CMAT 2015 : 25 Qs on QT & DI with 100 marks can be differentiator

Published : Tuesday, 21 July, 2015 11:32 AM
 
AICTE will be conducting CMAT (First test) with a 4 day test window on November 2015 
 
You will have to attempt 25 questions on Quantitative Techniques and Data Interpretation with allotted 100 marks. With negative marking, it is a tough nut to crack and compete. 
 
Quantitative Techniques and Data Interpretationsection is not that difficult as it has been portrayed by many. As a candidate you only need to put in your best while preparing for this section and then finding the solution from the options given is not at all complicated. 
 
IMPORTANT NOTE:You need to familiarize yourself with the topics of this section like Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, Mensuration, Number Systems, Modern Math, etc
 
Once you know what all needs to be practiced on a broad scale, start practicing questions based on these areas through mock tests. It will help you in learning and memorizing formulas and calculation tricks.
 
Few intricate things to keep in mind while preparing for CMAT 2016-17 Quantitative Techniques and Data Interpretation section are:
  • Not only you learn formula but also learn when and how to apply it 
  • Not only memorizing the expressions of algebra but also understanding how to interpret questions based on algebraic expressions
  • Not only mugging geometric tables but also enhancing your ability to visualize as you read the questions
  • Not only applying stated formulas and expressions but also your logical reasoning ability, especially in modern math questions
Once your basic understanding of Quantitative Techniques and Data Interpretation is clear, make up your mind for following a fixed strategy in CMAT 2015 that should have the following points:
  • Be aware of your strengths and weaknesses in different topics
  • Don’t be afraid of leaving tricky questions that could derail your speed
  • Understand that it’s not important to know more than the others but your mental strength while attempting the paper is what makes all the difference
  • Believe that the question paper is not a place where you can do R&D; so, simply attempt those question types that you are familiar with
  • Start with the easiest questions that you are very sure of and do not be afraid of leaving the difficult questions un-attempted as the concept of speed-breakers in competitive exams is reality and not myth
  • Go through the questions sequentially and then decide what to attempt first. Make it a quick glance so that you spend required amount of time but not waste time in doing so. 
  • Read the options along with the question. It will help you in deciding the amount of calculation, elimination of choices and in substitution
