Welcome to CAT Preparation Tips Section. Here you will find Useful Tips & Tricks to crack CAT Exam.
CAT Preparation Tips:-
1) Before starting your CAT preparation, read the official CAT bulletin and find out about the eligibility criteria, structure, date and time of the exam. Getting the list of test centers before hand is also a good idea.
2) Start taking mock cat tests after 3-4 weeks of CAT preparation. No doubt, you will score very less but this will make your preparation much more interesting and will motivate you to study harder. After 10-15 tests, you will find out your weak and strong areas of preparation. You will learn to manage your time by picking up questions smartly.
3) Take as many mock cat tests as possible. There are many websites which provide free online mock cat test like mypretest.com. Taking one test a day is sufficient. If you are short of mock cat tests, then try mock gmat tests.
4) Focuss on attempting maximum number of questions you know you can solve correctly.
The Optimum Strategy:-
There should be no fiddling with your Test-taking strategy at this late stage. As long as you know that the strategy you are using is giving you rewards, don't change it… For example, you would know if your best bet is to scan a passage and then move onto to the questions, while another person could be more at ease scanning questions before going onto the passage. So just stick to whatever works best for you.
Analyse the Tests:-
Test-taking is the most important aspect of your preparation now. Take two or at the most three tests a week. Test-taking should be followed by an in-depth analysis of the complete paper. Analyse what mistakes you have committed and how you will rectify them. Also check the questions that you have missed, and whether you have missed any 'easy' question! That will help in your choice of questions later. Remember, CAT is not about last minute cramming and revising. It's about being alive and mentally alert, here and now.
One of the biggest pitfalls is that as students we always search for short cuts, asking 'which is the easiest way out and which are the easiest questions?' A critical issue here is the tremendous urge to skip questions. We tend to lose concentration at different stages during the exam and tend to skip questions because of the pressures of time. But things get better if you follow a couple of golden rules. If you want to identify the questions to attend, it is imperative that you read all the questions.
Learn to relax:-
CAT is not the end of your life. Many a time, very high potential students have not made it to the IIMs because they could not handle the pressure. So unwind, go for movies, do things that help you relax, go for walks, listen to soothing music, meditate…. People who stick it out, hang in there and continue to peg away will make it.
