How To Score Well In CAT

Author : anirban d

CAT- the common admission test is one of the most fearsome entrance tests, that the management students need to take and are worried about. The students clearing CAT are determined to become a part of few of the most renowned management institutions of the country. The students have to work very hard to achieve their target of taking admission in one of the Indian Institute of Management. It is the dream of every student, but it’s not that easy to accomplish. The test is very difficult and tests the students on various parameters, to check their eligibility for admission to such a prestigious institution. The test is scientifically designed and ensures accuracy and fairness in the exam. The students start preparing for the common entrance test, from years before they take the actual exam. In fact, students also take classes, to train themselves in various subjects. There are many coaching centres, which trains the students in their respective fields and help them to get admission in good MBA colleges.

Following are few of the steps, which can help a student score well in his CAT entrance test:

The students need to prepare hard and keep on taking mock tests. Doing practise makes it possible for the students to be able to get off with the fear of exam. The students should be aware of all the concepts and the methods, which are supposed to be used in the exams and which makes it easier for the student to solve the questions.

The commencement of online tests, has made it bit difficult for the students to take the exams easily and complete the test on time. The students are advised to practise tests online, so that they form a habit of reading faster over the net and can make correct and apt sense of what is written. It’s quite difficult to interpret images and graphs formed on the screen, therefore the students need to make themselves comfortable using the mouse and the keyboard, for solving the questions.

The students should not at all feel nervous and should always make it a habit to be cool and calm while taking exam. They should try and concentrate in their exam, while taking the exam, rather than looking here and there and should give the maximum amount of productivity at the time of exam.

The students should form a strategy, as in how they will proceed step by step. The question paper should be solved according to the set plan and is sure to help the student to maintain a free and a positive flow while answering the questions. The test patterns followed in the question papers of the last few years, should be followed by the students and they should keep an eye on the changing patterns or on any changes made in regard to the CAT.

The practise of the exams should also be done online, to develop smoothness with the keyboard and mouse. This ways, it would be easier for the student to answer the questions at the time of exam.

Apart from all the above mentioned steps, which largely apply on the new format of the CAT exam, the students should be confident and should always have full preparation for the exam. The parents of the students should not put any pressure on them and should always give them the space to take tests in their own comfortable zone. The students appearing for CAT, are also required to have great communication skills. They should be able to analyse and interpret things successfully and come up with fruitful results by scoring high in CAT and securing a safe position in one of the IIM’s.
