8 Pitfalls to Avoid in CMAT 2022

The CMAT exam is regarded as one of the more straightforward MBA entry exams. It is held after the CAT, XAT, IIFT, and NMAT, making it even more bearable because the candidates have already taken other aptitude tests. However, if one does not pay close enough attention to the CMAT, they may find themselves in an unfavourable circumstance during in the exam.

  1. Not knowing how many efforts are ideal. It’s like trying to build a house without a blueprint. You should have a good sense of how many efforts you want to make.

  2. Being overly optimistic in terms of the number of attempts. The rule for CMAT is simple: WORSHIP ACCURACY. Any student who attempts more than 70 questions is either a potential top performer or a complete failure. As a result, don’t try to answer all of the questions.

  3. Do not be concerned about the GK segment and do not attempt to over-prepare. It’s the most unpredictable component, and your score will reflect your reading habits.

  4. Taking the CMAT exam without sufficient mock test preparation. You must take at least 10 CMAT practice tests with varied levels of difficulty. This will prepare you for every eventuality that may arise throughout the exam.

  5. Setting a predetermined absolute target score (for example, 200+). The difficulty level of the CMAT question paper will determine the absolute scores. Your ranking, not your score, is what matters. As a result, after going over the paper once, set a target score.

  6. On the day of CMAT 2022, don’t study too hard. Get at least seven to eight hours of sleep.

  7. Don’t be discouraged by a shaky start. The CMAT is a three-hour long exam with no sectional time limits or cut-off scores. So, even if you get off to a shaky start, if you stay calm, you’ll be OK.

  8. When it comes to the Language Comprehension part, especially the critical reasoning questions, don’t go overboard. For most pupils, fifteen decent attempts in this portion would suffice.
