CAT successfully completes 5 years of online testing and surely successfully so. This year’s CAT –at least the first day, first slot – can be called the Online CAT’s first serious attempt to return to basics. By basics, I mean, bringing back the importance of having the right attitude and control over application of topics and requisite persistence throughout the paper.
Nearly everything can be called similar to what was last year in terms of the sub-sectional break up of questions – with 21 questions of Quantitative Aptitude and 9 questions of Data Interpretation forming the 30 questions of the first section and with 21 questions of Verbal Ability and 9 questions of Analytical Reasoning forming the 30 questions of the second section.
Overall paper can be called Moderate to difficult and this movement is a positive movement because the more prepared student with better test taking attitude and time management skills will be the eventual winner.
Tip to the CAT takers: Revise the basics of Quant. Work on calculation speed in DI. Get your selection and prioritisation right in VA and AR section and CAT is all yours. And remember, whatever time you save from DI and AR will help you get that additional attempt in QA or VA.
Know what is needed: You should have a thorough knowledge of the CAT syllabus before starting the studies. If possible try to get the previous year’s paper to get some ideas about the exam.
Know your strengths and weaknesses: You might have been familiar with the concept of SWOT that is strength,weaknesses, opportunities and threats. You certainly are aware of your strengths and weaknesses and knowing your syllabus will obviously help you realize what you are able to do and what not. Work on the areas needed to be overcome and improve in what you are good at. Work on the tricks to avoid the threats.
Time Management: Instead of wasting time in thinking and getting confused it is better to prepare a routine for your studies and follow that regularly for cracking CAT 2013 exams. Self study is also very important apart from attending the coaching classes and tutorials.
Choose right tutorials: Enroll in reputed coaching centers which have had produced successful candidates in the past.Though succeeding in exams depends more upon the capability of the student, a lot more depends upon right guidance and quality study materials.
Mock Test:Try to attempt as many mock tests as you canfor passing out CAT 2013. The more you go for the mock tests the more you become used to the CAT environment.
Keep an eye on current affairs: Don’t take your present knowledge for granted. There are many developments and changes going on and around which can be asked in your exam.
