Don't know about you guys,but when I need inspiration..one word..MUSIC!!!!!


Tyrone Wells (Remain)

Take a deep breath
No more time left
This is what I thought I wanted
Why am I afraid?




Are we going down or will we fly?
This could be a shipwreck on the shore
Or we could sail away forevermore
This time it's sink or swim, sink or swim

Hey Guys..will write a detailed post later..just wanted to get a quick opinion about something:

I am seeing that my confidence level is very very low when solving questions ESPECIALLY DS because I know I am weak at it..
eg:Started my error log today...Og 11 Ds section..20 questions..I got just 1 wrong whereas while solving I went in my head..this is wrong..this one is too..third one wrong in a row..I have done this one before but sure I am doing it wrong..:(

Sheesh!Confidence girl confidence!!

So have done the disappearing act since the last couple of days..mainly due my nerves..have'nt really studied either..more like WORRYING about studying.. the concentration is so weak that i am unable to stick with a particular thing for more than a couple of mins...and then,since the last couple of days u really cannot do anythng to elevate your position..what's the point of sitting long hrs with books right..whatever had to be done,is done.

its saturday morning 5:30Am..in 48 hrs ill be getting up this time for my real thing.

don't psych yourself out is the best advice i can give you at this point. it's pointless to try to tell yourself not to be nervous, as it's bound to happen. i was pretty nervous up until the point i started writing my AWA essays. even though you're nervous now, you cannot afford to bring all that negative energy / mentality with you into the exam room. what seemed to work for me was a boost of adrenaline that i felt as i started the test. i'd recommend you do something physically active before the test (or the night before if your test is too early) like running some sprints or lifting some weights. that way, you can feel the same rush during your test as you felt while being physically active.

Thanks for the support:)
Thought i'll check in my latest status...

I gave my very last gprep..and guess what??Finally finally FINALLY..i reached a score of 720Now ain't that cool..now i won't have the feeling that I never even saw the score ever!Yes,the score is lopsided agreed 'coz of having taken gprep multiple times..but still..whatever works right??
So my final score is 720 V40 Q49

I may not know everything..but i guess I do know something right??

Taking it easy today..just the exam..tomo will go over my notes,meet up with a friend,catch a light hearted flick..

I'll do the best i can..it's just an exam..in case my mind decides to freak out,i'll just tell it to freak out after the exam :wink:
