CMAT is the gateway to a large number of reputed AICTE approved colleges. CMAT is conducted only once a year since 2016-17. In 2020, CMAT was conducted on 28th January. Most likely, CMAT 2021 will be conducted in the month of January 2021. CMAT is an online exam and the duration of the exam is 180 minutes.
Keeping in mind the difficulty level and peculiar characteristics of the exam, the best way to prepare for the exam is by solving previous year papers. Since CMAT is an online exam and the examiners do not release the actual paper, our team of experts has designed mock tests based on the actual previous year papers. These mock tests replicate the exam pattern, level of difficulty, important topics etc. as seen in the actual CMAT. As far as possible, actual CMAT questions have also been included in these tests, based on memory.
There are four sections in the test. The sections are: Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation, Logical Reasoning, Language Comprehension and General Awareness. There are 25 questions in each section. There is no sectional time limit and candidates can switch between different sections. Each correct answer carries four marks and for each incorrect answer one mark will be deducted.
The next step after taking these tests is to analyse your performance in all the sections. After knowing your weak and strong areas, you must revise the topics you are weak in. You must remember that without the correct knowledge of the various concepts, only practice will not be fruitful. Thus, focus on revising the basics of all topics first and then practicing as many mock tests as possible.
