CAT or Common Admission Test is one of the most popular tests among the MBA aspirants. CAT is a gateway to the IIMs and various other top B-Schools in India. If we talk about aspirants and admission-seekers, a substantial number of people must be preparing for the first time, focussing for the exams which will happen next year, if they are not eligible for CAT 2021. So, for the people who are planning to appear for the CAT 2022, NOW is the right time to begin your preparations.

If you start your preparations for CAT 2022 NOW, you will have roughly 16 months of time in hand in which you can very easily score 99+ percentile. Let us guide you with some tips and suggestions you must follow so that you get admission in the B-School of your dreams.

  1. Better PLANNING As we all know, if you want to reach somewhere, you need to build a road to that place. Similarly, if you want to crack CAT 2022 (or any other exam for that matter), you need to prepare a fool-proof plan that you follow thoroughly. If you start your preparations NOW for the exam to be held 18 months later, you will have enough time to plan your studies, you can devote sufficient amount to time to each of the topics from which the questions will be asked in the exam
  2. Easy Management of PREPARATIONAs you will have sufficient time to prepare for CAT 2022, you can manage your preparation effectively along with your ongoing college schedule/job schedule. Early preparation enables you with a lesser number of daily hours investment
  3. Strict Routine – As per your plan, you must fix the time you want to devote for your serious preparations. To follow your plan, you must have seriousness, discipline, and passion to achieve your goal. There is always a driving factor (need) that triggers you to get determined towards your goal.
  4. Have a Wider-Perspective – This means you should not focus only on CAT 2022, instead you must focus for every other MBA entrance examination in which you may get admission to a good institute. As the syllabus for most of the MBA entrance examinations is almost similar, you must try others as well (unless you aim to get into IIMs only)
  5. Start from SCRATCH Having so much time to prepare in your hand, we suggest you to start from the very basics. Pick up your 10th standard books (for English and Mathematics) and start solving questions.

(Remember: Questions asked in CAT are of 10th standard only – all you need to master is the time you take to answer any question)

  1. Correcting MISTAKES It’s OK to make mistakes, until and unless you learn from them. Starting your preparations early leaves you with ample amount of time to work on your mistakes and to learn from them so that you don’t repeat them
  2. Enough Time to Practice MOCKS and SAMPLE Papers Starting early also has a benefit that you can get enough time to solve Mock tests and Previous Years’ papers. Moreover, once you solve mocks, sample papers and previous years’ papers, you can gauge your performance and have an idea about your shortcomings, so that you can work upon them before attempting the main CAT 2022 exam
  3. Multi-Tasking – Starting your preparations earlier also has a benefit that you can cover a wider range of MBA entrance examinations that will happen in 2022 and not only limit your focus to CAT 2021. As the syllabus of CAT is mostly similar to any other MBA entrance exam, you get prepared for them as well without any additional effort
  4. Enough Time for Revision – Since, you have ample amount of time in hand, once you are done with preparing and solving previous year questions, you might want to revisit the concepts that you have studied while preparing. Thus starting-off earlier gives you the advantage to do so.

There is a saying in English – “The secret to getting ahead is getting started ”, which means that you get started by breaking your complex tasks into smaller tasks, and then starting on the first one. Similarly, we suggest all our dear CAT aspirants to gear up and board the flight to success with Gradeup’s CAT 2022 Batch.
