About CMAT

Oliveboard is a great resource with mocks that test a variety of concepts. I used both the CAT and CMAT mocks . The personalized practice section is really useful and allows you to improve on your weak areas. Also the option of dividing a mock into four parts is great when you can't carve out 2-3 hrs at a stretch.

I did not want to join a coaching institute as I had a full-time job. Oliveboard was referred by a friend and i used it for CAT & CMAT. It had everything I needed for my preparation including videos and mock tests. Loved the interface and the reports plus the personalized practice.

It is a wonderful platform. I especially liked the pattern where student can take part-tests. It's all one can ask for.

Going through Mock CMAT and in depth analysis on Oliveboard was really helpful. Taking mock tests on Oliveboard will certainly reduce Internet test phobia of students!
