CAT 2017: IIM & FMS toppers’ 5 point preparation strategy; focus on Mocks & right study material

Barely 60 days are left for CAT 2017 exam day which falls on November 26, 2017. The time period could be seen as too short to enable you score 99+ or sufficient enough to join club 99. Past CAT toppers prefer the latter situation and in their view 60 days are sufficient to score 99 in CAT 2017.

CAT 2016 toppers and students of MBA/PGP 2017-19 at FMS Delhi, IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Indore share 5 step preparation strategy to crack CAT 2017 with high score.

Step-1: Utilise Dussehra Holidays
Those who are preparing for CAT 2017 seriously are advised to utilise their next 3-4 days Dussehra holidays with intense CAT exam preparation and ensure that they are able to overcome their weakness, clarify their doubts and strengthen their fundamentals. Taking Mocks during these holidays and analysing them for the inadvertent errors must be done invariably, suggest the past CAT toppers.

Step-2: Two Months enough to score 99
According to FMS Delhi student and CAT 2016 topper with 99.99 percentile, Atul Goyal “Prepare sincerely and even 2 months are not less to score 99 percentile, just be sincere and devote some time every day to your CAT preparation.”Read all about the CAT success story

The CAT 2017 aspirants should therefore not get disheartened only because of the fact that only 2 months are left. Instead right preparation strategy with the help of different LoD CAT Mocks can lead to high scores and on the CAT 2017 exam day, the actual exam will be no different than another Mock test.
