Those who are preparing for MBA exam other then CAT and want to grab seats in top MBA colleges that are affiliated to exams other then CAT  like SYMBIOSIS, IIFT ,GOA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT and other good colleges in CMAT, in whose entrance paper almost 30% questions are from GENERAL AWARENESS makes it mandatory for students to prepare for General Awareness.

General awareness questions are generally asked in these exams to test your interest in living world and retaining capacity of your mind and students find it difficult to crack this section due to its diversification and examiner has authority to pick up questions from any topic of his choice!!!!

But like Bank PO, MBA exams has similar pattern when it comes to picking up questions, as MBA is being dealt with business strategies, about 30% of questions are asked from business area only and  rest from current affair ,sports, literature, politics etc!!

So, if you want to score up to 70-80% in general awareness it is necessary to cover some specific topics and prepare for them. For your convenience I have listed below some topics that you should be focusing on -

1  - Current affairs of the year 2013
2  - Merger and acquisition of companies in 2013
3  - About RBI, its policy and rates
4  - About major Global companies
5  - About major Indian companies
6  - FII and FDI
7  - Nobel prize - 2013
8  - Stocks and Market Happenings
9  - Booker's prize - 2012-2013
10 - Head of organization eg. IMF, WTO etc
11 - CEO of major Indian Companies
12 - Business terminology

I hope this will help you to tackle general awareness question in MBA exams
