It's time that it goes down



It has been over a year since I have been on the forum. I started out to minimize the effort/outcome ratio of my GMAT Prep.
13 months, a thousand post and a million pageviews later, I am equally scared.
My GMAT is in 8 days now. And Yes, I am not going to apply this year or the next, but I am already dreading the thought of retaking.
I am not a great pressure performer and should things start going down against my way on test day, I would probably not have enough nerves to turn my ship around.

9 days and I will have my (first) debrief on this forum.
Thanks ALL you guys who helped me out in the process. I wish I shall have never to do nothing with it again. Double negative eh! Not a GMAT favorite.

Let me know if you have any advice for the last week to my exam.
Peace out!

Souvik

P.S BTW The next week is going to go like this

Don't worry bro.. Just get some rest and keep yourself fresh for the D day.. Rest, by my most conservative estimates too- you'll do awesome..

Hey Souvik,

I guess you'll be having a good time with the GMAT since you've given it a lot of time as well as effort.
It is very normal to feel the heat during the last few days before taking the gmat..

Don't worry so much though, my last week before the exam was spent attending a wedding, an engagement ceremony in another city and a visit to a client in another state..

Good food, a bit of exercise, enough sleep, great music and a movie or two should be good!

They did the trick for me, at least.. :)

All the best bro!

Hey Souvik,

All the best for your GMAT today. BTW its an auspicious day here in India and the festive flavors soaring in all around is perhaps a good omen for you.

I am sure you are going to totally nail down the test and a min of 730 Score is being expected out of you. I along with many others on this forum are curiously waiting for your debrief !

Good luck with your test! Lets not put pressure on him by saying that you will get a certain score. Instead, use this opportunity as a learning experience. Most people will take the test more than once. Don't think about the score, just focus on screen, one question at a time. Have fun!
