Scored 90% in GMAT mock tests, but during the official exam at the testing center, I experience brain fog and end up with a score of 50%. At home, I can easily tackle any question, but in the exam environment, I struggle to comprehend verbal section What should I do

The first thing to do is to honestly answer if you did the mock exams in a test-like environment. Were you putting music on, using calculator, pausing, etc.? Because if so, then the 90th percentile score does not mean much

Wana try sitting for it at home next time? Cause test centres can be scary. Avoiding it for a reason also the lack of familiarity with the environment further adds to it.

Sometimes bad things happen even after working a lot on it. Take a small break, download ESR and see what has really gone bad. Before writing the next time do consider taking mocks other than official one. I really don’t know which mocks are you talking about. I would say scoring 90% in official mocks is pretty easy. Try Manhattan or EGMAT mocks in a 100% test environment. You will get the clear picture.

The more you attempt the test, the least the text anxiety. Stay indifferent during the test and enjoy it, but do not get anxious or excited (no extreme feelings).

v10-205589.html#p3331149 Can anybody here comment on option C? Even after going for A, I feel C can also be the potential answer here. I have made an argument after the solution (post) , you guys can see what’s the point being made.

What is the main purpose of the author in writing the passage?
Hi guys, I was wondering if you can share some tips for me. For a typical question above, I still struggle if the options offer "to criticise..." what element would you consider that the passage is criticising something?

Any tips on dealing with Vocabulary one is not familiar with for RC or CR? English being my first language and probably the only language I use (given that I grew up spending a lot of my time in Singapore, I’ve been told that I am on par with Singaporean English just to give an idea, I still need IELTS though ) and me being an avid reader, I still find myself making mistakes cause of unfamiliar Vocab which is so intimidating. Its tough when I try to make sense of the vocab with the passage and I misinterpret it and the answer happens to be that of the Vocab I am not familiar with.

I remember Rajat from E-GMAT told me to practice more when I went for their free course but the issue is that I just messed up on words like "Hoary" which felt so alien to me and ’’Emancipation’’ I am familiar with it but I dont use it enough to fully grasp it I guess.

2nd round watching GMAT Ninja videos. I’ve been drowning in Charles that I have even spotted the video where his toddler pays a guest visit.
But will look into Marty Murray. Thanks =)

The context of the pasaage should help with words. Plus, with practice, you’ll get a better at dealing with the unknown
