When To Start Preparation For CAT 2017?
Based on last year's timeline for CAT, it is safe to assume that this year too, the application process for CAT exam will begin by August and the exam will be conducted in December. This leaves roughly six months for candidates who are planning to appear for the exam this year. Six months' time, is considered ideal for preparation for CAT exam. As experts and qualified students claim, to qualify CAT you need to do smart and targeted preparation.
CAT is a computer-based exam which comprises of 100 questions. To score a good percentile in CAT, a student does not need to solve all 100 questions. Instead they need to solve enough questions correctly to put them in the top bracket. Many toppers in the past few years have claimed that they could crack the exam by just studying for 2-3 hours daily for a period of six months.
So the time is right. If you wish to crack CAT or any other management exam this year, it is time to start preparation now.
