Preparation Strategy

Published : Friday, 11 July, 2014 03:23 PM
MBA aspirants, who are appearing in forthcoming MAT on 7th September, 2014 must adhere to schedule in a very strategic manner for oneself.
Doing so will help the aspirant to follow a specific plan during the exam day and discipline oneself accordingly especially now when there isn't much time left for the exam. 
It does not matter what time of the day/night one decides to revise for the exam, they must bear in mind that it is not worth spending time studying too much for long hours, especially over weak area in this last moment.
If they do so, they won’t be able to complete their revision in the given time period because of fatigue. A break now and then will do them a lot of good. The important thing to remember is that one should be mentally fresh and ready to absorb at that point of time.
Remember, quality is always better than quantity. Still, 6 hours per day is necessary in these remaining days to achieve a 95 plus percentile (700+ composite score).
The candidate should read newspapers and magazines, watch English language news channels to avoid monotony and thus, also prepare for general awareness section.
