Don’t Forget to Sleep

Sleep is vital for repairing the tearing and wearing of blood cells and nerves. It also reduces the stress and anxiety level of the body. It increases the memory power and helps in retaining it for a longer time. Therefore, sleep peacefully for at least 7-8 hours in a day. Especially get a sound sleep before the test day. It refreshes you; you’ll be able to think more distinctively. Enjoy fresh and healthy dinner before the test date, don’t eat junk food stuffs as it affects the blood pressure control in the body. In fact on the test date, have some light but nutritious breakfast.

Rehearse for Better Performance

Before the test date, don’t study rigorously but keep murmuring the important points. By doing this you’ll be relaxed and the points will remain fresh in your mind. You won’t feel much pressure of the exam. Read articles to make your clear and distinct stand for writing essays.

Be a Good Manager

The GMAT test is all about time management. And time management initiates right from the prep stages and continues till the test finishes. Hence, you have to be careful about your studying and daily life schedule. Give up your weekend fun to GMAT preparation as after completing MBA in any one of the renowned colleges across the world say London B-school or Harvard B-school your weekends will be more joyful.

Don’t Panic if Things Aren’t in Your Favor

Generally, we get panicky if things start flowing in the reverse direction. Keep calm and do not override things. Rather you should struggle and put in time to learn things. Don’t lose hope. GMAT is hard to crack for everyone; you’re not alone facing difficulties. Have faith on whatever you have studied, and all the questions will be asked following the same pattern.

B-Schools are not the Life’s End Destination

In our journey, we have seen several students who feel as a loser as they weren’t able to crack the GMAT test and get into good B-schools. Remember! This is not the end. There is also a life and a career beyond a B-school. And there is no upper age limit to appear for a GMAT test. If you’re unable to crack down GMAT for a full-time MBA degree course, you can opt for Mini-GMAT or go for an Executive MBA.
