As exam seasons draw near, it is getting more and more compelling to know at least partially the questions that would appear on the genuine tests. Of course, now being able to do that for real would be both a blessing – but at the same time, unfortunately, an impossibility. Still, the needs for something as close to a true exam as possible is still there. For that, though, you can do just fine with mock exams composed of tests written by professors, or tests from previous years.
Finding a repository for those exams can be difficult, and moreso when there is countless type of exams out there. ‘Exam Preparation App by Gradeup’ is an app that would solve all of these problems.
The app catered specifically to the Indian students and addressing majority (If not all) of the important exams that students might face during their academic progress. The app claimed to support exams from seven different major exams, being: Bank, SSC, Railway, TET Exams, GATE, UPSC JEE Main, and NEET.
Core subject tests are also provided within the app: Economics, Agriculture & Rural Development for NABARD, Child Development and Pedagogy, Social Science, Science & Maths in Indian’s CTET test. But these are just a couple examples in the various categories and exams covered by the app. But the most popular categories of exam are: RRB ALP & Group D, SSC CGL, CPO, SBI PO, SBI Clerk, RBI Grade B Officer, CTET, DSSSB, IBPS RRB. If you are planning to take any of these, be assured that they are covered in extreme details within the app.

The app developers seem to have taken great care in updating the app annually with the appropriate tests for each year. The developers also claimed that they wrote each tests based on the patterns of the latest exams, so although that they might not be correct word by word, it would be very close to the real thing.
Sections covered by the app are comprehensive: Includes, both notwithstanding to, quantitative aptitude, reasoning, current affairs, English Language Skills, GK Tests. One of the advantage of this app is that it is bilingual: Tests within are not only plentiful in subjects and variances, but they can be found in both Hindi and English alike. Of course, only in exams that covered or is written and done in the latter language. Most tests, since the app is engineered toward Indian students, are written strictly in Hindi.
Besides short mock tests to test your rudimentary skills and knowledge so that you can know which section to enhance before stepping into the exam room. The app also provides full length tests that ought to be printed out and done just as if you are in a genuine exam. These full length tests will provide you with the same atmosphere as if you are in the true test, and help you prepare both academically and mentally in the review days before the big day.
The app also provides you with explanations and answer keys to solve whatever questions you might have regarding the tests. And it also has an integrated scoring suite to analyse your performance so that you can know your strengths and weaknesses to adjust your study strategies accordingly.
But unfortunately, not all of the tests here are available for free. In fact, most of the more accurate and detailed tests within the app must be bought with real money, instead. Although the app does provide you with free, complimentary tests for you to test the service out. It is undeniable that if you want to use the full power of the app, you must pay for it. However, according to the positive reviews that the app had had from its users, I have good reasons to believe that – although I do not take Indian exams or of Indian nationality – the tests’ quality is acceptable for the price tag that they branded.
If you are a test taker who is planning to take any of the aforementioned tests in the future, this one surely is a great companion to have on your phone or mobile devices to keep you most up to date with the current happenstance. And to also test your knowledge before the test date.
