Hi guys,

I am taking the GMAT officially friday at 11:00. Let's just say freaking out is an understatement. The program at my school says I need a 520 to apply, but I have a 480 so far from taking two practice tests. (both times i score a 480). What are the chances that from now till friday I'll get that 520, maybe even higher. I just feel so much pressure. All my friends and family are supportive but I just feel like they can't really understand. Totally freaking out. Would love any response: positive or negative. Thanks all.

The truth is nobody can exactly predict how you are going to perform on the real test. Good thing you dont have the added pressure of scoring 700 or more to get into a business school. The variation in scores in real test from mocks is generally taken to be +-40. Just go and face it. Relax! since there is nothing much that can be done now.
Good luck.

I take it you are not overwhelmed with extensive preparation. Hence, I suggest that you continue studying till Friday only revise on Thursday. Go to GMAT Target Prep they have a free trial (5days) it is an excellent website.

Hey jtess97 ,

Welcome to GMATClub.

Do you know there is a secret to get this improvement in so less time?

The secret is just calm down and be very careful while marking the answers. Don't over study now. Take deep breath and chill.

All the best
