I will take GMAT tomorrow, but please see my score variation.

It ranges from 400 to 700
And I am really not sure whether I can meet my target score (630)
My score depends on my condition and confidence.

Is there anyone who has big fluctuation like me ? Please give me any advice. Or how to control your mind yourself....

Hey,

For now just relax and forget about your Mock scores. Give your best shot tomorrow and be very focused while doing any question. Don't rush during the exam.

All the best :)

I couldn't agree more with the above. In the end, you can only do what you can do, and your preparation time is now over, so just go in there, sit down, and do the best that you can. I think you'll do better than you realize, regardless of your mock tests.

Your mind will relax when you realize that at this point it is out of your control.

Good luck!

If I'm reading this correctly, it looks like you took two practice tests in one day, then did another one the next day, the day before your official test! Not a great idea - mental fatigue probably explains a lot of your score drop (especially if it was the second test that was weaker). So anybody else who's reading this, I recommend against doing that :) For you, you've already done it, so I just recommend relaxing for the rest of the day (and before your test tomorrow). Don't study any more and definitely don't do another practice test. Take it easy - your ability level is what it is now, and all you can do is go into the test as well-rested and calm as possible.

Agreed - if you do take practice tests - ideally no more than one the day before. What's more important is review in the last two days. Don't underestimate the psychological elements of the test - it's a marathon. You might be running a marathon right after doing several sprints back to back.

Here's an article on GMAT psychology talking about these points and more: http://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-psychology ... trategies/

I'd normally advise you to focus more on the scores obtained before a reset, but this is more just to wish you good luck.

Hi kwonjessy,

How did your Official GMAT go? I imagine that I'm not the only one who's curious about the outcome (especially based on what you described in your original post).

Great advice ..am relaxing and revising concepts for the last three days. Test tomorrow!! Didn't attempt any test or GMAT club questions in last 3 days. It does take a toll if we are all charged up till the day before exam.
