CAT 2011 Last Minute Tips For Preparation & Strategy

I believe lots of engineers here are appearing for CAT 2011.

With just a week to go for the exam, what are your last minute strategies? Please share here.

Here's what toppers have to day about last minute preparation:

Just focus on you preparations. Never compare yourself with some other or get scared if someone is scoring more than you. Don't get disheartened if you get low marks in some particular mock test. Try and complete one round of the entire paper in 1.5 hours or less. Then go back and ensure that you have attempted enough questions in each section so as to clear the sectional cut-offs.
(Deepak Mehta scored a whopping 100 percentile in CAT 2010. He has done his Computer Engineering from BITS Pilani Goa campus. He is a fresher. After getting calls from IIMs and many other top institutes, he chose to join IIM Ahmedabad.)

Now is not the time to study or to mug or learn new topics. Take easy tests which do not demoralize you and understand where you need to work more. Relax and rest as much as you can and time your body schedule such that you are not sleepy or uneasy at the time of test. Trust yourself that you have practiced more than required for the test and do not panic at all.

Keep reading, Keep performing, Keep competing and above like what you are doing and enjoy it because unless you do so, you may never be able to give your 100 per cent. Do your best and leave the rest to god. Best of luck to everybody appearing in CAT 2011.
(Kumar Anubhav did his graduation in Communications and Computer Engineering from LNM Institute of Information Technology (LNMIIT), Jaipur. His hobbies include LAN gaming, basket ball, travelling and music.)

One week before CAT, you should relax and not let the pressure get on you. Study hours should be reduced and mind should be free of all tensions as they reduce the efficiency during the exam. CAT is a test where not only the speed and accuracy are tested, but also question selection, pressure handling and decision making are tested. If the set is easy, that means one has to attempt more questions as normalization process would eventually grade all the sets on a common scale.

Preparation is a continuous process, one cannot prepare overnight. The better the preparation, the higher is the chance of getting top B-School calls. All the best!
(Anustup scored 96.3 percentile in CAT 2010 and 96.7 percentile in XAT 2011. He got final admission call from XLRI Jamshedpur and IMT Ghaziabad. He has decided to join XLRI Jamshedpur for the HRM program. Anustup has done his graduation in Electrical Engineering from NIT Bhopal.)
