Doubts regarding the written qualifying exam

I have applied for MBA(CPM). Could you please give me some info about the written qualifying exam. Is it similar to the management aptitude test or will it contain questions related to the construction field? Also I have started preparing for the MAT syllabus very recently and I'm an architecture student so I do not have touch with mathematics so how difficult do you think it will be for me to pass the entrance exam?

The WAT (Written Ability Test) is the recent replacement for Group Discussion. Most of the IIMs and other prestigious B-Schools have removed the Group Discussion and added Written ability test as their selection procedure.
In Written Ability Test, the candidates are asked to write an essay on current affair topics or on some critical and diverse issues. The test checks how the candidates present their thoughts and opinions in a structured manner while including personal ideas.
Important Tips For Written Ability Test
Dont use jargon:
It is suggested to make your language accessible to the readers. Make the essay assertive but write in simple language. Write like a company who is drafting a quote for the customer.
Be interesting while writing:
It is advised not to bore the reader with your personal example, readers need facts from credible sources. Use your personal example only if that topic demands you to.
Dont be verbose:
Be concise while you are writing. Use substitute words for long sentences. Being verbose not only takes up space and time, but also confuses the reader what you want to convey.
I wish you all the best.
Cheers !!
