Make a section-wise preparation strategy for CAT 2020
After going through the syllabus thoroughly, the candidates need to start section-wise preparation. Here are some tips that are given below for the same.
Preparation for Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension (VARC) section - This section broadly consists of questions based on Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Verbal Reasoning. Each area in this section needs a different approach to preparation. To prepare for the reading comprehension part, students should inculcate the habit of reading newspapers and novels, for Vocab and Grammar, part one should go for a good book for regular practice of both and should practice lots of questions based on verbal reasoning.
Preparation of Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR) section - This section in the CAT is there to check one's analytical skills and logical rationale or reasoning. To deal with this section it is so much important to understand and clear the basic concepts. DILR section consisted of the questions based on Line charts, Pie chart, Bar charts and Mixed charts. Candidates should regularly practice lots of questions based on the mentioned topics to have a strong grasp and better concept clarification.
Preparation for Quantitative Aptitude section - This section requires lots of practice and excellent command on the formulas, concepts and theorems as it is the section in which questions are asked from Maths topics only. Usually, candidates find this section the most rigorous one among all but having strong command on basic concepts of the topics would lead you to have an edge over others. This section includes questions based on Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Mensuration. Strong mental calculation serves a lot to cater this section.
Strengthen your Fundamentals and Concepts
While you prepare for each section, make sure that you proceed towards learning the basic concepts first and then moving towards more difficult ones. If your basics are strong then you will be able to do well as you will be able to solve the most complex problems without much difficulty. You should build your preparation on the principle that a durable house is one which has a strong foundation and will be able to survive in all kinds of adverse situations. Similar is the case with CAT preparation. With regards to reading comprehension, start with reading books written in simple language and after each paragraph or completion of a chapter comprehend what was mentioned in it. In the initial stages, it might be difficult, but later on, it will prove beneficial. Similarly with quantitative ability, first be thorough with your class ninth and tenth maths and after knowing the formulae and their applications in easy questions move onto the more difficult ones.
It is normally stated that time lost never returns. Therefore, it is important that the candidates divide the time that they have in hand as they prepare for CAT and aim to crack it in the first attempt itself. An average to the brilliant student might easily prepare for CAT in six months. Therefore, going by the past years' trends, one can assume that questions will be asked from three sections. Hence out of the six months, candidates must try to finish all the three sections within a span of three to four months and keep the last two months before the exam to take the mock tests as they will be able to know the type of questions that are asked in the entrance exam.
Importance of CAT mock tests
Mock tests are elixir to the preparation of any entrance exam. Candidates must take two to three mock tests in a week and should analyze them thoroughly to make their SWOT analysis. While taking the CAT mock tests, candidates must ensure that they adhere to the sectional and overall time limit.
