BHU curriculum or not unless he/she has a concrete syllabus in their hands from BHU. Previous year questions: If you are unfamiliar with the syllabus of BHU or haven't been a former student of BHU in the past, go through the previous year’s question papers. You can find it easily on the BHU official website  Statistics Syllabus: To answer the above question, for a Statistics paper you need to be well-versed with the concepts of statistics which he/she studied in their graduation days. The question paper division for Statistics paper (2020) is as follows.  Total Duration – 150 minutes for the entire paper Total number of questions asked – 150 questions Segregation of the questions- 125 questions from the area of statistics and 25 questions will be along the baseline of statistical computing with the use of high-level language programming like FORTRAN and C. Revision of the previous year's question papers will give you a sense of familiarity with the topics covered, therefore, you can keep a note of the important topics to be covered for the entrance. This will ensure the attainment of high marks.Read more

Ques. How should I prepare for the BHU PET in zoology?

● Top Answer By Samar Majhi on 16 Jan 21

Ans. For the BHU PET Examination for masters in Zoology requires the candidates to have a fair knowledge of Zoology concepts till graduation level. The examination is to measure your control and awareness over the syllabus of zoology and the concepts covered. The table below shows the expected cut-offs for M.Sc Zoology in BHU PET, according to recent data. Category Cut-off General 90-105 OBC 47-67 SC 44-68 ST 30-48 BHU General 65-79 BHU OBC 28-38 BHU SC 16-28 BHU ST 2-8 Key highlights for the preparation of BHU PET in zoology: Candidates should have a clear concept about the topics of zoology till graduation level.  The candidates may go through past year papers for understanding examination patterns and topics. Concepts about topics that are not in the syllabus for undergraduates and having a solid foundation of basic principles may help the candidate during the interview.  For instance, some of the off-topics my friend came across were Genetic Modification experiments on animals and plants and the stage of commercial exploitation that happens due to this in countries like India. In addition, how can Genetic Modification help India in the production of food fauna on a large scale, is another experimental approach she worked on. Destruction of stabilized Gene pool in Indian fauna due to GM experiments is another topic with a huge resource.  The third-year B.Sc syllabus of Zoology generally has the maximum importance and should be covered as much as possible. Time management is an important aspect of every entrance exam. Solving previous year and model question papers helps in framing the timeframe and most feasible approach for BHU PET.Read more

Ques. How should I prepare for the BHU-PET (M.A. in political science)?

● Top Answer By Suryansh Khatri on 16 Jan 21

Ans. My brother started preparations for BHU-PET for M.A. in political science with topics covered in the last three years question papers. He had a brief idea about the topics taught at graduation level (political science). He also revised and practiced sample papers of BHU-PET. These question papers are available at the BHU website.  The table below has a list of books that can be helpful as a reference for BHU-PET (M.A. in political science). Subject Book name/author Indian Polity M. Laxmikant Political Theory O.P. Gauba Some important topics to cover for BHU-PET (M.A. in political science): A major part of the entrance paper is generally asked from political theories, their founding fathers. Also, the constitution of India, and its comparison with other countries in the world. Candidates should have ideas about the recent political theories and the current behavior of the Indian polity. The role of International Relations and the multilateralism policy that a country follows towards relations with other countries is an essential topic. The Indian freedom struggle and its rebel against colonial rule and oppression cover a good portion of the paper in general. Supreme Court Verdicts mostly on social and public welfare. Along with the recent constitutional amendments. These are some of the vast topics that have scope for a lot of questions in BHU-PET for MA in Political Science.Read more
