MAT last week preparation

Candidates appearing for MAT December 2022 CBT exam must have covered most of the topics in the syllabus and must have practiced ample number of sample papers. So what to do in the last week before the MAT 2022 exam? Well, devote time on revising the important topics and concepts. Alongside, one more MAT sample question paper for a final understanding of your preparation level. Those, who have registered for December 2022 MAT CBT session (December 17) must focus mainly on revision in the last week. Given below are six important tips for last week MAT preparation.

MAT Last Week Preparation Tips

  1. Revise and Apply- In the last one week of MAT preparation, each day is crucial. Therefore, plan it well. Check MAT 2022 Syllabus one more time to go through the topics which are important or difficult and revise the basics. Read the short notes you would have made earlier to recall tricks and shortcuts of solving questions.
  2. Mock Test- Practice one MAT mock tests in the last week and analyse your performance. If you are still weak in a few topics, note them down and skip questions on those in the exam. Shiksha offers free MAT sample question paper and online mock test to practice. Take benefit of this facility as it is highly probable that questions from the past may reappear in the upcoming exam.
  3. Short Notes- When preparing for MAT exam, candidates should begin creating short notes. These short notes are very helpful in last week revision. If those notes are in place, all that candidates need to do is, pick up them up and do the revision anytime, anywhere. It also provides clarity on the topics covered.
  4. Do not attempt any new topic- In the last week of MAT preparation candidates need to avoid starting new topics. This is a strict ‘NO’ as it creates unnecessary confusion. Just think, is it possible to grasp the fundamentals of fresh topics in a short time? In addition, remember that you will have to balance new chapters with the revision exercise of already covered topics. Would it not add to the pressure? Devote time on revision and be confident of whatever you've prepared so far.
  5. Time Management- As per MAT exam pattern, there will be 200 questions that are to be solved within 2 hours 30 minutes. Practically, candidates will have 0.75 seconds to read and solve each question. So improve the time management skills that you have developed while practicing MAT mock tests. You do not have to solve all the questions. MAT has negative marking so do not waste your time on questions you are not confident of solving accurately. 
  1. Do not ignore Indian and Global Environment section- Although the score of Indian and Global environment section is not considered while calculating MAT percentile, yet test takers need to focus on this section. Candidates must revise general awareness topics in the last week. This trick will help them sail through the Indian and Global environment section effectively. It will also help then in GD/PI rounds of MBA admission.

The NTSE has two papers: the Mental Aptitude Test (MAT) and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). The best textbooks for studying for the Mental Aptitude Test are typically NCERT texts.

1. By RS Aggarwal, Modern Approach to Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning
2. Mental Ability for NTSE by Odisha Experts
3. Aihant's NTSE Study Guide
