Every expert advises that the performance of Mock Test is very important. The students should aggressively and constantly keep on taking CAT Mock Test. Then, after the evaluation of the performance in the test, the preparation should be accelerated. On the basis of score in the mock test, the experts are able to predict the percentile of the candidates. The score vs percentile analysis is as below:
- Candidates securing 180 or more marks manage to achieve a percentile of more than 90.
- If the mock test score of candidates is between 140 to 180, then the percentile rage will be 70 to 80.
- Below 140 marks, the percentile will go below 70 which is an alarming situation and the candidates should work harder to succeed.
Increase Attempts, Increase Score
Experts say that the students can increase their score by increasing the number of attempts. Those, who score 180+ in the mock test just need to ensure that they do not miss their chance to crack the exam by missing the sectional cutoff. Candidates scoring 140+ in CAT mock test can secure 90 percentile by working on increasing correct attempt in each section by two. However, this will only work if the candidate will try and decrease their negative answers simultaneously.
Those, who are in the range of 100+ in mock test need work very hard. They need to ensure that they revise the topics and work increasing, at least, 4 correct attempts.
Stay Calm and Confident
It is very important to believe in oneself and their dreams. So, stay composed and confident and just work hard. The success will knock your door anyways.
