Folks, there are many GMAT candidates who face a problem wherein there score at the actual GMAT exam is much lower than what they used to score at most of their mock GMAT exams.
There could be many factors and reasons to it. The first and the foremost reason which lowers down the GMAT score substantially at the GMAT EXAM is that candidate is not able to cope up with the pressure which they experience while writing the GMAT exam. Some students feel stressed while reading the question at the actual GMAT exam.
Hence it is very important to be calm and at peace while writing the GMAT exam. Though there are various remedial actions to correct it the best one is to write a good number of GMAT mock exams in a very GMAT exam simulated condition prior to your actual GMAT exam. Moreover, it is very important that one should do the full test including the AWA and Integrated Reasoning section instead of normal practice where candidates only write GMAT quantitative and verbal section during the GMAT mock exam.
Doing only quantitative and verbal section is not the right strategy as the candidate will not be habitual for sitting for so long and doing all different sections at stretch with only two 8 minutes break. Also, it is recommended that candidate should really make themselves comfortable with whatever order of available options they are more comfortable with and should stick to the same order while attempting the actual GMAT exam.
Moreover, GMAT candidates should take only two 8 minutes breaks as are there in the actual GMAT exam.GMAT candidates should be completely relaxed a day before their actual GMAT exam and should not do very rigorous practice or GMAT mock exam. It is recommended to revise bullet points or formula or remarks a day before actual GMAT exam.
Ideally, GMAT exam candidates should always prepare the remarks sheet post every GMAT mock exam basis of the kind of mistakes they have done and strategy which they should have followed to make their score better and revising all of these sheets before the GMAT mock exam and actual GMAT exam.
Doing this makes candidates conscious of the type of the mistakes which they mostly do and hence avoiding those mistakes will be easy if you know them beforehand.
