Things to do in the Last Days of CAT Preparation
By now, you must have gone through all the essential topics and practiced the corresponding
questions. However, CAT does carry a few surprises every time, which is why you need to take the exam with an open mind. The following points will help you cope with the uncertainties and crack the exam with a high score:
Keep it Simple- Many great performers tend to buckle under great pressure. So, it is best to keep things easy and not overdo any topic or type of questions at this stage.
Avoid Venturing into the Unknown- Unless a new topic is extremely crucial and carries a high weightage in CAT, you must avoid it. Learning anything at this time will just result in confusion on the final day.
Skim through the familiars- If you want to revise the formulas and tricks, do so through your pre-pared notes or flashcards. But refrain from spending too much time revising on daily basis.
Let go of discipline- No doubt, you would have followed a strict study schedule throughout your CAT preparation. Yet, the same won’t help in the last few days. So, let go of your schedule and flow a little with your heart – infuse more of play and less of study in the final stage.
Partake in Leisure Activities- Since 3-6 months, you have been spending most of your time, energy, and focus preparing for the CAT exam. Now is the time to lighten up and have some leisure time. So, spend some time in things that you like and enjoy – watch your favourite movie, listen to your favourite song, dance to your favourite beats, reread your favourite book, etc. In other words, you need to defocus a little to stay completely focused on the D-day. With such fun activities, you get to relax your mind and regain the required clarity.
Stay healthy- Aspirants often tend to fall sick due to anxiety or lack of sleep in the last days to exam. So, it is important that you take good care of your health, get proper sleep, exercise and eat a well-balanced diet.
Sort out the necessary documents- As you know, you need to carry an admit card and ID proofs to the exam centre. It is always better to get all these documents ready beforehand, so you won’t panic on the exam day.

Mock tests provide a precise picture of the actual exam pattern, marking, and difficulty level. However, remember that the actual exam questions are bound to be a little different. So, it is good to take regular mock tests (preferably once every week), yet stay prepared for a bit of surprise. The best part about mocks is that they let you plan your exam-attempting strategy.
How many Sample Papers to solve in the last days of CAT preparation?
Ideally, you should avoid solving any sample or previous year CAT paper in the last week. This is because their results tend to give a fluctuation impression, which can impact your final performance. However, if you really need to take a mock to regain your confidence, try one at least 5-8 days before the exam day.

CAT 2021 - Important Topics for Last Days
While you must not touch upon any new topics in the remaining 7 days, you must stay focused on the critical ones. As for the Quant section, the highest weightage belongs to arithmetic-based topics and the related application-based questions. The next important part is that of geometry and algebra.
In the case of the DI segment, you will need to use the arithmetic concepts while dealing with questions based on graphs, charts and tables. The reasoning part comprises the common logic-based puzzles, Venn diagrams, syllogisms, analogies, etc.
The RC passages are generally fetched from the economy, business, art, science or humanities-based area. The remaining verbal ability questions evaluate the basic tenets of grammar and check your vocabulary in different forms.

If you are just beginning with the CAT preparation you should know that one cannot take mastery in the Varc portion in just one month or two, you have to devote at least 1 hour at the beginning of your preparation to the Varc. You should know the syllabus, exam pattern because people generally start their preparation randomly and after some time find themselves unable to score well in mocks which is why it becomes important for you to do your preparation strategically from the beginning itself. You have to consider all the sections equal because even if you miss the sectional cutoff of one of the sections by 1 percentile you won't be able to get a call.
