MAT 2022: Last-minute preparation tips

  • To ace the MAT 2022 exam, make sure to complete the syllabus in time and avoid last minute cramming. Manage time to revise the important topics twice. Revising more than once is a guaranteed way to retain what you have studied.
  • Take a couple of last-minute MAT mock tests and analyze them well to identify your weak and strong areas. Also, it is important to solve MAT 2022 mock tests to get an idea about the exam pattern, type of questions, time taken to solve each question and the speed at which to solve the paper.
  • Make a last minute time-table for yourself. Self discipline is the key to cracking exams. Make sure to dedicate a large portion of your day to studying. At the end of the day, include some time in your time-table to revise what you have studied that day.
  • Study the basic concepts and important formulae. Brushing up the basics helps in solving the paper before time leaving ample time to revise .
  • Make sure to not start any new topic these last days. Your last minute study should strictly exclude starting new topics to avoid any confusion. Instead focus on strengthening what you have already studied.
