When APTECH initially failed to upload right questions in Sample CMAT; there were rumors around on how the real test is going to be. So far reports suggests the maiden CMAT is going on smoothly. Candidates who are the first to ride online CMAT on 20 February 2012 had felt the test easy and importantly the technical failures are almost void.
Santhosh a final year B.Com graduate says the test is much like the AIMA’s Management Aptitude Test (MAT) though few other students Career Mitra spoke to compared with CAT–. It wasn’t as tough as CAT but yes the paper can be answered if you prepare decently says Akanksha Raj from Delhi.
As in any test probably the toughest area where test takers fumble are the GK or Current Affairs section. CMAT too has a General Awareness section those who are taking CMAT in the next few days can make a note of this. Brush through some GK topics you might have a better chance of securing a good rank.
CMAT results are to be out on 11 March 2012, a national level merit list will be drawn based on the marks in CMAT. In case of a tie with other test takers sectional cutoffs play a role. Quantitative Techniques & Data Interpretation gets more weight while General Awareness Section gets least weight in tie breaker.
