Client Profile #1: MG
Looking to shift from a successful career in banking, MG has decided to apply to US business schools.
Doing so will allow him to “change careers and combine my skills and experience with personal interests and passions.”
MG discovered the GMAT when applying for a postgraduate program at the London School of Economics.
What did he think of the exam, having never heard of it before?
“My initial impression was that most questions are based on previous knowledge/existing skills and that there is little you can do to improve your score.”
Certain types of problems also created significant anxiety, particularly Probability and Comibinatorics (counting problems) and lengthy Reading Comprehension passages.
By the time of the exam, MG says that the majority of his concern was overcoming fear and anxiety rather than lack of preparation.
However, MG feels that he could have spent more time working on practice CATs in order to improve his timekeeping on the actual exam—“This is a very long test!”
However, MG soon learned that “there are a number of techniques and shortcuts that you can learn in order to boost your score.”
This led to “realisation that I could achieve significant improvements in my score by using techniques and shortcuts that only a tutor could teach me.”
MG says that, ultimately, “‘GMAT thinking’ is about looking at the answers and finding the one that best fits the question,” and “there are a number of techniques and shortcuts that you can learn in order to boost your score.”
After much disciplined self-study, MG realised that “I could achieve significant improvements in my score by using techniques and shortcuts that only a tutor could teach me.”
Adding weekly consultations over a six-week period to his dedicated work at home, MG reached an impressive 730 on the GMAT!
