  • Bottom Line is that you move from a scenario where you spend 140 seconds on a question to about 100 seconds per question.
  • In the New Version of CAT, there is 180 minutes time limit. Candidates need to build stamina.
  • Stamina can be built only through sustained practice in simulated situations.
  • Candidates are required to work as many Mocks as possible. We suggest you 40-50 Mocks in 6 months.
  • The Most Challenging & probably game-changing element is the “no sectional time limit”. It changes the test from a knowledge checking paradigm to an aptitude checking paradigm.

  • It will include your knowledge, the questions that you have selected.
  • Time Management Skills.
