Sales profile is the best profile.  I can't understand why people have a pity feeling for it. Sales is a field where you can survive only if you have the skill And it's a born talent.  The art of convincing.  There is nothing wrong in that.  I've worked in it sales and it's the best job I've ever done....  Go ahead

puys! since the normalisation factor's impact will be very less this time.. I feel like i am comfortable in va/lr. Attempting 40+ questiions with 80%accuracy is a good to go. or should I reduce my attempts to increase accuracy.? moreover my scores r like QA-15Attempts/13 correct VA/LR-40attempts/26-30 correct.. how much percentile I can expect if the same happens in real CAT.??

Identify easy, average and typical questions

The paper of CAT is set in a very smart way. It is the technique of students that how they identify easy, average and typical questions of the paper. There are many questions that can be answered by solving up to two or three steps. These questions always raise your percentile and saves times for other questions that are typical. If you have analyzed difficult questions then don't just waste your precious time on them, leave them and move to the other questions. When you are sure that you have completed all these questions then it is a good time to solve difficult questions. Also your raised confidence will help you to solve them easily.

Apply different methods

As there may be some situations where you will not be able to solve problems by your learnt method. So don't just stick to a single method, try all the methods you can apply for the question. Few questions are not method based so for then use hit and trail method to crack them. Applying all possible methods will raise your chances of solving any problem.

Optimize your time

I am not joking but problems of CAT exam is not that much tough. If you spend some time on them, you will easily find their solution. So what is the key ingredient that creates so much difference in your percentile and toppers percentile. It is your optimization of time. You will be given specific time for doing complete test and how you use your time? How quickly you solve problems is all what we call CAT EXAM?

Elimination of odd choices

Sometimes we find stupid options for few problems. These stupid options are kept there to waste your time because you will think about them for few seconds surely. Try to be mature (Not over mature) in the exam. You should be at least this much smart that you don't waste your time in thinking about these options. As you find these options in the problem, just eliminate them and start focusing on the rest ones.

Use shortcuts

You should memorize all the general and shortcut formulas of mathematics so that you can quickly answer any question by using them. With shortcuts you can save lots of you precious time.
