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.

While revising GK/Current Awareness, candidates need to go through top news stories regularly. Apart from that, focus on General Awareness Questions and static topics. Except for the section on General Awareness, all the other sections of the UPMCAT exam get well covered with a good preparation for MAT/CAT. However, it would be advisable for a student to work on his/her speed mathematics as some of the questions under Data Interpretation tend to be calculation intensive. For preparation on General Awareness, in addition to reading newspapers regularly, it would be advisable for a student to prepare from the following sources: Also, in the various issues of MBA Education & Careers magazine, focus on features like Business GK, Current Issues & Events, and Current Event Chronicle (this feature captures important tid-bits). In addition to the above, please run through the GK Model Papers feature titled, improve your GK. Go through the GA Note (Study Material) booklet for stock GK (like history and geography). Also use the GAT papers, each with 50 questions. Manorama & CSR Year Book - it helps in preparation for stock type questions.

In Manorama Year Book and CSR, please focus on the following chapters. Who is who, What is what, Science, scan Human body, Computers, Landmarks of history, The Universe etc.

While preparing for this section, a student should focus on issues related to National & International Events, World Bodies, and Foreign Trade related information. Finally, practicing past years' 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 the entrance exam and one should give maximum importance to these question papers.
