    How Toppers study for CAT?

    How Toppers study for CAT Exam?

    All CAT aspirants have their own preparation strategy that they adopt with the hope to get admission in Top B-School in India. In order to crack a national level management exam and to score the right percentile to get a call from IIMs, follow these simple tips given below by the toppers. 

    Time bound practice: One of the major factors that contributes to the CAT being considered as toughest management entrance exams to crack in the country, is the restricted time available to solve the questions in the exam. Although maximum questions asked in CAT are basic in nature, what makes them difficult is the restricted time frame available to the candidates to complete the exam. Therefore, make sure to include time-bound practice sessions as part of your CAT Preparation Strategy. Moreover, make sure to practice this with MCQs and non-MCQs type questions, as it will help you build the right speed at which you should respond to the questions.

    CAT Syllabus Deadlines: The biggest challenge for first time CAT Aspirants is the vast nature of the CAT Syllabus. With the huge syllabus and topics to cover, MBA aspirants have to manage their time as well as to ensure that they complete the entire syllabus to meet the deadlines set by them. Having the deadlines to complete the syllabus and achieve the targets will keep you motivated during the next two months which is the most critical phase of your preparation time.

    Avoid referring to too many Books: There are hundreds of books in the market which claim to be the ultimate guide to crack CAT. But too many books with different concepts always create confusion for the aspirants. Therfore, Toppers recommend that you refer to only two good books on any subject or topic for CAT preparation. But ensure that these two reference books should be able give you all the necessary knowledge about the topics asked in the exam. Check Here Books Recommended for CAT Preparation

    Don’t stick to one topic for long: Another biggest challenge for MBA aspirants is to make the decision of actually skipping a topic if it’s too tough to crack. However, as per the CAT Topper it is a wrong strategy to do. If you are unable to understand a topic during one sitting, wandering over it for even longer will only waste your time. So there you have to take a conscious call of letting the topic go and start on the new one. Therefore, remember the cardinal rule, don’t stick to one topic for long, whether you are able to crack it or not.

    Take Mock Tests and subscribe to test series: Take and subscribe test series offered topic wise on the regular basis. Also Mock tests are the ultimate friend when it comes to CAT MBA Preparation. As it helps you not only to check and practice, but also gives you an insight into what’s actually working in your preparation strategy and helps you to realign the same for the upcoming days.

    Seek Experts Help: CAT is the national level management entrance exam, which essentially means that it is not enough to beat yourself. In order to grap that exclusive seat at IIMs, you need to beat your competitors and therefore the preparation and performance have to be gauged in comparison to others. So talk to experts about your plan and preparation strategy and analyse if there is any way in which you can improve your performance. Mentors, online tutorials will help you find gaps in your strategy and fill them in time to ensure that you outperform others on the exam day.

    Build a Peer study Group: Many aspirants believe in working alone, especially during the final phase of their CAT Preparation i.e. the last two months. During this final phase, one can either completely lose their focus and get insto depression or get over-confident with their preparation strategy. In order to avoid this, work with a motivated set of people who are able to motivate and challenge you to put your best foot forward. So make sure you make a peer study group for CAT preparation, especially if CAT is going to be your first attempt.
