With CAT scheduled to be conducted on 24th November, 2019, it leaves the aspirants with the last 10 days to win the race. The last lap is the most important and without the right strategy, the outcome can go haywire. Here are some tips that will help you stay focused, confident and motivated without exhausting yourself thoroughly.
1. Don’t stress out:
It is natural to feel overwhelmed with the syllabus and perceive yourself as under prepared. But don’t let that bring you down. This is the time to have faith in yourself and all those hours you have put in the preparation. Follow proper diet, get proper sleep, get some exercise and make time for some leisure activities as well. Stay calm and do not panic as this is what takes down even the best prepared students.
2. Practice with mocks:
Take 8 mocks in the first 8 days and finalize your strategy for D-Day. You have to know the topics which are your strength and which aren’t and attempt accordingly. Keep difficult questions for the last as they tend to take up a lot of time. Don’t take mocks on the last two days, keep those days for last minute revision of formulae, shortcuts and for relaxing yourself.
3. Go through previous year papers:
If you haven’t already done that, go through the previous year papers: 1990 to 2000 for quants and 2005 to 2008 for DILR as the questions had become more evolved toward the logic side then. Also, till 2008, the cat papers are authentic. After 2008, the papers available become memory based which means the questions aren’t exactly same to the ones in the exam but similar enough to give you a context and idea of the paper. So now would be the time to go through them, this will also make you more confident about yourself.
4. Be thorough with the important topics:
For VARC, you should know your way around para jumbles, para completion and para summary. For reading comprehension, reading with understanding is more important than the speed. Last year, VARC section was the saviour, so pay attention to this section equally well.
For DILR, ratio proportion, percentage, tables and graphs, venn, arrangements and patterns are important topics.
For Quants, profit and loss, time speed and distance, number system, geometry and modern maths are very important topics.
Go through all of them and practice with previous year papers and you will be good to go.
The better prepared you are, the more confident you will feel, and with great confidence comes huge success.
All the best for your exams!
