How to crack NMAT in 2 months?
Let us first start by dispelling a few myths about the exam As I have already mentioned. NMAT by GMAC 2020 is an aptitude exam and not a knowledge exam. Which means you don’t have to memorize a ton of things that are crucial for your success. In fact, the more knowledge you have doesn’t mean that you’ll get a higher score in NMAT. NMAT is an aptitude exam. This simply means that you need to be good at solving the questions purely on the basis of the most rudimentary concepts. These are usually whatever you have learned in English and Maths till class 10th.
Now, let us share with you a study plan to crack NMAT in 2 months:
60 days to NMAT
Just starting out with your NMAT preparation means you need to get all the basic concepts under the belly. This is required more in case of quant and lesser in case of Verbal and LR which require more of exam practice right from day 1. The first thing you need to start off with is an NMAT mock. Take an NMAT mock right on the first day of your preparation. This will give you an idea of what is your current standing and how much of an effort will be required to propel you towards the ideal percentile. Further, take a target of 10 days and cover all the basics of Quantitative Aptitude. You could learn from a good Quantitative Aptitude book or can take Books and Materials package from a reputed coaching institute. Covering the basics includes solving the solved examples in that book.
45 days to NMAT
Having covered the Quantitative Aptitude basics now is the time to put the foot on the pedal and get the ‘match-practice’. For the next four weeks, you will take three mock per week. This mock-taking exercise should be followed up with an in-depth mock analysis. Further, for Quantitative Aptitude, solve all the previous year actual NMAT questions. For verbal, in the mocks that you will be taking, ensure that you attempt all the questions of verbal. That is the eventual goal for you in the NMAT exam. To be able to solve all the questions of verbal with around 80% accuracy. For DI, the fractions and the basic Vedic maths questions that you would have studied in the first week should help. Spot one simple thing, where you are able to find out the easy questions across the sets. If not, keep an eye on them in the next mock.
30 days to NMAT
By this time, your NMAT admit card should be out already. Therefore, it is important for you to take all your NMAT mocks in exactly the same time slot as the time slot of your actual NMAT exam. It goes without saying that your mock taking should be followed up with a deep analysis of each mock and going back to the drawing board, if required, to revise the concepts you are weak at. After 3-4 mocks you will be able to solidify a strategy for yourself and it is advisable for you to follow that strategy.
15 days to NMAT
This is the time when you need to take a break from your work if you are currently working somewhere. Sit back at home. Decrease your mocks to about 2 per week but do a full revision of the concepts of all the topics that you have studied. The revision of the concepts should not take you more than one day once you are at home. On the other days, take up all the mocks that you had attempted earlier and go through them. Resolving 2-3 of your worst mocks is a good idea as it will refresh all the mistakes that you made.
The Final Week
Take your last mock here, which should also be the only mock that you take this week. Do not take any mock in the last 4 days. Light revision and glancing through some previous mocks could be helpful. Let go of any kind of study in the last 3 days. Go and enjoy a good comedy movie in these three days. Your mind needs rest before you take the NMAT exam.
