'Practice is the key to success'

ALL SET: Ipshita Wadhwe

These initiatives are being undertaken to avoid glitches that were observed in CAT ’09.

Ipshita Wadhwe, a BE student from BMS College of Engineering, says: “Since CAT has gone online from last year, it is very important to solve papers online; which is quite different from taking the test on paper. I try to take as many tests online as possible and even practise reading, using the computer.”

Neha Goud, a BE student from Manipal Institute of Technology, says: “I gave the CAT in 2009 and, luckily, I did not face any technical glitches. However, my preparation was disorganised. This year I enrolled at a coaching institute and after giving simulated tests at the institute, I realised that revising all three sections every day and attempting frequent section tests have helped me gain a lot of confidence. I personally feel that an online test is very different from the usual paper-based test, as I have observed that my speed had drastically reduced in the online test compared to the test in the paper format. I started attempting a lot of online tests. I also began reading a lot of articles on the computer. Since then, there has been a marked improvement in my computer-based preparation.”
