How To Crack CAT 2024 on the First Attempt?

The Common Admission Test (CAT) is one of the most competitive exams in India with lakhs of students attempting, every year to get into the prestigious Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and top business schools in the country. CAT is also probably the toughest MBA entrance exam in India and is also called the mother of all entrances.

The competition is more intense than ever, as it increases annually. This year, the CAT has witnessed a 30% surge in registrations compared to the previous year. Approximately 3.30 lakh aspirants are vying for MBA admissions, the highest number since CAT’s inception in 1977. One needs a straightforward yet efficient plan as well as the appropriate instructions to successfully achieve their target percentile.

Combining several methods and techniques is necessary to succeed in CAT. Here are some essential CAT preparation pointers to get you there:

  1. Understand the format of the exam: Learn the layout of the CAT exam, including the kinds of questions that are normally asked, how much time can be allocated for different types of questions, and more importantly the scoring methodology.
  2. Creating a Study Plan: Establish a study regimen that works best for you and follow it religiously. Set aside time specifically for each exam section, and make sure you review frequently. Preparing a timetable does help your CAT preparation a long way.
  3. Join Reliable CAT Coaching Classes: To aid in your CAT preparation, enroll with trustworthy CAT Coaching Classes and utilise their study resources such as reference books, class exercises, handouts, topic tests, section tests, and mock tests. The experienced faculty can offer you insightful commentary and performance criticism.
  4. Practice Time Management: The CAT exam places a high value on time management, so become comfortable answering questions quickly. But remember, accuracy comes before speed. So make sure you first master the concepts before solving the questions promptly.
  5. Create test-taking techniques: Learn from your faculty various time management techniques and approaches for answering various questions. Spend an adequate amount of time analysing every question and then develop your test-taking strategy. Remember it will evolve over a period of time.
  6. Keep a Positive Attitude: Throughout your preparation, stay motivated and focused. Have faith in your abilities and potential for success. You won’t get results overnight. You are bound to face stumbling blocks of failure or rather building blocks for success.
  7. Take Regular Pauses: Maintaining a healthy study-life balance and preventing burnout requires taking regular breaks. Do not study for 10-12 hours in a day and then suddenly not study for the next few days. Unwind yourself by socialising, listening to your favourite music, or involving in sports activities.
  8. Consistency is the key: Be consistent in your planning. Make sure you give each section enough time, don’t skip any section or sub-section, and keep practising and revising.
  9. Practice, practice, practice: Finally, take as many mock tests as you can. This will help you gauge your level of preparation, discover your strong and weak areas, and address them. If you are getting good scores in your mocks, you are more likely to succeed in your actual exam and vice-versa. These tests will act as a good mirror of your performance.
