How to ace VA ( Verbal Ability) in CAT 2016? 

Verbal Ability will be part of section in  CAT 2016 and being crucial, you need to understand main components of VA.

With a growing emphasis on communication, soft skills and language skills in today’s world, the importance of Verbal Ability has increased all the more. It forms a significant part of entrance examinations across disciplines and professions. It might appear that sailing through the Verbal Ability section would be easy, since it comprises questions which we are used to encountering in some form or the other from our school days. While this may hold true for exceptional cases, a majority of us need to continuously work on our language skills and when it’s for an exam, the stakes are raised.

The good news is that one can work towards scoring well in the Verbal Ability section.

1. Develop interest

The first step to scoring well in the verbal ability is to develop an interest in the language. A language comprises various rules and technicalities. It requires consistent effort on the part of the candidate. The task becomes easier if the candidate develops an interest in learning the language and mastering it. 

2. Read

Reading helps improve language skills. The more you read, the better equipped you will be to deal with questions related to the language. Through extensive reading, you encounter the various ways in which language can be used along with new words, idioms, phrases and other things. 

3. Increase vocabulary

One of the basic requirements to ace the Verbal Ability section is build your vocabulary. Since a lot of questions that make up the VA section are built around words, acquainting yourself with a wide range of words is an inevitable part of preparing for the VA. There are various sources through which you can increase your vocabulary. Some of the ways are through newspapers, magazines, dictionaries, thesaurus and so on. 

4. Cover specific areas

It might not be possible to cover all the areas of language learning for the purpose of the entrance examination, therefore, focus on key areas which will help you ace the VA. Key areas include synonyms, antonyms, word meanings, idioms, basic grammar, such as articles, prepositions, adjectives, adverbs and so on. This approach can be of help to those students, in particular, who don’t have time to master the language thoroughly or who want to brush up their existing knowledge.

5. Practice

Learning the rules of grammar or memorising new words will be of little help if you don’t practice regularly and implement whatever you learn. It is not possible to memorise words and be able to retain them for longer periods, if you do not use them in your conversations regularly, as words will quietly slip to the passive vocabulary. Similarly, the rules of grammar can only be retained if you practice questions, observe the ways in which they are used, and make a conscious effort to make them a part of your daily conversations.

Verbal Ability constitutes a significant part of the MBA entrance. A candidate has to score well in this section to harbour any hopes of cracking the entrance. Thus, the candidates should work on improving their verbal skills.
