I got up this morning and went through my normal routine. I decided to take another of the official Quant Diagnostics available on gmatfocus.com. From the moment I started, I was guessing on far more questions than I am accustomed to, and was spending a ton of time throughout the section. While the first focus test was in line with my GMATPrep to date, 46-60, this particular diagnostic placed me in the 38-46 range. I was sure the questions seemed abnormally hard, so I decided to re-load a GMATPrep test and take the first 10 questions of the Quant section. I missed 5, which again, is out of the ordinary for me. Before this morning, I was starting to feel very comfortable with most of the Quant concepts, but now I'm feeling a bit lost.
Should I chalk this up to a bad morning? Did anybody else have similar issues late in your study program? I am less than two weeks away from the test and want to ensure this isn't repeated during the actual exam.
Thank you for your insight.
From my experience, I think you are fine. I know how you feel. Been there...done that. I used to have spells of 3-1....3 productive days...one crappy day...and repeat...
You should look to this as an opportunity. I once scored 650 in GMP2 and thought why am I doing this...am I good for nothing...why do I keep doing silly mistakes.
But that low score (based on what I was shooting for) just opened my eyes and i stepped up my prep effort. So use this incidence to your advantage to focus more..tell yourself you cant afford this.
but overall...chill...you are working hard and putting your heart and brain (important) into this...thats all you can do. Learn from mistakes and move on
