I did not even imagine that I'll score lower than 1st trial mock test MGMAT 510. I spoiled my test, got nervous from the beginning of the test.
In my mock tests I scored in the range of 630 - 710.
Please suggest me how to restart the journey. I have finished all the quiz banks of Kaplan
and OG 13
, from where I can get the fresh sets of questions.
Please suggest me how to hold the nerve because I felt that during test I was not using any of the strategy, my mind was completely blank.
first of all, do not get discouraged!! A lot of people have been where u are at the moment, thats just what the GMAT does. The test tries to bring down ur confidence, do not let that happen!
U already know why the test went wrong, namely because u were nervous. That is the first thing u have to tackle! Try to do as many mocks as u can under real conditions (including 2x8min break + AWA + IR etc.) in order to get used to the real thing. If in the end nothing helps and u are naturally frightened before exams (only u know that), I guess u should consider talking to a doctor about that. Maybe he can help u with beta blockers or else...
. Evaluate where ur strengths and weaknesses are (what has been the splitting in the real test?) and get some books. They are golden, especially the SC + number properties guides. In addition, u also get 6 new CATs u can use.
