General Knowledge often neglected, forms an important part of any MBA entrance exam. Apart from MBA entrance exams there are other exams like Civil Services, SSC, Bank PO etc. General Knowledge section comprise Static GK and Current Affairs. Under Static GK, there is political, financial, strategic, world history, geographic and other sections as well. The Current Affairs comprise of all the news in the last 2 years. Often GK proves to be the deciding factor in exams like XAT , IIFT and SNAP as students can’t clear sectional cut-off despite clearing overall cut-off. It is advised to prepare this section by playing GK games like quiz up and practice the section while playing online games rather than preparing on the one go.
