All the four sections will have 25 questions each. The total time allotted for the test is 180 minutes that is three hours. There is no sectional barrier or time boundation, so one can freely scroll in between the sections and attempt which ever section they want to. Candidates should manage their time. They should be aware about how much time they are investing in a particular section, so that they don’t hamper other sections.
The first section of the CMAT is Quantitative Technique and Data Interpretation.

The topics covered in the section ranges from Numbers to Geometry and Tables to pie charts.
The second section is the Logical Reasoning. This section mainly covers topics such as Assertion and Reasoning, Judgements and Inferences, True and False etc. One can practice these types of question by referring to various books and solving the mock tests. This section can be a little time consuming, but then one has to try to solve as many questions correctly as possible.
The third section is the Language Comprehension. This section covers all the language and grammar related questions. From fill in the blanks, to correct the sentences and grammar related questions. Reading Comprehensions are also a part of this section.

The last section of the test is the General Awareness section. Inorder to perform well in this section, one must be well aware of the current affairs and should have general basic knowledge of History, geography, science, economics and politics.
