It is imperative that a candidate is well-aware about the syllabus for the examination. Even though the syllabus may be similar to the other management entrance examinations, however, MAT 2016 exam is different in the way it focusses on current affairs knowledge and otherwise, general awareness of a candidate.
Also, the difference from other bigger exams is not as pronounced as is in the difficulty level of the paper. The questions in exams such as CAT, XAT are generally of much higher difficulty as compared to MAT.
