CAT Exam

 

The Indian Institutes of Management will conduct a computer-based Common Admission Test 2024 (CAT 2024) on November in three sessions. Detailed information on CAT 2024 may be obtained from the CAT website. CAT 2024 is a prerequisite for admission to various Post Graduate and Fellow/Doctorate programmes of IIMs. CAT 2024 scores are allowed to be used by listed non-IIM member institutions. A list of such institutions is provided on the CAT website. IIMs have no role in the selection process of non-IIM institutions.

 

CAT 2024 Mock Test

A mock test is the only approach to evaluating your current level of preparation and re-strategize your future plan of preparation. It also makes you familiar with the kind of questions that might appear within the real MBA entrance examination. If you solve the past 5 year’s questions of CAT, you have got excessive chances to crack the exam with a terrific percentile. Mock assessments inform candidates on which topics they have already mastered. They can then direct their learning to other areas and spend the minimum time on the subjects they already have mastered.

IIMCAT will release the official CAT mock test a fortnight before the exam. Aspirants can use their login credentials to take the CAT mock test on the exam website at any time and for an unlimited number of times.

Solving Sample Papers and Mock Tests

The completion of practice questions and online mock exams are crucial components of CAT exam preparation. During their study period, candidates must complete 40 to 50 CAT mock examinations. While October is when candidates should begin taking full-fledged mock examinations, experts advise that for improved concept clarity, applicants should solve topic-by-topic sample problems as they study. Please continue reading for a list of some important CAT mock test-related points.

  • Try to answer each question about the subject you are studying at least three times. You will be able to comprehend the question and its logic on the first attempt, solve it correctly on the second attempt, and solve it correctly on the third attempt in less time.

  • Once you finish the syllabus, you can start working on the online CAT practice exams to avoid getting stuck on a particular subject.

  • Your goal in taking CAT practice tests should be to improve your speed and accuracy when answering the three-hour-long question paper. Boost your endurance so you can sit through the three hours of the exam without being emotionally or physically worn out.

  • Analyze your performance and see where you need to improve after finishing each mock exam or sample paper. You should solve at least one mock exam every day to get habituated from the exam pattern.

  • If the outcome of your first mock is not as you expected, don’t be disheartened. Instead, keep identifying loopholes and addressing them. The only approach to succeed on the CAT or other MBA admission exams is by practicing many mocks and increasing your accuracy in them.

  • Since the CAT exam has a subsection time limit, practicing sectional mock examinations is vital to learn and effectively managing time.
