I am not good in VARC section. how will I improve.

ayush mishra 25th Feb, 2020
Swapnil, VARC section of the CAT is regarded as one of the most scoring sections of the exam but at the same time, it requires a lot of practice, attention and concentration to choose the correct option or to comprehend the text accurately. Here are a few measures which you can take to improve your scores in VARC section:-

READ NEWSPAPERS DAILY as it not only prepares you for the WAT and GD/PI but also improves your vocabulary.

READ A LOT OF NOVELS, preferably FICTIONS as it improves your reading speed and helps you in understanding part of the long texts also

TRY TO BUILD AN ABILITY TO WRITE OR PREDICT THE ANSWERS even if you cannot understand the passage properly, which may help you in the TITAs

TRY TO LEARN ATLEAST 3-4 NEW WORDS EVERYDAY AND MAKE NOTES OF THEIR MEANINGS

TRY TO SOLVE A LOT OF MOCKS AS VARC SECTION IS A SECTION WHICH DESERVES A LOT OF PRACTICE apart from your understanding of text,of course

GO THROUGH THE PREVIOUS YEAR PAPERS AS WELL AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE TYPES OF QUESTIONS ASKED IN VARC.
