MBA entrance exam season is on the brink of getting started. A number of
candidates will be fine-tuning their preparation right now, whilst there will

start their preparation. Those who fall in the latter group, should not let the
lazy voice within tell you: “Be practical, it’s too late”. Run away from
those who spread negativity. You may come across people who may say, “I’m
preparing for the last one year and it’s not working for me” or “These exams
are really difficult to crack, it’s not our cup of tea”. Remember these are the
people who don’t plan realistically or have laid back attitudes.
basic syllabus for these exams is roughly the same as Mathematics and English
taught in the class VII-X. So, ideally , if your fundamentals are in place then
it should take roughly 250 hours of preparation which means just 5 hours for 50
days or 3 hours for some 85 odd days i.e. max 3 months. However, you need to be
very focused in these 3 months and practice religiously. Also, you need not run
after solving more and more questions, instead focus on solving different

with, preparation time should be divided into 2 phases.
