Hello everyone!!!

This is a post for students who want to take the CAT exam next year and want to start studying early to gain a competitive advantage. Today we are going to discuss the strategies of how and when to start for CAT 2023. So, the very first piece of advice from our side is to make this exam your priority. Set your goal and prepare with the dedication, hard work, and aim that you will be going to the top colleges. So, the journey of your preparation will start from the "MUST DO THINGS," which includes reading comprehension. If you want to do something good in your life, then start reading English, which includes your reading comprehension, novels, and articles. In today’s era, if you want to work globally and want to make global connections, then you must be strong in English. After English, the second and most important thing is aptitude. Nowadays, many companies will take your aptitude test as a test for knowledge and logic.  College students must begin preparing for the CAT exam in their second-to-last year of college, which states that you are eligible for the CAT exam when you are in your final year, but you must begin preparing for it in your second-to-last year. Begin raising your graduation scores above 7. Focus on your profile building as this is a must for cracking the TOP Collages. Participate in internships and be a part of any department or group at your college. Start working in NGOs, which will upgrade your profile. Make a habit of reading as much as you can. Start reading the newspaper, read the business news, sports news, etc. Before going to sleep, you must read for 30 minutes. Do the certification courses. The CAT exam syllabus last year had 66 total questions, which included 24 from the VARC section, 20 from the DI-LR section, and the rest, 22 from the Quant’s section. To score 99%ile in CAT, you only need to bring 50% marks, whereas for 90%ile, you only need to bring 33% marks.
