Mock test acquaintances with the D-Day scenario
Evaluating your current level of preparation and focusing on your future preparation plan- Mock tests are one of the most effective methods by which candidates can evaluate their preparation level and performance. For improved results, it is suggested by CAT 2019 toppers as well as experts that all candidates must give mock tests. Candidates who register for CAT or any competitive exam have two options i.e. either take the mock test before starting the preparation (to know where they stand) or take the mock test after completing the syllabus (to know how much they have prepared). Using either method is good, but moving with both (pre and post mocks) is the best option that candidates can avail for themselves. As per expert Ankur Jain, candidates should focus on mock tests (AIMCATs and SAMCATs), in the last month, analyse them and study and prepare for the same as per the deficiencies revealed in the test.
Know time management techniques- In the IIM entrance exam, due to time limit pressure as well as negative marking scheme, it becomes difficult to answer questions with 100 percent or nearly 100 percent accuracy as it may lead to a drop in the score and percentile. Time management in CAT is considered to be the fourth section by CAT toppers as they have to answer questions within sectional time limits. The one who understands the importance of time can achieve anything in life. One of the time management theories which can be applied to CAT is the “ABC System theory” that defines that in order to use time more effectively, one needs to prioritize on the tasks to be done or need to be undertaken.
Learn tricks and shortcuts- Candidates who join coaching institutes get to know very well about the hacks of solving challenging and demanding questions. For those of you who think of cracking CAT without coaching must try to contact friends/fellows who can assist in knowing shortcut methods and tricks of solving questions. Nowadays so many online tutorials are available for beginners that are helpful and are free of cost. Mock test of CAT 2020 simulates many variations in terms of questions that CAT could come up with and thus helps candidates to optimize accuracy and speed for the exam. To understand and learn hacks, one can also go for previous year questions papers of CAT.
Mock test acquaintances with the D-Day scenario
CAT 2020 mock tests are aimed at familiarizing candidates with the questions that could come up in the exam. Complete exam day scenarios are created, 40 minute sectional time limits available options, and so on. And if candidates are lucky enough to find similar questions on the exam day as they solved in one of the CAT 2020 mocks then that would be the greatest thing. The more CAT mock tests you appear for, the better are your chances to finish CAT 2020 with accuracy and on time.
Once you are aware of where you are lacking in terms of preparation, you can modify your strategy. Ideally, the post mock test of CAT 2020 should be taken around 8 weeks before the D-Day. As per exam dates of CAT 2020, the exam is scheduled to be conducted on November 29 which means candidates should start appearing for post mock test in the last week of August or first week of September.

can a ews category student apply for private medical college? and is the fees same for gen cat. and ews cat. student for private medical college?
The EWS category is an official reservation category that needs to be considered for admission into every college. So college consider EWS category also as other category. You can surely apply for private medical College.
Most of the colleges doesn't have fees as per the reservation. The fees seems to be same for every student. There might be some college that may offer scholarship to reserved category students .
Hope that helps.
