We published the story of an Indian engineer from BITS Pilani who scored a perfect 800 on the GMAT.
[And yes, before publishing the article on the MBA Crystal Ball blog, as we generally do with all high test scorers, we verified his claims by checking his GMAT report.]
Apart from the right test prep material and study plan, there were several other factors that worked in his favor - including luck.
He talks about his ‘failure’ with another competitive exam that helped immensely while preparing for the GMAT.
He completed his MBA from an Ivy League university.
Among the many tips he offers, he also has an interesting and unusual suggestion (along with a personal example).
Instead of simply looking at the GMAT as a test, consider it as an opportunity to learn some important life skills.
