CAT 2022 is slated to be held on November 27th, in three sessions across 150 cities in India. With a little more than a week to the exam, we understand that this might be a nerve-wracking moment for many of you.
There are a few changes in the mode of the test this year. The most important one is that the number of questions in each section (Quant, DILR, VARC) has been reduced to 40 from 60 earlier. Each section has a fixed time limit of 40 minutes and you are no longer allowed to switch from one section to another.
At Endeavor, we can understand where you are coming from and we’ve compiled a few tips to help you perform at your best during the exam. Let us see what they are.
Stick to your test-taking strategy
By this time, we assume you have fine-tuned your test-taking strategy. You will know where your strengths and weaknesses lie. This is not the time to experiment but to build on your confidence. Trust the topics you’ve prepared well and that confidence will spread to other areas too. If you can manage it the little time left, identify a few more areas you can work on and do so. In the CAT, you have to fight for every mark, and a few more marks here and there can make a world of a difference.
Do not compare yourself with others
If your friends, study buddies, or peers are getting more marks than you in the mocks, don’t worry. The only person you should hold a mirror to is yourself. Every person has different strengths and weaknesses, and you will be doing yourself a disservice if you compare yourself with students who are scoring more (or less) than you in the mocks. Such a comparison might give you a false confidence boost or depress you, piling on additional pressure, so avoid it.
Give a few mocks
If you are well prepared, there’s no reason why you can’t give a few more mocks. It will orient you to the mode of the exam, and on the day of the exam, things will go like clockwork. But what works for one may not necessarily work for another. So, if you are not comfortable giving mocks at this last juncture, don’t. Decide what is good for you and do it. Go over your class notes or personal notes and refresh your memory. Nothing beats revision and there is no such thing as too much revision either.
Take care of your health
Many candidates take too much pressure while preparing for the CAT (including other competitive exams), and spoil their health. Some become nervous wrecks and spoil their test-taking ability. They forget that the CAT is just another exam and it is not the end of the world. Performance in the CAT is no indicator of who you are as a person. There will always be more chances, so rather than worrying, try to enjoy the process. Don’t forget to get adequate sleep and eat well.
Be calm and composed during the exam
When you are writing the exam, it is very important to be calm and composed. If you are unable to answer a few questions, it is okay. Just move on to the next ones. When you are giving competitive exams like the CAT, accuracy is as, if not more, important than the number of questions you attempt because there are negative marks for wrong attempts. If you are not composed, you might waver from your strategy, which will affect your final score.
While preparation is paramount, it is how you perform on the day of the test that matters. Everyone is in the same boat as you are and don’t forget, only those who give up on themselves are lost. Remember what your teachers at Endeavor have taught you and best of luck.
