    Topics to be covered for MBA entrance examinations :

    There is not specific syllabus or format for most of the management entrance tests, but tackling them requires strong quantitative, verbal, logical reasoning and data interpretation skills. Some of them also have general knowledge and current awareness questions.

    English Languages: This has passages with questions based on their contents to test your comprehension, use of words, phrases etc. Also tested would be knowledge of the rules of grammar vocabulary, sentence completion, synonyms, antonyms, analogies, etc.

    Quantitative ability: This section has questions that assess how fast and accurate one can be while working with numbers, understanding quantitative problems involving use knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, set theory, etc of the secondary school syllabus as also some topics usually covered in plus tow including permutation and combination, progression, probability, etc.

    Data Interpretation: This section helps to measure one’s ability to interpret data given in the form of tables, common graphs and charts.

    Logical ability: Questions in this section measure how quickly and accurately one can think, analyse and reason from figures, facts and situations given.

    Re: Topics to be covered for MBA entrance exams?

    Hii Friends,
    MBA is a test of your attitude, aptitude and approach. The right combination of these three is a must to get through process.

    Stage 1:

    The Written Test - Most institutes conduct their Written Tests between November and January. The written tests, include the following:
    Ø Quantitative Skills:- This section of an MBA written examination tests skill levels of aspirants upto Higher secondary school mathematics.
    Ø Verbal Ability: - This section includes Grammar, English usage, Reading comprehension, Vocabulary and other aspects of English language
    Ø General and Business Awareness: - It includes static and current general knowledge and business awareness.
    Ø Reasoning Abilities: - This includes puzzles, critical reasoning, visual reasoning etc.

    Stage 2:

    The Group Discussion and Interview - This stage of the process is held between February and March for most of the institutes. GDs and PIs are undertaken to check a candidates personality traits. Personality traits being checked in a GD are Group Behaviour, Awareness, Communication skills, Reasoning ability, Flexibility, Leadership, Assertiveness, Initiative, Confidence, Creativity to name a few. An interview can be broadly categorized into Personal Interview and Group Interview. In a Personal Interview apart from the personality traits an interviewer or the panel is interested in knowing about candidates academics, goals and self awareness level. In a Group Interview, apart from the parameters mentioned above, a candidate is also checked on his analytical ability.

    Stage 3:

    The Final Call: After having cleared the above two stages you will receive that all-important Final Call letter informing you that you have been selected.Most of the institutes ask the candidates to pay the first installment of the course within 30 days of the date of the call.

    Good Luck !!
