Make a plan

For example, in a three-month period, one can devote the first month to completing the entire syllabus (revision) and the second month to taking the full and sectional mock tests as well as online test series from various coaching institutions. The following month can be used to evaluate the CAT 2021 preparation.

Month 1  Day (1 – 10) Quantitative Aptitude  Day (10 – 20) Verbal Ability  Day (20 – 30) Logical Reasoning   
Month 2    Day (1 – 8) Quantitative Aptitude  Day (8 – 15) Data InterpretationDay (15 -20) Verbal Ability    Day (20 – 30) Logical Reasoning
Month 3Day (1-30) Memorize important formulae   Revise QA, DILR and, VA according to the syllabus   Attempt mock test every two days   Focusing on improving scores in each test   Revise all the content     

For each topic, candidates in their first and last month of preparation should apply several questions based on diverse patterns and abstain from repeatedly rehearsing the same question. It adds value to your training and makes you more knowledgeable in less time when you practice various sorts of queries.

You need to dedicate sufficient time to the mock tests. The mock exams, whether sectional or full-fledged, build speed and precision. Mock tests can also assist in building large calculation sections, shortcuts, and techniques, such as quantitative ability. These are critical components of the preparation.

The CAT evaluates potential managers’ overall capabilities. CAT is not the type of test to be performed and forgotten.

The examination tests time management and critical reasoning: how well you are with figures and words and how rationally you decide in the least amount of time. CAT 2021 preparation is to maintain our minds and focus on the objective.

Hopefully, this helps you plan the last leg of your CAT preparation.
