how to improve Rc for cat 2018?
Even after practicing for months, the main section in which candidates find trouble is Reading Comprehension. This is a myth that not having an English background will hamper the performance in CAT. Actually, in CAT the English is quite simple but it is the context that is most important. Even in CAT 2017, RC’s were quite easy in terms of language and the context. Most of the students found it easy because they have background knowledge of the topics.
So, in the reading time, start reading articles on a variety of topics. Especially, the topics which you find difficult to comprehend. For say, Engineering students might have less knowledge related to Economics. Thus, read articles related to Economy, Banking Awareness, case studies etc. Recently, Paul Romer, William Nordhaus have won Nobel Prize in Economics. Read from Psychology, History especially World Wars, Financial Crises etc. Usually, there is atleast one Topic that is related to Economics in the exam.
Next, in Quantitative Ability, many students with non-engineering background find QA a hard nut to crack. So, in this section more you have the concepts clear, the more it is easy to solve the question. As s good strategy, thoroughly analyze the paper and divide it into three sections easy, moderate, and difficult questions. This way students will able to attempt more questions with higher accuracy.
