  4. Proper Diet and Sleep well:  It is important that one takes proper care of themselves. Avoid unhealthy and junk food as you don't want to fall sick before your exam. It is very important to take proper sleep and rest a day before the D-day. Having an incomplete sleep will affect your performance during the exam.
  5. Avoid last-minute revision: The last few hours before the exam is meant only to relax your mind and body. Taking any sort of stress must be avoided. And taking anything new that you have never studied before is a complete No. 
  6. Try meditating: The last few days before the D-day should be full of relaxation, it is suggested to meditate for 30-45 minutes. This will calm you even more and boost your concentration power.

CAT 2022 Last-Minute Tips: Section -Wise

The candidates should also pay attention to the section-wise last-minute tips. Each section needs to be attempted carefully. Some sectional last-minute tips are given below:

Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension

This section takes the maximum time. It is advised that aspirants should pay attention to this section from the beginning itself. Develop the habit of reading. The more you read, the better you will be not only in terms of scanning the passages quickly but also in having a better vocabulary. For the last minute though for this section the students can maintain flashcards. These flashcards will come in handy prior to the exam for revision. On the day of the exam, one should read the passages very carefully as few passages can be tricky. Understand what the author in the passage is trying to denote.

Quantitative Ability

Quantitative Ability is often considered the most difficult section of CAT by many aspirants. The Quantitative Ability section needs a lot of practice. Aspirants in their last few days should revise the formulae and also practice revision questions. To ace, the Quantitative section one needs to have speed and accuracy. It is, however, important that the fundamentals of QA are clear to the candidate.
