How do I overcome timing and nervousness at 800 quant level? [#permalink] New post 27 Nov 2011, 10:39
In the last CAT practice test, I reached to 99% twice and then dropped down. How can I sustain at this level? The problems I am facing are:

1. Timing: I was doing ok until I encountered a strong problem and spent a lot of time figuring it out.

2. Nervousness: I realized that I am given 800 level questions and got nervous.

How to overcome these problems?

Dude its clearly a case of needing extra practise - from Q27 -Q37 you took less than 2 mins/question. Hence your percentile decreased. The only way to improve is practise, practise and practise till you could improve your timing.
