{tab=CAT Exam 2012}

First day after the CAT Exam 2012

CAT 2012 took off without any major glitches. The turnout on the first day was also very less. According to the officials from Prometric, which conducts the online test, 4429 candidates appeared for the CAT on the first day.

Although reports suggest that some aspirants found the Quantitative section slightly difficult to navigate, majority of the candidates found the test easier than they expected. Does this mean that the test which was supposed to be the toughest management entrance test in the country is changing?

It is too early to come to any such conclusion and it would make sense to wait and see how the reviews are, in the coming days. Authorities say that last year there were some major changes made therefore they are just trying to see how things evolve this time around.

Experts say that aspirants who are yet to take the test should not completely rely on the comments posted by students on various platforms. For example, comments like attempting these many questions will be enough to obtain a certain percentile should not be believed in as it all depends on the difficulty level of the test on the particular day and the accuracy along with the number of attempts.

There have also been cases where the strategies to take the test have been given. Instead of focussing entirely on trying to find out the experiences of the test takers, candidates should put in efforts to brush up their basics and not get bogged down by any speculations.

It’s all about keeping a positive frame of mind, ignoring any rumours and most importantly not changing your strategy at the last moment

{tab=CAT First Day}

CAT Exam First Day

Day one of the computer-based CAT ( Common Admission Test ) exam went off smoothly without any glitches. Introduced in 2009, this was the fourth year when CAT was conducted online. A total of 4.429 candidates took the exam on first day at 61 centers all over the country.

Students coming out of the test center expressed that the exam was of moderate difficulty level. While QA ( Quantitative Ability ) and DI ( Data Interpretation ) were a bit challenging, VA ( Verbal Ability )  and LR ( logical Reasoning ) sections were easy.

A test taker expressed that 70 minutes were not sufficient to solve section one owing to its difficulty level. The questions involved intensive calculation while few questions required to interpret 2-3 charts at one go. QA was overall a mix of difficult and very difficult questions. The questions were asked from the areas such as geometry, algebra, logarithm, number system, permutation & combination, functions among others. The DI section had relatively tough questions.

In section 2, reading comprehension passage was followed by 10 questions ( 3+3+4 ) where most of the questions were direct in one of the sets. VA was a mixed bag of 4 to 5 types of questions. It had 10 questions which were easy and simple. The paper had no surprises this year and the overall difficulty level was moderate.

Prometric India, which is a technical provider for CAT 2012, revealed that both the slots were conducted smoothly and all the aspirants were able to complete their test successfully without any technical glitches.

The next online test is scheduled for Saturday, October 13, 2012. The exam will go on till November 6, 2012. The exam is being held in 2 slots – morning and afternoon. Test comprised of 2 sections – QA & DI; VA & LR. Both the sections carried 30 questions each and time duration allotted was 70 minutes.

{tab=CAT Exam Dos and Dont’s}

CAT Exam 2012 Dos and Dont’s

With only one day left in hand for the CAT Exam, aspirants must be thinking what should be done and what not in these last minutes. This is the time to relax and recollect what all you have learnt in past 4-5 months. We are providing here some tips which should be adopted in the last stage of preparation :

CAT Exam Do’s

Practise : Practice mock CATs and past CAT papers in real time situation. Take these tests in the form of sections and within the stipulated time. Assign a time limit of 2 minutes to each question and thus a total duration of 80 minutes for solving 40 questions. Go through the ready reckoner where you have listed out all important concepts and formula.

Analyze : The objective of taking mock CATs is to know your weak areas so that you can work upon it. This is only possible if you analyze your performance well instead of focusing on your scores or ranks. A 70 minute section requires a minimum of 140 minute analysis. IT will help you to know what you have done correctly and what not. It will also help you to fine tune your strategy for the sections.

Revise : Time management plays a very important role in getting through a competitive exam. Many students fail to make it just because of lack of speed and accuracy. Remember that both speed and accuracy will come if you have revised all topics and practiced them well. Ensure that you are able to solve nearly 22-25 questions in each section with 85% accuracy. By this time you would have identified important questions in Mock CATs and Past CAT papers so now it’s time to revise them weekly. This will help you to solve such questions in no time if a similar problem is asked in the CAT exam.

