Importance of GK for every CAT Aspirant

August 31st, 2018 by

General Knowledge (GK) is a key component of several national-level examinations. It is often the game changer in entrance exams for UPSC, Bank PO, SSC, Law or BBA exams. Nomenclatures may differ between general knowledge, general awareness, business awareness, issues of social concern or something totally different, yet the spirit remains the same. Unlike these exams though CAT does not have any separate segment on GK. Does this mean that possessing food, all-round knowledge of national and international affairs is irrelevant for those aspiring to reach the top management institutions in th

How to ace the General English section in SNAP

August 25th, 2018 by

While candidates prepare rigorously for CAT, they sometimes tend to overlook other important MBA entrance exams. Talking specifically of SNAP, it just went online last year and is expected to be the same this year too. The exam will be held in the second or the third week of December in a single session. SNAP consists of 150 questions of one mark each which are to be answered in 120 minutes with a penalty of one-fourth of a mark being applicable for each wrong answer. It is different from CAT in more ways than one. Apart from the fact that the GK section plays a major role, the nuances in the

100 Days plan for Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for CAT Exam

August 23rd, 2018 by

Is there enough time to prepare for CAT 2018? As the CAT 2018 exam draws near, fear and sometimes panic starts to set in and this the most common question that I get asked. I will try to answer the question in this post and probably two more. Short Answer: Yes Slightly long answer: CAT preparation requires anywhere from 300 hours to 500 hours of serious preparation. That much time is more than enough for you (and for anyone else) to reach his or her peak potential. So, if you can put in 3-4 hours on weekdays and perhaps a little more on the weekend, you have enough time. Really lo

100 Days plan for Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation for CAT Exam

August 22nd, 2018 by

Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation was probably the toughest section in CAT 2017 exam. I think it surprised a lot of students because of the difficulty level of the questions asked. Another reason why I believe it appeared a little too difficult was because the other sections were on the easier side. If you have a look at the scores vs percentile relationship on a section-wise basis, you would find that you need to do 12 questions correctly in the Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation section when compared with 18-19 questions in Verbal Ability & Reading Comprehension or 14-

How to prepare for Quantitative Aptitude in 100 Days for CAT Exam

August 21st, 2018 by

Quantitative Aptitude is probably the scariest section for most students preparing for the CAT exam. The syllabus is huge, the list of formulas is endless, there is always a shortcut trick that you are not aware of, there are students who can solve complex looking Quant questions in less than a minute on Whatsapp and Facebook groups – should I go on? A lot of these problems arise because of the notion that a lot of people have – Math is Scary! This may be true in some circumstances but as far as CAT is concerned, nothing could be farther from the truth. Let me explain that with the hel

Learn the basics of Critical Reasoning with the help of Mahabharata

August 13th, 2018 by

In critical reasoning, logical bent of mind plays a major role. Statements which are correlated to each other are presented and finally they reach at the conclusion. An essential skill to inculcate in critical reasoning is to find the missing link , which we call the assumption.Thus assumptions fill the missing link between the premises and the conclusion. Let us take a small example of the missing link— Four of the most striking characters in Mahabharat were Karna, Arjuna, Drona and Bhisma. At the end of the war Arjuna got the triumph. Here in the above two statements, th
