How to Prepare

Preparation Tips

In the test, there will be 60 questions (may change yearly) with topics like - verbal reasoning, language comprehension, logical reasoning and GK. Other than the general knowledge part, everything is pretty easy. As per the GK, be thorough with the basics ( from any standard book or read up online). The math is more bit like SAT but easier. The weightage of the entrance test shouldn't be more than 50%. As far as the skills assessment is concerned, all you need to concentrate on is the writing assignment where your sentence construction and language fluency will be tested. After that, you have the interview which is pretty basic and is the most important. They'll ask the main questions- why this course, why Christ, hobbies, etc. Just be confident and be aware of your body language. For CEP, questions on English current affairs would be important, Best of luck!

Study Material (Standard Books)

Wren and Martin- High School English Grammar and Composition for the English Section. Books for Static GK- Lucent GK.
