About this group
Hi there everyone! The results are out and I am disappointed with the 0/6 that I have managed. I'm sure that it's the same with many of our Puys. But I will not be demoralized and will rise like the Phoenix from the ashes! Fellow ...

Yeah, u r very true... I also have felt that making short notes of important formulae and fundae can help to a great extent while doing the revision just before the exam....
I am also doing this and I am sure this year it will brings fruits for me from the IIMs...
:grab:

I also have the same problem friend. I am just not able to understand the questions asked in the paper . 😞 I got 97%tile in VA but my quant was dissmal. You got it right dude .... quant has become something more personal . MBA and other stuff have become immaterial . I just want to crack open quant CAT06 . Can any quant guru please give us any valuable tip to achieve it ??


i just want to say, that i have faced the same problem all my life where math is concerned. I have managed decent marks because i spent a lot of time studying very very hard... QA section is all about practice, confidence and and a little bit of exam sense.

Look at this years QA section.Upon seeing the paper, take a minute to form strategy.U should have realised that u should spend 40 mins minimum in QA (u should, if ur weak here) All u needed to do was about 5-6 2 markers and a 5 odd 1 markers to make it. thats almost 4 mins per question, on average. And thats ALL. Dont look at people who do 20 -25 questions and scare the bejeezus out of us minnows. Ur job is not to do all the questions, its to do enough.

Practice a lot, it instills confidence. Learn to quickly realise if u can do a question, or should u move on. Practice means , not only solving various questions, it also means trying out exam strategies and developing that exam sense, the one which tells u what to do when u see a paper. With a plan in hand within minutes of seeing the paper, u are less likely to get nervous, and crack the quant section. "Cracking" is a relative term, again... i had 96 %ile in QA this year, and i consider it an achievement.

Guys,
I tried for CAT in 2004 and ended up with 95 %le but I was not prepared at all.... I had a bad time going on then....But this time I am feeling a fresh energy in me telling me to take CAT '06 and I am sure this time I will surely make it and will get BLACKI....and in this journey from the land of nowhere to IIMland, I am sure to get u guys with me....
Best of luck to everyone....

hi guys,

May be in some way this is not an apt post for this thread....but till the time one is planning to take cat 06', i guess he can be a part of it....

actually my question is for all the maths whizkids, or it's more of an sos call...this year around i had a 98.1 overall in CAT with 99.1-va, 98.17-di and 31- quant.... yes u guessed it right...i wanna ask wat should i do about Quant....it was my second attempt and in none of the mocks or any exams i have managed to clear quant cutoff...though this 31 percentile is sure courtesy some random nervous marking or other rash move, but i wasn't expecting more than 80 percentile in quant anyway.....(basically i am not able to comprehend the questions their inferences, their hidden meaning) .... i have done the rounds of all the threads and books on CAT in the market.....but to no avail....and the worst part is with this kind of breakup i am as good as a 50 percentiler as i applied to sp and mdi only.. beside the IIMs..

though i am not too sure that will be taking cat again, but i still want to screw quant this time around, do what ever lil' possible...it's more like i have a personal grudge against this subj.(last year similar thing happened in XAT)..therefore i wanna know basically in 8-10 months (alongwith a consulting job as an analyst) wat can one do to become an absolute 99 percentiler in quant....

i know at the end of it i am the best judge of my position but i haven't been able to do it successfully so i am seeking some help from all you guys there...

i expect to make some headway after responses to this mail and make a start....

hey puys..
count me in for CAT 06 as well..well after a not-so-bad first attempt,Ill be in full gear.and abt preparation..i seriously feel the best time wud be somewhere in april-june to go thru the concepts of QA/DI and yeah..VA is sth u can develope all thruout ur life.so no fixed deadline for that.
anyhow as for my scores: net-96.38 QA-95.14 DI-85.xx VA-93.45
I have taken serious inspiration frm guys like VINZ and ANUPAM(well he surely has returned with 6/6 and so has vinz..gr8 going buddies!)..I make sure its 6/6 for me in CAT 2006! wait up lil catty..i am coming to bell ya!
