(Chat Transcript)

anurag : HELLO SIR PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO IMPROVE ON INFERENCE BASED QUESTIONS IN RC
ankur : as the word suggest, "inferences" are not mentioned in the passage but they are hinted at. so don't mark answers that are mentioned clearly in the passage. at the same time, don't mark answers that are not supported by logic. common wrong answers will include answers that are too broad in their scope or too narrow in their scope, in relation to the question.


xyz : SIR I AM SCORING VERY LOW..MY MAXIMUM SCORE IN AIMCAT IS 50..I AM NOT GETTING PROPER GUIDANCE ON HOW TO PREPARE ..THREE MONTHS ARE LEFT, AND I AM SCORING SUCH MARKS..ALSO IN OUR CLASS LR DI HAS NOT EVEN STARTED AND IN QUANT WE HAVE DONE UPTO NUMBER,SURDS,MIXTURE N AVERAGE,CALENDER,BLOOD RELATION,DATA SUFFICIENCY,EQUATION..I DO READ NEWSPAPER AND SOLVE SECTIONAL BUT I FORGET WHAT I DO..TENSED N DEMOTIVATED..CAN U PLS GUIDE ME?
asim : There is no need to be demotivated,there is enough time left to prepare for CAT. Kindly let me know you batch code, i suggest you start off by working on the basics from the basic study material. Collect your doubts and discuss with a faculty member. Moreover meet with a faculty member at your center and discuss in person complete preparation strategy, best wishes.


anurag : SIR, HOW SHOULD ONE APPROACH THE PARA FORMING QUESTIONS? I GOT A LOT OF THEM WRONG IN AIMCAT HOW SHOULD I PRACTISE AND GET THEM RIGHT?
swapnila : Start by understanding the paragraph structure , then look out for the introductory sentence and links to connect the other sentences.


rosh : SIR AS 3 MONTHS ARE LEFT..CAN U PLS TELL US THE PROPER TIME TABLE ..HOW MUCH TO STUDY FROM WHERE AND HOW..HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD BE GIVEN TO PARTICULAR SUBJECT..OR HOW TO MANAGE BETWEEN AIMCAT,SAMCATS,SECTIONAL,MODULE,HANDOUTS EVERYTHING ?
vinnayraj : firstly make sure you covered atleast the fundamentals in all the topics..if some of the concepts are not clear try to work on them..take every aimcat form now on religiously and analyse each one them and ensure you spend twice as much time in analysing..take sectional tests between the aimcats and go through the handouts and study material once again..


anurag : SIR, SHOULD I READ THE RC'S TWICE IS IT A GOOD TECHNIQUE?
prajnanray : No... Try to read and understand at one go


abhijitray : HELLO SIR!!! IN THIS AIMCAT I FACED A COUPLE OF RC'S THAT I WAS INTERESTED IN OR NOT AWARE OF IT. CONSEQUENTLY MY SCORESWERE VERY POOR. WHAT CAN I DO IMPROVE THIS KIND OF PROBLEM
ankur : read more passages of areas that are unfamiliar or not of your interest. if you do that, you will become more interested. non-understanding is a common reason behind lack of interest. so work on understanding and slowly you will develop interest and more understanding.


anurag : SIR PLEASE ADVICE ME ON HOW TO MAKE GOOD USE OF THE CUE CARD? DO WE HAVE TO MEMORISE THEM?
ankur : no. you don't have to memorise words. please work on vocab and appx 2 months from now, when you have worked on vocab a lot, check your preparation from the cue cards, by looking at words and trying to recollect meanings. alternatively, you can look at meanings and try to recollect the words. you can do this with a friend to make it more interesting. make a game around it with points.


neelima : WHY CUTOFF OF VARC ALWAYS MORE THAN DILR? IS VARC THAT EASY?
pradeepgoswami : relatively easier as was the trend in CAT2015


anurag : SIR WHAT WAS THE QUANTS LEVEL IN THIS AIMCAT?
pradeepgoswami : moderate to easy


abc : SIR I HAVE GOT ALL THE TIME..MY ONLY FOCUS IS CAT BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO INVEST MY TIME N DO MY BEST..I FEEL LIKE I AM WASTING MY TIME..HOW TO PREPARE AND GIVE YOUR BEST IN THESE 3 MONTHS?
ankur : find the section with lowest percentile. that is your weakest section. work on that the most. the section with the highest percentile should get the least attention.


neelima : WHAT WAS THE LEVEL OF VARC, LRDI AND QUANT IN THIS AIMCAT?
tarannumraza : The VA level was quite simple, esp the parajumbles ,& the first 2 RCs


lohit : THE RATIO OF PRESENT AGES OF A MAN AND A WIFE IS 5:4. AFTER 20 YEARS THE RATIO OF MAN AND WIFE COULD BE?
vinnayraj : it will less than 5/4 as it is an improper fraction and if you add a constant term to both the numerator and denominator the value of the fraction decreases..


anurag : SIR I DID MY AIMCAT EVALUATION AND FOUND THAT I MISS THE TINY DETAILS OF RC'S AND GET THE QUESTIONS WRONG, HOW SHOULD I IMPROVE ON THAT?
ankur : since you already found out that you are missing tiny details, just focus on them. read more carefully and interpret correctly (neither less nor more than what is intended).


xyz : HI..WANTED TO CHECK..WHERE WILL I FIND MATERIAL RELATED TO SET THEORY IN QUANT? (WHICH BOOK / CHAPTER?)
ankur : set theory is available in your LR booklet.


sd : SIR/MAM,ACTUALLY TODAY ONLY TOOK CORRESPONDENCE COURSE OF TIME.IF I START MY PREPARATION TODAY AND WORK HARD WILL I BE ABLE COMPLETE THE SYLLABUS?
pradeepgoswami : sure you will. thoroughly revise the basics involved and take regular tests


chandu : IM SCORING FROM 86 TO 111(1717 AIMCAT) SCORE ...IM WORKING CURRENTLY...IM PREP FOR 2 HRS A DAY...WHAT MORE THINGS I HAVE TO WORK MORE..TO INCREASE MY SCOREE..
ankur : find the section with lowest percentile. that is your weakest section. work on that the most.


bhcb6o100 : HELLO SIR,
prajnanray : Hi... What's your query?


neelima : COMPARED TO ACTUAL CAT WHAT WAS LEVEL OF THIS AIMCAT?
ankur : since we don't know the level of CAT 2016, this question is impossible to answer.


ankit_95 : SIR MY SCORES IN LAST FIVE AIMCATS IS 136,141,144,133,108. I AM WORRIED ABOUT MY LAST AIMCAT SCORE. I WANT TO SCORE MORE THAN 160 IN COMING AIMCATS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
vinnayraj : you have performed pretty consistently and hence you shouldnt worry about an occasional dip in performance..and targeting any particular score will put undue pressure and it may not be possible as you dont know the difficulty level of the next test..instead focus only on fine tuning the strategy and correcting your mistakes and your percentile should naturally improve(score doesnt matter)..


r12 : HELLO SIR...IN 1717...MY NET SCORE IS 27(RC-12,LR-2,QA-13) AND MY PERCENTILE IS 18.04..THIS WAS MY WORST SCORE EVER...I WAS NOT ABLE TO SOLVE ANY LRDI QUES..I ALWAYS ATTEMPT AROUND 15-20 QUES IN EVERY TOPIC...BUT MY ACCURACY LEVEL IS NOT IMPROVING..WHAT SHOULD I DO?
pradeepgoswami : please attend all the classes and complete your SM books. Do solve all your class handouts before taking the AIMCATS.


bhcb6o100 : HELLO SIR, MY ACCURACY IN RC IS VERY LOW. IN LAST AIMCAT I GOT ONLY 8 CORRECT OUT OF 19.. WHAT SHOULD I DO? PEOPLE SAY READ NEWSPAPER, ARTICLES, I AM DOING ALL OF THIS BUT THIS IS NOT HELPING IN IMPROVING MY RC :(
ankur : you need to have more solving practice. only newspaper or only article will give you reading ability but not question solving practice. solve the tests that you have in the book, on the sectional tests homepage. that will make you think on how to solve, and not just how to read.


neelima : MY PERCENTILE IN MOST OF THE AIMCATS IS BETWEEN 92-98. MY SCORE IS ALWAYS CONSISTENT FROM 120-160 BUT I NEVER IMPROVE. WHAT TO DO?
vinnayraj : firstly you are doing very well at this stage and since you have been very consistent you can easily look at a 98 + percentile or even 99+ in the cat..instead of focusing on the score work on fine tuning the strategy and correcting your mistakes...also try to implement the learning from the analysis of the aimcats in the upcoming tests..if there is a need go back to the fundamentals of a few concepts...


