The difficulty level of the CMAT questions is comparable to that of the NMAT and SNAP questions. The length of the exam, not the difficulty level of the questions, is what makes CMAT simple.
You have 3 hours to solve 100 questions, 25 of which are General Awareness questions that should take no more than 5 to 10 minutes to answer because you don’t have to waste time on each one either you know or you don’t know the answer. So you’ve got 75 questions to answer and 170 minutes to do it in. That’s more than two minutes for each question, which is a lot of time.
If you finish the English section in 20 minutes, you’ll have two and a half hours to complete the Quantitative Aptitude and Reasoning section. That works up to 150 minutes for only 50 questions or 3 minutes per question.
CAT questions aren’t difficult; they’re just time-consuming, unlike CMAT questions. Each problem has a time limit of 100 seconds.
CMAT is perhaps the simplest MBA admission exam because you can quickly figure out the solutions to most, if not all of the Quant and Reasoning questions, and you have plenty of time to do it.
