CAT 2022 Mock Test: Importance of CAT Mock Test During Preparation

CAT 2022 is likely to be conducted on November 27 and more than 2 lakh candidates are expected to appear in the exam. With the number of CAT aspirants increasing every year, the competition to get admission in IIMs and other popular management colleges in the country is on the rise. Candidates are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that they give their best performance on the day of the exam. Taking CAT Mock Tests is probably the most important aspect to feature on your checklist for CAT 2022 preparation.

If you are taking CAT this year, you must attempt at least 10-15 CAT Mock Tests before the real exam to get an understanding of your preparation level. You may find too many Mock Tests available online, but there are only some that match up to the level of the actual exam. Therefore, take Mock Tests that capture the real essence of CAT to have the best results on the exam day.

CAT 2020 Mock Test

The mock test papers of CAT 2022 will be updated on the official website of CAT. All candidates who are appearing for CAT 2022 must use the mock test to get familiar with the exam interface and how to answer questions in CAT 2022. IIM Indore has clarified that the questions asked in the mock test have been taken from previous year question papers of CAT 2022.

What is CAT Mock Test?

Mock tests are useful learning resources for candidates preparing for CAT 2022. A Mock test is a close replica of the actual CAT exam, which gives you a fair idea of how well prepared you are. It works like a practice test that you take before the exam day to become familiar with the exam pattern and the marking scheme. The best part of taking Mock Tests is that you get to know your strengths and weaknesses beforehand so that you can work on them accordingly. Also, you get an idea of the format and the type of questions to expect in the examination.

Some of the tips mentioned here on how to approach the CAT question paper will also be helpful for you.

Why take CAT Mock Test?

The Mock Test paper of CAT will help you know the type of questions that will be asked in the exam. Besides this, there are many advantages to taking a CAT Mock Test paper. Candidates can check some important benefits of taking the CAT mock test paper provided in this article.

Importance of CAT Mock Test

What is the importance of the CAT Mock Test? Find out below.

  • The mock test helps you in becoming familiar with the exam pattern, which eventually builds up your speed and confidence to take the actual test later.
  • No matter how many times you take the mock tests, you will learn something new with every attempt.
  • It evaluates and assesses your overall performance over the course of your preparation.
  • It improves your accuracy in solving various types of questions, which is important for the actual exam.
  • It provides a brief idea about your current level of preparation and compels you to work hard to put your best foot forward.
  • It sheds light on your strong and weak areas and helps you avoid mistakes that you must have made in your previous attempts.
  • By frequently taking the CAT Mock tests, you get accustomed to the pressure of the exam, which also prepares you for D-day.
  • By regularly taking the Mock tests, you will develop time management and problem-solving skills, which are the two most important parameters to get a high CAT score.

When to Take CAT 2022 Mock Test?

It is recommended that candidates should analyse their CAT preparation regularly to know their preparation level. They should try to solve at least 1 to 2 CAT Mock tests in a week. However, the frequency for giving mock tests of CAT should be doubled when just two or three months are left for the exam.

Candidates are further advised to give a mock test before starting the preparation of the exam so that they can know the exam pattern and structure. Answering the CAT Mock Test papers regularly will also help the candidates to build the necessary mental stamina to sit in the exam for 3 hours.

The information given below will clear all of your doubts regarding the calculation of MAT-Score. Refer to the MAT 2022 Exam Pattern for a better understanding of this information.

MAT Result-cum-Scorecard Important Details 2022

Following are the important details mentioned on the MAT scorecard or score report.

  • MAT section-wise scaled scores in Language Comprehension, Intelligence & Critical Reasoning, Data Analysis & Sufficiency, and Mathematical Skills.

  • MAT 2022 Composite Score.

  • The score of a candidate in the Indian & Global Environment section. The Indian & Global Environment score of a candidate is not used in the calculation of the overall composite score or MAT percentile. This is because according to AIMA, questions asked in this section do not illustrate a candidate's ability to perform in a PGP course.

  • Section-wise and overall percentile of a candidate in the MAT exam.

MAT 2022 Score vs Percentile Calculation

We have provided the calculation method of the scores and percentile of the MAT 2022 exam. Candidates are advised to go through the calculation method to know how the percentile and scores of MAT are calculated. 

Calculation of MAT Scaled Scores 2022

The section-wise scores mentioned in the MAT 2022 scorecard are the scaled scores of a candidate. The scaled scores are calculated based on marks obtained by a candidate in each of the MAT 2022 exam sections.

  • Each section of the MAT exam contains 40 questions of 1 mark each. This puts the maximum achievable raw marks in each section of MAT 2022 at 40.

  • The raw scores obtained by a candidate in the MAT 2022 exam are scaled to a range of 0 to 100.

  • Since MAT is conducted 4 times each year and the level of difficulty of each exam can vary, the scaled scores are adjusted to nullify this difference in difficulty levels.

  • Scaled scores give a near-accurate depiction of a candidate's ability and performance in the MAT exam and can be compared to the scores obtained by other candidates.

  • While the scaled score of the Indian & Global Environment section is included in the MAT score report, the score is not considered when calculating the overall composite score or percentile of a candidate in the MAT exam.
