Looking for the abroad universities offering Admission without TOEFL. Or How to get admission abroad without TOEFL. There are many international students who do not possess English as their native language and they are not equipped with the skills in the English language which are required to take admission in any foreign university where English is compulsory. https://www.meetuniversity.com/blog/abroad-universities-offering-admission-without-toefl/#.Vr2-1CB97IU

Studying abroad is a dream for many Indian students. Most of the foreign universities require test scores of IELTS or other contemporary exams during their admission procedure. These exams are quite difficult. Many students find it difficult to crack these major tests and exams. These students have the option to apply to colleges who take in students through Admission without IELTS. These universities do not require the candidates to sit for such exams; they do not need to attach their test scores during the admission process. Though they give a lot of importance to your academic performance yet they do not make these test scores compulsory during the admission procedure.

Dear MICAspirants,

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:

1. Section1

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 ΒΌ 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.

Logical Reasoning
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.

General Awareness
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.

Quantitative/Analytical section
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.

Verbal section
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.

Descriptive section
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.

Psychometric section
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! :)

Hello Guys,

I hope you find this message in best of your spirit. This message for all who aspire to prepare for GMAT through self-study or by joining some study group.

I am planning to start a study group in PUNE. The clear agenda is regular study rather weekly assessment plan. As part of my plan rather than focusing or teaching each other concepts, we will commence with assessment. It will definitely help you to identify the areas where you are lagging. All the concepts involved into those tests will be discussed thoroughly. Whatever concepts you have gathered will be tested and argued to its full extent. Ultimately which will prepare you to the apply those concepts better into your exams.

PS : We will be focusing more on Verbal section.

I am highly motivated to start it asap, as I want to be ready with my GMAT score way too early so that I can dedicate most of my time to the application (essays writing). Ideas and road maps have already been drawn, looking for few more serious folks who can share the motivation and contribute to our disciplined study plan.

My funda would be, Read books (good books), gather concepts and come together to apply what you have gathered.

PS: This is purely non-profitable plan, and the only motive is to keep up the motivation and enthu. to fetch 750+ in GMAT.

I shall give more details and share my contact once I am ready with commodities for Inception. Please keep checking this space for more updates on this.

Best Regards.

Hi Friends ,

I gave GMAT last month and got a score of 680 (Q50, V31, IR-5)

I wanted to know what all good b-schools* I have a chance of converting

My Profile

X = 85%

XII = 85%

Grad = 72% (Engineering in Electronics from DCE, Delhi)

Work-ex = 43 Months in Ernst & Young as a Consultant. Have traveled to Africa (2 Yrs) and S.E.Asia (1 yr) for work. ( Have won 2-3 professional awards)

Extra- curricular :- Average. Nothing great

* Good b-school = Top 15-20 B-schools as per major rankings (like QS global, FT etc) + ISB

Rahul, at MYRA we prefer GMAT as our primary test score. With your credentials, you'd stand a good chance. Take a look at our website (www.myra.ac.in) for more details.

@Anshulmba Thanks. I actually thought that 680 is a very bad score and might reflect badly on my scorecard, that's why I had cancelled it. I will reinstate it now
