what are the best options for preparation of cmat gk section?

Pranav Mishra 18th Jan, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

GK in CMAT is a scoring subject which can be used to increase your percentile, I am also an example of the one who has increased the percentile of CMAT by scoring good in GK, So take GK section seriously, Now for GK section in CMAT questions comes from both static GK and current affairs, Static GK is a vast topic so I will not tell you give more time cover all the topics of it, However you can spent the time in current affairs as that will be generally of last 1 year and it will not difficult to cover it, So, I advise you to cover current affairs of 1 year with some static GK which you can cover in time. Work hard.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.

hello aspirant..

Great Lakes PGPM Admission: Difference between Cycle-1 & Cycle-2 Application
The Cycle-1 and Cycle-2 of application process is distinguished based on the scores with which you are applying. If a candidate has last year exam score, for example for admission 2020, if you have scores of CAT 2018, XAT 2019, CMAT 2019 and GMAT (taken after 1st Jan 2017), you must apply in cycle-1.

But, if you have appeared in CAT 2019, XAT 2020 and GMAT (taken after 1st Dec. 2019), you need to apply in Cycle 2.

While in terms of the selection process, there is no preference given to applicants in any cycle and there is similar probability of getting selected, the applicants submitting application in Cycle 1 get some extra time to plan their finances, personal commitments and exit from companies better as they get an admission offer by end of December.

Entrance Exam 1 Year PGPM Expected cut off 2 Years PGDM Expected Cut off
CAT 2018/2019* 80 80
