“My accuracy while solving questions is 90%, but I take more time to answer them.”
“I almost always have to rush towards the end of the test and blindly guess on the last 5 questions, making a lot of careless errors.”
Have been there?
The GMAT exam tests decision making under strict time conditions. Practising the content along with the timing strategies is imperative. The average time to solve a question in the Quant section is 2 mins/question and for Verbal it is 1.49 mins/question.
Unless you have a time management and pacing strategy in place, you won’t do well on the test day even though you might have mastered the exam content. It is not surprising that the single BIGGEST cause of a score drop on the test day is BAD Time management. The GMAT exam algorithm heavily penalises test takers who don’t complete the exam by dropping their scores/percentiles sharply.
So, how does one develop a good timing strategy?
I have compiled a list of top ten time management articles that will help you craft an efficient time management game plan for test day. Read on.
I am sure that implementing the timing strategies outlined above will give your GMAT score a BIG boost. Please remember to practice and perfect your timing strategy well before test day. Happy Studying!
