  1. MAT Questions are Multiple choices and the test taker should be alert with timings. They should try to complete the papers at the stipulated timings. Though MAT test pattern is a prototype to CAT, MAT is easier than CAT. Students who have enough knowledge, good memory might have chances of scoring well. 85 – 90 percent score is considered as a good attempt and that attempt can be driven from various MAT sources available in Book markets, CD, Coaching classes and Online exams.
  2. If the test taker has sound knowledge in English Grammar, Analogies, Synonyms and Antonyms, Paragraph Reading and Answering then he / she can complete the paper within the stipulated time. Try to read variety of new papers, watch News bulletin, sharp your vocabulary for empowering English Language.
  3. Mathematical and Data Interpretation are eased with the help of Memorizing formulae, Keeping them in Finger tips, applying short cuts to solve the problems. Since Reasoning pattern does not have any exact formula to solve, the test takers should practice myriad tests to strengthen that area. Practicing more puzzles will help you to do well in Reasoning part.
  4. Always try to solve the easiest question and arriving correct answers which will push you up to do the rest of the part without any perplexions. Just keep doing GK at the end rather at the beginning to save your time. As the exam task is designed to complete 200 questions within 150 minutes, just imagine how speed and accurate you should. The said skills are greatly acquired using myriad online mock tests.
