CAT 2016: 5 last-minute preparation tips for MBA aspirants

With just days to go for the Common Admission Test (CAT) 2016, it is time to pull up your socks.

This year, over 2.32 lakh candidates are scheduled to appear for the exam in two slots - morning and afternoon.

Here are some last-minute CAT 2016 preparation tips from Catch:

1. Mock Test and analysis

We asked Vinayak Kudva, the National Product Head and Chief Mentor at IMS Learning Resources Pvt Ltd, for some tips. Here's what Kudva said:

"On Tuesday-Friday-Sunday, take a three-hour Simulated test, preferably in the same slot as you have been scheduled for in the actual CAT. Now take another three hours to do a detailed analysis of the SimCAT performance (on the same day or otherwise).

"On Monday-Wednesday-Thursday-Sat, do purposeful practice. For three hours, attempt 35 to 50 Math questions from pre-fixed area identified on basis of SimCAT performance OR 1 Quant Section Test followed by analysis. Then attempt 2-3 DI sets, 2-3 LR sets, or 1 DI-LR Section for 45 minutes each, followed by analysis. Also, practice 30 to 40 VA questions of a specific type (say Jumbled Para) for 1.5 hour, 2-3 RC passages for 30 min or attempt 1 Verbal Section Test followed by analysis for 2 hours," he says.
