Sir,

i am done with my GMAT Exam.
I got so nervous that i ended up scoring less than 600. I don't know what happened. Please advise me what to do. I feel my RC is very weak. But a day back when i took the RC test, i scored 84%. Actually the main issue is concentration. When i am able to concentrate well, i score very good marks.
Rest everything is fine. But there is 1 issue-
When i perform under pressure, i tend to make very silly mistakes. i am not able to do a thing when stressed. I was too stressed during the exam and my blood pressure went down all of a sudden. I got too nervous. Can u please tell me how to tackle this?
I was shivering in the examination hall (because of nervousness) and was restless too.

You are not the only one who gets nervous. Remember, you have probably made mistakes in the past, but you endured. Similarly, you will make mistakes in GMAT but you will endure and succeed if you really have the hunger, in the second or third if not the first attempt. GMAT won't determine your fate, you will determine your fate by choosing to overcome this fear. GMAT has 8 retries and you haven't exhausted them all. There is not just 1 business school in the world, there are thousands and hundreds of them are good.

Hi Bob2018,

I'm sorry to hear that Test Day did not go as well as hoped. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) How did you score on EACH of your Official GMATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
7) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
8) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Bob2018,

I’m sorry to hear how things went with your GMAT. Try to say positive, my friend! We will get everything sorted out and get you back on track. That being said, I, too, would like to learn a bit more regarding your previous study routine as well as your GMAT score goal.

Thanks!