Relax : Do not try to mug up till last minute; it will not help rather confuse you. Concentrate on what you have learnt so far so that they are retained in your brain. Take up stress buster exercises so that you stay relaxed on the D day. Watch TV, take up activities which entertain you, take plenty of water and ample sleep before going for the exam.

Stay focused : Stay focused and confident about your preparation. Write your exam patiently.

CAT Exam Don’ts

Don’t start any new topic : Learning new topics in last phase of preparation is a waste, it will only confuse you. Whatever you have learnt so far will only help you. If you have ignored any specific area or topic, do not panic. This is not the time to start a new topic. Be confident about the topics you have prepared for. Only revise what you have learnt so far.

Don’t focus on your score in Mock CATs : Mock CATs and Past CAT papers are meant to know your weak areas and work upon them. Do not focus on the marks scored in Mock CATs or Past CAT papers.

Don’t get stuck on one question : Remember time management is very important. Keep a proper track of time during the exam. Do not spend more than 2 minutes on one question. If you are not able to solve any question, move ahead. You can come back to it later after attempting all questions. Don’t spend time on solving difficult questions else you will miss on the easy questions given in later part of the paper. First identify the easy questions from the paper and attempt them. Leave time consuming and difficult questions to be solved later.

Avoid blind guessing : CAT paper carries negative mars so avoid blind guessing. Mark answers only if you are confident about it else you will gain negative marks. Remember in CAT your accuracy rate will matter not the quantity. Each correct answer will push your rank up by a heavy margin.

Don’t lend your ears to rumors : Remember each slot will have different set of papers so if a student is getting difficult questions in his/her slot, it is not necessary that you will also get difficult questions or vice versa. Don’t get carried away by the rumors. Such rumours are meant only to distract you. Have faith in yourself and your preparation.

Don’t overstress yourself : It is human tendency to get tensed over the exam but overstressing yourself is not acceptable. Don’t take so much mental pressure that it hampers your performance on the CAT Exam.

{tab=CAT Last Minutes Tips 2012}

CAT Last Minutes Tips 2012

It is just about a week to go now for CAT 2012 to begin. The question on most students minds, especially those giving the exam in the first half of the exam window is, “What should I do between now and the CAT to be able to crack the exam?”

Right up there on the To-Do list is to check your familiarity with the online test format. If you have not given enough Mock CATs, and are not well versed with the aspects of CBT, you have to get familiar immediately. Visit the link provided by CAT & Prometric for the demo test and also go through the official test guide. The links are as below

http://catiim.in/CATPracticeTest/index.html & http://catiim.in/pdf/CAT2012PracticalGuide.pdf

Most students believe that the best way to prepare is to take as many mocks as possible, very close to the exam. This obviously isn’t the right way to go about it as repeated mocks highlight the same weaknesses and if students are not analysing their mistakes and rectifying them then there will not be any major improvement in their performance. And taking the mocks this close to the exam, with no time to improve on the areas of development highlighted by the mocks, will only serve to hit the confidence levels of the students negatively. A thorough analysis of the mocks taken so far will yield far better dividends than taking more such mocks now.

Do not leave out on areas that you think are the least important. One of the most common errors that students make is to prepare on selected topics, based on the what their friends who have taken CAT last year said. It is essential to understand, that these ‘friends’, though they are as well meaning as possible, have seen only one slot of the exam and are giving advice to you based on that one slot. They have no idea what happened on the other slots. So, it is risky to follow such advice and base your preparation on selected topics. If there are any topics / areas that you have not touched so far, now is the time to get at least a basic grip on them.

During the last week, focus more on revising all the topics which you have learnt so far. This will ensure that the topics are fresh in your mind and that you don’t need to struggle to remember them when you need them the most. Making a ready reckoner, a kind of a flip-able set of papers with the important concepts listed, might help some students who have a problem with particular topics.

Speed Maths – It is never late to add to your speed. Spend at least one hour every day practicing speed maths concepts and calculations. The concepts, however much you can gain in this short time, will help you save time in the exam. Remember that time saved is time gained and hence marks gained and thereby, could result in a seat gained.

Last but not the least, shut your mind and ears to rumor mills about the exam. They only add to the nuisance value and will distract you from your preparation making you lose valuable time and getting you worked up for no reason. Always remember – all that is in your control is to put up your best performance in the exam.
