Although the syllabus for most of the b-school entrance exams is nearly the same, there are a few topics that a CMAT aspirant should have a better hold of. The syllabus mentioned here is not exhaustive but only indicative based on the analysis of previous CMAT patterns.

The syllabus has been divided in 3 subheadings as “Very Important”, “Important” and “Less Important”. Students should decide their priorities carefully and try to cover the topics that are more important for their exam. However, please do not take this structure too seriously as this is based on past data and may not tally with future test papers.
