    The above is an indicative plan to maximize the impact of your preparation in the final few weeks prior to CAT. You may need to fine-tune the same basis what you have covered so far, when you started your preparation and your specific strengths and weaknesses.

    It is strongly advisable that you use every single workshop/session/AIRCAT/interaction as an opportunity to surround yourself with positive and serious aspirants and mentors apart from seeking and getting valuable inputs from your mentors. Staying at home/college during the last few weeks is likely to cause you to lose track, skip important things and even get de-motivated or distracted at times. So, make these last few weeks count big!
