How did I prepare NMAT?

When you are giving mocks of NMAT, you must pay appropriate attention to all sections. Here are some other preparation tips for NMAT that you must keep in mind:

* Start your NMAT with basics that you have already prepared for CAT. You can also refer to Cetking books that are prepared by many subject experts.

* Beware of using too many reference books. Use the ones that cover maximum syllabus and suit your learning style.
* It can help you to score more by indexing topics in order of priority or weightage they carry in NMAT.
* Grill yourself into the basics until all your fundamentals are very clear as NMAT is specifically designed to test how well students have grasped the topics and how they apply them to a given set of problems.
* Revise, practice using NMAT MOCKS, check solutions from them, seek help where needed and revise and practice again.
* Time management is an important factor in NMAT. So, while solving mocks, keep an eye on your watch too. If solving a question is taking too much time, mark any answer (since there is no negative marking), & move on.

* A customized plan for NMAT preparation can go a long way in scoring good marks. You can design your study plan by keeping these points in mind too. Don’t forget to allot some time for recreation and exercise too. And at least six hours of sleep!!!!

When you go for your exam, ensure that you carry the following with you:
