70 Days to CAT Quants Strategy for  99 Percentile


The first step you need to take is to make numbers your friend and become comfortable with handling large and complex numbers. The fundamental way to begin would be to revise your mathematical tables and formulas thoroughly.

1. Befriend numbers


Mathematics is more about conceptual understanding than rote learning.

2.Get your Concepts Right

One may learn the many formulas involved in Mathematics but where to use those formulas and how to use those formulas requires a deep understanding about the concepts.

Clarity on this front will take you a long way in acing this section.


More than any other subject, the Quantitative Aptitude tests your speed and accuracy.

3. Speed and  Accuracy

As there are sectional limits too in the exam, you have to do the questions as quickly as possible. The questions require calculations too, which makes it more challenging than other sections.

Along with this you have to attain a certain level of accuracy and answer most questions correctly.


4. Conceptual Clarity

Just as Mathematics is about doing the concepts correctly, the Quantitative Aptitude can only be mastered if you have mastered your concepts.

Those students who work their way through the basics of the subject are more adept at solving the problems quickly.


5. Plan systematically

Because the entrance examination involves more than just Quant, candidates need to plan their schedules systematically and strategically.

For those, who are good in this subject and feel confident, they can take out time from this and devote to other subjects they may be weak in.


Time is of essence in the Quant  section. Because of the lengthy calculations required, as well as the  fear of Maths which needs to be overcome, time becomes an important factor in your performance in this section.

6. Time Management

The overall pressure of writing such a crucial exam that can bring you closer to your dream course in your dream institute adds to the anxiety and can affect time.


There is no better way to test your preparation levels than writing a  number of Mock Tests before the main exam.

7. Mock Tests

These tests give a good idea about your performance and help you strategize and plan your course of action for the main day. These tests also reveal to you your strengths and weaknesses, on which you can work and reach your best levels.
