Who should use CAT previous year papers?

We have seen that the questions that come in CAT papers are different from the ones that come in mocks. Moreover, the questions that come in mocks are either too complex or too easy, unlike the ones that come in actual CAT, whose questions are logical.

In addition to this, we have seen that the past year CAT papers cover a syllabus with which you must be familiar. The CAT does not define its syllabus, and we have no other source except the previous year CAT papers to get some understanding of what exactly the CAT syllabus is all about.

How to effectively use Previous year CAT Papers?

To effectively use these papers, you must first go through the basic concepts of each and every section. Once you have gone through the basic concepts, you should solve the sectional tests of some reputed institute. While solving the sectional tests, you must ensure that you touch upon the questions of all difficulty levels.  The past year CAT papers have questions of varying difficulty levels. Your hold on concepts and your ability to solve questions of varying difficulty will ensure that you solve the questions from the past year cat papers confidently.
