One thing until now I have noticed that you all have neither asked us any queries nor gave any suggestion. Do I assume that you all have imbibed the skills which we were talking in the past? Ifyes then is the final skill which is very important for your preparation.
Lets see how, when two days back I was talking to IIM – A alumni Ritesh who had passed out in year 2008. As per normal strategy we used to question them what they think is better and what they had done different to bell CAT, but this time I conversed with him that when I used to prepare for Online CAT, my mode of strategy was something like equal time to all subjects. Suddenly he replied no Bhuvanesh you adopted approach which normal students think. My friends if you want to be in different league you have to different from others. Shiv Khera said “Winners don’t do different things they do things differently”. I was charged yes man I am going to get my next X – factor and that too one of the important which is directly related to preparation. At this moment of time students need something worthwhile to adopt. Friends he named this strategy “Linear Approach”. He told me that today also I used to teach some students & you know how I ask them to prepare. I said how I can know; you just started telling your unique strategy. He replied you have good sense of humor. Ritesh jokes apart let’s come to serious business. I ask them to become mad after one thing. I don’t ask them that give equal time like most of the coaching institutes say. For example I asked my students to give only 15 days for DI preparation. I was astonished; we give whole one year with little time on a daily basis for DI, but at the end of the day we aren’t able to get competitive scores in DI. He asked try out, I said practice 10 sets of DI for 15 days. Then you must have practiced 150 sets by that time and pick any paper for DI and check whether you are still able to clear the cut offs or not. I got his method, if you are running exhausted so much in a particular technique that even you don’t have to revise that particular technique again. Same for the Quant or Verbal section if you fear No system/Geometry practice No system/ Geometry for 5 to 10 days. Do you think practicing these topics for 5 to 10 days are you going to leave any good concept or question in the market. No simply because allotted time is more than that & you will going to achieve best state what you people can never think off. Same in the verbal if you fear Para jumbles or FIB’s then practice them for 5 to 10 days. After practicing them for couple of days you can cover at least 500 Q’s. Still you think you need more practice. Yes friends after that you also don’t need any test series also to compare yourself with others. If you think you have done your homework with honesty then you will come out with flying colors.
Friends don’t forget to use linear approach, see in 15 days we can cover 1/3rd course of CAT and only two sections to go and what do you think how much time still you need. Two months more or 3. Those have started their preparation just now, do not have to panic they have good time to bell one of the easiest exam. Hats off to Ritesh who has given good strategy to follow at the moment of heat & especially for students who are worrying so much.
So friends don’t forget to read last article for X – Factor next week which can actually topple your personality upside down & will make you worthwile to speak in front of crowd. Do give your valuable suggestions in the form of comment so that we can know whether we’ve been able to fulfill your needs or not.
