With exactly one month for CAT 2019, aspirants are understandably in a flap on how to ramp up their scores. CAT is an aptitude test, not a test of knowledge per se so the usual technique of preparing for college exams or board exams just won’t fly. If a student understands this nuance, it will help in laying out a road map for the next 50 odd days. CAT tests aspirants on 10th/11thstandard English, Mathematics, Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation. However, to expect an IIM entrance test to be a breeze is naivety.
This preparation should include the time set aside for strengthening concepts, working out exercises in weak concepts and take regular sectional test and mock tests. Practising problems of various iterations will expose aspirants to different permutations so that they aren’t caught flat footed by the canny exam setters.
The most important part of the planning is to determine how many hours can be set aside exclusively for CAT preparation. A thumb rule is that around 6 hours a day will give you 300+ hours to be battle ready for Nov 24.
