Less than 6 months to CAT20 – ensure more ticks than crosses

CAT-2020 is around 170 days from now, just a little under 6 months! (This assumes CAT is held as per its usual schedule – and that’s what we should be preparing for. Any delay will be a pleasant surprise to make use of.)


Some exams such as the NMAT generally commence earlier, and yet others such as the XAT usually take place much later. 

But the most reputed, most widely accepted MBA entrance exam for 2020 is now almost 170 days away. That’s our likely ride-time to the D-day!

Individuals and teams that excel at Sports often focus on winning small parts of the match to win. For example, by winning more sessions in a Test Match, your chances of winning the Test Match become higher.

Since every day presents an equal opportunity in terms of time, a good way to go about your prep now is to try and make every day count, as a good one. If at the end of the day, you are satisfied with either the effort or the results of that day’s work, tick it off as a good one. Else, cross it out as a bad one. There will be some iffy days, but try and see if they are closer to a tick or a cross.

If at the end of the ride, you have more good days than bad ones, chances are you will be extremely well prepared.

Small steps add up to make great journeys. Just ensure more ticks than crosses on that calendar for the next 6 months.

About the author: Deekshant has sleep-walked through several 100 and 99.9 %iles in practically every section of the CAT. That he is a cricket fan and he writes okay is evident from most of his posts. 1000s of our students swear that he can motivate almost anyone to double his/her percentile through very simple yet powerful inputs. And that’s why every MBAGuru student has direct access to him via mail and Telegram. Oddly, he somehow also finds the time to write songs professionally. And yes … almost missed this … he is an alumnus of IIT Delhi & IIM Cal 🙂
