HPU MAT is an offline exam which is conducted every year for the admission to MBA. The exam will have a total of 200 questions consisting of 4 sections: english, critical reasoning, numerical ability and data interpretation and business awareness. Each section will further be having 50 questions.
1mark will be given for the correct answer and there will be no negative marking. As negative marking affects the marks the most and since there is no negative marking, the difficulty level of the paper is medium to high.
Everything is easy when you have the knowledge for it. So my advice to you is keep revising the syllabus and try to solve maximum problems and you will definitely crack the paper.
Hope this was helpful. Thank you
Not to worry about payment. It happens many time after filling up form payment was not made. Payment site may be down for specific period, but in short time it will be repaired by the site and then again by logging in your registration id. You will be able to pay exam fees.
