“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.” – Robert Collier
If you really want to crack CAT the best way is to prepare a study plan which will help you to get into IIMs
Prepare a Study Plan:
Whether you are a working professional or a fresher, make it a habit to study for at least 2 hours a day. As a working professional, it would be difficult for you to balance your studies with your work but it’s not impossible. All you need to do is to make a plan on how you will manage things. Those who are either students or not employed should consider themselves lucky as they can spend more time on their studies.
If you ask any of the CAT toppers what is the most important part of their preparation the most common answer you’ll get – MOCK TEST. Mocks play a very important role in your preparation you’ll get familiar with the exam pattern revising concepts, and formulas and at the same time you’ll also improve your speech and accuracy.
Consolidate your basics
Start working on your fundamentals. Devote your initial days only to your basics. Start with vocabulary, formulas, mathematical concepts, puzzles, or all the areas where you don’t feel confident enough. Make your weakness your strength. Generally, Non- engineering students are good with verbal parts whereas engineering students are more familiar with quants. Working on your weak area is the key to scoring good marks in the exam.
Evaluate your performance
Do a quick SWOT analysis to know your Strength and weaknesses so that you can work on those areas. This will help you to work more on the weak areas and also try to convert them into your strength. Keep a track of your mock scores and analyze whether your score is improving or not. This will help you to identify the problem and make sure you keep practicing in such areas.
‘Practice makes a man perfect is, to succeed in life in any particular field or subject, one needs to practice regularly with full commitment and planned strategies. So, instead of studying at the last moment why not practice daily. After SWOT analysis you are aware of your weak and strong areas. CAT is a competitive exam so speed plays a very important role so make sure you practice mock to get an idea on how to deal with the exam.
Hope these strategies will help you
All the best!
