3 important things to do once the CAT 2021 answer key is released.
#1 Once the response sheet is out, candidates have to first see and calculate the scores by comparing them with the answer key. The answer key carries all the questions with their correct and incorrect options while the response sheet contains the candidate’s individual responses to a particular question. Then calculate the sectional and total scores, and evaluate using the marking scheme i.e +3 marks for the correct answer (MCQs and non-MCQs), and -1 mark for wrong answer (only MCQs).
#2 Check for the expected percentile, they may not be completely accurate but it will give the candidates a step to make a decision. Once, the candidates get an expected CAT marks vs percentile, apply to those colleges from where the candidates think they can get a call.
#3 Now the candidates should start preparing for GD-PI-WAT. To do that candidates can watch videos of the previous year’s toppers, read newspapers, and make notes of the most expected questions to be asked in the interview. Aspirants can also go for other options such as preparing for other upcoming MBA exams.
