Hello guys.
My exam is on this Saturday at pearson professional centre Bangalore.
I have been using the sequence V-Q-IR-AWA to practice, till now.
I am easily distracted by small sounds, especially when I am tensed. So I am wondering whether to use the sequence Q-V-IR-AWA to avoid all the keyboard noises from others writing the AWA, because I am very strong in quant and will not be distracted by the sound.

Am I overthinking?

Hey DIII ,

I think that's the good idea but I would prefer practicing this order atleast twice in my mocks just to make sure I am comfortable with this order.

Taking mocks with one order and the actual exam with another isn't advisable.

All the best :)

I thin you are completely over thinking this. Do whatever order is most comfortable for you.

You will have people taking other exams in the room and it is unlikely that you could eliminate any chance of their essays overlapping with your test. Pearson should provide headphones that you can use if the noises bother you that much .

Thanks, guys. Anyway, I feel that most of the GMAT test takers will use either the order 2 or the order 3, So shouldn't be a problem.
In any case, hopefully, my mind will be focussed.

Most centres provide noise cancelling headphones. Also, there is reasonable distance between any two test takers. Take the exam in the same sequence in which you have practiced. Any last minute changes might lead to mess ups.
