Accountancy Sample Papers for Class 11:

Accountancy is a subject most Commerce stream students love to study, but Accountancy exams are what these same students dread too. Have you ever tried to count the most basic calculations (say, subtracting 17 from 24) on your fingertips because your ‘balance c/d’ would not match with the original solution? Have you ever filled long pages of your notebook with perfectly drawn Trading and Profit/ Loss Accounts in a frantic attempt to finish the question in time, only to realize that your Balance Sheet’s Assets’ and Liabilities’ columns refuse to match? Why do you even need so many different Reserves for accumulating the same money? Why can’t you depreciate all assets only straight-line? You get the gist. A subject that looks like an gigantic asteroid from outer space, falling on our earth that is decorated  with only the basic foundations of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Hindi, English, Math and Social Science yet (courtesy: 10th Standard); is bound to bring in some chaos. But remember, a ship can only drown if its captain cannot foresee the winds (or judge an iceberg). In simpler words, you can sail through commendably well if only you put in that extra effort of calling your rescue team: SAMPLE PAPERS! In this article, find out more about how to use accountancy sample papers for class 11.

Why Should You Use Accountancy Sample Papers for Class 11?

The strategy of using accountancy sample papers for class 11 for practicing those dreaded lengthy Accountancy questions and getting them right, is a tactic that every topper with straight As has sworn by, and rightly so.

Let us first break down the core questions of the exam paper for a simpler and clearer understanding. The Accountancy syllabus of class 11 broadly has the following categories of questions:

  1. Factual Questions:

    These comprise of the basic terminologies, definitions, jargons and information that is basic to the subject concerned and requires to be remembered at all times, throughout the course of Accountancy.

  2. Conceptual Questions:

    These questions dig for a deeper understanding of the content for the purpose of comparison and interpretation of various theories and principles of accounting.

  3. Application Based Questions:

    These refer to situational questions that call for putting the theoretical knowledge accumulated to practical use to solve abstract problems.

  4. H.O.T.S Questions:

    Most accountancy students by now know these bundles of mystery that promise to leave us with the constant itch to crack them, Higher Order Thinking Skills Questions. These questions require careful analysis, classification of facts, identification of the hidden twist questions, and proper organisation of existent knowledge, to be able to solve them.

  5. Multi-disciplinary Questions:

    These questions require evaluation of the given data and often, the solution proposed too, for the purpose of weighing a decision or outcome, complemented with values.

For anybody to excel in this subject, the above mentioned categories must be understood in detail to assess and identify the types of questions asked in any examination. This only way to do this is practice, practice and more practice! But there is only a limited number that the CBSE textbooks can offer. Enter: Sample Papers.

How to Use Accountancy Sample Papers for Class 11?

Here is how you sneak this step in into your weekly preparations routine. Solve a minimum of three sample papers each week. You may alter between conceptual studies and sample papers simultaneously or keep weekdays for general preparations and a two-days weekend to test your skills using these sample papers. Here is how you may utilize them to your maximum benefit:

  1. Time Yourself:

    In the initial stages of solving sample papers, it is important to time yourself to adapt your mind to this limitation that may hinder you in the final exams if not worked upon well.

  2. Assess Your Paper:

    Post completion, assess your paper and grade yourselves accordingly. Most Sample Papers available online or in books have the answer keys attached for evaluation.

  3. Keep An Hour Long Gap:

    It is important to keep some gap between solving and evaluating the paper. This is because, if the paper attempted did not go well, looking at the correct answers might lead you to attaching yourself to it with a bias and hence, looking at it objectively to point out mistakes may seem more difficult.

  4. Screen For Repetitive Questions:

    Once you are through with solving around 15 to 20 sample papers, chances are that you mat stumble across the same or similar kind of questions often. Solving these repeatedly would only lead to wastage of time. Therefore, for such an instance, read the question and revise the concepts and steps mentally and move on to the next.

  5. Solve in a Peaceful Environment:

    It is extremely essential for you to solve these papers in a place that is void of any disturbances or distractions. Stay away from the television, kitchen or any other area where others might come and go often. Pick a quite spot and solve the paper calmly. Any hindrance in the same can break the thinking process and hence affect performance.

  6. Ask For Help:

    In case of doubts arising while solving your sample papers, mark them and remember to ask them to your tutors at the earliest possible. This must be done for the sake of conceptual clarity and to avoid making similar mistakes in other related questions.

  7. H.O.T.S:

    Do not take these questions for granted as practicing these will give you the most desirable results. In the last few days prior to the examinations, only focus on solving these to make sure you untangle all the remaining occasional knots in you concepts and subject understanding.
