Read the questions again and it is likely that you will be able to recall what you studied during your preparation. Hence one of the biggest mistakes that you should avoid on exam day as you appear for CAT 2019 is not to press the panic button.

Concentration at the time of the exam will prove beneficial if you want to crack CAT 2019. Once you are inside the exam hall, your sole focus should be on your computer screen rather than looking at the other person’s screen. Do not get distracted by what others are doing and it will not yield the desired result. If you look at others and see what they are doing or try to cheat then in such a case, you will end up answering the questions incorrectly and will lose marks.
In vital exams like CAT, there is no scope for silly mistakes. Do not be in a rush to answer the questions. If you have prepared well for the entrance exam, then you will be able to answer the questions with ease. After answering the questions, review your answer once again. This will help you to analyse well if you have answered the question correctly or not. Hence as you prepare for CAT 2019, avoiding silly mistakes should be paramount in your mind as it might jeopardise your chances to crack the exam and apply for admission to the reputed institute.
It is pertinent to read between the lines and have a clear understanding of the instructions as well as the questions. In an endeavour to answer the questions correctly, candidate must read the questions carefully, understand it and then answer it. By doing so, candidates will be able to answer the questions with accuracy.
Those who are appearing in CAT 2019, it is presumed that they are aware about the exam pattern, total number of sections and time allocated for each section. Candidates should focus on attempting each section within stipulated time. But if in case they get stuck on any tricky question, it may consume more than expected time and hence, candidates will not be able to attempt all the questions from the required section. Therefore it is advisable that the candidates do not spend too much time on a particular question. Since there is negative marking, candidates must skip those questions which are tricky and are likely to be answered incorrectly.
Admit card along with valid identity proof is the key to unlock the doors of the examination hall, for any aspirant who is going to appear in CAT 2019. One of the mistakes which need to be avoided at any cost is that candidates must carry with them the CAT admit card along with a valid government recognised identity proof.
It is said that if one does not value time, then the time does not value him or her. Another important mistake which the candidate must avoid at any cost is with regard to arriving late to the office. Therefore, if you are appearing in the morning session, then the candidates are supposed to reach at CAT 2019 exam centre by 7:30 AM and for second session candidates should reach at the test centre by 1 PM. Getting late can put a candidate in trouble so it is important that they should reach the exam centre on time. It is advisable that the candidate should visit the CAT 2019 test centre a day before the exam so that he or she gets an idea about how much time they will take to reach CAT 2019 test centre and accordingly arrange for transport.
Of late all the exam conducting bodies have become very strict with the guidelines that need to be followed by the candidates in order to ensure that the exam is conducted in a fair and transparent manner. Hence, female candidates should ensure that they do not apply Mehendi on their hands. It might create a problem if the attendance is being taken through biometric. Female applicants should not apply mehndi or henna on their fingers and on their palm. If their attendance is not recorded correctly, then they might be asked not to appear in the entrance exam. Hence, they must avoid any such mistakes on the day of the exam.
Wearing shoes is one of the mistakes many students have made earlier on the day of the exam. In CAT 2019 exam, wearing covered shoes are not allowed. One needs to remember that only chappals or sandals are allowed in the CAT examination hall.
Candidates should not wear or carry jewellery or jackets on the day of the exam. They will be asked to take it off and if there is no proper arrangement to keep their belongings then the candidate might be in a soup. Remember, there is no safe place to keep them outside the examination hall. Hence, this is another mistake which candidate should avoid on the day of CAT 2019.
