CMAT preparation strategy 2024 - To prepare for CMAT exam you need not work too hard if you have already appeared for CAT, XAT, SNAP, etc. The syllabus of CMAT is similar to these MBA entrance exams so you would have already covered the main topics. All you need to do is practice CMAT sample papers and mock tests. You also need to prepare for the Innovation and Entreprenuership section which is unique to CMAT.

If you are planning to appear in CMAT 2024, make sure to start practicing sample papers and CMAT mock tests now. If the CMAT 2024 will be held in April 2024, then you will get 2 months for practice if you start now.  We have provided here key CMAT exam preparation tips and study material that will help you score 99 percentile. Read further below for CMAT preparation 2024. 

Q:   What is the latest CMAT exam pattern?

A:
The latest CMAT exam pattern as prescribed by the National Testing Agency NTA is as follows: The question paper carries 100 question. The format of questions is multiple choice type where for each question, four options are given to choose the correct answer from. The 100 questions are divided equally between five sections, Quantitative Techniques and Data Interpretation, Language Comprehension, Logical Reasoning, General Awareness and Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Each of the five sections carry 20 questions. Earlier, there were only four sections in CMAT and each section has 25 questions. In 2021, Innovation and Entrepreneurship was added as the fifth section. The time limit for CMAT is 180 minutes without sectional time limit or break. As per the latest marking scheme, for every correct option 4 marks are awarded and for every incorrect option, one mark is deducted. There is no negative marking for unanswered questions.
 

Q:   Which is the lengthiest section in CMAT?

A:
Since the Language Comprehension section of CMAT includes reading comprehension passages, it can be considered a lengthy section. However, there is a possibility of any other section to be lengthier. For example, Logical Reasoning questions or Data Interpretation questions can also be lengthy, due to multiple levels of calculations. The weightage of each section is same in CMAT I. e. 20 questions and 80 marks, so it doesn't really matter which section is lengthy as candidates have to meet sectional cut offs to be able to get a good overall score. It is not mandatory to solve all 100 questions in CMAT so candidates have the choice of dropping lengthy questions and solving easier questions. So, the best option is to skip the lengthy questions and solve other questions correctly. Doing so will ensure that the candidate doesn't fall short of time as well as good questions to solve.
 

Q:   Is CMAT easier than CAT?

A:
Yes, CMAT is much easier that CAT exam. Despite the fact that CMAT and CAT syllabus are same and that CMAT has two more sections than CAT the former is much easier than the latter. The CAT exam is usually of moderate to high difficulty level, whereas the CMAT exam is of easy to moderate difficulty level. There are key differences between CMAT and CAT which make the former easier. There is no sectional time limit in CMAT so candidates do not face the pressure of completing a given section within certain time limit. In CAT there are 4-5 Reading Comprehension passages which are 500-600 words, and 12-14 question. In CMAT there is usually, only one Reading Comprehension passage, having 4 questions. The Quantitative Aptitude questions of CMAT are also easier than CAT and so are Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation questions. It is easier to score high percentile in CMAT as the number of applicants is more than one Lacs less in CAT.

How to Prepare for CMAT 2024?

For CMAT preparation 2024, a sound plan is of utmost necessity. If you join a coaching institute to prepare for CMAT exam, you will be taken care of well.

Q:   How can I prepare for CMAT?

A:
To prepare for CMAT exam you need to do two things. Cover the exam syllabus and practice mock tests. After you decide to appear for CMAT the first thing you should do is check the CMAT syllabus. Make a list of topics that you are familiar with and topics that you have never studied before. Start with topics that you are unfamiliar with as those topics will take time. Move to easier topics after that. Do practice sample questions after completing each topic to know how to apply concepts to a problem. Once you have completed the CMAT syllabus, move to the next phase of preparation, I. e. practicing mock tests and sample questions. Dedicate about 40-45 days in practicing CMAT mock tests, to gain not only speed and accuracy but also control on the topics.

Q:   Can I prepare for CMAT in 6 months?

A:

Yes, 6 months are a decent time duration to prepare for CMAT exam, if one does it with dedication and discipline. Candidates who have appeared for CMAT or any other MBA entrance exam before, will find 6 months more than enough to prepare for the exam. Those, who are appearing in CMAT for the first time, can also prepare in 6 months but they will have to give extra time to it. If you plan a CMAT preparation in six months, make a three stage plan. In the first stage, which will be of 3 months, complete the CMAT syllabus, in the second phase, which will be of 2 months, practice sample papers and mock tests. In the third stage, which will be of 1 months, do revision of important topics and gain control over all that you have studied before.

CMAT Exam Preparation Plan 2024

Now comes the most important part i.e. making a preparation strategy for CMAT 2024. Your exam strategy should be divided into three phases:

CMAT preparation strategy

CMAT preparation strategy

First phase: Completing the CMAT Syllabus 2024

While studying for CMAT topics, you need to understand their uniqueness and prepare accordingly. For example, Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation is a concept driven section, so while preparing for it, your focus should be understanding and memorising the concepts and theorems thoroughly. On the other hand, the Logical Reasoning section is practice based, hence the requirement will be practicing a good number of sample questions and mock tests to master all types of logic and reasoning.

Some sections of CMAT Verbal Ability (Grammar and Verbal Reasoning) are concept driven, while some are practice based (reading comprehensions). General Awareness is memory based so memorise GK topics and events.

Our Advice:

  • Start with the CMAT section that you find the toughest and then move to easier ones.
  • Do not start a new topic without completing the previous one.
  • Do not study more than one topic at the same time, you might end up confused at the end of the day.
  • General Awareness is the easiest section to prepare, so prepare for it at the end of this phase.

Second phase: Practicing Sample Papers and CMAT Mock Tests

Our advice:

  • Don’t start solving sample questions before completing the CMAT syllabus.
  • If you have prepared for or appeared in CAT, XAT, IIFT, SNAP, GMAT, etc. then you can prepare by only practicing CMAT mock tests.
  • After appearing for each CMAT mock test, analyse your performance and take the next step accordingly.
  • Behind practicing mock tests, your aim should be to increase speed and improve accuracy.
  • It will help you understand the test structure so that you can prepare topics accordingly.
  • Try to solve a variety of questions. This will give you an idea of all kinds of questions – tough, easy, tricky and lengthy.

Third phase: Topic-Wise Revision of Important CMAT Topics

Keep aside a fortnight for revision of the CMAT syllabus. Devote more time on revision of topics that are your weak points or those which have high weightage in the exam, but do not ignore your strong points. Don’t be overconfident. Revise all the CMAT concepts, theorem, formulae, short cuts and tricks of solving questions with 100 per cent accuracy.

Our advice:

  • Don’t start a new chapter in the last two days before the CMAT 2024 exam
  • Finish revision a day prior to the exam and let your mind relax overnight
  • Do not study or revise anything in the morning of the exam
