  2. Go through the NMAT word list by heart
  3. Attempt individual RC passages with a timer (3 to 5 minutes at max)
  4. Time yourself when you write the sectional mocks
  5. Analyse the mocks you are writing for your strong and week areas.

Quantitative Skills

  1. Ensure you write at least 20 sectional mocks before your final exam
  2. Make a list of important formulae and revise them daily

  3. Deduce strategies for each of the topic under this question
  4. Work on making educated guesses in case you are running short of time
  5. Analyse the mocks you write thoroughly.

  1. Write at least 8 to 10 full length mocks in the last one month before your exam
  2. Go with a pre-decided plan about the order in which you want to attempt the sections
  3. It is best to get done with your strongest section initially, since it helps you keep your morale high
  4. Move on to the next question as soon as you see yourself spending more than a minute on a question. NMAT 2019 is a speed-based test
  5. Keep an eye on the timer but do not get perturbed seeing “time left”
  6. At the end of each section, make sure you keep at least two minutes to make educated guesses for the questions you could not solve
  7. Practice as much as you can
  8. Revising all important formulae and shortcuts
  9. Go through the official NMAT mocks available on their website
  10. Do not leave any question unanswered, since there is no negative marking.
