All those who are planning to appear for the CAT 2021 exam which is scheduled to be conducted on November 28, must be now well versed with the CAT syllabus and also with the changed exam pattern. Hence, in order to crack the CAT 2021 exam by preparing in the next 45 days, candidates should first and foremost brush up on the basics so that they feel more confident.

Once the individual is well versed with the basics of the CAT exam, he or she should then move towards using the advanced study material so that they can apply whatever they have learned. Application of the knowledge acquired in the right way is essential during the course of the CAT 2021 preparation. While studying from the advanced study material what is important is that one does not rush to complete the topics, rather the focus should be on understanding.
Remember in the CAT exam, one should aim at answering the questions in CAT correctly, rather than attempting all the questions without being sure about the answers of fifty percent of them. Beating about the bush will not work in the CAT exam. Hence to crack the CAT exam in 45 days, make sure you are thorough with the advanced study material in the next two weeks.
Take the CAT 2021 Mock Tests
After being well versed with the basics and the advanced study material, now is the time to assess one’s preparation by taking the CAT mock tests. Hence, the candidates must now regularly take CAT mock tests, the first section-wise and then full-fledged mock tests. Ensure that you are not careless while taking the mock test as it will prove to be detrimental on the day of the exam.

Avoid unwanted discussions with friends
One very important thing that must be kept in mind while only 45 days are left for CAT preparation is to have an unwanted discussion with friends as it might cause distractions. Each individual is different and their style of studying and grasping things is different. So if one’s friend has studied more than the other, it should not lead to anxiety or nervousness.
Remember that at this stage of CAT preparation what is important is that one recalls whatever they have studied till now and remain confident about it.
CAT 2021: How to crack exam by preparing in 45 Days - Evade Social Media
Though social media has become a good source of information, however, one must avoid it during the fag end of preparation as it is sometimes intoxicating. Suppose one finds something interesting while browsing through the social media sites which are not part of one’s CAT preparation, then he might waste his or her time in watching it or analyzing it. This can lead to distraction and one might not get back their focus.
Remember, now is the time to remain calm and composed as whatever you have studied till now is done and now one cannot really turn around the table. Hence do not unnecessarily take stress about what one has not studied. Also, remember that now is the time to feel confident about whatever one has studied and not think about what they have not studied.
No need to ponder over the result of CAT or what will happen on the day of the exam. In order to beat stress, candidates can mediate regularly, pursue their hobbies which can relax their mind, and exercise regularly as it helps in proper blood circulation to not only the brain but also to the body.
