How to get 550+ GMAT marks?

Post
Guys,

I am very tensed that how can score 550+ or 600 GMAT score. I've recently decided to go for MBA and have very less time (1 month) to prepare GMAT and I am working professional so I need to maintain equilibrium of work and study.

Can you please advise me how should I approach and is it possible for me(I know its subjective)to get 550+ within this short period of time?

Hi Aditya,

What you are saying is definitely possible but with the kind of time you have at hand especially the fact that you are working full time, 1 month looks like very small time to prepare for GMAT to the best of your abilities. Your preparation may remain half hearted and it will reflect in the exam too.

Typically, it requires anywhere between 3 to 6 months time to prepare well for GMAT. And during these months, even though you may be working full time, you can still prepare well. It is all about studying smart, right coaching and a good preparatory material.

Now, if you still consider giving GMAT within next 1 month, here's what you should do - Take as many mock tests as possible and then spend all the time you have in analyzing your performance in these tests. After every test, identify your strong and weak areas and understand what is it that you could have done to increase your score. Try these strategies in the next test and make a list of new strategies. Keep going on like this and hopefully you would start getting where you want to.

And if you choose to give yourself time and prepare for GMAT and have any questions regarding GMAT coaching or GMAT in general, please do let us know and we would be happy to help.

Wish you the best.
