GMAT Entrance Exam provides the way for Higher Studies in Abroad
One of the main prerequisites for attending an MBA program is to pass the Graduate Management Admission Test. The GMAT is a test taken by all students who are interested in attending MBA College and as such is a highly competitive exam. It is the cause of much anxiety and stress amongst many students. The right approach to take the test is not to panic or stress about it, but to take a step by step plan to approach it. We present a multi-step plan for your Test preparation.
Step 1: Plan your MBA well in advance
It is important to plan your MBA applications well in advance. You need to start making plans atleast three years before your intended program. In fact many students start planning an MBA right from the time they are in the last year of high school. Planning early gives you time to do research regarding different MBA programs, target the right GPA and also prepare much in advance for your Graduate Management Admission Test.
Step 2: Prepare a study plan for GMAT
Once you have embarked on your journey towards an MBA, the next most important thing is to register for the GMAT and learn more about the format and structure of the test as well as questions asked most frequently. This is also the time to take a look at application cut-off dates for all the universities you are interested in and making sure you register in time.
Step 3: Take a Mock Test to determine your state of preparation
One of the most important things you should do as a student is to take a mock GMAT exam before you actually start preparing for it. Remember you need to take this test without any preparation whatsoever. This test should give you a fair idea of where you stand in terms of the test, your strong and weak points and the areas you will need to focus on.
Step 4: Start your preparation with a proper study plans
It is important to come up with a study plan that integrates with your daily schedule and your personality type. Are you a morning person or a night person? Do you prefer studying alone or in a group? Do you prefer to study in small time chunks scattered throughout the day or for a solid two hours at one go? All these questions and their answers will help you come up with a plan of study that is best suited to you. Also as you continue in your studies for the GMAT make sure that you periodically and frequently review your progress.
Step 5: Make plans for actual day of GMAT
It is advisable to tour the test center, where you will be attempting the Graduate Management Admission Test to get an exact idea of the driving distance as well as the surroundings of the test centre. It is also important to know what the rules are regarding what is permitted and not permitted in the test hall. It may be a difficult situation for you if you are caught in traffic and are late for your test, so it is best if you plan on arriving early to the test centre. Do not book your slot on an eventful day where the streets are flooded with traffic, which may result in reaching late to your test centre.
Step 6: Finally take a deep breath and give it your best
The final culmination of all your preparation is here, and you are in the GMAT test center, pencil in hand. Take a deep breath and give it your best shot. Make sure that you read each question thoroughly and that you have understood the question. However do not spend too much time on any one question. This may stop you from answering questions further ahead. Also make sure that you do some intelligent guessing for questions whose answers you do not know. This can help you improve your scores.
