In order to excel in the RC section, one must accept the fact that a lot of reading hours are required.

You can read Newspapers, Novels, Magazines, etc. You must allocate at least 45 minutes from your daily schedule to the reading activity.


The RC passages in the actual CAT exam stretch to a good length and in order to solve them, you must retain the information you read. This retention ability will not develop overnight. Besides retention, there are tons of benefits from reading daily.


CAT 2024 will be dominated by a lot of RC passages and it’s definitely an exhausting section as you have to concentrate a lot.

In addition to offline reading, I would personally request everyone to carry out the reading activity on screens like smartphone, laptop etc. The actual CAT paper would be on Computer Screen so do develop a habit of reading on screen.
