All those preparing for CAT or planning to do often feel dilemma about numerous things. No matter how many nuggets of facts are provided, these problems are not answered explicitly. Hence, we have come up with the idea of the problem and solution model; to address the issues and introduce the solutions.
1. With coaching or without coaching?
We have a straightforward answer for this. Suppose your basics are clear and you’re well familiar with the exam pattern. All you need to do is to practice rigorously. In that case, you may prepare by yourself.
On the other hand, if that’s not the case, do well-structured classes for conceptual clarity. In addition to concept coverage, your preparation would be charted and directed on the right path.
2. Which coaching should I opt for?
This problem is worth critically assessing. We have jotted down some student-friendly aspects that anyone would certainly look at.
• Will your preparation timeline be charted?
• Will the class hours work for you?
• Can you revisit the classes if you miss out on the live class or want to revise?
• Do they provide quality classes for all the sections your exam may ask?
• Will they answer each of your queries during the preparation?
• Will they enable you to connect to the mentors from time to time?
• How many mocks followed by the sessions to analyze will be provided?
• What’s the after CAT support?
You may look for these features before choosing any place for your preparation.
3. This is my profile. Would I be able to make it to an IIM?
Answering this with one statement only. Whatever your profile may be, try to maximize your CAT percentile. A great percentile followed by good post CAT processes, GDPI compensates for many things.
4. Which material should I refer to?
You must have felt at times if the material you’re referring to is right or not. So here comes the list of materials that you can refer to:
1. Material of any coaching class that you have.
2. Past year CAT papers.
3. Mocks and sectionals that you are taking.
4. IIM ABC practice batch by iQuanta. IIM ABC batch contains CAT level curated content with 500 RCs, 500 LRDIs and 3500 QA questions.
5. How many mocks should I write?
Your strategy should be taking the topic wise tests, entire sectional tests and CAT full length mock test. You can take 2 mock sets. However, there’s no definite number of mocks that you should write. But, always try to write as many as you can, provided that you analyze them.
