Focus on your system only
Sometimes, it happens out of curiosity, aspirants try to look around at others to see how they are dealing with the exam because of which they not only lose their own time but also focus. Hence, it is advisable that one should focus on his or her system only.
Understand the game of time
Along with the completion of the exam, there is one more challenge that faces and that is to complete the given section within the stipulated time as there is no coming back to the section when one has already completed it. So, candidates, while attempting the paper must understand the game of time and how they are going to manage the same. Therefore this is another error to avoid on exam day of CAT 2020.
Do not get stuck on a difficult question
Sometimes, candidates invest so much of their time on a single question and expect that they will get the right answer but they end up losing time only. Therefore it is suggested that if one is investing the time more than required, on a question, they should leave that question right there and move onto answering the one which is more easy.
Read questions carefully
Before attempting the question, candidates must read the question carefully. It has been seen among the candidates that either they do not read the questions carefully or because of over excitement for attempting it, they have the tendency to skip a particular part, thereby changing the complete meaning. So, to avoid this error, aspirants should keep in mind that they have to read between the lines when attending the paper in order to score more.
There are very minimal cases and chances where ‘guesswork’ works. Though, candidates can go for eliminating the options to get the right option but should strictly avoid the guess work in the exam as there are very rare chances of getting the guessed choice correct. It would be the biggest error among all the errors made by the students while taking the exam. This error does not take place by mistake but is deliberately committed by the candidates.
Stay cool and calm and don’t panic
One should stay composed, cool and calm and should not get panic throughout the hours of examination because the moment you start getting panic, you start losing your focus which makes you want to go out of the track. So, it is recommended that one should calmly deal with the exam even if the major part of the paper is difficult to understand.
