Swati Umang 9th Feb, 2020

Hello! Hope you are doing good.

In order to clear any exam, the most important part is clearing the current affairs apart. So, revise as much current affairs as you can.

Also, at this point of time you should start giving mock tests or previous year's appears. This will help in trying to figure out the places where you lack.

Time management is the key in competitive exams so make sure to start giving previous year's test papers. Don't think about whether or not you know the topics or have revised. Everything will be good, once you strt giving test.

All the best


i appeared for the cat but my overall percentile was not so i m planning for the feb mat nd mah cet.but i have also applied for the sbi what should i do? should i preparing for the sbi clerk nd give up mat preparation? plzz suggest me?

Sampriti Student Expert 3rd Feb, 2020
You should appear for MAT and MAH CET. Just get some idea about what kind of questions are asked. If you score really well you can get a decent college which can build your career. But at the same time if you're thinking about SBI clerk then you must keep it also as an option. If you get through the interview you can definitely join and prepare for CAT alongside. It's always better to keep more options to choose from. There's not very much difference between the syllabus of SBI clerk and MAT/MAH CET. Only the banking awareness section of SBI is a little different but is easier to deal with. So you must appear for all the exams.

Good Luck
