B-schools, in their search for excellent managers, try to pick all-rounders rather than bookworms. This is why General Knowledge is an important element in their selection process.
GK is gauged through written tests in exams like IIFT, SNAP, XAT, and NMAT. The student is put to test on both static and dynamic GK, with a major focus on current affairs and the business scenario.
It is also tested through Group Discussions and Personal Interviews. If you have appeared on the CAT, then this is the area you need to work on, now.
To help you perform better, Get Ahead, in collaboration with Top Careers & You, an organisation that trains CAT aspirants, brings you a FREE sample GK paper, with an answer key.
All you need to do is download the questions and answers and take the test.
