The first step to the road to Department of Commerce,DSE is nailing your CAT Exam. To assist you with fine tuning your strategy , we bring the journey of some of the Current MIBians.

Davender Singh ,Cat percentile 97.84 CAT 2020

"CAT exam, as I have always thought, is never about how much you know but how you utilise ‘what’ you know. It is not always that strategy that suit someone with high percentile would suit you too. The very initial stage for preparation of CAT shall be for you to find the best approach to solve the paper and the strategy you want to use.

Well, talking about the individual sections,

VARC: For VARC, I took a very mathematical approach. By mathematical approach I mean treating the passage questions with facts present in the comprehension rather than dwelling in my opinion. You should practice enough to distinguish what type of question is asked, whether it is an inferential one or factual one or contextual one or maybe upon the central idea. I am sure everyone who is preparing for CAT have heard how important reading is, you all are told so because it LEGIT is important. Make sure to make it your habit to read editorials and extracts from sites like Aeon.

LRDI: Well, I flunked the section and the reason was I changed my strategy, that always suited me, a day ago. LRDI is all about practice. Make sure to know beforehand which it your forte among LR and DI and approach the paper likewise.

QUANT: I always had affinity towards maths so this topic was not an issue for me. Most of the people have a perspective that quant section is all about heavy formulas and huge calculations. It is actually the opposite. Make sure to get your concepts clear on the dominant topics like Number system, Algebra and Geometry. Practice as much as you can, go for Mocks even if you haven’t completed the syllabus because that prepares you to sit for the actual exam.

When the D- day comes, be COOL and give your 100 percentage."

Himanshu Vanshiwal, From 80 percentile in CAT’19 to 97 percentile in CAT’20

"The most important thing during CAT prep is keeping an upbeat mood. After the CAT 2019 exam, I was extremely disappointed but I did not lose hope, I was determined to give my best shot during CAT 2020. In Cat 2020 I was careful not to panic and my 2 cents for CAT prep will be to stay relaxed and look for the right questions.
You could customise your strategy in each section however your main task is to identify 40-50% of the easiest questions.
What worked for me may not work for you, But I will suggest that you approach questions logically instead of following a formulaic approach. During the exam, you generally forget the formulas and shortcuts so it is important to know how to solve the questions right from the first principles

The Greeks had a saying, Pride goeth before a fall. As in life, So in CAT, your pride can be your downfall. Don’t get too hung up on one question, moving on quickly is a crucial skill.
Above all, remember to take deep breaths and keep yourself relaxed throughout the 2 hours.
All The Best for the D-Day, May the force be with you"

Siya Aggarwal, from 32 percentile in the first mock test to 95 percentile in CAT’20

"CAT exam I have always believed is not a test of your skills or aptitude in a particular subject but it is primarily a test of your decision making ability. When I initially began my prep , my strategy wasn’t precise and I used to attempt a ton of questions however in the last few months I redirected all my focus on hitting a 80-90 % accuracy level. Now coming to the individual sections

VARC- this was my strong point as I always had a good reading habit. However, on the D day the section didn’t go as well as I pivoted my strategy and attempted questions I wasn’t sure about. This is perhaps the key learning from my experience. Socrates said “the unexamined life is not worth living” . As in life ,So in CAT . The unexamined passages are not worth doing. Remember, 0 > -1 if you don’t understand a passage move on quickly and save your precious time and prevent yourself from negative marking.

LRDI and Quants - Well , I prefer clubbing these 2 sections together as they were initially very challenging for me. I hadn’t studied maths for years now and it won’t be an exaggeration to say I was mathematically challenged at the beginning. However, I used this self awareness to my advantage. I hyper focused on LR and arithmetic and attempted the questions with almost 100 % accuracy .
Despite low attempts, the accuracy helped me score fairly decent.

Another thing I would like to add is during the prep stage and especially during the latter part of the stage don’t distract yourself with what isn’t immediately important.
A lot of youtubers put out videos like " which section will be difficult " " what profile will be selected in xyz college this year" all of this is baseless speculation.
Try and focus on the CAT exam and then you can decide the path forward.

All the best for the D- Day. Fingers crossed, you’ll do great

Yes wait for sometime

Hello Ankit the cutoff keeps fluctating according to the candidate pool .
And the composite score depends on not just cat percentile but other aspects of a candidate’s profile such as academics etc


Wait for a couple of days.
Let us know if the problem persists

Hi, thank you for your reply, I just wanted to know the minimum Composite score and minimum percentile of the selected candidates in EWS catergory of previous year.

Can’t predict the exact percentile but anyone with 93+ percentile and good academics will have high chances to covert…
although it depends on number of number of applications recieved each year
So do apply
