Careers360- Congratulations on achieving such an outstanding percentile in MAH MBA CET! Could you please share your preparation strategy and techniques that helped you secure this remarkable result?

Jayant- As I have appeared for CAT, and the preparation I did for CAT proved to be extremely beneficial for my MAH MBA CET exam. Since I had already completed the entire syllabus while preparing for CAT, my focus for MAH MBA CET was mainly on giving mocks, analyzing them, and improving my weak areas.

Careers360- Tell us about your academic background. What were your grades, and your MAH CET percentile? What motivated you to pursue MBA?

Jayant- I have done my bachelor’s in Information Technology from Indraprastha University, New Delhi in 2020 and I am currently working as a Data engineering analyst at Accenture. I secured 99.9854 percentile in MAH MBA CET. After gaining experience in the technical domain, I felt a strong desire to expand my knowledge and understanding of the managerial side of the business. I wanted to broaden my horizons and develop a well-rounded skill set that would enable me to contribute effectively in both technical and managerial roles.

Careers360- How and when did you start, and for how much time you used to study in a day? Can you share your preparation timetable, study plan, and strategies

Jayant- After the XAT exam, I started going through the MBA CET pattern, and started giving the mocks. Yes, this was my first attempt. I have appeared for all the management exams. As I was preparing along with my job, I have to manage both. I gave mocks on alternate days and after that, I analyze that and work on the weak topics.

For the MAH CET 2023 exam, my main strategy was to manage my time wisely and keep a good pace. Since there were 200 questions to answer in just 150 minutes, I knew I couldn't spend too much time on any single question. To prepare for this, I practiced a lot with mock tests, which helped me improve my speed for the actual exam.

To improve my quantitative skills, I studied from Arun Sharma's book. I also used the study material from my coaching institute and took section-wise tests provided by MissionCAT. The tests from MissionCAT were really helpful in tracking my progress and finding areas where I needed to get better. For verbal ability, reading comprehension, and logical reasoning, I used the study material given by my coaching institute, which was made specifically for the exam.

Careers360- Did you join any coaching classes? What other resources did you find most helpful during your preparation?

I also used the study material from my coaching institute and took section-wise tests provided by Mission CAT.
