How to remain focused for CAT?
Every year, thousands of students appear for the Common Admission Test, also known as the CAT, to gain admission into business administration programs. Since the examination is extremely competitive in nature, it is important to stay focused during the preparation and while taking the computer-based test.
Before you start preparing for CAT, it is important to gather past years’ exam papers. This way, while practising the questions, you will be aware of the question pattern.
The CAT exam is divided into two sections – Logical Reasoning / Verbal Ability and Data Interpretation / Quantitative Ability. Once you start attempting past years’ questions, you will be aware of your weak points and you should take this opportunity to improve on your problem areas.
Also, while practising past years’ questions, ensure that you do not exceed the time limit of the examination. Many students practise questions without keeping track of the time. This makes them panicky during the actual examination.
Apart from attempting questions that have appeared in previous years, it is important to strengthen your basics. Brush up important Mathematics and English concepts that you learnt in high school or 10+2.
By having a good understanding of the concepts, you will be able to attempt any question during the examination. In addition, keep yourself updated by reading newspapers such as The Hindu and Times of India. This way, you will be able to understand the comprehension passages in CAT quickly.
To ensure that you don’t get distracted while preparing for CAT, come up with a timetable and devote at least 4-5 hours of serious study every day. Even if past years’ questions are challenging, do not lose focus.
Stay motivated and learn from your mistakes so that you don’t repeat them during the actual examination. Make sure that you get plenty of rest the day before your examination. This way, your mind will be alert and you will be able to answer the questions in a composed manner.
Make the most of your preparation by staying focused and passing the exam with flying colours in your first attempt.
