The Joint Management Entrance Test & JMET

The Joint Management Entrance Test or JMET is traditionally divided into four sections,
• verbal communication,
• logical reasoning,
• quantitative ability, and
• data interpretation.

In this article we review the question types and some of the strategies to answer them successfully:

I. Verbal Communication
The reading comprehension section requires the candidate to read short passages and answer 3-4 questions that accompany it. Answering may involve simply giving out facts culled from the passage or inferring from the information therein. A careful reading of the passage is enough to get the right answers. Some questions would set you thinking on the tone/title of the passage or the author’s probable stance on a subject. Last year saw a good number of questions asking for the gist or the central idea of the passage. Also, there were some questions pertaining to the meaning of a word in the context of the passage. Remember that the contextual meaning could be a shade or several shades different from the literal meaning.

Verbal ability focuses almost equally on grammar and vocabulary. The grammar section includes questions that involve picking the grammatically correct statement. In addition to these questions, there are questions on punctuation that first made an appearance a few years back. The questions often involve conversion of voices from active to passive or vice versa and also, changing a statement from direct to indirect speech. There are a few questions on rephrasing a short statement/paragraph without altering its essence.
The Vocabulary section consists of fill-in-the-blanks questions, analogies, and also a few questions on correct spelling of commonly used words. The fill-in-the-blanks questions can be solved by eliminating options taking into consideration the tone and flow of the sentence even if one is not comfortable with the words in the options. Analogies might get a bit difficult if one doesn’t know the words in the question. Sometimes there are a few questions on synonyms and antonyms. The questions vary from being straightforward to extremely difficult and attempting those that one is sure of and moving ahead is the best way to go.

II. Quantitative Aptitude
Until a few years ago, this section involved higher maths of the kind that the average candidate would shudder to attempt. Math of the more accessible kind that appears in other entrance tests was not part of the test syllabus. But over the last couple of JMETs, this section has been simplified into a much easier version. With patience and presence of mind you can score fairly well in this section. Topics on which most questions are based include the following:

• Functions
• Percentages
• Probability and permutations-combinations
• Derivatives and integration
• Simple equations

III. Logical Reasoning:

The section is usually divided into the following subtopics:
1. Parajumbles: These questions consist of 4 sentences in a random order that the candidate has to arrange in a logically coherent order. Going by trends thus far, the level of difficulty is not very high.

2. LR caselets: This section involves logical reasoning. A set of 3-4 questions are to be answered based on a caselet. For the last two years, there have been obvious errors in this sections, so do not spend excessive amount of time wracking your brains over a question that is incorrect. You will be awarded full marks for all such questions.

3. Critical Reasoning: A small paragraph/caselet/conversation is given on the basis of which one must answer questions according to the assumptions made and the conclusion reached. Another variation of the question would be to paraphrase the passage keeping the central idea intact.

4. Strengthening/Weakening arguments: Again a variation of critical reasoning questions. A paragraph is given and one has to select the argument that will strengthen/weaken the position of the speaker most effectively. There might be more than one option that could be chosen, but you need to choose the one that is the most effective of them all. So, be careful and go through all the options before zeroing on your choice.

5. Syllogisms: A set of 3-4 statements is given and we have to find out other statements in the options that can be logically concluded from the given statements. Keep an eye on the keywords in the question statements, i.e., some, all, many, not all, some are not, etc.

6. Data sufficiency: Here you are required to find out whether one or both of the statements are enough to get to a unique answer.

7. Course(s) of action: Here, a statement is given and there are a few courses of action that could be followed to address the issue mentioned in the question statement. The best option has to be chosen, one that is practical, takes all possible outcomes into consideration, and doesn’t have any adverse effects.
8. Implicit assumptions: These questions require one to interpret the implied meaning. The right option would be an assumption that has affected the argument. Trivial assumptions or farfetched ones need to be eliminated in these kind of questions.

IV. Data Interpretation
Like those found in most other management tests, the DI questions present a number of tables, graphs, charts, and data. Last couple of years have seen the section become easier, and even though the questions might initially seem a bit intimidating to look at, they are pretty much easy to crack if one is persistent. In this section too an aspirant needs to be aware that some answers are nearly correct but not quite the solution. The common types of presentation of data include bar diagrams, percentage bar charts, pie charts, line graphs, and tabular data presentations.

Review Career for Job Growth

Again a new year is on your way… Christmas and New Year celebrations are hanging on the air. On every New Year we all will have a resolution to look upon the year. You set our short-term goals to beat on the go. Building a strategy to bring your dreams true will always gift a pleasant feeling. But the foremost thing is to review your past year with all its ups and downs. To heighten your career, of course along with crafting your strategy you need to evaluate it. Most of the companies set a year-end career review. But you need it do personally, to balance the work-life integration and to intensify a positive career growth.

Well, there you will meet so many opinions on what you did. Some may regret, some may praise you. But to know what you actually, do analyze yourself. No one knows you better than you. Do you think, you should have to get help? There is nothing big deal. Of course, you can get help from others to analyze you. But, you make sure that the person will evaluate you without sentiments. If you can point out your mistakes, believe in yourself, you are the best person to depend for reviewing your past year.

Don’t be delayed to assess the setbacks, progress, and future plans on your career. Get a clear picture of your career and make clear your career path on the next year. Craft it right now. You need to make your dreams come true. Make use of few guidelines, you can do it.

1. Go to the Calm Place:

Thinking to sit on your drawing room or, office room? That does not sound good. Get some fresh and sit alone. You need to sit in a quite calm place as you have to systematically and independently approach your artifacts from year of work.

2. Take Your Pen and Clipboard:

Oops, it is not a classroom test but obviously a written test where you set the questions and you write down the answers.  Yeah, you don’t want to miss out even a single progress or even a single drawback you made it on your way. While writing down your career experience of the past year, your brain also experiences the neuron impulse of what is wrong and what is right. It is not the better choice to work with Excel on your computer. Go for pen and paper.

3. Criticize:

Now you have all important experience of your last year career noted on your paper. Just look at your achievements, the skills you learned, and the opportunities you made use of. Analyze the perks on your career as you might accomplish some unlisted goals in your career. Check the list to find where you couldn’t do well. Points out your career interest and how much satisfied you are. Do you need to fix some job related issue? Mind it… You have to put that in your New Year resolution. See, your achievements… Be confident, you have to move ahead. Keep it in mind; there is no ‘stable career’ but ‘career growth’ and ‘career decay’.

4. Compare

Comparing your career experience with your colleague’s will help you to uncover few points which you missed out. Find out the achievements they made successfully. Why your manager put his/her name on Employee Recognition Programme?  It is not to figure out whether you are superior to them or inferior. Instead of that, take it as an example to fetch a good performance on the next year. Though you are good at doing your job and even if you enjoying it well, reform your activities to get bankable opportunities to learn new skills.

5. Meet your Mentor

Just visit your mentor, the one who have much insight on you. It may be your friend, your spouse, your Godfather or your teacher whoever it is; it is the time to meet him/her. It will help you to fix some career issues you face. They can enlighten you with some better ideas. Without any sentiments, they are the one who will give a better evaluation on your career style. Now you can craft your New Year declaration on calendar. Much better than the last year, is it? Keeps rock…
