Top MBA entrance examinations you should attend

Apart from the seal on the graduation certificate, the institution needs to know the caliber of students like the skills, knowledge, ability, and personality.

In an MBA college, the common admission process is through conducting an entrance exam. The reason for conducting these entrance exams is to know the caliber of students in various areas like Numerical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, Diagrammatic Reasoning, Logical Reasoning, and Inductive Reasoning.

  • Numerical Reasoning

This type is to understand how well the candidate will effectively interpret graphs, data, statistics, or charts.

  • Verbal Reasoning

This is to identify whether the candidate understands written information and the passage of text.

  • Diagrammatic Reasoning

This is to evaluate the candidates’ ability to follow diagrams, synthesize data, identify patterns, and solve problems logically.

  • Logical Reasoning
