CAT 2016 Exam is nearing now and we need to keep the important dates in mind, so that we manage our preparation accordingly.

Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, and dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You got to keep going.

Get back to basics of each section (QA /DI and LR/VA) almost on daily basis. You just never give up, no matter how hard the challenges are, and observe a healthy dose of criticism on your shortcomings.

CAT 2016 will be more about smartness than about intelligence. In CAT 2016 nobody expects you to answer all the questions. There should be an elimination round for the questions as well. You should know what to select and what to reject.

You have to be choosy while attempting your paper. There is no fun in getting 4 marks for a question and losing one mark for the next. So, unless you are very sure of the solution to the question, don’t attempt it.

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.

You will have to build up a challenge in you to take on competition. Experts always suggest that Mock papers are the well tested way to continue with confidence levels.

Get ready to be grilled and you can achieve your mission CAT 2016 with a great success!
