The last day! Not altogether pleased with how the month’s gone: I do feel I’d be poised for acing the GMAT if I’d had two months of study rather than one, so ultimately I’ve just run out of time. As it stands I’m capable of tackling almost any question given thought and time … but not experienced enough with the formats to make the right judgement calls and snap decisions that’d enable me to approach every question effectively in a two-minute time limit.
To finish off my practice testing, I took the two GMATPrep tests from MBA.com. (Didn’t include them as part of my 28-day programme since they’re renowned for giving an artificially high score.) The two tests gave me a 720 (42Q/48V) and 750 (44Q/51V). So if I don’t stuff up tomorrow, I’m on course for the 650+ any top MBA programme needs in order to consider my application without collapsing in scornful laughter. Mean average score over all the practice tests I’ve done this month, ranging from 560 to 760: 670.
