CAT 2017 is about 3 months away and the candidates are feeling the wave of competition sweeping through. Amidst making it to early morning coaching classes and preparation, the candidates would be taking mock tests and preparing for the CAT exam.
This time, CAT preparation is all about identifying mistakes in the course of studying and rectifying them by way of practice of mock papers. In the 2 months that remain, the students must be done with their basics by October. It is not recommended to start reading on those topics that you have not even read about. Mock tests and short video lectures would help students perfect their competence levels and know where they stand.
Analysis of the mock tests that a candidate gives is also very important. Enough time must be spent to understand the timing of mistakes and the thinking approach invested in the same, to work on one's strengths and weaknesses. An attempt must be made to clear the weakest of sections with the minimum cutoff required.
At the same time, enough attempts should be made to maximize one's strengths and exploit it to the required potential in the examination. Analysis of a mock test also helps a candidate pick the right number of questions to attempt and avoid questions that are deceptive by nature.
CAT to most of the extent is also about choosing your time right and managing it well across all the sections. There are no incentives when you go to choose a tough question over an easier one. By increasing the frequency of the mock tests and taking a minimum of 2 per week, across standard timings would make preparation more focused, consistent and habitual for the candidate.
The frequency of mocks that a candidate gives would help him decide 5 minutes into a section, as to what can be easily attempted by him and what would be difficult in general. Also, the candidates are required to make a practice of noting down their mistakes and working on the improvement of the same. A repository of the mistakes made can be for future reference by candidates to remember them and avoid the same in the future.
Also, if a candidate is relying too strongly on a particular section for doing well in the exam, not a single topic must be left in the exam to be done well. Luck cannot be taken into account to be effectual on the date of the exam. While these are general guidelines that are given for candidates to be followed over a period of two months in order to maximize their performance and bell the CAT exam.
Into the final lap to the CAT, candidates must revise their notes and maintain their composure to ensure the muscle memory that they have acquired through regular practice stays active and not stressed. A good sleep and healthy diet ensures a sound mind right before the exam devoid of any stress in all calmness. So All the Best!
