Early Start First time I was on time for any entrance exam but unfortunately I forgot to get my admit card attested. So please do so get your stuff attested. Were told to reach there at 8 but paper started at 9.45 so unnecessary wait and waste of time which was taking its toll on some of the students. But most of the students were chilled out and relaxed as most of them are not taking CMAT seriously. So first advise will be to chill and relax – have a coffee, tea or red bull before getting into the room. One of my students was reading logical reasoning book (input output). Last minute study won’t help so take the chill pill.
