Your 1st Step to Higher Education™
If you’re currently in pursuit of GMAT excellence you need to be ready to commit yourself to the relationship! Getting the score you want is no easy feat. To help you on your journey to GMAT relationship success, I came up with some dating tips.
Set goals – Sometimes all you need is a gentle push to get your mind into revision mode. Without a test date booked it’s hard to plan a revision schedule and very easy to become complacent. Have a GMAT test date in mind.
Plan date nights – Carving out time to commit to the GMAT is a constant battle as life tends to get in the way! With your test date and prior commitments in mind, make a revision schedule. Be firm with yourself and try to stick to it!
Small things count – You don’t have to make grand gestures to win over the GMAT. In fact, the most effective way to revise is to commit to small amounts of practice as often as you can. Flash cards are a simple option to revise on the go. For example, if you have a 30 minute bus commute to work, you can reach in your bag and prepare with ready-made flash cards. For the more tech savvy individuals, there are several GMAT preparation applications for the iPad and iPhone that don’t cost a fortune.
Mix it up - Many of us think that in order to properly revise we need to chain ourselves to our desk at home or to a corner table in the library. This may work for some of us, but in truth changing up our study environments can prove to be very effective. When we are stuck in the same place for long periods of time, we can go a little bit stir crazy. My advice is to mix up your working environment. Try moving to sit near a window so you can be exposed to direct sunlight. Natural light helps our eyes focus as well as boosts our general mood. Going outside for a different scene is a popular choice; find a quiet local park to set up your revision. Even getting out the house to grab a coffee and revise in Starbucks can prove useful.
Be on time – Timing is pretty much everything when it comes to test day! Please remember to arrive to your exam center at least 15 minutes early. During the exam, keep your eye on the clock so that you finish the questions on time and don’t get slapped with a hefty penalty.
Best of luck in your GMAT relationship!
