CMAT 2021 - Strategies to Crack the Test
While attempting the question paper, some of the basic guidelines that candidates should follow are given below.
Carefully Read Questions
Since there is no sectional time duration in CMAT 2021 question paper, hence candidates are advised to read the questions carefully. Mark the questions that you think are attemptable. Divide the number of questions in such a way that questions are attempted accurately. Moreover, there is no sectional limit, hence candidates can opt for any section which they are comfortable in dealing with. Take the leverage and pick the section accordingly.
Do Not Waste Time
Even though there is no sectional timing, candidates should not waste more than 2 minutes on any particular question. On reading any question, your brain signals whether you know the answer. If not, then simply move on to the next question without wasting any further time. It is advisable to solve questions on the basis of foresightedness i.e. in starting to attempt the question which you can answer. If the time is remaining then give a shot to the unattempted or time taking questions that need more concentration.
Know the Art of Leaving
CMAT is considered to be a tough exam in terms of its marking scheme. One mark is deducted for every incorrect answer. Hence, candidates must be aware of this thing in advance and leave the questions which are out of reach.
Make sure to have enough time to revise. Before submitting the CMAT 2021 question paper candidates must re-check the answers marked. Along with the marked answers, answers which are left unanswered should be reviewed as it may happen that candidates might have left it while answering in haste.
