Tips to prepare for NMAT

Effective preparation strategy: To score well in the NMAT exam, candidates should plan accordingly. They should target each topic of the syllabus and practise previous years’ NMAT question papers separately and prioritise among the sections depending on their own strengths and weaknesses.

Improve speed and accuracy: Another way of scoring well in the exam is by reducing time to solve the questions. This is because, the faster the aspirants solve the questions, the more time they will be able to save to solve tricky questions. Speed can be improved by practising previous year’s NMAT question papers as well as online mock tests.

Take NMAT mock tests: GMAC provides an online mock test facility for candidates appearing for the NMAT exam. Candidates can practice the NMAT mock test series to get a real-time experience of the exam. The online mock test also provides an overall analysis of the preparation level of the candidate, which is important for knowing about focus areas that candidates need to work on to score well in the exam. Shiksha has created a free NMAT mock test for candidates to practice.

Prepare for the test day: Exam preparation is not just about how to score well but also, how to attempt the exam. Sometimes, candidates are not able to perform well in the exam even after enough preparation because of anxiety. Therefore, they should be prepared for the exam day by doing yoga and mind-calming activities. They must also eat healthy to avoid getting sick on exam day.
