 Published :Friday, 20 February, 2015 12:00 AM
 
Day one of CMAT 2015 second Test is over on 19th February, 2015 so it can be worthwhile to understand the analysis of trend that might be helpful to aspirants who are appearing in other days of exam. (19th to 22nd February, 2015)
 
The overall structure of the paper was as follows:
 
S. No. 
  Type of Questions 
No. of questions   Maximum Marks
1 Quantitative Techniques and Data Interpretation 25 100
2   Logical reasoning 25 100
3   Language comprehension 25 100
4 General Awareness 25 100
Total   100 400
 
Important
  • Expected Duration of the CMAT: 3 hours (180 minutes).
  • Expected Time per section in CMAT: 45 minutes.
  • Marking Scheme for CMAT: 4 marks per correct answer.
  • Incorrect answers will carry a penalty of 1 mark.
 Quantitative Techniquesand Data Interpretation
 
  • There were approx. 25 questions of QA and DI. The difficulty level was high and the questions were designed to test the grasp of fundamentals.
  • There were questions from regular topics like Number System, Algebra, Geometry, Modern Math and Geometry. Questions in Data Interpretation area were also not simple and involved convoluted calculations. All the questions in DI came in sets of three.

Language Comprehension and Logical Reasoning
 
  • The questions in this section were of moderate to difficulty level. The trick here was to aim for high accuracy by correctly identifying the questions that one was confident of solving correctly. RC’s were manageable, not being inordinately lengthy or abstract. At most only one of the three given passages was tough.
 

General Awareness

25 questions on General Awareness with allotted 100 marks. With negative marking, it is a tough nut to crack and compete.

General Awareness section is always a stumbling step that or a road block for many students across competitive examinations. Similarly, for the aspirants of CMAT 2015, the section of general awareness which deals with current affairs of domestic and international events could prove to be a speed breaker in their smooth journey towards cracking the exam.
 
 
  Wishes you all the best on CMAT Second Test, 2015!!
