Did you score less than expected in your CAT exam last year?
Or does your sectional cut off doesn’t comply with cut offs of top institutes.
Or are you surprised because you always scored 99% in CAT Mock Tests but couldn’t score the desired marks in actual exam?
As you know this year 1800+ among 2 lakhs candidates who gave the CAT who scored 98%ile. It doesn’t mean you don’t have the caliber to score 99%tile. The reason why they scored 99% ile is they did not work harder but they worked smarter. One of the hardest parts of life, is whether to walk away or try harder. It’s always easy to give up than trying harder. You might regret that 20 years later that you gave up on CAT and couldn’t end up being in that coveted seat of top management college. Or maybe when you couldn’t get that promotion because your colleague is an IIM grad. Keep in mind, there is always a next time. And ALSO there is no limit to the number of times you could give CAT.
Let’s see what probably could have happened during preparation.
You Love Quant’s, But Verbal Gives You A Headache: Let me remind you that it is going to take you to love every topic that you come across. Be it politics, current aware, science, tax or nonfiction. Verbal is the trickiest part of CAT and reading comprehension is the hardest of all to crack.
The same goes for the fact that you like the verbal section more than quant’s or logical reasoning. Then you need to focus your preparation to quant’s.
Proper Time Management: A class 10th standard student could have scored 99%ile with a little preparation in CAT, if they took it without the time limit. To be an effective manager, you need to master the art of time management. As CAT is the preliminary benchmark, the IIMs have cleverly induced the time limit to the sections of the test. Speed and accuracy is the key for the same.
Correct Timing Of Preparation: It might be possible that you didn’t start your preparation at the right time. Or even if you started at the right time, the strategy to prepare may not be adequate. You ended up being stressed and couldn’t cover all the topics for CAT. All these factors could have lead you to be unsuccessful in scoring the desired marks.
Review And Every Mock Test To Analyse and Work On Your Weakness: Revision is vital for any test preparation. Revision and mock tests would give you a clear picture on the areas of your weakness. the more the attempt, the better.
