FMS tips & Strategies



Faculty of Management Studies (FMS) conducts an entrance examination every year for enrolling students in its management programs. The process of clearing the examination can prove to be quiet difficult considering the fact that FMS is one of the most elite management schools in India.

Here are some of the tips which can prove to be beneficial while preparing for FMS-

  • It is essential to start studying at least 3-4 months before the actual examination
  • Excellent time management skill will take you a long way. You should make sure that you prioritise the time to be spend on different topics. Start with the topics you find easier and have a better understanding of and then move on to the more difficult subjects
  • Be extremely clear about the topics/sections that will be covered so that you don’t end up wasting your time studying about subjects that won’t even be asked in the examination
  •  Don’t despair even if your English language skills are not sound. Instead, you should read a lot of newspapers, magazines and so on. Mark the words you find difficult and then check their meaning from the dictionary. Also, try to use those words in your daily speech to ensure that you don’t forget them
  • For the English section of the FMS test it would be a good idea to concentrate on fill-in-the-blanks, spelling errors, origin of words, analogies, phobias, synonyms and antonyms
  • Take FMS sample tests. This is extremely important for clearing FMS where speed is a criterion for passing the test. The best option would be to take the FMS sample test as if it were the actual FMS exam. Don’t take any breaks and maintain strict adherence to time limits. After completing the paper, analyse the paper thoroughly for identifying the mistakes that you have made in the paper. Avoid the same mistakes
  • For the Math section, a thorough revision of XII standard mathematics should suffice. If you are from a non-mathematics background, then you can consider studying from a good GRE/ GMAT book for Quant preparation
  •  You should also master the math formulae’s as there are number of questions in the FMS test which would require their direct application
  • You could also consider joining a renowned FMS coaching institute for improving your basics
