Time Management Tips For GMAT Exam

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”

                                                                                            Leo Tolstoy

This quote is apt for GMAT aspirants. Imagine your test center as a war zone; you’re bombarded with 37 quant questions and 41 verbal questions, and you have to conquer each in 75 minutes!

“Try to solve each verbal question in 1.5 minutes and quant in 2 minutes to avoid thwart due to time scarcity, as it is advisable that giving wrong answers is better than leaving it unanswered. As No penalty imposes on wrong answers.” This is the standard preach you’ll get from the test appeared candidates. In fact, many of the GMAT prep websites sermonizes the same.

We understand the students’ capabilities and never believe in dictating the same rule to be imposed on everyone. We recognize the need of the student’s, individually and advocate accordingly. It is a pure truth that “SPEED” is the key to unlocking the time hurdle in GMAT.

This will not only increase your capability to deal with the long question in limited time. Also, enhance your skills in recognizing the problem and solving with proper tactics.

  1.    Create your way of solving the problem

To solve high thinking order questions, create your area of systematic solving by breaking it into different segments. Once you gain the authentic way of solving, try to achieve excellence in solving in minimal time. Follow the same rhythm in exam also.

It’s anything but difficult to fall into the trap of considering “Gracious, I know this! I can unravel this!” and get so got up to speed in the test of finding the answer that valuable time is lost.
