Methodology of 'Purposeful Mock CAT Analysis'
Many Aspirants study hard, practice a lot and take regular mocks, but they don’t get a good score and get demotivated. Most of them don’t even know how to improve their score.
What is the root of the problem?
The solution to the problem is to take as many mock tests but after that analyze them. This will help aspirants to know the mistakes and will not repeat the same. If you are not analyzing your mistakes then giving a mock test is not going to benefit aspirants in any way. Mocks are your playground to make as many mistakes as you want and then learn from them.
What is ‘wisdom’ when it comes to CAT?
A wise person is one who has an excellent judgment of a situation. In addition, he or she is competent enough to predict how a situation will unfold in the future. A wise CAT person will be able to determine the difficulty of a problem. He will be able to set and predict whether he will be able to solve it and how much time he will take to solve it. All this by glancing at the question. If you read about 25% of the question or set, you should be prepared to make the most critical decision – should I attempt it now, leave it for later (review), or not attempt it at all? When solving problems or sets, you should be able to determine what level of difficulty they are and how long it will take you to solve them.
What is the best way to enhance judgment? The only way to start replicating your successes is to do a post-mortem of your successes and failures during mock tests.
Personalized Review: It is not just a matter of getting answers and explanations after submitting the test. You are also given time to improve on your own. The option is available to request an INTERACTIVE REVIEW. In this review, you are given the chance to attempt the question again without being timed before receiving the correct answer. Making mistakes and improving on them on your own is the most effective way to learn. Afterward, the concept will live in your subconscious, preventing you from repeating the mistake in the future.
In the analysis process, what should be done?
You should analyze which questions take up too much time, which questions go wrong most often, which questions can be solved faster with options, whether you should attempt RCs at the start or at the end, and which RCs you should completely avoid.
When analyzing, you ask yourself only one question: “Did I judge well? Did I choose the right category of questions – easy (to be done now), to be reviewed later, or should I leave it alone?”
When you analyse a Quant question, DILR set or VARC passage, you might ask yourself, “During the exam, I rated this set as difficult. Was my judgment correct?” If it was, why did I do it right? If not, why did I do it wrongly?” As you do it more often, you begin to react intuitively to questions. This judgement becomes second nature to you. You may not be able to give a completely logical explanation as to why you decided a question was tough or easy. But your intuition will start functioning at high efficiency.
Developing a strategy:
CAT is less a test of knowledge than a game of time management and strategy improvisation, according to experts. You can take every test using AI Analytics to make your life easier. You can use the tools to devise your own tailored strategy.
The mock tests have been designed with precision and with your learning in mind. Therefore, keep analysing and improving!
