There are a lot of misconceptions about entrance test, or another kind of test, people can’t differentiate between a fact or a myth, they mixed up both, a fact is what exactly happened or somehow exist, a myth is what people talk about but don’t exist, or maybe exist but only a few had an experience of it, and due to their experience some starts believing and take it as a fact, but it’s not exactly a fact.
A widely held but false belief or idea.
The fact is something that has really occurred or is actually correct.
I need to study 8 hours a day.
With a disciplined and planned study, you may be able to prepare even by putting in 3-4 hours a day.
I need to take as many tests as possible.
It is important to spend more time in analyzing every test rather than blindly taking test after test.
If I am not doing well in the mock tests, I have no chance to get in.
Mocks are only net practice. Your performance at the nets is not related in any way to your performance in the actual match.
I should study absolutely everything that’s in the textbook or that was discussed by the instructor.
Only a small portion of the material is included on any test. Don’t doubt this myth, it can affect your results, don’t be exceptional, try to learn as much as you can, don’t leave things on choices, or the result will leave you as a choice.
It takes a great amount of intelligence and exceptional academic scores to clear CAT.
This is not so true now, a reality is if you have enough smartness to score great, you’ll be where you wants to be.
