2IIM responds to your youtube comments regarding CAT preparation:

In this video we answer a question posted by Aditya and he asks: Sir Advice for mock please, how to improve scores and what not.

1. Analysing Mocks:
Find 3 questions you should have skipped in that mock.
Find 3 questions you should have answered in that mock.

2. Every DATA Point is Not useful:
If you start worrying about every data point available, then you are not looking at learning. You are still looking at the past. Learning from mocks are important, let’s say after July, after you are comfortable with most topics.

3.Fix Input metrics not Output metrics.
Focus on the exam in hand and not worry about how the score will turn out during the mock.

The first 3~4 mocks sets the pace. One learns to navigate the interface, sitting in one place for 3 hours, staying awake, and at the top of their game for a continued period of time.
Do not stop taking mocks due to bad experience once. Then it could be termed as the equivalent of not wanting to walk, because you got hurt while trying to, and still wanting to run on the D Day. Life does not work that way.

    Sir, as per your last advice in the video which relates to focusing on input metrics and not output metrics. I have a question.

    I'm scoring in 50s in my mocks. I have taken 3-4 mocks over a period since February. My target score is 140-150.

    Shall I straightaway aim at 150? Or should I improve my score in small increments like first score 90 then after that aim for 120 and so on.

    Who should do MBA and prepare for CAT, In my case i want to become entrepreneur. Don't you think a bachelors in commerce or economics is enough for me.
