MBA aspirants should note that General Awareness Section will be important in coming CMAT Exam being conducted from 28th January 2017.
 
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 2017, 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. 
 
The general awareness section in CMAT 2017 will have 25 questions to check the intelligence of the aspirants. This section will comprise of 100 marks. For those who have prepared for it throughout their preparation routine, it will be a potential high scoring section. 
 
However, students who have not been actively involved in the general awareness preparation do not need to lose hope; you may follow the following tips to strengthen your general awareness level:
  • Attempt CMAT mock tests to familiarize yourself with the level of difficulty 
  • Identify your strengths and weaknesses in this section by monitoring and analyzing your test attempt after attempt
  • One vital thing to keep in mind is that taking the mock CMAT is not that essential but to analyze your performance
  • While comparing the results, prepare a separate note to list all the new general awareness points
  • The latest happening around the world should not be taken lightly and you need to concentrate on every event of politics, sports, economy, books, awards, titles, etc.
  • To know the latest happenings, read English newspapers daily

You may divide the general awareness section into two parts – 
 
Current affairs, for which you need to be aware of the major happenings of the last six months
 
Static general knowledge for which the most important thing is to read up on everything and satisfy your thirst for knowledge
  • You also may make a list of commonly asked things in static GK after reading mock papers such as awards, books, ministers, capitals and governors of Indian states and Indian history etc.
  • Now that the CMAT 2017 is so near, expose yourself to many facts and figures of general awareness
  • You can give at least two hours daily to prepare for this section as neglecting this section could affect your overall performance and ranking
