CEED 2016 Sample Part-A Mock test - 1


There isn't much difference in the pattern of CEED (as well as UCEED) in the last couple of years, this blog already have many mock tests, which would give you an idea of what type of questions might appear in exams as well as give you some clues on how to solve them. In-spite of this, many are leaving comments for mock tests specifically for this year. For this reason, I collected some more sample questions and included here as a warm up practice for you. 

Please make sure that you also cover or attempt other mock tests released in earlier years (and this year) for both CEED as well as UCEED. CEED Part A and UCEED patterns are way similar. So, take both papers and solve them. For those giving CEED this Dec, they can consider attempting UCEED 2015 paper as well as UCEED mock tests that I had dealt in this blog. You can find the links to those mock tests at the end.

As you can seen, I have included a good number of UCEED 2015 questions, just to remind you the similarities in the pattern of both the exams, in fact I guess the level for UCEED Part A is some steps ahead to the level of CEED! So, those preparing for CEED are recommended to practice UCEED previous papers (as well as the mock tests that I dealt in this blog) to strengthen your practice and mathematical as well as design abilities. I knowingly neglected asking questions related to culture and other GA related, hoping that you are aware of them, or you can find them in previous mock tests.
