Only Tough nuts on prep can get in to 95-100 percentile bracket

The CAT exam for admission to the elite institutes, such as IIMs is considered to be among the toughest entrance exams to crack in the country. To get into the IIMs and other premier institutions, one needs to have steely resolve to stay dedicated towards the goal inspite of the taxing schedule and various hurdles. 

The goal for every aspirant writing the entrance exam is to get into the best MBA institutes in the country, such as IIM, FMS and XLRI and to achieve that, the aspirant needs to get into the top most percentile bracket, beyond 90-95 percentile and, in fact, as close to 100 percentile as possible. For this to happen, the aspirant must be a tough nut who never compromises on achieving success and perfection.

1. Tough Exam

MBA entrance exams, CAT in particular, are among the toughest exams to crack in the country. With a diverse range of areas from which a mix of moderate and difficult questions are asked, these exams require thorough knowledge of every section of the exam and the various types of possible questions. Also, what makes exams like CAT tough, is the number of people who write these exams. This has a direct bearing on the toughness of the exam as well as the evaluation, which is relative, which means that you may have done well individually but others in the group may have done better than you, so your percentile will depend on the how you fare vis-à-vis others in the group. Only candidates who are tough mentally and physically to meet the challenges of the exam, can aim for an excellent percentile.

2. Gruelling preparation

A tough challenge calls for gruelling preparation. Aspirants who aim for the top percentiles have to ensure that they follow a strict routine, in which they acquire the requisite knowledge pertaining to the syllabus. The strict routine can often be compromised due to various reasons, it is here that the toughness of the candidate will be come into the fore. Single- minded determination to achieve the dream of studying in the best institute of the country is what drives the aspirants to put in all his/ her effort. The demand of preparation is intense, and therefore, require the candidate to be firm and follow the schedule rigorously.

3. Pressure

A lot is at stake for all the people who write the entrance exam. Their hard work throughout the year will determine the level of their success in the entrance examination. Along with their own pressure, there is a lot of external pressures too on the candidates, for instance, pressure from the parents, relatives, peer pressure, pressure to stay ahead of competition, pressure to establish oneself. The people aiming for 95 or beyond percentile need to learn to absorb pressure and give their best under pressure within the stipulated time. Such an intense environment can only be handled by people who are tough nuts and remain unfazed by criticism or praise.

A person wanting to come in the top percentile brackets cannot afford to slip or take chances. Mental and physical toughness contribute in providing the candidate with the right environment that can help him/ her become successful.