kriti : HELLO SIR...I AM SCORING IN THE RANGE OF 100-120 FROM THE LAST 3 -4 AIMCATS..HOW SHOULD I TAKE IT BEYOND 150?
pradeepgoswami : Do a thorough analysis of your AIMCATs to improve on your accuracy and speed.Try to pick the topics where you are strong and revise the basics of the topics where you are weak. Lastly you should not concentrate on your score but it should be your percentile you must be tracking


vanya : HI, MY ACCURACY IN VERBAL IS VERY LOW. I HARDLY GET 2 OUT OF 10 RIGHT. HOW SHOULD I IMPROVE VERBAL ?
tarannumraza : The most important area to focus on in VA us reading comprehension.At the same time maximum errors are made here because of guesswork.answer the question only if you have understood the passage properly.Practise as much as possible at the same time analyse your mistakes.


ms : HELLO SIR MORE I AM PREPARING FOR RC MY MARKS ARE DECREASING WHAT I DO
prajnanray : Talk to a faculty member at your centre and find out your problem and then practise to minimise them


vikram : SIR IS IT ADVISABLE TO FIRST COVER ONLY QUANTS, THEN DILR AND THEN VARC OR PREPARE THEM SIMULTANEOUSLY?
ankur : normally you should prepare them simultaneously since sectional cutoffs are applicable over the entire paper :)


r12 : @ANKUR PLEASE ANSWER MY QUERY HELLO SIR...IN 1717...MY NET SCORE IS 27(RC-12,LR-2,QA-13) AND MY PERCENTILE IS 18.04..THIS WAS MY WORST SCORE EVER...I WAS NOT ABLE TO SOLVE ANY LRDI QUES..I ALWAYS ATTEMPT AROUND 15-20 QUES IN EVERY TOPIC...BUT MY ACCURACY LEVEL IS NOT IMPROVING..WHAT SHOULD I DO?
ankur : please attend all the classes and complete your SM books. Do solve all your class handouts before taking the AIMCATS. when solving SM booklets, please solve initially with the objective of gaining familiarity. later shift to timed tests so that you gain speed too.


radhika : SIR, AN OFF TOPIC QUESTION BUT REALLY NEED AN ANSWER, CAN I GET INTO NARSEE MONJI IF I HAD A BACKLOG IN MY GRADUATION,I COMPLETEDMY BTECH IN 4 YRS ONLY
vinnayraj : yes you can..work hard and prepare well and ace the test..read extensively on current affairs which will help you do well in the interviews and you will be able to make it..


kriti : WHAT SHOULD BE THE DAILY INPUT IN TERMS OF NO OF HOURS OF STUDY?HOW TO DIVIDE THE STUDY TIME BETWEEN 3 SECTIONS?
vinnayraj : as equally as possible..make sure you solve atleast one lr,one di and one rc every day..also solve problems from different areas in quant and make sure you practice sitting for a stretch of 3 hours while studying as you need to maintain top focus for the same duration in the actual test...


yes123 : ANY GOOD SOURCES TO GET ACCUSTOMED WITH PASSAGES ON PHILOSOPHY, SOCIOLOGY ETC?
tarannumraza : A good way to practice difficult RCs is by attempting the previous years CAT RCs- when the exam used to be offline.You will get RCs on varied topics as well as questions to test your understanding.They are given on your student homepage


alex : HELLO SIR, I AM SCORING AROUND 170-180 IN EACH AIMCAT, BUT MY SCORES IN QUANT ARE STILL IN THE 40S...PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO PROCEED WITH MY PREPARATION.
feroz : Could you throw more light on how much have you practiced/solved from SMs, HOs, sectional tests on SHP?


xyz : @ANKUR: U MEAN IT IS IN THE CHAPTER (VENN DIAGRAMS?)
ankur : yes please.


mr : WHEN I GIVE ADVANCE SECTIONAL TEST FOR QUANT ,I DONOT GET GOOD MARKS OR NOTHING WHAT SHOULD I DO
feroz : Can you share the trend of your scores, the number of attempts etc


ms : SIR IN RC SOME TIMES I AM UNABLE TO ACCEPT THE LOGIC GIVEN BEFORE RIGHT ANSWER
prajnanray : Talk to your fm at the centre


alex : WHICH IS THE BEST NEWSPAPER FOR CURRENT AFFAIRS AND FOR BUSINESS ?
pradeepgoswami : The Hindu and The Economic Times


bhcb6o100 : SIR THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I AM PREPARING FOR CAT. I HAVE SOLVED ALMOST ALL SMS BOOKS OF SET-1 BUT AFTER THAT ALSO WHILE WRITING AIMCAT I GET TO SEE A LOT OF QUESTIONS WHICH ARE COMPLETELY NEW TO ME AND I DONT WANT TO ATTEMPT THOSE QUE IN AIMCAT.
vinnayraj : if you are thorough with the fundamentals you should be able to solve a good number of questions..though the presentation of the problems may catch you off-guard in the aimcat,essentially the concepts tested are the same..dont get scared of disturbed by the presentation of the problems..approach them with calm and composure and ideas will strike as you have covered the fundamentals...


kriti : SIR I HAVE GIVEN ALL THE AIMCATS TILL NOW AND MY AVERAGE PERCENTILE IS 86%ILE...I FEEL SOMETHING SOMEWHERE IS DEEPLY MISSING AS I FEEL THAT TILL NOW THE AVG PERCENTILE SHOULD HAVE BEEN AROUND 95.I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH MY ONGOING PREPARATION LEVEL...I AM UNABLE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO..PLS HELP?
govindrajan : Please check your accuracy rate. Check if you can reduce wrong answers by paying attention on accuracy rather than attempting more number of question. Analyse your previous mock tests, and observe the pattern of number of attempts, number of correct answers and the number of wrong answers. This helps improving the accuracy rate, there by the overall score.


ms : SIR IN MY AIMCAT SCORES WERE 81,102,135 WHICH WERE INCREASING BUT IN 1717 I GOT 123 ONLY
ankur : don't worry about score. the paper if tougher will give you lower score. look at your percentile. that should be improving.


ankit : CAN YOU ELABORATE OPTIMAL EST TAKING STRATEGY, SO THAT NO EASY RC OR PROBLEM IN GENERAL LEFT OUT. I AM MISSING HERE?
ankur : strategy is simply time management. try solving easy questions first. easy means those that take less time (that's the only logical definition in this exam). so when you come across a lengthy question, skip it and leave it for later. solve all less-time-taking questions first. later, if you have time, solve the lengthy questions. easy rc is not about easy passage only but also easy question. focus on solving all direct questions. if the passages have lots of indirect and inferential questions, leave them for later.


vanya : @TARUNNUMRAZA- COULD YOU PLEASE ADVISE ON THE APPROACH FOR PARAJUMBLES AND ODD SENTENCE OUT. I AM NOT ABLE TO SOLVE ANY QUESTION FROM THIS AREA.
tarannumraza : For parajumbles,pick the most general sentence introduceing the topic as the first sentence.Try to form pairs with the help of- conjunctions,pronouns,chronological order,cause& effect,problem& solution,full form short form ...Then arrange these into a logical sequence.Can be attempted with good accuracy with practice.


alex : @FEROZ: I HAVE COMPLETED THE SMS BARRING A FEW TOPICS.. I HAVENT DONE THE SECTIONAL TESTS IN SHP
feroz : We'd suggest you start taking sectional tests on your SHP...these are meant to increase your speed and accuracy...analyze them thoroughly and work on your shortcomings...its just about a matter of 5-6 more questions which will take you to 55-60 marks...All the best


bhcb6o100 : DO I NEED TO BE AN AVID READER FOR SCORING GOOD MARKS IN VA/RC?
prajnanray : Preferably


ds : HI MA'M/SIR I AM FACING PRBLM IN VA SECTION, READING INDIAN EXPRESS ON DAILY BASIS STILL NOT ABLE TO INCREASE SCORE IN VA SECTION WHAT SHOULD BE MY APPROACH FROM NOW?
ankur : you need to have more solving practice. only newspaper or only article will give you reading ability but not question solving practice. solve the tests that you have in the book, on the sectional tests homepage. that will make you think on how to solve, and not just how to read.


ds : HI MA'M/SIR I AM FACING PRBLM IN VA SECTION, READING INDIAN EXPRESS ON DAILY BASIS STILL NOT ABLE TO INCREASE SCORE IN VA SECTION WHAT SHOULD BE MY APPROACH FROM NOW?
swapnila : Apart from reading newspapers,it might also help to read on diverse subject topics.You can check the RC links uploaded on the SHP.


alex : @FEROZ: NO MATTER HOW MUCH I COMPLETE FROM THE SMS.. I FEEL THAT ITS INCOMPLETE AND START SOLVING THEM AGAIN.
ankur : don't do that. move to tests on the SHP.


