Exactly 3 months before the exam day. I started my preparations. I actually used to spend a lot of time doing time pass which is why in my Mock CAT’s, I used to get around 65 percentile. I got serious as THE day came closer and started solving a few MOCK tests. TIME test series is big help and excellent exam preparatory. Honestly, no strengths and weaknesses. Just enjoyed my preparation period, analyzed my test properly, had a little carefree attitude and was really calm during the test. I guess, that all worked and here I am today.


Advice to juniors:

Enjoy your preparation period. Don’t freak out! It’s never late, just remember that. Solve your mock tests well and spend time on evaluations. I guarantee it will help. All the best!
