With just a month to go for the NMAT 2019 exam, dedicate the first week in going through all the important topics and concepts.
Here are a few tips you need to keep in mind while preparing for each section:
- Starting today, make sure you write at least 15 sectional mocks before your actual exam
- Go through the NMAT word list by heart
- Attempt individual RC passages with a timer (3 to 5 minutes at max)
- Time yourself when you write the sectional mocks
- Analyse the mocks you are writing for your strong and week areas.
- Ensure you write at least 20 sectional mocks before your final exam
- Make a list of important formulae and revise them daily
- Solve individual DI questions with a timer
- Work on mental calculations and estimation.
- Analyse the mocks you are writing for your strong and week areas
- Try to write at least 20 sectional mocks before your final exam
- Do not leave any topic. NMAT is the only exam that asks single statement reasoning questions
- Deduce strategies for each of the topic under this question
- Work on making educated guesses in case you are running short of time
- Analyse the mocks you write thoroughly.
- Write at least 8 to 10 full length mocks in the last one month before your exam
- Go with a pre-decided plan about the order in which you want to attempt the sections
- It is best to get done with your strongest section initially, since it helps you keep your morale high
- 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
- Keep an eye on the timer but do not get perturbed seeing “time left”
- 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
- Practice as much as you can
- Revising all important formulae and shortcuts
- Go through the official NMAT mocks available on their website
- Do not leave any question unanswered, since there is no negative marking.
All the best!
