For Creative Ability Test (CAT), try making different sceneries. For example, a scene of community festival, a cobbler at workplace, traffic jam etc. Make yourself perfect in drawing human figures. Practice poster making. Don't practice with water colours because they aren't allowed there. Also get some knowledge about the colour schemes, like which colour depicts which emotion. You should buy a reference book, there are many books available in the market. Practice all of it's question papers. The CAT exam is of 3 hours in which 3–4 questions are asked, so practice the questions in the time limit. CAT has 50% weightage.
The General Ability Test (GAT) contains logical reasoning questions, english grammar, passage comprehension, maths (till class 10th), general knowledge questions. You need not to be stressed about GAT. It's quite easy. It's a 2 hour test and there's no negative marking. The reference books have covered all of these topics in a pretty good manner. And besides that keep yourself up to date with latest fashion trends, watch advertisement (you should know that which celebrity endorses which brand) and read newspaper. That would be all. GAT has 30% weightage.
When you'll clear these exams. You'll have to give the Situation Test . It's a 2 hour test and you will have to construct a 3-D model with the provided materials.
