How to Make the Most of Career Launcher's CAT Test Series?

Not sure how can CL's CAT test series help you in landing at the B-school of your dreams? Let us give you an exact picture of how can the CAT Test Series be your key for ultimate success in CAT and other exams.


Take your first mock on Day 1

Do not wait for your syllabus to end before you start taking your mocks. Take your first mock as soon as you enroll so that you have a clear idea of where you stand on Day 1.


Always take all the mocks within their exam window

All the proctored mocks have exam windows of 8-10 days and it is advisable for you to take the mocks within the window. Each mock is designed to give you a meaningful experience in your preparation journey, and therefore you should take them regularly.


Post October, take the mocks at the same time as your actual CAT window

Once your CAT admit card is out, you will know what will be your slot for the actual CAT exam. All the mocks, henceforth, should be taken at the same time as your actual CAT exam.


Analyse each and every mock

This is the single most important point that will make all the difference in your preparation with the CAT Test Series. Always ensure that you spend at least 5 hours after each 3-hour mock that you attempt.

How to Analyse Career Launcher's CAT Mocks?

In order to make the most out of each mock that you take, make sure that you spend at least 5 hours after every 3-hour CAT mock. Here, we give you the toppers' method of analyzing a CAT mock.


Understand the solutions of the questions you couldn't solve

A great amount of learning happens while analyzing the mocks. Check the solutions to understand how to solve the questions that you were not able to solve during the mock. This will help you learn those concepts and will put you in good stead.


Find faster ways of solving the questions you got correct

Always look for faster ways of solving questions by watching the CL Guru's ways of solving the mock in their Mock Attempt videos. Most students don’t revisit the questions which they were able to solve in the exam. This is one of the biggest reasons why they find themselves stuck at the same percentile which they got in the last mock.


Fill up your Strength Finder

CL's Strength Finder is a tool where you should key in whether a given topic is a strength or an area of improvement. Basis this matrix, our AI-driven engine analyses your mocks and suggests in our CAT Score Booster tool that what should be your strategy for selecting questions in a mock.


Analyze the mocks using the CAT Score Booster

CAT Score Booster is CL's AI-driven tool that helps you understand after a mock that which questions should have been attempted, which questions you should not have attempted, in which questions did you waste your time etc. This gives you a lot of clarity about which questions you should go after in the mocks.


Try different strategies before you find the best one

After having attempted the first few mocks, do try out different strategies. Different CL Gurus attempt the mocks in really different ways. That is why watching each of the Mock Attempt Videos will give you a different strategy which you should try in your mocks and then finalize on one.

What is a proctored mock test?

We offer 15 proctored CAT mocks which can be taken at your nearest CL center. The aim of the proctored CAT mocks is to provide a simulated environment closest to the actual exam. Each proctored mock has an open window of 7-10 days during which you can book your seat. After the window is closed, the proctored mock is converted to an unproctored one which you can then attempt from the comfort of your home.

What is an unproctored mock test?

We offer 5 un-proctored CAT mocks which you attempt online any time. If you miss the window of a proctored mock, it gets converted into an unproctored mock test, which you can attempt at a time and place of your convenience.

Master Series include videos of 10 mock attempts recorded by CL mentors including Gautam Puri, Gejo, Shivku, Gautam Bawa, etc. In these videos, our aptitude gurus elaborate varied strategies and tactics for each section and how you should go about it to maximize your scores.
