September 08, 2010- With the coveted Faculty of Management Studies or FMS entrance exam just a few months away, students are preparing hard for clearing this particular test. FMS is a renowned name in the management college circuit. Students rank it as the second best option after IIM's. Hence, those who miss cracking CAT pin all their hopes on the FMS entrance test. This year the FMS entrance for the 2011-13 batch is tentatively expected to take place on Sunday, 23 January, 2011. The FMS entrance in most often held after all the B-schools are done with its entrances. This time around the date has been pre-poned because of the preponement of CAT 2010 examinations which are to take place from 27th October onwards.
The problem which most student face while appearing for FMS examination is that the ratio of time provided and the number of questions to be solved in that time period is quite skewed. Unlike other B-School entrance exams where a student is expected to solve 60 questions in 2 hours, 15 mins the FMS entrance test offers 200 questions to be solved in a period of 2 hours. Thus, the students are expected to be on their tips with all the solutions and calculations to crack this particular paper.
The students have to do exhaustive practice and take plenty of mock tests while preparing for FMS entrances. The calculations have to be fast, the vocabulary has to be strong and the opinions about the current issues on the political or societal front have to be logical and concrete enough to showcase an impressive aura during the GD and personal interview sessions. The competition for FMS 2011 admissions is going to be quite high as thousands of students would be appearing for a handful of seats at the institute.
The only key to crack fms exams is practice and hard work. Improve the calculations abilities by first understanding the concept well and then going in for rigorous practice for varied equations of it. Reading a myriad of literature, fiction and non-fiction can help a great deal in getting a strong grip on the vocabulary, while making an effort to watch debates on the national news channels regarding the burning issues of society can help in having a logical perception about the issues.
