What are the Things to Keep in Mind while Preparing for XAT 2019 Exam?

Apart from working on your fundamentals and concepts and going through previous year XAT exam papers, you must write XAT Mock Test.

 

Why is Mock Test Important?

The XAT Mock Test is a replica of what the actual XAT 2019 would look like – pattern-wise. Some advantages of writing the mock tests are:

 

1.    NO Fear of Unknown: Writing a mock helps you familiarise with the exam pattern. You get a good understanding of the number of questions, types of passages or cases that are likely to be asked of you in the actual exam.

 

2.    Practice Makes Everything Perfect: Mocks are an excellent way to practice and get used to the whole exam-type setup.

3.    Strategize and Analyse: By attempting the mock test that technically mimics the actual exam helps you devise strategies to try questions judiciously and wisely. The score will let you analyze and assess where you stand preparation-wise.

 

4.    Master the Time: Writing mocks helps you to manage your time while you attempt the actual XAT exam. Other than the amount of time you spend reading and solving a question, it is imperative to keep in account the time you spend moving back and forth during the exam since it is an online exam. You have options to mark answers and then come back to review and submit them.

 

5.    Be Confident: Your confidence is directly proportional to the number of mocks you write or the questions you solve.

 

What are the Things to Keep in Mind while Writing XAT Mock Test?

Keep the following things in mind while attempting the XAT mock tests:

 

1.    You must read the exam instructions very carefully.

2.    Make sure you have a reliable and uninterrupted internet connection every time you sit to write a mock test.

3.    Stay true to yourself. Avoid copying and pasting questions to find answers online because you might get tempted to do it while writing the mock test.

4.     Try to mimic exam-like scenario and write your mock test where there are no external disturbances.

5.    You can keep a rough paper with yourself, although in the final examination you cannot carry anything apart from you XAT Admit Card and Photo-Id proof.

6.    Analyze your mock test score carefully and try to follow-up on your low scoring areas. Also, use them as an opportunity to find quicker and smarter solutions to already solved questions.

 

Please Note: There are chances that the difficulty level of the mocks is higher or lower than the actual XAT exam. Use mock tests as a tool to analyze and understand what are your strengths and weakness and areas that need improvement.
