CMAT

FAQs

  1. I have learnt that the test will not disqualify anybody, but will just give a rank to all test takers. The colleges, based on their individual merit list can decide if candidate of a certain rank is eligible for admission. Is the CMAT score only to rank candidates?

  2. Yes, CMAT has been designed to rank all the candidates who appear in the test based on their aptitude towards the management education in the order of their merit. The objective of the test is not to eliminate the candidates from the process of seeking admission in the AICTE approved management programmes, rather to facilitate the institutions to select the suitable candidates as per their merit.

  3. Will T.I.M.E. give me adequate practice in a Computer-Based Test format?

  4. T.I.M.E. has more than ten years' experience in training students for various online as well computer-based tests such as GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and BITSAT. This helped us immensely when the CAT examination went online three years ago, we were better prepared than others in making the shift. As you might be aware, our CAT tests are now conducted online every year without any glitches. You can hence rest assured that you are in experienced hands and have nothing to worry about!

  5. I am a student of Arts/Commerce. I have not been in touch with Mathematics ever since I completed my 10th Std. Will my academic background hinder my performance when I attempt CMAT or other MBA entrance exams?

  6. Most management entrance exams, including CMAT, test your command over Mathematics broadly at 10th Std. level. While you may have not been in touch with the subject for a while now, it should definitely be possible for you to ease back into the groove. By stressing on fundamentals, the study material and course methodology at T.I.M.E. are structured in a manner that best suits this purpose. You get the largest number of classes, which are conducted in a manner that ensures that you get a firm grasp of the fundamentals. In addition to quality study material, there are a large number of tests devoted to testing you on the various concepts that are taught in class. Apart from getting doubts clarified in class, students can also meet faculty by prior appointment and get their doubts clarified.

  7. I have studied in my mother tongue / regional language and have recently started using English. I feel that my English is weak. What do I need to do to clear the English section of CMAT and subsequent GD/PI?

  8. As with any skill, it is possible to improve your competence in English by putting in the required effort. At T.I.M.E. you will get a large number of classes to help you improve your English. Apart from attending the classes, no matter what you believe your level of comfort with English is, you will need to practice regularly. If you do all these, there is no reason why you cannot clear the benchmark required for CMAT.

  9. If I do not have a good academic record, can I still make it to the best B-schools?

  10. Over the last 20 years, our experiences with students have led us to conclude that the Written Test has the maximum weightage in the selection process while each of the following - Group Discussion, Personal Interview, Bio-data including Academics and Work Experience have lower weightages. Therefore, while your past academic scores have some weightage, you can certainly overcome any handicap that you might have by performing well in CMAT and the GD & Interview.
