Mocks can never be ignored when preparing for CAT. Mocks are very crucial in terms of preparing for the exam. While mock tests and success cannot be proportionalized but the CAT mock tests with ideal frequency will help you build confidence, get a gap analysis and start working on them.
So, how do we analyze mock tests?
We need to have a benchmark to analyze the mock test. Benchmark helps you set a target to get on with the tests. The target will motivate to practice more effectively. These benchmarks will help you perform consistently in your future mock tests as well. The areas where you are weak, you can pick that area and try for improvement, work on the topics and them aim to achieve those weak topics in the next mock test you take.
With this process, each mock test is going to help you increase your accuracy in the topics where you are weak and will provide the detailed version of the topics where you lag behind. This table will help in depth analysis of your weak areas in a well-versed manner.
You may also create an excel sheet that could contain the parameters like this:
|Sections||Mock Test 1||Analysis||Mock Test 2||Analysis|
|Marks obtained||( % Attempts, % Accuracy,
|Marks obtained||(% Attempts, % Accuracy,
|Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation|
Taking regular mock test will also help prepare your body to adapt at the same set of time where you are possibly taking your CAT exam.
SWOT stands for Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threats.
