The entrance exams always make students under pressure at the last moment. Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) will be conducted this year in February. If we put the right efforts in the right direction, cracking the entrance would be easy. The basics of CMAT questions are the same as always which comprises 100 MCQs from Quantitative Techniques and Data Interpretation, Logical Reasoning, Language Comprehension, and General Awareness. The syllabus of all the topics should be known in depth along with this preparation strategy is always kept in the mind.

The best strategy method while preparing for CMAT are as follows:

Knowing strong and weak areas: In CMAT the difficulty level is not much, so it can be expected that students will get less problem in solving most of the questions, but then too if you’re taking a national management test like CMAT you can expect some competition, so to overcome this scenario you should focus more your weak skills and try to enhance even more your weak areas. By this time you must have known what your strong points are and what your weak points are, so design your strategy as per it.

Jog up through the formulas and key points: While CMAT begins just a few days from now, so this is the time to start revising the formulas and key points in the quant and DI section and try to memorize them for the D-Day. This will help you to be more comfortable with the Quant and DI section.

Current Affairs: CMAT also asks questions on GK, which are mostly on the current affairs on topics like India/World economy, political scenarios, and other important changes taking place in the last 6 months. You can tackle this section by reading online articles, newspapers, etc, Read and try to remember the last 6 months’ important events.

Mock Test and Online Material: After brushing up your basics on quant, reasoning, and language, you should start practicing more and more on each topic separately and try to solve at least 1 mock test paper per day. The key is to practice more so you get more chances to crack CMAT.

There are plenty of study material available online, try to gulp as much as you can. You can also consider study material offline by some coaching institutes

Form a Strategy: A Strategy in approaching the CMAT exam is very important, as important as the syllabus preparing part, if you don’t form any strategies you will get indulge in wasting time on unnecessary issues and resulting in a bad overall score and that will not be good. Now the question arises how to form and what to form in a strategy, so a perfect answer would be if you had attempted enough mock tests and had prepared on almost every topic, you will get to know the structure of strategy.
