Those who will appear for the CAT 2020 exam, they must keep in mind that since the duration of the exam has been reduced to 40 minutes for each section, while answering the questions, they will have to ensure that the questions are answered quickly as well as correctly. Hence, they must quickly read the questions asked in the CAT 2020 exam, analyse it and answer it within the stipulated time.

First Answer Questions about which one is 100 percent sure

Once the candidate logs in to the system, then he or she should first see the questions about which they are 100 percent sure. They should answer those questions first in the CAT 2020 and then move to those which will be less time consuming and which they can answer by analysing a little bit and putting in extra time.

CAT Mock Tests
