How to crack CAT.
1.Continue reading till the last day. Do not stop.
2. Identify specific areas of discomfort and try to read as much in those diversified areas. This will help in Reading Comprehension; Theme based questions and Para formation questions.
11.Ensure that you touch your peak performance just before CAT; do not burn yourself before that.12.The last 7 days must be utilized judiciously to gain maximum advantage from your hard work and efforts.13.Try to gather as much information you can.14.Stick to time. If you are taking a 2 hour test, take it for 2 hrs only. Be merciless, especially if you are taking them in your room/home. Don’t let anything disturb you in those 2 hrs.15. Have a strategy in mind before you start the test. Take 2-3 minutes to analyze the paper.16. Most importantly realize that, you have to get most out of the test. Don’t be egoistic and solve a problem for 2-3 minutes. If you get it in 1 min, its ok, beyond that, learn to leave problems.17. Try to read as many as possible and decide what to solve quickly. This knack for identifying so called sitters comes from taking 30-40 mocks in a span of 3 months.18. Always calculate accuracy/speed figures for individual sections and net. And try to maintain a stable figure of speed and accuracy. If there is an abrupt change in those figures, try to investigate and find out the reasons. Ideally 60% speed with 80% + accuracy will help you in getting good scores. But speed sometimes varies with easiness of the paper. Identifying the trends of speed/accuracy in aug/sept will help you to fine tune your strategy before the D-day.
19. Before starting the first mock, try to complete as many fundamentals as possible on QA topics. Use a note to jot down the unknown formulae/shortcuts.
20. While analyzing the QA Section, try to find out the sitters/easy ones you have missed out during taking the mock. And try to reason out.
21. Have some thumb rules based on your strategy.
