If you want to be the smartest, give priority to “accuracy”. The act of choosing a question, in a way, is related to accuracy as you will select and reject a question based on the accuracy level you can achieve in solving the given question.

47 – 57 per cent of the paper done with 80 per cent accuracy will be much better than 80 per cent of the paper done with 47 – 57 per cent accuracy.

MBA entrance exams, CAT in particular, are among the toughest exams to crack in the country. With a diverse range of areas from which a mix of moderate and difficult questions are asked, these exams require thorough knowledge of every section of the exam and the various types of possible questions. Also, what makes exams like CAT tough, is the number of people who write these exams. This has a direct bearing on the toughness of the exam as well as the evaluation, which is relative, which means that you may have done well individually but others in the group may have done better than you, so your percentile will depend on the how you fare vis-à-vis others in the group. Only candidates who are tough mentally and physically to meet the challenges of the exam, can aim for an excellent percentile.

2. Gruelling preparation

A tough challenge calls for gruelling preparation. Aspirants who aim for the top percentiles have to ensure that they follow a strict routine, in which they acquire the requisite knowledge pertaining to the syllabus. The strict routine can often be compromised due to various reasons, it is here that the toughness of the candidate will be come into the fore. Single- minded determination to achieve the dream of studying in the best institute of the country is what drives the aspirants to put in all his/ her effort.

3. Pressure

Along with their own pressure, there is a lot of external pressures too on the candidates, for instance, pressure from the parents, relatives, peer pressure, pressure to stay ahead of competition, pressure to establish oneself. The people aiming for 95 or beyond percentile need to learn to absorb pressure and give their best under pressure within the stipulated time. Such an intense environment can only be handled by people who are tough nuts and remain unfazed by criticism or praise.

A person wanting to come in the top percentile brackets cannot afford to slip or take chances. Mental and physical toughness contribute in providing the candidate with the right environment that can help him/ her become successful.
