Scoring Areas in CAT

CAT is just 3 months away. It is a tough exam and is infamous for throwing surprises every year.Even though the CAT syllabus remains pretty consistent but still listing down a selected few topics as the scoring areas will be a little unjustified.

MBA Rendezvous gives you the mantra of devising the scoring areas:

CAT Exam

How Do I Find My Strength?

Ask any 99 or 100 percentiler and they will tell you,”Practice by writing Mock Tests”. The key to crack CAT 2024 exam is not only by having strong and clear concepts but by managing to answer at least 75 to 80% of questions in each section with almost 90% accuracy or above.

Write mocks to understand which areas are you comfortable in. If you are good at solving graphs or Caselets, DI would be your scoring area. If you have good command over English and can read fast, VARC could be your scoring section. Practicing is the key to enhance your chances of scoring well in the areas of your interest. The main intention is to polish the areas you are good at and make sure you turn them in to your score boosters.

Where Do I Start From?

  1. Diligently write mock tests and analyse your paper to understand what your strong points are and keep practicing.
  2. With practice you can make the VARC as your scoring section. Questions are para jumbles, Summary and odd one out can be easily mastered with practice. They are a mix of MCQs and Non MCQs. And anytime you have a Non MCQ you have scope of making an intelligent guess in case it’s a little tough to crack without the fear of negative marks.
  3. In Quant section, usually 50% questions are in the easy to moderate category which you should be aiming to attempt. These topics are Geometry topics like circles and triangles, Arithmetic topics on Number System, TSD, TW, Percentages, Ratio & Proportion and Profit Loss. There are around 8 to 9 questions from dirty quant such as Progressions, P&C, Logs, Modulus, Maxima Minima, and Functions & Graphs. These areas are scoring because they are tough and hence the corresponding questions will not be that tough. Also, the questions from the Number System such as HCF, LCM, and Remainder Theorem will be only 4-5 but are scoring areas. In CAT, every mark counts.
  4. DILR is the toughest section. It largely depends on what kind of sets you like solving- Traditional/Regular DILR sets, Modern Day DILR set and Games Based questions. It is important to read through the set and understand the thought process behind it. Once solved, you can answer the related questions easily. So to score well in this section, it is important for you to choose the set wisely.
