1. What is FMS admission Test all about?

FMS is one of the premier management institutions under university system in India in conducting Entrance Tests for its highly-rated programmes. Our own test, since 1967, is designed to examine the skill and aptitude of an applicant for the management courses taught at FMS, University of Delhi. There is no prescribed syllabus or format for this multiple choice 2-hour admission test. The previous admission tests usually comprised the following basic areas:

* Quantitative ability
* Verbal ability
* English comprehension
* Analytical ability & Logical Reasoning

Important Note: The total percentile rank and sectional percentile rank scores will be declared in the result of FMS entrance tests to be held in 2010. The merit list will be prepared on the basis of total percentile rank scores. At least 50th percentile rank score in each section of the test is required by a candidate to qualify for being short-listed in GD and Interview. The percentile rank will be calculated on the basis of the category of the candidate. Therefore, inter-category transfer or comparison will not be possible.
