General Awareness for MBA Entrance tests

The General awareness section in the management entrance exams is very similar to the general awareness questions of any other examination but news and events relating to the business field would be given more prominence. General awareness is the component that is most likely to be found in every entrance or admission based examination but when it comes to MBA entrance examination, GA is a section that vast majority. It would be beneficial to take a look at the examples of different MBA Entrance tests which prioritize GA as a part of the testing process.


The candidates who are planning to appear for management entrance exams like IIFT, SNAP, TISS, IRMA, MAT, must know that the general awareness is given weightage in these exams. The most popular entrance examination for the admission process for management studies i.e. CAT, doesn’t have a section to gauge the candidate’s knowledge in General Awareness. Therefore, the candidates appearing for the above mentioned exams must have a good hold in the general knowledge section to score good in the entrance exam. Most of the time General Knowledge section is not given its due importance by the candidates and preparation for the same is done towards the end. To have a thorough knowledge in the field of general awareness, the candidates must start preparing for it much earlier. Watching news and reading newspapers would definitely increase candidate’s knowledge.

The section of general awareness comprises of general knowledge (GK), current or past happening of the world.
