    It depends upon individuals as to how soon they decide to take mock tests or how frequently they attempt such tests. Some prefer taking the tests as soon as they start prepping for CAT while others wait until the preparation of basic concepts is over. However, most CAT veterans vouch for regular practice through mock test series as these are one sure-fire way to master time management skills.

    The mock tests are specially designed to cover questions across sections based on CAT Exam Pattern trends and help aspirants to evaluate progress, identify sectional/topical strengths and weaknesses. The mock test is also useful tools to understand the expected real situation and how to manage time to answer maximum questions accurately. The mocks will also help in developing the right test-taking strategy through a proper analysis of their performance in each mock. Serious Test takers can benefit from mock tests by learning new techniques to solving questions and useful ways of applying the basic concepts.

    Taking numerous mock tests will not help you unless you make the effort to analyze your performance and score at the end of each test. Candidates are advised to take time to analyze their overall as well as sectional scores and percentiles. They should continuously track their key performance parameters, sectional and overall percentile scores and attempt to find weak points, if any, in order to improve performance. CAT aspirants should bear in mind that in competitive exam like CAT, more than absolute scores, relative scores are of far more important as they indicate a candidate’s real standing among an entire lot of test takers.
