How to Prepare for the CMAT 2022 Examination?
Phase 1: Cover the Syllabus
Covering the syllabus for any examination isn’t as straightforward as it sounds. Why? It’s because there are several distractions and wrong practices that keep you away from covering all the topics that are part of your CMAT course.
Mistakes like overspending time on a particular topic, leaving too much for the fag end of your preparation strategy are a few classical examples. However, we, at Endeavor Careers, ensure that this doesn’t happen to our candidates.
Our curated study material helps you in your CMAT preparation online. Our trainers solve your doubts instantly to remove any roadblocks in your learning journey. Therefore, it’s imperative to follow a structured learning approach to ensure you cover the entire CMAT 2022 curriculum.
Phase 2: Restrict Your Study Material and References
Yes, you read that right! You need to proactively restrict the study material you leverage in your CMAT preparation. A lot of books hamper your preparation strategy, just as too many cooks spoil the broth.
How can you do that? Here are a few pointers that can help:
- Get rid of similar (or almost similar) books/notes
- Avoid asking your friends and colleagues for their reference books
- Don’t include any new book mid-way through your CMAT preparation journey
Following these simple steps can help you curate the study material. It’s a vital aspect of your CMAT preparation because with so many distractions already out there, you don’t want your books to become one.
Phase 3: Appear for Mock Tests
Join a CMAT test series 2022 whenever you finish the entire exam syllabus. Test series have an additional role to play apart from acclimatizing you with the test’s environment. You comprehend a lot about time management, stress management, and more by appearing in a mock test series.
Endeavor’s curated mock test series offers the best CMAT mocks that focus on quality more than quantity. Our mantra for conducting mocks is simple – each mock should take you a step closer to glory. We don’t want our students to line up for mocks one after the other without even analyzing how they’re performing.
It’s critical for students to appear for the test series with utmost sincerity. Moreover, your mannerisms, punctuality, and zeal to score good marks should remain consistent, be it a mock test or the real one.
Phase 4: Revise and Revisit
Revisions become easier and more efficient when you’ve prepared quality notes. A notebook that contains all the formulas, a copy that has all the important questions, and a few loose pages that remind you about the topics you need to give that extra minute.
Don’t just run through the notes while revising. Pick a topic, recall everything that you remember, be it a theorem or a formula, and then take a glance at the book. It’s imperative to “question before revision” to ensure that all the bells ring at the right time when you see any topic that’s part of the CMAT course.
In case you weren’t able to cover a few topics during your preparation journey, bid them adieu because you shouldn’t touch anything new in the revision phase. Lastly, try to maintain a calm head and relax before the exam day.