ms : I AM UNABLE TO SOLVE INFERENCE BASED RC QUESTION WHAT I SHOULD DO RATHER THAN SOLVING CR
ankur : answered by me today earlier. check chat archives for the same.


raj : HELLO
prajnanray : Hi what's your query?


ankit_95 : SIR IN EVERY AIMCAT I LEAVE QUESTIONS RELATED TO PERMUTATION AND COMBINATION AND PROBABILITY CONSIDERING THAT I AM WEAK AT THESE TOPICS. SHOULD I TRY TO STRENGTHEN THESE TOPICS OR SHOULD I ONLY CONCENTRATE ON MY STRONG TOPICS
pradeepgoswami : you should revise P&C concepts. Regarding probability relatively a very few questions have been asked from this in recent years


raj : HELLO MY AIMCAT 1717 SCORE IS 110 (VA 34, DI 33 AND QA 43)
prajnanray : What's your query?


raju : SIR WHENEVER I DO DATA INTERPRETATION ON TEST I AM UNABLE TO SOLVE
vinnayraj : every data interpretation question seems completely new when you attempt them in the test...but the ideas tested in any di are among ratios,percentages and comparison of values and fractions and a thorough processing of the data values..students get scared and panic when they look at a question and thats the main reason why they are unable to solve..if you spend focused few minutes ideas will strike..also look at the questions before you solve as the questions may be easy even the set looks tough.and most of the times you dont need to process the entire data.only relevant details pertinent to the questions will do..


raj : WHAT SHOULD I DO TO INCREASE THE SCORE FURTHER AS MY SCORE IS STAGNANT AT 110 TO 120 MARKS
ankur : don't worry about score. the paper if tougher will give you lower score. look at your percentile. that should be improving.


raju : WHAT TO DO FOR BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF DATA INTERPRETATION QUESTION
vinnayraj : every data interpretation question seems completely new when you attempt them in the test...but the ideas tested in any di are among ratios,percentages and comparison of values and fractions and a thorough processing of the data values..students get scared and panic when they look at a question and thats the main reason why they are unable to solve..if you spend focused few minutes ideas will strike..also look at the questions before you solve as the questions may be easy even the set looks tough.and most of the times you dont need to process the entire data.only relevant details pertinent to the questions will do..


iim1717 : HELLO SIR I AM FACING PROBLEM IN RCVA AND QA...I SOLVE AROUND 15 QUES AND ONLY 7 CORRECT N RC...AND IN QA 5 CORRECT OUT OF 10...MY ACCURACY LEVEL IS VERY LOW
tarannumraza : As I repeatedly say that just because you have read an RC doesn't mean that you have to attempt all the questions...those questions where you are confused about 2 options & don't know which to mark should be left.It is also important that you understand what has been asked - whether it is a direct question or you need to find a deeper meaning...if it is a direct question then the options that have been inferred are to be eliminated & vice versa Practice is the key.


kuku : CAN YOU PLEASE ADVISE IF QUESTIONS ON OCTAL SYSTEM SEPTINARY SYSTEM ARE WIDELY ASKED?
pradeepgoswami : they are seldom asked in CAT


ad : SIR,WILL THOROUGHLY PREPARING ALL THE TOPICS COVERED IN THE CLASSES WILL BE ENOUGH?BECAUSE EVERYTHING IN THE BOOKLET IS NOT TAUGHT IN THE CLASS
govindrajan : All the topics will be covered in the class room. Practice each topic thoroughly as and when the topic is covered in the class.


ms : SIR I CAN SOLVE ALMOST ALL QUESTION OF DI LR BUT MY SPEED IS SLOW HOW I CAN IMPROVE IT SPECIALLY IN DI
feroz : How many questions can you typically solve in one hour if the level of difficulty is at par with that of with AIMCATs?


mr : SIR HOW TO PREPARE FOR SOLVING PASSAGE IN SHORT DURATION IN AIMCAT
prajnanray : Practise as many questions as you can. Eventually you will do it in quicker time


raj : MY AIMCAT SCORE IS STAGNANT BETWEEN 110 TO 120. WHERE SHOULD I FOCUS MORE IN ORDER TO INCREASE MY SCORE. MY AIMCAT SCORE FOR 1717 IS 110 (VA 34, QA 43 AND DI 33)
govindrajan : Two things that you need to check are: Have you covered all topics while practicing? Because there could be a situation that you are coming across more questions in the mock tests from the topics that you have not practiced yet. Secondly, what is your accuracy rate?. Check these two, you will find lot of scope to improve your score.


aim : HELLO TEACHERS! GOT 12 CORRECT, 5 WRONG IN RC & 3 CORRECT, 3 WRONG IN VA, MAKING A POOR TOTAL OF 40 MARKS IN SECTION-1. PLS DO TELL HOW SHOULD I ENHANCE MY READING SPEED, PROVIDED THAT I DO NOT COMPROMISE WITH ACCURACY?? FROM PREVIOUS 6 AIMCATS, I HAVE BEEN LEAVING 1 RC PASSAGE AND 3-4 VA QUESTIONS CONTINOUSLY. ALSO I TEND TO DO SOME SORT OF REGRESSION WHILE DOING RCS. PLEASE DO GUIDE.
ankur : first of all - a score of 40 is not poor - look at the percentile that you are getting. that is more important. secondly - work on comprehension, without worrying about speed. speed will come automatically, over a period of time, as a result of good comprehension. don't worry about speed, it happens. you can work on it by doing timed tests. (i have written in an earlier answer about timed tests; read from there).


kriti : FOR A STUDENT WHO HAS BEEN PREPARING SINCE JANUARY..WHAT SHOULD BE THE TARGET PERCENTILE AT THIS POINT?
vinnayraj : there is no single answer to this question and the question itself is not so important..make sure you are thorough with all the fundamentals and you are continually fine tuning your test taking strategy and you are improving...i hope the scores are satisfactory though..


akki : DEAR SIR, IN QA SECTION I ATTEMPTED 10 QUESTIONS RIGHT, BUT WHILE ANALYSING I DID 6 MORE QUESTIONS WHICH I COULD NOT DO IN AIMCAT. PS SUGGEST ME SOLUTION?
pradeepgoswami : you should keep revising the basics and practice more and more. Once you get familiar you will be in a better position to identify the concepts involved


ms : 1717 WAS THE FIRST AIMCAT IN WHICH MY PERCENTILE DECREASE BUT I FOUND THAT TOTAL NO. OF STUDENT APPEAR THIS TIME WERE LESS SO IS STRENGTH MATTERS IN PERCENTILE
vinnayraj : it obviously does..so dont worry if it is an occasional dip...your rank must not have changed if your performance has not dipped..


lohit : HELLO SIR IN AIMCAT 1717 MY SCORE WAS 50 I AM NOT ABLE TO SCORE MORE THAN 50 WHAT SHOULD I DO? MY ACCURACY LEVEL IS 50% OTHERWISE I COULD HAVE SCORED BETTER AND YES I HAVE NOT EVEN STARTED THE BOOKS PROVIDED
feroz : The answer lies in your question only. We'd suggest you practice sincerely from the material provided.


mr : SIR HOW TO MANAGE TIME EASILY FOR SESSION OF AIMCAT ONLINE
ankur : allocate time proportionately to the marks of the sections.


arpit : SIR I SCORED 130 IN THIS AIMCAT.IS IT GOOD OR AVG?CAN I EXPECT ABOVE 99%ILE IN CAT AND WHAT SHOULD BE THE NO OF HOURS I NEED TO PUT EVERYDAY PREPARING?
ankur : look at your percentile. anyone scoring more than 70%ile now can get 99%ile or more, provided (s)he works hard.


malvika : HOW MANY MINUTES SHOULD BE SPENT ON ANSWERING EACH QUESTION IN THE 3 SECTIONS RESPECTIVELY?
govindrajan : It is not how many minutes that you spend on each question that you should look at. You should pay attention on finding out the questions that you can answer. Once you answer them attempt the other questions in the remaining time without spoiling your accuracy rate.


tanmay : SIR I AM NOT ABLE TO INCREASE MY AIMCAT SCORE. MY LAST 5 AIMCATS SCORES ARE (65,84,84,90,90).I AM STUCK IN THE RANGE OF 80-90'S. MY LEAST SCORE IS IN VARC AND IS BETWEEN 24-30 IN ALL THESE AIMCATS. I AM DEMOTIVATED WITH THESE OVERALL LOW SCORES IN AIMCATS. PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO INCREASE SCORE. ITS JUST 3 MONTHS FROM NOW AND I AM FEELING GREAT PRESSURE
ankur : dont look at score. that can go up in an easy test on its own and go down on its own in a tough test. look at percentile. secondly, focus on SM booklets. solve them first for improving basics. then sectional tests and then mock CATs (SAMCATs and AIMCATs).


