Hi all,

I work for a startup called Confidently as the CMO out in Los Angeles. I did the GMAT back in 2009 in London (ended up at UCLA) and I remember it being SO stressful for me. Literally I would be getting up at 7am and studying till 10pm. I puked on the way to the test center and I was shaking when I got my results.

So I wanted to make an app to help test takers, on a daily basis, 'get into the zone', handle stress, feel more confident and happy through that time. We have sports psychologists and executives coaches creating material now. Think 'Calm' or 'Headspace' but for performance. We have raised some money and are building the app right now.

But then we wondered how much all of you test-takers would really need this. Were you are stressed as I was? Are we building a product that you want? What do you want?

So we decided the best idea was to talk to 100 of you to find out. To that end, I'm hoping that you might chat to me on the phone for 15 mins to tell her about how you are finding GMAT study life. I'm offering $15 Amazon gift card too for your time. This isn't a scam - you can look me up on LinkedIn - Nicky George - I've started a few companies.

If you want to talk to me book a time here directly and I'll call you for 15 mins from Skype!

Love you all and good luck!

The Graduate Management Admission Test or GMAT is three-hours-thirty minutes standardized test. The GMAT score is used by business schools around the world to decide student admissions.

GMAT has four sections, and each with a separate score. Average GMAT scores for all test takers for the period of 2015-2017

Verbal with a 0-60 scale score: 26.86
Quantitative with a 0-60 scale score: 39.4
Integrated Reasoning (IR) with a 1-8 scale score: 4.23
Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) with a 0-6 scale score: 4.44

There is a fifth combined Quantitative/Verbal score on a 200-800 scale. It is these score colleges utilize when judging students.

Anything above 700 is considered a good GMAT score. That said, the choice of MBA college should determine what score you want to achieve.

With basics out of the way, we move to GMAT prep strategy. When you have only four weeks in hand, here’s how you prepare for the standardized test. Divide the month into three parts: 12 days, 12 days, and 6 days.
For professionals, two hours on working days and four hours otherwise are recommended study time. Put in an hour in the morning to revise concepts and an hour after work for solving real questions. Constant practice is the key to cracking GMAT. Solve as many mock tests as possible, online and on paper.
