General guidelines for preparing for Hotel Management Entrance Exam

The basic thing the students need to be aware is the significance of the exam. They require a focused plan. The one thing they can do to help them is to create a time table. They can separate each subject and study accordingly. Students can take small footsteps and achieve a lot within a small time.  The basic qualification needed by a candidate to appear for these exams is a pass in standard 12. They should have learned English as one of their subjects.

Hotel Management Entrance Exam Pattern

The majority of entrance exams in hotel management will include topics such as:

  • Aptitude for Service Sector
  • English Language
  • General Knowledge & Current Affairs
  • Numerical Ability and Scientific Aptitude
  • Reasoning and Logical Deduction

The examination will have a time period of 3 hours. 1 mark shall be provided to the students if they answer correctly. If they answer incorrectly, 0.25 marks will be deducted. In case the candidates have not chosen the correct answer or have marked above one answer, no marks will be given for that question. Negative marking is not there for the Aptitude for Service Sector section.

Set up a full proof study Plan

The students need to have a comprehensive study Plan as to help them achieve their goal. This study plan must be practical and convenient for the student to follow. They must be able to both learn as well as relax with the help of this study plan.

Ladders in preparing for the Exam

The students are recommended to plan their study time accordingly.  Each subject must have its own allotted time.  Candidates can divide their syllabus into small segments and thus they would be able to get familiar with the different subject topics. Another thing they must keep in their mind is not to over exert them. If they do so, they won’t be able to concentrate on anything at all.

Choosing the right place to study is very important. The place must be free of all hindrances. The students can either study at their homes or at libraries. If they like to study with groups, they can do so with their friends, this will prove to be an effective method to correct and clear each other’s doubts. On top of this they can also monitor each other progress and keep a time limit for each topic. This can be checked by practicing on sample test papers. The benefit of doing this is that they will be able to determine their stronger and weaker areas and correct them in time.
