How can I prepare for CAT exam in 2 days?
So preparing for the Vibrations paper along with the cumbersome placement processes, made you forget that you had filled the CAT form as well. Now you wonder how to prepare for CAT in just 2 days. We are sorry if you think we have some magic pill that’d make you Byju Raveendran in a couple of days. However, we can give you a few last minute tricks if you haven’t prepared at all-
Formulae- We at BYJU’S insist that CAT preparation should be logic based rather than memory based. However, with just two days to go, you don’t have many windows open. Open the 10th class NCERT and start going through the axioms and formulae given for each chapter. If you are a student at BYJU’S, our study material already provides you with a compiled version of formulae for each topic.
Identifying your strengths- Now, because your CAT preparation foundation is not strong, identify what all topics you are good at. This helps you to skip questions in the CAT exam on their (rather your) merits. This would help you in saving time for topics where your strength lies. Remember Rocky Balboa, if you can’t beat it at speed, beat it at hard-core strength.
Verbal- You won’t become Salman Rushdie in two days, so it s better to leave vocabulary alone. Some topics like Reading Comprehension can be predicted to an extent when it comes to the types of questions asked- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gnH-CNzyxk . Solve as many solved questions as you can and you’d be able to find a pattern. This shall help you pin-point the typical mistakes you make in Verbal.
Typical Questions in CAT previous year question papers– Take out last few years’ question papers and identify typical questions that have a particular way of solving. These questions are often repeated and are easy to solve. Alternatively, you can just watch Byju Sir’s famous CAT pattern workshop lecture from the Tablet where he discusses the shortcut techniques for all typical questions of the CAT exam. Good Luck!