raj : THIS IS AN OFFTOPIC QUESTION BUT WOULD REALLY WANT TO KNOW.MY PROFILE IS HSC 90% SSC 76% BE 56% AND I HAVE EXPERIENCE OF 1.5 YEARS AND CATEGORY GENERAL. WHICH ALL IIMS SHOULD I TRY FOR (REEALISTIC CHANCES CONSIDERING MY LOW GRAD PERCENTAGE)
ankur : for now expect all provided you get a good percentile in the CAT. IIMs keep changing criteria every year and what was applicable last year may or may not be applicable this year.


megadeath : SIR MY AVERAGE IN AIMCATS IS AROUND 71 % WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR AND MY ACCURACY BEING AROUND 56%
govindrajan : Reduce the number of attempts and make sure that whatever questions that you attempting you come out with correct answers. Check whether you have covered all topics while practicing? Because there could be a situation that you are coming across more questions in the mock tests from the topics that you have not practiced yet. Check these two, you will find lot of scope to improve your score.


kunalss : IN THIS AIMCAT, I GOT ONLY 1 CORRECT PARA JUMBLES OUT OF 4. WHAT SHOULD I DO FOR PARA JUMBLES??
prajnanray : Practise practise practise...


aim : SIR, I HAVE BEEN CONSISTENTLY GETTING 55-65 PERCENTILE IN AIMCATS. THIS TIME IN AIMCAT 1717, I SCORED 83 PERCENTILE. PLS DO GUIDE ME HOW CAN I TAKE THIS SCORE ABOVE 90 PERCENTILE?
ankur : in the previous answer to you, the suggestions will work for increasing it to beyond 90 and beyond 95 too.


shailu : SIR I HAVE THIS PROBLEM WITH THE LR SECTION THAT WHILE DURING AIMCAT AM NOT ABLE TO SOLVE A PARTICULAR QUESTION BUT IT WAS DOABLE FOR ME WHEN I DID IT AT HOME POST AIMCAT.
vinnayraj : this happens to most students..the explanation is-pressure.try spending a couple of minutes more in the set you think you have figured out how to start and which looks solvable..also make sure you dont spend too much time on a very difficult set..


ankit_95 : SIR I FIND VARC SECTION OF SAMCATS TO BE DIFFICULT THAN VARC SECTION OF AIMCATS. IS THERE REALLY A DIFFERENCE IN DIFFICULTY LEVEL
feroz : The level of difficulty is relative in nature. A few of the SAMCATs might be higher difficulty level vis a vis a few AIMCATs and vice-versa


ad : SIR, I MEANT THAT DURING THE 5 CLASSES OF GEO WHAT IS TAUGHT IN THE CLASS IS NOT ENOUGH TO SOLVE EVERY QUES IN THE BOOKLET(SAME IS THE CASE WITH NUMBERS).
pradeepgoswami : you can ask for doubts sessions to clarify your doubts in the questions you can't solve. Moreover the classroom sessions must be followed by a regular practice sessions at home to get better results


raj : WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO INCREASE THE CONFIDENCE LEVEL IN QUESTION SOLVING IN DI AND LR SECTION AS EVERY TIME IT SEEMS A MATTER OF LUCK TO GET A SET CORRECT IN THE MOCK?
prajnanray : Practice


tushki : SIR IN AIMCAT I CANT ABLE TO DO RC SECTION ACCURATELY IN RC SECTION 9 QUES ARE CORRECT AND 13 QUES INCORRECT ! PLEASE TELL HOW CAN I IMPROVE RC SECTION ??
tarannumraza : Read a little slowly.skip the questions you are not sure of...just because you have read a passage doesn't mean you have to attempt all the questions.Guessing at the answers is wrong...go through the passages given in both the sets as well as online sectional tests...these take you through a gamut of topics.Firm paragraph summaries in your mind as you read a passage.this helps you link the ideas & hence in the complete understanding.


mr : SIR FROM WHERE TO PRACTISE PASSAGE FOR AIMCATS FROM ONLINE OR FROM BOOK SO GET BETTER BENEFITS
swapnila : Online would be better than books.


sushant : HOW TO PREPARE FOR VA AND RC.I TRY TO SOLVE BASIC HANDOUTS REGULARLY.BUT IN MOCKS,I DON'T FIND IT USEFUL
feroz : Apart from HOs, start taking tests available on your SHP. A thorough analysis post that will help you immensely


yes123 : BEST TIME TO START REVISION?
vinnayraj : instead of keeping it to the end a periodic revision of a few concepts would be more beneficial..you should complete your revision a couple of months before the test..


jaideep : SIR,DO WE GET PERCENTILE IN SAMCATS
ankur : no. but you get an idea of the cutoffs.


kriti : SIR SHOULD WE FOCUS MORE ON OUR WEAK AREAS OR SHOULD WE FOCUS ON COMPLETING THE STUDY MATERIAL BECAUSE MY QUANT SECTION IS STRONG BUT COMPLETION OF STUDY MATERIAL OF QUANT CONSUMES LOT OF TIME?
govindrajan : If you are able to score well in quant, focus on weak areas while practicing. Because you need to perform well in all areas. Being strong in one area helps you in maximizing your score, but cannot help in getting through the test unless you clear cut offs in all sections.


raju : SIR AS THREE MONTH LEFT AND I AM JUST A TYRO SO WHAT SHOULD BE THE STRATEGY FOR GETTING GOOD MARKS IN LESS TIME
ankur : solve SM booklets first. then class handouts. then sectional tests. and then SAMCATs and AIMCATs


ms : SIR IN QUANT MY MARKS ARE ALWAYS 40 ABOVE BUT ACCURACY VARIES DOES IT MATTER IN ACTUAL CAT
pradeepgoswami : Yes it does , you should concentrate on your percentiles and not on your absolute scores


sara : HELLO HAVING 2 YEAR ACADEMIC GAP SO CAN YOU TELL ME THAT OS THERE ANY NEGATIVE AFFECT IN INTERVIEW FOR IIFT FINAL SELECTION PLZ TELL ME....
vinnayraj : if there is strong reason for the gap that can be explained convincingly and you ace the test and do your interview well you will be able to make it..


lohit : SIR, SOME QUESTIONS SEEM THAT THEY ARE GOING TO BE RIGHT BUT THEY GET WRONG , SO WHAT SHOULD BE MY STRATEGY TO ATTEND HOW MANY QUESTIONS IN EACH SECTION?
ankur : don't have a target number of attempts. attempt as much as you can in the given time. if questions go wrong, look at why you went wron. make sure not to make those mistakes again.


bhcb6o100 : I HAVE BEEN STUDYING FOR CAT SINCE JAN 2016. MY SORE COMES AROUND 100 IN AIMCATS. I AM SCORING VERY BAD IN VA/RC SECTIONS. WILL I BE ABLE TO IMPROVE THIS SECTION IN 3 MONTHS FROM NOW? I AM VERY DEPRESSED. I ALWAYS THINK IF I HAVE NOT ABLE TO IMPROVE MYSELF TILL NOW WHAT MAGIC WILL I DO IN 3 MONTHS
tarannumraza : You can definitely better your understanding & score.Not with magic but with a lot of practice & analysis of wrongly attempted questions.Dont try to answer all the questions.dont read the RCs in too much of a hurry.That will result in poor understanding leading to poor accuracy.There is ample time,so no need to lose heart.sit with your VA faculty for more help


akki : DEAR SIR, GOOD EVENING, IN RC AND VA SECTION I AM UNABLE TO GO THROUGH ALL PASSAGES AND DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME VA. PLS SUGGEST ME AND ALSO TELL HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD BE GIVEN TO RC AS WELL AS VA SECTION DISTINCTLY?
ankur : work on sectional tests to increase discipline and the ability to stick to time. for RC and VA, since the number of marks can vary, please allocate time that is proportionate to the marks of the section and sub-section. e.g. if there are 34 questions of english out of 100 in the test then you should devote 34% of 3 hours to english. let us also assume that 10 va and 24 RC are present. so 10% of 3 hours goes to VA and 24% of 3 hours goes to RC. but let us assume thatn cat changes to 2.5 hours. english is 35% of the paper. there are 18% VA and 17% RC questions. in that case, 17% of 2.5 hours to RC and 18% of 2.5 hours to VA. normally time is left at the end of the VA. transfer the balance time to RC.


sushant : SIR,WHAT SHOULD BE OUR APPROACH WHEN WE START WITH ANY SECTION IN MOCKS ? SHOULD WE START WITH THE FIRST QUESTION ?
vinnayraj : not necessarily..but you will be obviously looking at the first question..if it turns out to be easy solve it.otherwise move to the next question..make sure you solve all the easy questions...


