7 Smart Approaches to Crack CAT in Three Months!!

21Sep,2018
By Som Deep

Common Admission Test (CAT) is considered one of the toughest exams in India. A lot of students prepare for years together to score well in CAT. Because, good percentile in CAT is the key to unlock the gates of the IIMs, the prestigious institutions of India and other prominent B-schools.  This year, the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Kozhikode has decided to conduct the exam on November 26, 2019. So, approximately 3 months remained for the exam. If you have filled the form for the CAT exam but not started your preparation yet, at the same time you are getting panic by seeing other aspirants who are working very hard for the exam right from the beginning of the year. Then please calm down!! You still have time to prepare well for the exam to get a good percentile in CAT to make it to a good MBA college. Just prepare a good strategy by considering the following points and work accordingly.

1. Gather all the important materials required for preparation

Break your preparation into 3 parts i.e. basic, intensive, mock tests. First of all, read the books/materials (according to your syllabus) thoroughly to make your concept clear.  Once you understand the fundamentals, try to solve the difficult level questions. Then go for the mock test series. So collect your materials accordingly. Don’t forget to collect and practice previous year question papers. 

2. Every day counts, so be consistent

Keep a calendar on your study table and mark every passing day to know how less time left for the exam. You must know that you do not have a single day to waste on unproductive things. If you keep taking breaks, you are sure to lose your pace of study instead of accelerating it. Make a date wise routine and finish your tasks accordingly.

3. Concentration and time management

Concentration is a very vital factor to succeed in any exam. Especially the working persons who cannot allot the major portion of their time for study should be more focused. They should study 2-4 hours in weekdays and 7-8 hours in weekends with full concentration. Every aspirant should make it a habit of studying for 2 – 2.5 hours with full focus than taking a break of 5-10 minutes and again sitting for another 1-2 hours for study.

4. Improve your vocabulary and the ability to solve numerical data

In CAT exam, vocabulary and ability to solve logical and numerical data is given more importance. If you are strong in all these things then the result can be in your favour. So, take care of this thing and prepare accordingly.

5. Know your strengths

One need not be equally strong in all subjects. So learn to play to your strengths. Attempt more questions in the segment in which you are strong. 

6. Cultivate quick thinking ability

Try solving one problem in many different ways. Try to master the shout cuts. It helps you cultivate a quick-thinking ability and as a result of which you can attempt more questions with accuracy in the exam.

7. Take up mock tests

Initially, your scores might be pathetic but do not get panic. Keep on practicing test series. The most important thing you must do after giving every test series is to analyze the question patterns and your performance, identify your strength and weakness.

 Be confident, never give up and always keep yourself motivated. 

 

ALL THE BEST!!
