Revise the basics
If your basics are clear, then no matter how tough or tricky the question is, you will be able to solve the questions.

Hence having the basics brushed up will help you in solving majority of the questions.”
Take mock tests
You can take a couple of mock tests in the remaining few days. “Ideally you can take two mock tests in a week. Once you take a mock test, analyze your performance thoroughly and avoid the mistakes in the next mock test and more importantly on the exam day,” suggests Gautam Puri, Vice Chairman, Career Launcher.
Avoid starting a new topic
Now that you have few days left for the exam, there is no point in starting a new topic. However, in case of CMAT, the chance is bleak if you have already taken the first CMAT 2014 exam of the year which was held in September 2013 or CAT 2013, XAT 2014 etc. In case CMAT February 2014 is your first attempt in the MBA entrance exam, then you can make the choice of the topics you are absolutely confident about and leave the rest of the topics which you are not comfortable in.
Don’t leave the important areas in a section
Though you are advised not to start any new topics a week before the exam, but you must not leave out the main areas and topics which are of utmost importance and bear high weightage in the exam. Missing out on the important topics will lead to losing marks either through negative marking or due to lack of attempt.
The following paragraphs will give you the section wise important topics.

The Reading Comprehension and English Usage areas comprise the Language Comprehension section.

Krishna Deshmukh, topper of CMAT September 2013 with a score of 326 says, “The CMAT questions are much easier than that of CAT. Hence preparing for the Quant, DI and Reasoning section for CAT served the purpose for CMAT preparation as well.” He also adds, “My advice for the CMAT takers would be to avoid silly mistakes. Go through the questions first and after solving the questions, revise thoroughly.”

1st of all, the percentile system is different that percentage system. Percentile system depends on the aspirant who scored highest marks, and keeping his percentile as base every other aspirant receives his percentile. Hence cut off of every college differs every year. depending upon total number of aspirants, highest scorer, number of seats, difficulty level.
If we take previous year records scores the cutoff has been nearly 176-208 for MS University.
So a score in greater than this will help you to have more chance of college conversion. also you have General EWS category so that will further help you.