prashant : MY SCORE IN AIMCAT1717 IS 114; QA-62,DILR-26,VARC-26; I AM ALWAYS DISSAPOINTED WITH MY DILR N VARC SCORES COZ WHILE ANALYSIS I M ALWAYS ABLE TO SOLVE MOST OF THE SETS N MOST OF THE RCS COMFORTABLY..WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
ankur : you need to have the habit of timed tests. try sectional tests from the homepage to improve exam setting comfort.


shailu : AND SIR ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU THAT EVEN AFTER COMPLETING A PARTICULAR CHAPTER IN QUANT I TOOK THE SECTIONAL TEST. BUT THE QUESTIONS WERE QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THE ONES GIVE IN THE MATERIAL.( TOOK GEOMETRY TEST)
pradeepgoswami : That's how they are designed. It better equips a student to tackle all types of questions in the test


ms : I GET PROBLEM IN INFERENCE QUESTION OF RC WHAT TO DO
prajnanray : Talk to your FM and understand the problem and then practise


krish : SIR/MADAM, IF I WANT TO TARGET 99.5+ IN CAT WHAT SCORE IN THIS AIMCAT WOULD BE SUFFICIENT?
vinnayraj : if you are consistently scoring above 95 percentile and you keep improving there is no reason why you cannot go beyond 99.5 percentile in the cat..a performance in just one test is not a good indicator..


tanmay : MY SCORE IN VARC IS IN RANGE OF 25-30 IN ALL AIMCATS. I AM NOT FOND OF READING. EVEN WHEN I TRY HARD TO READ MY LOOSE MY INTEREST AFTER SOME TIME. I HAVE WEAK VOCABULARY AND I CANT REMEMBER THE MEANINGS OF WORDS WHICH I HAVE SEARCHED AND STUDIED. TAKING ABOUT AIMCATS, TILL I REACH TO 4-5 PARA I JUST LOOSE WHAT I HAVE READ IN 1-2 PARA. HOW I SHOULD RESOLVE THIS ISSUE
ankur : underline tough words of a passage while reading. check meanings from a good dictionary and give the article a second reading. it will give you comprehension and will help you remember the words too. takes care of interest too since you lose it due to lack of comprehension.


amit : WHENEVER I USED TO SOLVE MOST OF THE TIME THE ANSWER WHICH I USED TO MARK GETS INCORRECT AND I AM NOT ABLE TO CLEAR CUT OFF OF VA?/RC SECTION
tarannumraza : That means that either you have not understood the passage or have not understood what is being asked In either case,if you indulge in guesswork it costs you dearly.practise. from your booklets,sit with your faculty to analyse those RCs where your accuracy has been very low of


raghav : LR N DI QSTNS ARE TOTALLY DFFRNT FROM SM BOOKLETS ND HANDOUTS..WHENEVR I GIVE AIMCAT EACH TIME I FIND TOTALLY DIFFERENT SETS HOW TO DEAL WITH IT??
pradeepgoswami : That's how they are designed . It helps a student to be familiar with all the available types of questions so that one doesn't get surprised on the day of CAT


ggcb6o166 : SIR HOW MANY QUES OF QUANT SHOULD BE DONE AMONG 34 TO GET A 99 PERCENTILE?
vinnayraj : very difficult to answer and futile to try...it purely depends on the difficulty level and the composition of the section and on the performance on the fellow candidates..instead of worrying about that focus on figuring out the best test taking strategy and ensure you dont miss a single easy question..keep it simple..in a difficult test you are required to solve fewer questions to achieve the same percentile as opposed to what is required in an easy test...


raju : SIR I AM ON 4TH YEAR OF ENGINEERING AND I AM UNABLE TO GET ENOUGH TIME FOR PREPARATION ,WHAT SHOULD I DO ,SHOULD I PREPARE AFTER COMPLETION OF MY GRADUATION
vinnayraj : try as much as you can without losing focus on the graduation studies..and you never know,if all goes well on the d day you may be pleasantly surprised with the results..since you have prepared this year you should take the test..


sushant : WHAT SHOULD BE THE IDEAL TIME TO FINISH BASICS ?
pradeepgoswami : Depends on how long you have been preparing for CAT. Ideally you must have covered all the basics by August end


amit : HOW TO CHOOSE THE EASY SET IN DI N LR.I END UP SOLVING DIFFICULT ONES. WHEN I GO THROUGH THE QUESTIONS, I MISINTERPRET THE EASY ONES AS DIFFICULT
govindrajan : You need to practice more. This will help you in understanding the questions better and thus your ability to identify the ones that consume time.


99percentile : SIR,MY SCORE IN AIMCAT17 IS 64; QA-31,DILR-28,VARC-5,
ankur : so what is ur question?


ds : WHAT DOES CLEARING CUTOFF MEAN AS FAR AS AIMCATS ARE CONCERNED??
vinnayraj : crossing 85 percentile...


krish : IS IT NECESSARY TO SOLVE ALL MEDIUM LEVEL QUESTION? CAN WE LEAVE FEW?
pradeepgoswami : You solve the questions you can and leave the rest


ng : SIR,IS IT ADVISABLE TO TAKE NMAT BEFORE CAT OR AFTER CAT
vinnayraj : depends on the level of preparation and also on how many times you are planning to take the test..if you are well prepared by that time you can take nmat before cat and the experience will help you do well in the exam...


aspirant94 : WHAT DOES A CUTOFF AND PERCENTILE MEAN ACTUALLY? PLEASE EXPLAIN ME
prajnanray : Percentile is the percentage of people who have scored below you... Cutoff is the percentage of the laSt person called for the next stage.


sid19 : HOW TO IMPROVE SCORE IN RC ?
ankur : read a lot. solve material from sm booklet and then sectional tests and them mock CATs (SAMCATs and AIMCATs).


ad : SIR,HOW TO IMPROVE MY VOCAB ? I AM HAVING TROUBLE IN FULLY UNDERSTANDING THE RCS BECAUSE OF MY WEAK VOCABULARY
ankur : underline tough words of a passage while reading. check meanings from a good dictionary and give the article a second reading. it will give you comprehension and will help you remember the words too.


funny : SIR I SEE VERY DIFFICULTIES IN Q.A WHAT SHOULD I DO?
prajnanray : Talk to your FM and practise after understanding the problem


blacky : SOR MY SCORE IN AIMCAT 17 IS 79 PERCENTILE.IN ALL OTHERS I GOT AROUND 93 .CAN U TELL ME THE REASON?
pradeepgoswami : A thorough analysis of your attempts and the accuracy level will tell you why your percentile has dropped. Improve on your accuracy


kartikbaba : SIR, IN LAST A FEW TESTS I AM NOT ABLE TO DO WELL IN DI/LR SECTION. SPECIALLY LR IS MY WEAKEST SECTION AS IT SEEMS TO ME. AS I AM PUTTING UP MY BEST IN LR SECTION PREPARATION, BUT STILL NOT ABLE TO SOLVE THEM TIME BOUND.WHAT SHOULD BE MY STRATEGY?
vinnayraj : try to familiarize yourself with different types of sets in lr and figure how much is an ideal time to be spent on a set in general..go through the sets and pick the easiest one and solve and move to di which seems to be your stronger area...


ggcb6o166 : SIR I AM A COMMERCE STREAM STUDENT AND MY QUANT IS SO WEAK.IS IT POSSIBLE THT IF I WILL DO PREPARATION FRM NOW THN I CAN ACHIEVE A 99 PERCENTILE IN CAT/
feroz : Nothing is impossible! Having said this, to score 99 %ile, it'd require humongous amount of effort from your side. Nevertheless, all the very best!


akki : THANKU ANKUR SIR.
ankur : welcome!


lohit : SIR WE ARE PREPARING FOR CAT SNAP XAT BUT SHOULD WE GIVE NMAT TEST, IS IT GOOD AND OFFERS GOOD PACKAGES, DOES IT HAS GOOD B-SCHOOLS?
vinnayraj : NMIMS is the top b school which takes admission through nmat.it is a good b school and is worth applying to..also it is better to keep ones options open.


kp : SIR I AM NOT ABLE TO GET MY VA QUESTIONS CORRECT..HOW SHOULD I PREPARE TO GET THEM RIGHT
tarannumraza : I assume you mean the RCs as well as the other question types .It helps to consider RCs as open book tests- the answers are there whether directly stated or implied .Read on varied topics.Solving the RC booklets& online sectional tests will help.For the other question types,deal with each one at a time.Devote a few days to parajumbles & odd sentence type questions;the critical reasoning & summary questions will help in tackling RC questions.


