CAT 2014: Expert advice on revising Quant in the last hour

Published : Thursday, 13 November, 2014 11:33 AM 
 
For all CAT 2014 aspirants who are appearing in exam on coming 16th & 22nd November 2014, it is very usual to get panicked before the exams, especially in the last hours of the preparation. But, it is important to maintain your cool during this period because this time is very vital.
 
Here is expert advice and few tips to follow in this scenario for Quantitative Section:
  • Revise the basic formulas
Instead of mugging-up hard and complex formulas, you should concentrate on revising basic formulas that are the building blocks of complex formulas.
 
For instance, you should always remember that 1 + 2 + 3 + … = n(n+1)/2 or (a+b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2. 
  • No new formula
You should avoid getting into any new formula thatyou have not heard of. It will only slow down your pace.
  • Revise your mock papers
Go through all the mocks that you have solved. Try solving the sums in different ways that you have solved easily in the first goand those which you were not able to solve, have a look at their solution and try to gain insight about how to solve them with the formulas you already are well aware of.

  • Don’t follow explanatory answers blindly
You should try to solve questions on your own, rather than following explanatory answers because that will confuse you with the formulas you know and the one they will use to solve the same question. 
  •  Solve previous CAT papers
This is also a good way of gaining confidence. You should have a look at the questions you can solve on own and refer the rest from the explanatory answers and, as explained before, don’t follow them blindly but, just analyze where were you falling short from solving the questions.
  • Continue giving Mocks
This is the time when mocks will actually help you understand what area of questions you should start with and which one to avoid for saving time.
 
 
Important 
 
You should follow above tips but, always remember that CAT does not repeat questions. However, by solving these previous year and mock questions you will have a better idea about the methods used to solve CAT sums which will improve with every revised session.
