TIPS FOR CRACKING CAT-2010


TIPS FOR CRACKING CAT-2010

  • Mock CATs are the best way to test yourself and analyse your strengths and weaknesses.
  • Remember not to stress yourself too much by over-doing it. 2-3 full-length Proc-Mocks a week should be ideal for those in the final stages of their preparation.
  • Analysing each test is of utmost importance to identify where you’re going wrong, and which sections need revision.
  • Previous years’ CAT Papers are also a big help in figuring out the popular question types, looking for patterns and predicting which topics have a higher probability of coming in the paper. 
  • Don’t forget to concentrate on your strengths as well, lest you end up devoting all your time only to the problem areas. In the examination, begin with the section you’re most comfortable with.
  • It gives you the confidence to tackle the more difficult ones, but you also don’t waste precious time labouring with the others. Alternate between a few questions from the Reading Comprehension and Data Analysis section so you don’t feel the pressure of either. Another reason you should not devote all your time to one section is that you may not be able to clear the cut-off for the other sections.
  •  Reading newspapers and books are always a good idea, and 1 hour a day devoted to this will do wonders for your Reading Comprehension score. Similarly solving puzzles, crosswords, news stories with numerical data and graphs will help you achieve a better Data Analysis score. 

The perfect CAT strategy
Coming to the big question – the perfect 
CAT strategy, make sure you have one in place, but nothing so rigid that a few shockers in the paper make you a nervous wreck. Proc-Mocks should be a good way of testing different approaches to how you should go about the paper, and ensuring that you attempt maximum questions in the 2.5 hour period. Choosing smartly has been the key to a great CAT score for many. Pick questions you think you should be able to deal with easily and concentrate on those. The CAT is more about choosing the right questions than your in-depth knowledge.

And while you’re mentally making a note of all these, the most important thing to remember is that the CAT’10 is not the end of the world. You will still have many more attempts at scoring a better percentile or appearing for other premier B-school exams. Take sufficient breaks from your study schedule to keep your mind fresh and your brain working. A jumpy, over-worked, stressed 
CAT aspirant is more likely to make mistakes than somebody who is relaxed, calm and well-rested.