purva : GOODEVENING, I'VE JUST GRADUATED. I SPECIALOSED IN ECONOMICS AND HAVE SECURED 74.3%. ALSO I SCORED 7.8/10 IN 10TH STD. AND 73% IN 12TH. WHICH ALL COLLEGES AM I ELIGIBLE FOR?
ankur : you are eligible for almost everything. don't worry about that. work on CAT. that is more important.


chandu : HI SIR..IM NOT ABLE RO CROSS CUTOFFS FOR ALL SECTIONS...EACH TIME A DIFFERENT SECTION CUT OFF...PLS SUGGEST ANYTGING THAT HELPS ME TO CROSS CUTOFF.. IN RECENT AIMCAT..I COULD CROSS VA AND QUANT CUTOFF..LAST AIMCAT ONLY VA I CROSSD CUTOFF..PLS HELP..
ankur : please don't type in ALL CAPS. that is the online equivalent of SHOUTING. cutoff changes from paper to paper based on toughness of the paper. if paper is tougher, cutoff in terms of marks will be lower. so try to get as many marks as you can in the given time. don't target a score, rather attempt as much as you can in the given time.


bhcb6o100 : I HAVE BEEN STUDYING FOR CAT SINCE JAN 2016. MY SORE COMES AROUND 100 IN AIMCATS. I AM SCORING VERY BAD IN VA/RC SECTIONS. WILL I BE ABLE TO IMPROVE THIS SECTION IN 3 MONTHS FROM NOW? I AM VERY DEPRESSED. I ALWAYS THINK IF I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO IMPROVE MYSELF TILL NOW WHAT MAGIC WILL I DO IN 3 MONTHS
ankur : don't lose hope. work on reading practice and question practice. look at what mistakes you made and why. try avoiding them the next time around.


sm : IIMB IS GOING TO CONDUCT CAT THIS YEAR TRUE OR NOT?
vinnayraj : the notification will be out very soon...doesnt really matter who is conducting the exam..


funny : WHAT IS FM SIR??
vinnayraj : faculty member..


binku : DEAR SIR, I AM DEMOTIVATED, AFTER GAVING MY 10HR I CAN NOT GAIN MORE THEN 25 MARKS IN AIMCAT. WHAT SHOULD I DO ??
govindrajan : Do not worry. Keep up the same effort, you will get much better results as you go on practicing like this. Do not let your preparation levels go down. You will definitely gain as you go on practicing. You do not gain anything by worrying.


99percentile : SIR, IN AIMCAT17 I SCORED 64(QA-31,DILR-28,VARC-5)MARKS AND I GOT 52%ILE.VARC IS MY WEAK AREA SO PLEASE KINDLY HELP ME TO GET GOOD MARKS AND PERCENTILE IN THIS AREA AND WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT MY PERFORMANCE IN THIS AIMCAT.PLEASE GIVE ME GOOD SUGGESTIONS TO GET GOOD PERCENTILE.THANK YOU.
ankur : answered by me multiple times today. check archives.


akki : DEAR SIR, WHAT STRATEGY SHOULD WE FOLLOW FOR DI SECTION? THIS TIME I ATTEMPTED ONLY ONE QUESTION IN DI. I FOUND MYSELF UNABLE IN COMREHENDINDING THE QUESTION QUICKLY. PLS SUGGEST RIGHT APPROACH. PLEASE
vinnayraj : there were atleast a couple of manageable sets in this aimcat too especially the office in time out time set..make sure you pick the easy ones initially after going through the test and once you solve a few questions the confidence you gain and the positive energy will help you solve a few more..every data interpretation question seems completely new when you attempt them in the test...but the ideas tested in any di are among ratios,percentages and comparison of values and fractions and a thorough processing of the data values..students get scared and panic when they look at a question and thats the main reason why they are unable to solve..if you spend focused few minutes ideas will strike..also look at the questions before you solve as the questions may be easy even the set looks tough.and most of the times you dont need to process the entire data.only relevant details pertinent to the questions will do.


ad : SIR HOW TO IMPROVE MY READING SPEED AS WELL AS COMPREHENSION ? MY CURRENT SPEED IS 120-130 WPM AND I NOT ABLE TO INCREASE IT AND SOMETIMES I HAVE TO READ THE SAME SENTENCE TWICE OR THRICE TO UNDERSTAND IT .
ankur : dont read many times. tell yourself that you have one chance to understand. that will remove lethargy from the mind. focus on improving comprehension. speed goes up automatically as a result.


amit : SIR I WANT TO ATTEMPT QA B4 DILR . BUT I COULDN'T FIND AN OPTION TO CHANGE THE SEQUENCE. ISN'T IT POSSIBLE?
vinnayraj : not possible..but the sequence should matter as you are anyway expected to have the highest concentration levels and focus for the entire duration of 3 hours..


aspirant94 : CAN A MEDIOCRE STUDENT TRY TO GET A 99 PERCENTILE IF WORKE HRD FROM NOW ON? AM ACTUALLY WEAK AT QUANT SECTION .
pradeepgoswami : Yes it is possible if you work really hard and you are smart while answering the questions in the actual test


sam : SIR, MOST OF MY ANSWERS IN RC/VA SECTION WERE INCORRECT THOUGH THEY SEEMED EASY AT THE TIME OF ATTEMPTING. I AM CONFUSED WHERE DID I GO WRONG THIS TIME ?
ankur : do mistake analysis. read solution and find out why are you making that mistake. avoid it in the future. over a period of time you will become better.


kp : SIR HOW MUCH VARIATION CAN I EXPECT IN THE AIMCAT'S PERCENTILE AND REAL CAT PERCENTILE..NEED A ROUGH IDEA
vinnayraj : generally students tend to score around 10-12 (and in some cases even higher) percentile points higher in cat than their average aimcat percentiles...


vivekr : HELLO SIR, SUPPOSE IN EXAM(IN DI SECTION) ONLY 8 MINS LEFT AND THERE ARE TWO SETS OF DI, BETWEEN THESE TWO ONE IS NON-NEGATIVE TYPE WHILE OTHER IS NEGATIVE TYPE. WHAT SHOULD BE THE CHOICE OF ATTEMPTING BETWEEN THESE TWO? AS, IN NEGATIVE TYPE AS THERE IS SURETY OF GETTING THE ANSWERS, WHILE NON-NEGATIVE REDUCES THE RISK OF NEGATIVE MARKS.
feroz : There can't be a single answer to this. It all depends on the relative toughness of the set. Both the question types have their own +ves and -ves. It's a judgement based call


samarth : HELLO SIR,I AM SATISFIED WITH MY QUANT PREPARATION AND SCORING ABOVE 95 PERCENTILE EACH TIME,BUT I AM FACING DIFFICULTIES IN DI SECTION THOUGH I AM PRACTICING IT ON A REGULAR BASIS.I DNT FEEL CONFIDENT IN DI AS I AM IN QUANT.
feroz : It is just a matter of time and confidence. Keep practicing LRDI, and the moment you start scoring good marks, there'll be no looking back. A small suggestion though - analyze the various AIMCATs' sets thoroughly after solving them for one more time. All the best


vini : SIR MY SCORE IS GOING DOWN IN AIMCAT..HW CAN I IMPROVE THT?
govindrajan : Reduce number of attempts and increase accuracy rate.


ggcb6o166 : SIR SHOULD I GO FOR XAT SNAP NMAT BCZ I AM NT SURE THT I CAN DO IT OR NOT IT IS SO DIFFICULT FR ME
asim : Go ahead, it is good to take more number of exams, if one is keen on doing MBA this year itself.


amit : HOW MANY MOCKS AND SECTIONALS RESPECTIVELY SHOLUD WE GIVE IN A WEEK
govindrajan : It all depends on your preparation levels. Initially pay attention on taking sectional tests. You can start taking more mock tests as you cover more topics while practicing.


tanmay : ANKUR SIR, I HAVE SOLVED THE STUDY MATERIAL OF THE TOPICS WHICH I COVERED AND I HAVE NO PROBLEM IN THAT. BUT IN TEST ENVIRONMENT I AM NOT ABLE TO SOLVE THE QUESTION AND I FORGET THINGS/SHORT TRICKS AND DUE TO WHICH I STUCK IN SOME QUESTIONS ENDING UP TIME AND STILL NOT GETTING CORRECT ANSWER OR IF AT ALL I GET ANSWER ITS ALREADY 3-4 MINUTES
ankur : replicate the test environment at home. when you do that you will face same troubles at home. over a period of time your anxiety will come down.


ng : IS THE BETTER TO TAKE NMAT BEFORE OR AFTER CAT
pradeepgoswami : Doesn't matter when you take it


sam : I GOT 40 PERCENTILE IN AIMCAT 1717. I AM SECURING AVERAGE MARKS IN ALL SECTIONS. HOW CAN I DO THE BEST TO IMPROVE MYSELF ?
ankur : answered by me multiple times today. check archives.


