Last Minute Preparation Tips for LR
An important thing you should realise while preparing is that when you are taking the CMAT, the entire potential of your brain will not be available to you. Your mind will be in such a state that you might be forced to even check 2+2.
So remember, the basic principle is that if in your normal day to day preparation, you can do something by using an excess of 80 to 90 per cent of your mind’s capacity, you would not be able to execute that thinking in the CMAT paper.
What you need to realise is that unless you train yourself to be able to execute your thought processes under intense unrelenting pressure, any preparation for the CMAT, by and large, makes no sense.
What you need to realise is that solving a question in a tranquil study room is very different from the experience of solving a question inside the pressure-cooker atmosphere of CMAT - a variable that is only likely to become more in the context of a computer based examination.
So 'handling pressure' is one of the most crucial variables that you need to factor in while preparing for CMAT. Obviously, the most important question remains, "How can I handle pressure well?"
The CMAT paper is designed keeping in mind a lot of factors that coaching classes cannot even consider while designing their mock test papers.
For instance, no question asked in the data interpretation (DI) and logical reasoning (LR) section of the CMAT requires more than six to eight steps for solving.
However, some questions in the mock papers require as long as 20 steps to be solved.
