Life at an IIM
As everyone says hours do not matter. But for an average student, up to 3-4 hours per day can bring out a very good result.
@Sreyavarshini K I am very afraid. I am from non-engineering background. I was planning to start my preparation on may18(when my semester is over) but our exams postponed(due to covid )😪 i don't know when they are going to reschedule it.
I am planning to devote my full time for the preparation of cat afterwards.
Do you how month will it require to cover all the topic thoroughly
@pespurackel approx 90 to 100 days ie ( 3 months)
@pespurackel Hi, Hope youre doing good. I can totally understand your college semesters are coming up. Im a second year student as well. I think managing college and CAT prep parallelly is no big deal. Wake up early in the morning or sleep late at night. You can spend atleast 2-3 hours in a day for your CAT prep. So pls stay devoted to the exam. Dont wait until ur semesters are done. Spend 3 hours a day CONSISTENTLY. youll ace the exam.
prp tip: Im a Non- Engineer as well,
Change your approach - calculate the number of questions you'll need to solve per day from June 1st to whichever date you'd like to finish your basics.
E.g. if it is Aug end, you'd have around 90 days. Count the total number of questions that constitute basics of all 3 sections (i.e. the easier questions). Then, divide the number of questions by 90 and you'll get your daily target.
Don't consider the day over until you are done with that number.
first of all, you will give two to four mocks test then you have identify ,which section is your strong or weak.In my case quant and DIRL section little bit strong because i belong to science stream as well as B.SC in math. VARC is my weak section. I read Aeon eassy ,indian express , The hindu editorial ,4 RC solve in daily basic .I take 6 hours in day
@Aashish kumar thanks
@Aashish kumar omg! Six hours a day is great! Keep It up. Be consistent!
@Sreyavarshini K Thanks a lots for encourage me
