CAT 2020: Tips for Increasing Your Score

1. First Understand the Basics

CAT 2020 was conducted on 29th November 2020. To prepare yourself for the CAT entrance, first, understand the basic format and mark distribution. The clarity in the concept is the fundamental requirement in order to score really well. Most of the candidate do the mistake like they totally keep the hard topics untouched and re-revise the others a lot. But the candidates should focus on their weak topics and try to bring improvement in areas in which they are not so strong.

2. Focus on Non-MCQs That has No Negative Mark

Another trick to score good marks in CAT is to focus on solving non-MCQs or TITA questions. The Non-MCQs in the CAT 2020 exam do not have any negative marks for their wrong attempts. This provides a great relief to the CAT aspirants and gives them a big opportunity to give their CAT percentile a hike.

3. Take Mock Tests but don’t over practice

Almost all CAT aspirants give CAT Mock Tests in order to get themselves familiar with the exam pattern and questions. But according to experts, students must maintain a fine balance between the practice and over-practice, because by taking too many mock tests, the aspirant may end up taxing your brain too much before the exam. So it is better to plan your mock tests in a way that your body and mind will get enough time to understand your mistakes and get conceptual clarity in your next performance.

4. Accuracy and Speed

The main keys to scoring well in every entrance exam score are accuracy and the speed of the candidate. Many MBA experts suggest that the CAT questions are more oriented towards detailed and lengthy calculations which are mainly focused on decision making and time management. Therefore the candidate must ensure a fine balance between accuracy and speed to get a really good CAT percentile. So the ideal way to maintain a balance between speed and Accuracy goes by targeting the questions that are easy for you first so that they will not require a lot of time to solve.

5. Understand Time Management
