STRATEGY TO CRACK NMAT 2015Anisha Mukhija
- NMAT gives the option to start with section of your choice. Start with the section you are most comfortable with. LR section is strenuous so I’ll suggest not to start with LR.
- Start with English or Quant and doesn’t matter whichever section you chose to attempt first do keep a track of time for every single question. Some questions are intriguing but never get emotionally attached to any question.
- Remember NMAT is more about speed not about accuracy so attempt as many questions as possible, leave the unsolved questions mark them at the end when 1-2 minutes are left for the section.
- For LR section I’ll suggest to solve DI questions first as they always come in a set of 4-5 questions. Its very important to keep a track of time especially in LR section.
- Lastly, I would say do not panic. Be positive, confident and stay calm always even if you are unable to solve a series of questions. Paper always includes difficult questions as well, strategy is to find and solve easier ones first to save time.
- Just like you alter between sections, try to alter your individual topics as well. Do not get stuck on one particular topic for days. Try to switch to a new topic every time you change your section. This is important while revising. Sticking to one topic will not allow you to move on other topics.
- While practicing, try to practice subjects in an alternate manner. Practice quant section on one day (or few days) and verbal section on the second day. This will help you in maintaining the mood for practice.
