Handling Stress When Writing the GMAT

Question #1: Do you suffer from test anxiety?
Question #2: Do you suffer from GMAT test anxiety?

Unless you’ve already written the GMAT in a formal testing environment, I suggest that you don’t really know the answer to Question #2. I say this because you’ve probably never written a test like the GMAT (other than perhaps the SAT you wrote a million years ago).

If you’ve placed a great deal of importance/significance on your GMAT results, then your response to the stress of test day may be different from what they think it will be.

In this video, we’ll examine how to prepare for and mitigate test day stress.

Ask on Beat The GMAT
