Preparation Strategy
NMAT exam’s main objective to test speed and accuracy. Candidates need to attempt each question in less than 80 seconds. Selection is crucial here.
Aspirants should focus on core quant topics and theory. Try and finish all the topics in the next two months. Thereafter, do not touch new topics or comfortable areas. The chief strategy should be to attempt familiar questions and leave nonfamiliar/noncomfortable questions. Candidates should be able to decide this within 10 seconds.
Speed will be also very critical in NMAT exam. Apart question learning to select a question, candidates should also to reject a question in less than 10 seconds.
Expect some calculationheavy problems. These questions are meant to be left alone. Give it a try only if are not very close.
So focus on CAT quant syllabus. Here are some core topics that you can expect:
Candidates can safely ignore Trigonometry & Statistics. This topic has a maximum of one to two questions, which are generally easy. Questions related to Data Sufficiency has not been observed so far.
Logical reasoning is comparatively easier than Quant and Data Interpretation in NMAT exam. We can expect a similar pattern in NMAT exam 2016. Questions in LR can range from Decision Making to Verbal Logic.
Verbal ability section usually consists of grammar, reading comprehension. There’s no different strategy for VA section. Candidates need to focus on an overall strategy for MBA exams while preparing for verbal sections, because all the exams have similar syllabus.
Finally, practicing past years' NMAT question papers as well as Mock Tests of various players are perhaps the best source for preparation. It provides opportunity to plug the loopholes in the preparation of NMAT entrance exam and one should give maximum importance to these question papers.
