Let us see which other exams can be given and what are the types of management entrance exams in India.

Type of Management Entrance Exams:

  • Content focus
  • Speed focus

Content Focus

  • CAT- Common Admission Test
  • XAT- Xavier Aptitude Test
  • GMAT- Graduate Management Admission Test
  • IIFT- Indian Institute of Foreign Trade

These exams focus on the content, the difficulty level of these exams is way higher than the one which is based on the speed with a basic difficulty level.

The strategy of these exams is to have very high accuracy and maximize the number of attempts.

Speed Focus

  • MICAT- MICA Admission Test
  • TISSNET- Tata Institute of Social Sciences National Entrance Test
  • MAH-CET – Maharashtra Common Entrance Test

These exams focus on the speed as their level of difficulty is comparatively easy. In these kinds of tests number of questions are more and you have to solve these questions in less amount of time.

“MOVE ON” is the main strategy in these exams, one cannot get stuck only on one question. You should try the round strategy, try solving the easy questions first which can be solved within 1 minute.

Solve previous years’ question papers, so that you can be familiar with the paper pattern, durations, how much time do you need, and also the difficulty level
