Strategies for Cracking the MBA Exams

CAT training institutes in Delhi have developed several strategies, using which, candidates can achieve success in this year's examination. If you too are planning to appear for MBA exams in India, then read on; we have some valuable information for you.
1. Duration versus concentration- Majority of the toppers of previous years' entrance tests have reiterated their belief that it does not matter how long you have been preparing for the entrance test, but of how much relevance your studied matter is to the current exam scenario. The key to cracking the MBA exams is to appear for hundreds of mock tests and analyzing them thoroughly. The analysis of mocks can be quite tricky because of the fact that there are two ways of approaching them: a right technique and a wrong one. Naturally candidates need to be aware of the right solutions.
2. Chalking out a timetable and sticking to it-Majority of the CAT training institutes in Delhi are advising and urging students, especially the busy professionals, to devote at least five hours of study each day for success in the exam. You must find out a plan that works for you and stick to it. This includes finding out your strength and weaknesses and devising methods of reinforcing and correcting them respectively. There is no 'one-size-fits -all' solution and you must do what suits you the best.
3. You also need to take both, the full length and the sectional MBA exams. This will help you arrive at a suitable strategy and know where your weaknesses lie. Even if you have not completed few portions of the syllabus, you need to start appearing for the mock tests. Solve at least one test daily: it could be the whole test, or chapter based one, so that you can work on the improvements over the weekend.
4. CAT training institutes in Delhi also insist that students solve the MBA exam papers from the previous years. This will give students an idea regarding the difficulty level of the exams and also help one to prepare better. The key here is to solve different questions and first focus only on the basics; then one can move onto the more difficult parts. Naturally, one must focus on quality rather than quantity. This means that: it is essential you solve few complex problems rather than 100 easy ones.
5. Analysis is also very important. You might have given hundreds of mock tests but your work remains incomplete if you do not analyze them. You should also have a good coach/teacher/ mentor who will help you with this task. Analysis of mocks will help students become aware of their mistakes, understand concepts and also reduce errors in the actual MBA exams.