loveguru : SIR, SOME QUESTIONS SEEM THAT THEY ARE GOING TO BE RIGHT BUT THEY GET WRONG , SO WHAT SHOULD BE MY STRATEGY TO ATTEND HOW MANY QUESTIONS IN EACH SECTION?
govindrajan : You need to revise the basic concepts once. Unless you improve on your accuracy attempting more number of questions does not help in improving score.


andy_nuts : AS IIFT NOTIFICATION HAS COME. HOW TO PREPARE TO CLEAR THIS EXAM
prajnanray : Do the basics and practise question papers of IIFT


ankit : SIR, MY SCORES KEEP ON FLUCTUATING, ESPECIALLY IN VA SECTION. IS THERE SOMETHING THAT I MIGHT BE MISSING IN MY PREPARATION?
ankur : dont worry about fluctuations in score. focus on percentile.


akki : THANKU VINNAY RAJ SIR.
vinnayraj : welcome..


kartikbaba : I DON'T KNOW WHETHER I DID IT RIGHT. BUT I ATTEMPTED ALL RC QUES.IN THIS AIMCAT BUT ONE.AND I GOT CONSIDERABLY GOOD SCORE OF 96.17 %ILE IN RC SECTION. AM I NEEDED TO CHANGE MY STRATEGY OF ATTEMPTING ALL QUES. OR SHOULD I WORK MORE UPON INCREASING MY ACCURACY WITH SAME QUES ATTEMPTS.
tarannumraza : This will depend on whether you find the given RCs easy to read or not.If you face difficulty in understanding the tone,style and approach of the author towards the topic then attempting all the questions may be harakiri...Hope you keep up the good score.practise other question types too


andy_nuts : I FEEL SAMCATS ARE TOUGHER THAN AIMCATS. CAN SOMEONE HELP ME ON THIS?
prajnanray : What if they are tougher?


kartikbaba : I DON'T KNOW WHETHER I DID IT RIGHT. BUT I ATTEMPTED ALL RC QUES.IN THIS AIMCAT BUT ONE.AND I GOT CONSIDERABLY GOOD SCORE OF 96.17 %ILE IN RC SECTION. AM I NEEDED TO CHANGE MY STRATEGY OF ATTEMPTING ALL QUES. OR SHOULD I WORK MORE UPON INCREASING MY ACCURACY WITH SAME QUES ATTEMPTS.
ankur : it may work in this test but if test is too difficult then it might backfire. if you answer all in that test, and get many wrong, you get bad score. or if you are not able to attempt many then you become demotivated. don't have a target of attempting all. have a target of attempting as many as you can in the given time. if paper is tough, it will save you as you don't attempt more then necessary. if paper is easy then you can attempt many more without getting complacent.


purva : GOOD EVENING, I'VE JUST GRADUATED. I SPECIALISED IN ECONOMICS AND HAVE SECURED 74.3%. ALSO I SCORED 7.8/10 IN 10TH STD. AND 73% IN 12TH. WHICH ALL COLLEGES AM I ELIGIBLE FOR? PLEASE HELP ME OUT HERE AS I DON'T KNOW WHICH COLLEGE I'M ELIGIBLE FOR.
feroz : If the question is about B-School entrance exams, then you are eligible to write all the 'big ones' like CAT, XAT, NMAT, IIFT etc


ad : SIR , I AM SCORING 80-85% IN AIMCATS , WITH CONSISTENT IMPROVEMENT IN QA AND DILR BUT NOT IN VARC , MY %ILE IN VARC FOR THE LAST 5 AIMCATS IS 96,89,60,55,81,79.PLEASE SUGGEST A STUDY PLAN FOR VARC
ankur : solve SM booklets first. then class handouts. then sectional tests. and then SAMCATs and AIMCATs


ayushi : SIR IN AIMCAT 1717 I SCORED 133 BT IN QA I SCORED ONLY 40 AND MY ACCURACY WAS ALSO NOT GOOD. HOW DO I IMPROVE MY ACCURACY SINCE WHILE DOING THE QUESTIONS I M SURE OF D ANSWER. ALSO MOSTLY NON MCQ QUESTIONS ARE WRONG
asim : Once you have taken few AIMCATs, analyze the following aspects Keep track of your accuracy, make sure you target around 90% accuracy in QA/DI/LR and around 80% accuracy in VA/RC. Figure out the kind of mistakes you are committing, are they conceptual clarity based mistakes or due to miscalculation/silly mistakes and then take corrective action. Find out list of chapters/model types which are troubling you in the AIMCATs and then work on basics of those areas, practice loads of questions from these areas.


pranvi : SHOULD A PERSON WHO ASPIRES TO BECOME AN MBA ,HAVE INBUILT MANAGERIAL SKILLS OR ,WILL A PERSON BE ABLE TO LEARN IN COURSE OF COMPLETING ONE'S MBA?
feroz : A few ones are inherent and the other ones are acquired. For instance, leadership would be an inherent quality of a few while for others it might not be a natural trait


andy_nuts : DO I NEED TO SOLVE ALL THE QUESTION IN AIMCATS. WHAT WOULD BE A GOOD ATTEMPT HOW TO HANDLE TIME PRESSURE
vinnayraj : if you are not randomly marking the answers and are able to solve the questions ,solve as many as you can if you are confident about your answers..you dont need to solve all the questions to get a very good percentile and it is also very difficult to solve all the questions.and having a preset target of attempts adds undue pressure..so approach the test with an open mind...


akki : DEAR SIR/MADAM, HOW IMPORTANT IS LEARNING VOCAB FROM CUE CARDS? IS IT IMPORTANT FROM NOW ON? IS LEARNING MEANING OF WORDS IS IMPORTANT OR LEANING ITS SYNONYMS AND ANTONYMS? PLS SUGGEST.
ankur : focus less on them now. focus more on reading.

govindrajan : Please go through the information provided in the following link. http://www.time4education.com/CAT-MBA/NMAT.aspx


amit : HOW TO PROCEED WITH DI? I SOLVED THE MATERIAL TWICE, BUT STILL NOT CONFIDENT IN AIMCATS
vinnayraj : there were atleast a couple of manageable sets in this aimcat too especially the office in time out time set..make sure you pick the easy ones initially after going through the test and once you solve a few questions the confidence you gain and the positive energy will help you solve a few more..every data interpretation question seems completely new when you attempt them in the test...but the ideas tested in any di are among ratios,percentages and comparison of values and fractions and a thorough processing of the data values..students get scared and panic when they look at a question and thats the main reason why they are unable to solve..if you spend focused few minutes ideas will strike..also look at the questions before you solve as the questions may be easy even the set looks tough.and most of the times you dont need to process the entire data.only relevant details pertinent to the questions will do


sowmya : SIR WHICHEVER NOTIFICATION RELEASES SOES THE TIME INSTITUTE WILL MAIL THE INFORMATION TO US REGARDING THAT
govindrajan : We make all efforts to send mails to students regarding the notifications.Keep checking the T.I.M.E web site as well. The relevant information is posted there.


ggcb6o166 : IS IT ENOUGH THT IF I WILL DO THE RC FRM TIME MATERIAL ONLY ND AIMCATS OR SAMCATS
swapnila : Should help , provided you also analyse your performance in these AIMCATs.


shraban : I'M A NEW TIME STUDENT, WHERE DOES THE AIMCAT TEST TAKE PLACE?
vinnayraj : contact your center for details..


neha108 : THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM SUBJECT BUT I WANT TO ASK ABOUT IBSAT THEY CALL UP AND ASK FOR ENROLLMENT AND FEES OF R'S 18000 AND I HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING AS SUCH THEY ALSO SAY THEY WILL PROVIDE STUDY KIT F OR EXAM SHOULD I GO FOR IT .
ankur : we suggest you avoid such gimmicks. focus on CAT paper and other similar exams. in IBSAT only a small number of colleges are good and rest are below our recommended list.


venky : HOW TO ANALYSE ONCE AIMCAT RESULTS ARE OUT ?
vinnayraj : firstly try to solve the questions that you were unable to solve in the test and see how many of them you are able to solve.also figure out how many easy questions among them you missed and why you didnt attempt them in the first place..keep a note of that and try to ensure it doesnt repeat in the subsequent tests..also try to look for better solutions to questions that you have already solved..and then go through the solutions provided..compare the average time spent by students on questions with your own time spent..if you have spend excessive time on a few questions try to understand why..also look at how many difficult quesitons you picked and how much time you wasted..try to improve your choices...


