What are the weightages attached to various rounds? CAT/XAT score, Cn/PI rounds etc.
With the second MICAT just round the corner, here are a few tips:
. The MICAT has been designed as a comprehensive test to assess those abilities, namely, analytical ability, verbal ability, logical reasoning, divergent thinking, written communication skills, creativity potential and general awareness about contemporary social and industry related issues including areas covering media, marketing, advertising and business.
. Prospective candidates should be well-read, innovative & intelligent with an analytical bent of mind. They are also expected to be aware of contemporary social and industry issues including general awareness covering media, marketing, advertising and business.
. A regular habit of reading newspapers and practice in analytical and creative writing would be useful.
. Please note that the following tips are guidelines based on our own experience as well as the sample paper. The actual paper structure may or may not differ from this.
. There will be 2 parts to the MICAT:
a. Part 1: This has four sections A (Logical Reasoning), B (General Awareness),C (Quant/Analytics) & D (Verbal). All questions in the section will have only one appropriate answer. Each wrong answer will get ¼ negative marks. Un-attempted questions do not carry negative marking.
b. Part 2: This is the creative writing section and has two questions. Answers to part 2 are to be typed out in the space provided.
2. Section 2 (psychometric test) has three sections: E, F & G.
There isn't any right or wrong answer to the questions posed here. Your answer sheet will not be evaluated if you fail to answer all the questions. This section is a qualifier.
. An essential tip is to manage your time in advance. Come prepared with an approximate assumption of the time you will spent on each section and sub-section.
The mix of question types can include word association, statement/assumption, data sufficiency, cause-effect, and problem/answer figures. These are purely based on common sense.
Go through websites such as Afaqs, CampaignIndia/Asia, Nielsen, Newswire, Thinking Aloud, Reuters, etc. Know brand logos and taglines well. Read up on latest mergers, joint ventures, and other business news besides general information about the Indian economy, UN-related news, names of prominent industry people in the fields of media, marketing, advertising & business. Besides this, read the news regularly to be up-to-speed with general social issues.
Brush up on basic concepts of geometry, profit & loss, simple & compound interest, relations & functions, probability, data interpretation, linear equations, work/time, permutation/combination, speed/time, mixtures, basic calculus (integration/differentiation) and the likes . The questions should be tackled with an analytical outlook. They will test your logic, common sense & approach in terms of application word problems, more so than your memory of extremely complicated formulae.
You can be given a couple of essays/passages and asked MCQs based on your reading. There is no set way to prepare for this, except brush up on your language & reading comprehension skills.
Build your writing and creativity skills. You may be given story writing exercises based on a series of pictures, justification of issue related essays, and the likes. Ensure your arguments are clearly thought out, logical and make use of relevant examples from your personal knowledge repertoire & general awareness.
As previously stated on this group, there is again no set way to prepare for the psychometric section. The test will assess how good a fit you are for MICA and whether you possess the qualities it aspires for its students to have. The questions will be designed to analyze you in terms of personality, attitude, beliefs, abilities, skills, etc.
Hope this helps you prepare a little better!
Good luck! :)
