There is a belief that only those with the background of engineering, have best chances to crack Common Admission Test (CAT) exams for admissions in country’s best business schools. As per Indian Express, those who believe this argument say that unlike engineering students, other students from commerce and arts streams lose touch with mathematics and quantitative aptitude, which is quite necessary to crack CAT exams.
As per the report, the Indian Institutes of Management has often said that CAT has not been designed only for engineers as business schools like to have students from different academic backgrounds. The preparations for CAT exams remain same for everybody. The CAT exam this year will be held on November 26. Here are some tips students may follow to clear CAT exams:
Hard Work: Grandma was right, there are no short cuts to success. The only way to achieve your targets and dreams is only through hard work, focus, determination and confidence and belief in your own abilities to succeed. An example of that would be iconic cricketer Virat Kohli. His belief in hard work and confidence in himself have ensured he became the top batsman in the world.
Planning: One must make the proper plan on how and what to study. The elaborate plan can make preparations a bit simpler without creating hotchpotch in the minds of students. If you spread yourself too large, there will be no end to your tasks and will inevitably remain unfulfilled. Fix the number of hours you want to study. Focus on your daily routine, and do not skip or play truant.
Understand the subject: You must focus and understand that subject quite clearly. Start with basics, even if it means tracking school books. If your basic is clear than you will be able to understand the subject clearly without creating confusion in your mind.
Revision: Don’t forget to revise your subjects time and again as this will help you not to forget whatever you have studied so far and will also raise your confidence. If you skip revising chances are you may forget whatever you have studied till now, making your preparations weak.
Take tests: Make sure you put yourself through written tests without the help of any books. Write straight from memory and understanding.
