The 5 commandments for NMAT which if followed without fail would guarantee success and a good score. Read on to know more about the same.
Know your time: be cognizant of the time you have for the exam and structure your preparation accordingly. Make the most of your retakes and give a decent attempt.
Understand the NMAT by GMAC structure: the exam carries no negative marking. So you can clearly maximize your attempt by catering to a large number of questions. Choose your questions wisely, categorize them as easy, medium and tough. The initial easy and medium ones should be attempted by you in the relevant time-frame and then approach the difficult ones at the end.
Compartment your sections: Each section has its own time-limit. So choose in the order giving priority to your strengths. For some, while attempting the quant section is a booster in terms of time and confidence, for others the verbal or logic section might ring a bell and keep them in form throughout the exam session.
Time: this is a critical resource and has to be worked on very carefully. One must clearly aim at striking the right chord between time and maximizing your attempt as this would help determine a well-rounded attempt aimed at attempting more number of questions, gaining speed and most importantly having buffer to revise your attempts in the section.
Question priority: NMAT by GMAC has always been about speed and maximizing your attempts. So where one cannot spend beyond 2 minutes per question, it is best to seam through at first to classify the order of questions to be attempted in priority. However, your speed in seaming through and identifying questions can pace up only with more practice.
Practice makes one perfect: Keep sticking to practicing mock papers and previous year papers to guage your performance and keep getting better at your preparation. More than one’s practice of studying even consistently, this is a straightforward indicator of how to improve one’s quality of attempt. Moreover, it is only quality that determines success and not quantity.
Last but not the least, work on the above-mentioned steps and maximize your score to achieve the best results! The last date for applying for NMAT 2016 retakes is December 15, 2016.
