  48. Hi Vishakha,


    IMS mock CATs are good...TIME is best.
    I wud have preferred to join TIME for mock CATs...
    This also depend on the city in which you are and how are the faculties over there(for class room coaching)

    You can read some prep tips here:
    Test taking strategy:http://howtoprepare4cat.blogspot.com/2008/09/test-taking-startegy.html
    Success Mantra: http://howtoprepare4cat.blogspot.com/2007/12/success-mantra-for-mba.html

    Starting you CAT Prep:
    http://howtoprepare4cat.blogspot.com/2007/12/how-to-start-your-cat-preparation.html





    For specialization it depend on your interest.

    Marketing is good for ppl who are outgoing in nature..and good at convincing others
    Finance good for those whi are good in interpreation...and have good mathematical aptitude
    IT for those who want to go ahead in their IT carrer at much higher pace
    HR for those who are good at ppl management...and oragnising things.

    Though u have some IT exp. but that doesnt mean that u cant do a specialization in HR, FIn ,Mrkting or IB.

    BTW how much IT exp do u have?

    I am also having an IT exp.....and wud prefer Finace or IB as my specialization.

    Reasons:
    Finance -> I am good at nos. and data interpration
    marketing -> I feel i am not that good in marketing or say convincing other for any product
    HR- > That doesn't interests me at all
    IT -> I am already having exp. in IT and to move ahead in the same career MBA is not that necessary...yeah it will though make things happen much faster.

    Let me know if you have any further queries...

  61. Hi,
    Can u please mail me a few papers of Snap,Xat and NMAT......?My email id is idreamalots@gmail.com.
    Well I had prepared for Cat,so how is the preparation of these exams different from Cat?What extra do I need to do?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hi All,

    Answers to some of the queries:

    1. GK is out of XAT

    2. Differential Marking means marks given on the basis of your performance.
    Say for first 6 incorrect answers 1/4th marks would be deducted and there after 1/2 marks would be deducted.
    So with above eg if 10 of your answers went wrong then total negative marks to be deucted from your score would be
    (6 * 1/4) + (4 * 1/2)

    3. I think 96+ in XAT should be enuff to get you a call from XLRI
    detials on percentile for various colleges can be checked here:
    http://mba-exams.blogspot.com/2008/09/cut-offs-for-various-mba-colleges.html

    4. You can get the past XAT Papers from here (even 2008 paper):

    All the Best!

  81. Hi Mohite

    Hey worry not if you prepare well from now then u ll surely make into any of the top mba colleges.....
    Well I ll suggest you to analyze your self first before starting your preparation, i.e. find out
    your strong and weak areas....and what all needs to be improved..... Preparation of CAT requires
    a lot of optimization and smart time management..... It would be difficult to give any success mantra
    specifically for you ....as I hardly knw your strengths and weaknesses.....

    Here are some of the links which will guide you :

  94. Hi,

    I just wrote my bcom 2nd year exams and want to start studying for CAT full time to write CAT this year and I know it is very late to start, could you kindly suggest a good plan that I can follow in order to do well in the exam.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Hey Akbar,

    You have around 5 months left for CAT. Will suggest you to utilize this time in best possible way.
    Here are few suggestions
    1. Don't join coaching classes.
    Reason:
    Not much time is there to join for any coaching classes
    2. Get enrolled for Mock Test within a month from now
    Reason:
    CAT is not only about solving question but proper time management. MOCK tests will give you ample experience to handle that.
    3. Before joining MOCK test do a revision of common areas of quantz formulas etc.
    4. Also try to take some mock test at home to analyze your strengths/weaknesses first
    How to find which section should you focus more?
    a.Simply pick up a past years CAT exam paper:

    Download Past Papers of CAT and other MBA exams

    b. Attempt as many questions as you can without putting the time limit in one go (say you sit for 4 hours read all the questions & attempt which ever you are confident of.....don't make any blind guess for any of the
    questions.....feel free to make calculated guess in verbal section :) ).
    c. Write down your overall score, along with sectional score
    d. Repeat step 1-3 for 2 more Past Year CAT Papers

    With your consolidated scores for two to three attempts of Mock CAT tests, you would be able find which section is your strength and which one is your weakness.

    Please Remember:
    -----------------
    Initially when you write any mock tests with same time limit as actual CAT, your scores would be quite low as you are yet to master the time management. So don't get panic, slowly with time & with your preparation in progress your score will rise progressively.

  98. Hi..
    I am a working professional with work ex of 1 year...could you suggest a study plan or some tips so that i can manage my time for preparation for cat 2011 as im working in shifts..plz help

    Regards

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hi Anonymous,

    First thing which you should do is to find your strengths and weaknesses after analysing yourself by solving past papers.....based on your areas of improvement you could easily plan your preparation.....
    Have goood collection of study materials...many of them including past papers are freely downloadable from this site iteslf....you just have to browse through the pages....
    As you are working I think it may not be possible for you to join weekday classes....if you really feel the need join for weekend classes (only if it is really needed!)....
    After initial preparation of 2-3 months do join for MOCK tests.... take each of the tests as seriously as the actual CAT.....Do analyse your MOCK test results to find out common mistakes.....
    Also as you are working in shifts, make sure that when you are feeling sleepy during study hours, start solving maths or Logical reasoning questions....this will keep you awake & keep your preparation on track!

    Feel free to ask any more questions....

    All the best!

    Good to know that you are so keen for MBA right from the beginning. Its not at all too early, this is the right time for you and you must keep your self focused on your aspiration. As you are in 1st year of B.Sc your legitimate CAT attempt would be in year 2013, which means you have around 2+ years in your hand. What matters most from here is a foolproof planning and understanding the complexities of CAT exam. I will guide you for the same ensuring that all your concerns are addressed. Would advise you to do all the required homework before jump starting your preparation. Below is the detailed plan please read through, it answers your concerns related with classroom coaching as well.

    Hi Anu,
    Improve your Verbal Communication as well for CAT
    Would recommend you to focus on spoken English as well, please form a group within your friend circle and have mock Extempore/ GDs/ Interviews/ Debates. This will not only help you in your MBA preparation(clearing GD/PI) but also for job interviews & will surely help in your overall personality/career development.
    I hope you should be able to organize such a session for half an hour everyday within your college campus or hostel.

  112. Dear Anonymous,

    Yes, you are required to fill individual form of colleges such as SP Jain. The CAT score will be accepted by the colleges only if you have filled their application form showing you are genuinely interested in applying to the particular college.

    1. Dear Anonymous,

      I can understand your problem. Unfortunately there is no shortcut for hardwork. The only thing which I could suggest you is to Practice a lot. Try to find what kind of questions you find difficult and try to practice them often. While solving DI/LR questions have a clock monitoring time taken by you, try to solve more number of question in stipulated amount of time and gradually you will see improvements.

      Also try to create your own approach for solving DI/LR questions.

      Refer below tips which you might useful:

    1. Dear Harpreet,

      Admissions to IIMs depends on lot of factors. CAT Score is one of them which is yet to be defined. Your 10th Marks, 12th Marks, graduation marks and year gap all are fixed now and cannot be changed.
      So most importantly focus on your CAT exam first and try to score as much as possible that you helpf you in getting wherever you want to go.
      People interviewing you for IIMs are pretty logical, experienced people and if you justify your year gap well I do not see any problem.
      Furthermore its no where mentioned in IIMs selection criteria that you cannot have an year gap.
      You can read the selection criteria for various IIMs at below page:
      http://howtoprepare4cat.blogspot.in/2011/08/iims-selection-criteria-shortlisting.html

      All the best!