akki : DEAR ANKUR SIR, INSTEAD I SOLVED T AND D AND T AND W, SI CI BUT UNABLE TO ANS QUESTIONS IN AIMCATS WHAT I LACKING IN THIS SITUATION. PLEASE SUGGEST?
ankur : solve SM booklets first. then class handouts. then sectional tests. and then SAMCATs and AIMCATs

ankur : please mail at info@time4education.com for the same


scarecrow007 : IN QA, Q95, PLEASE EXPLAIN THE REASON OF REDUCTION OF THE PART EMPTIED BY THE DRAIN FOR CALCULATING THE SPEED OF FILLING PIPE. IS IT BECAUSE OF OVERFLOWING FACTOR?
vinnayraj : the empyting pipe can empty 1/3 part of the tank in 15 minutes..and if the filling pipe is also opened and the empyting pipe is still working it takes 10 minutes to fill the tank..if you take the volume of the tank to be 9 lts, 1/3 of it is 3 litres and emptying pipe empties it 15 minutes and hence it will empty 2 lts in 10 minutes..initially there were 3 lts..so if it empties 2 lts there is 1 lt left.but since the tank is filled the remaining 8 lts are filled by the inlet pipe in the same ten minutes...hence the ratio of filling and empptying is 8/2 which 4/1.


ayushi : SIR SINCE I HAVE RECENTLY JOINED TIME THERE ARE A LOT OF CHAPTERS YET UNDONE. IHAVE CLASSES ONLY IN THE MORNING SO CAN I ATTEND OTHER CLASES. TO SPEED UP MY PREP

ankur : just answered in the prev question.


purva : @FEROZ SIR, AM I ELIGIBLE TO GET ADMISSION IN COLLEGES ACCEPTING CAT SCORE?
ankur : yes you are.


prashant : HELLO,MY AIMCAT SCORES ARE AROUND 110-120; BUT IN SAMCAT IT GOT REDUCED TO 60..I FOUND THAT SAMCATS WERE DIFFICULT N ACCURACY WENT DOWN..DO U RECKON FINISHING LOT 2 MATERIALS FIRST THEN GO FOR SAMCATS?
ankur : yes that would be a good idea.


ng : IDEALLY,HOW MANY HOURS PER DAY SHOULD ONE SPEND ON CAT PREPARATION?
pradeepgoswami : Depends on how much time you can devote and your present level of expertise. Around 5 to 6 hours should suffice


neha108 : SIR RC WAS A VERY TOUGH THIS TIME WAS IT ABOVE CAT LEVEL
govindrajan : CAT difficulty levels may vary. It is better to get exposed to different difficulty levels.


ayushi : CAN YOU SUGGEST AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO ANALYZE MOCK CATS.
pradeepgoswami : Firstly solve all the questions on your own. Try avoiding the temptation to look at the solutions. Next go through the analysis provided ,see to it that you have attempted the relatively easy questions and identify the questions where you unnecessarily spent more time. Keep a tab on your level of accuracy


venky : MY AIMCAT17 SCORE IS 124 (91%).THE TOP SCORER GOT 250 MARKS. THERE ARE MORE THAN 1500 STUDENTS ABOVE ME. HOW CAN I BEAT THEM ? THEY WOULD BE PREPARING TOO.
ankur : try to increase slowly. think of the next AIMCAT in terms of 100 ranks better. don't target rank 1 straightaway. do it in easily digestible chunks.


utkarsh : SIR, I GET ABOVE 30 MARKS IN VERBAL SECTION BUT ALWAYS THE NO. OF RIGHT AND WRONG QUESTIONS ARE ALMOST SAME. HOW WILL I GET BETTER?
ankur : make a list of your mistakes and try to avoid them


hello : WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO INCREASE THE COMPREHENSION SPEED OF A PASSAGE? WHAT SKILLS/ TECHNIQUES SHOULD BE PRACTICED AT HOME?
tarannumraza : Try writing down the paragraph summaries in a single sentence or word .Then see how they are linked to give you the central idea.Not a bad idea to use the rough paper provided for R


davy : SIR,I AM SCORING AROUND 80-85 PERCENTILE OVERALL, AND IM FROM SC BACKGROUND WITH 10TH-77.9%,12TH-94.7%,BTECH-67.73 AND AN WORK EXP OF 9 MONTHS TILL OCT 16....WILL I ABLE TO GET A SEAT IN IIM A,B,C...???

feroz : Not at all. You should focus on all the areas simultaneously. Prepare two areas on a daily basis. This way, you'd be able to cover all the areas


purva : GOODEVENING, I'VE JUST GRADUATED. I SPECIALISED IN ECONOMICS AND HAVE SECURED 74.3%. ALSO I SCORED 7.8/10 IN 10TH STD. AND 73% IN 12TH. WHICH ALL COLLEGES AM I ELIGIBLE FOR GETTING ADMISSIONS ?

ankur : answered by me multiple times today. check archives.


hello : I AM SCORING 90-92 PERCENTILE IN THE VA-RC SECTION.PLEASE SUGGEST TIPS TO IMPROVE
tarannumraza : Good score.To do better,analyse each aimcat.mark the question types where you always go wrong.Work on your weak areas one at time.In VA- RC it takes time for results to show.so keep practicing .all the best !


mayur : PLEASE LET ME KNOW THE BEST BOOKS TO START WITH FOR CAT PREPARATION. I WILL BE DOING SELF-STUDY AND WANT TO CLEAR THIS BY SELF STUDY ONLY.
pradeepgoswami : TIME material is the best. If are hard pressed about an alternate material, you can refer the TRISHNA books (Pearson publication)


ayushi : THNK U...
pradeepgoswami : Welcome


ggcb6o166 : DO WE HAVE SEPERATELY APPLY FOR ALL IIMS ?
vinnayraj : no..if you apply for cat your score is automatically sent to all the iims and based on that if you qualify you will be receiving calls..for other private b schools you need to separately apply..


utkarsh : WHAT GUIDANCE OR STRATEGY WILL YOU GIVE TO A WEAK QUANT STUDENT WHO IS SCORING ABOUT 10 MARKS IN AIMCAT.
pradeepgoswami : Identify the topics where you are strong and attempt the easy questions from them . Next try screening the paper where you have questions with simple concepts and do them. Try making minimum number of mistakes. All the best!


hello : I AM NOT ABLE TO READ ALL THE PASSAGES IN A GIVEN TIME. I USUALLY DEVOTE 15-18 MINUTES FOR VA AND THEN MOVE ON TO RC. BUT IN RC I AM ABLE TO ATTEMPT ONLY 3 PASSAGES(2 PASSAGES WITH 6 QUESTIONS EACH AND ONE PASSAGE WITH 3 QUESTIONS.) WHAT SHOULD I DO SO THAT I AM ABLE TO READ ALL PASSAGES AND INCREASE MY SCORE
ankur : foucs on sectional tests to improve your ability to answer in the given time,.


akki : DEAR SIR, AT THIS POINT OF TIME, HOW MUCH PERCENTILE CAN BE CONSIDERED AS GOOD? PLS ANSWER.
feroz : Which B-school are you targeting? We'd suggest that you aim for the topmost B-schools for which at least 95+ %ile would be required


tg : VINNAYRAJ SIR I AM FACING PROBLEM IN VARC SECTION. MY SCORES IN AIMCATS ARE BELOW 30 IN VARC SECTION AND ACCURACY IS 60%. I JUST TRY TO SOLVE MINIMUM(12-15) QUESTIONS SO THAT MY ACCURACY IMPROVES BUT STILL MY ACCURACY IS NOT IMPROVING. I AM WEAK IN ENGLISH AND I LOOSE INTEREST IN READING. PLEASE PROVIDE MY WITH PROPER AND DETAILED PLAN FROM BASIC LEVEL HOW TO GO WITH VARC AND IMPROVE IT TO A VERY GOOD LEVEL WITH JUST 2-3 MONTHS IN HAND
vinnayraj : firstly your attempts are a little low considering your accuracy..it is possible to attempt a few more questions with thorough analysis..you seem to dislike the section but have to overcome that as soon as possible..look at the bigger picture..try to read articles and material on different subjects on a daily basis..there is no shortcut to solving rcs..many hours of regular reading is a must..you dont need enjoy them greatly or do research on them..be neutral and comprehend to the best of your abilities and answer the questions..the more you read the more you get comfortable and the better your chances of answering questions correctly...also talk your faculty for personalised help..


dheeraj : I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN DOING LRDI QUESTIONS WHILE PRACTICING BUT IN MOCKS I FIND IT DIFFICULT DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINT. WHAT SHOULD I DO TO IMPROVE CONFIDENCE
pradeepgoswami : Practice more and familiar with as many models you can. Maintain a separate note book where you maintain a list of all the various models
