Krishnika Agarwal

Krishnika Agarwal had scored 99.44%ile in CAT 2017. She will be joining IIM Lucknow this year. She likes painting and traveling, and occasionally indulges in yoga and meditation.

VA - I had given GMAT just before I started my preparations. So that helped me with it. I used Manhattan Sentence Correction Guide for basic exercises. Egmat blogs and webinars really helped me a lot. RC - https://www.gpkafunda.com/solving-rc-passages/ video helped me a lot. Apart from this, it was mostly about choosing the right kind of passages during AIMCATS and spending more time on those. DI/LR - I was able to solve 5-6 passages during AIMCATs, so this was not really a problem for me. But one strategy which helped me during CAT 17 was to skim through all the questions in starting 2-3 minutes. This helped me identify the easy ones and solve them first. Reading all the sets before beginning the section is very important due to the fact that the time is not sufficient to solve all the sets and the level of difficulty varies largely from one set to another. QA - After taking the diagnostic test, I realized that I was out of touch with the formulas. So the first thing I did was to solve the TIME Quant booklets' exercises. Also, while analyzing my AIMCATs, I used to bookmark questions which I felt were different or difficult or had a new concept. I revised these questions 2-3 times before CAT. I used to take as many mocks as possible. The mocks covered almost all kinds of questions and helped me decide the best possible strategy for me.

It depends from person to person. Personally, I felt that test series and TIME material was enough for me. I did not have time to attend the classes. If you have enough time to attend classes (religiously) and still manage to self-study and give mocks, then you can definitely join a coaching. Coaching institutes provide tips and tricks to solve questions. On the other hand, if you do not have sufficient time, then I would recommend you to practice questions and go through their solutions as well. The solutions provided by the coaching institutes consist of the tips to solve the particular question, if any. Online platforms that I referred to: 1) Time test series : Consists of AIMCATs + SAMCATS + 100+ Sectional tests and topic tests 2) CL test series : AIMCATs (with good analysis) + few free material and video lectures on some topics
