It doesn't mean that if you score below average you can't get a seat at the table. Well, it just means that you need to step up your efforts in your interviews and the rest of your application, so the first thing I want to mention is consistency if you're going on this journey writing the gre or gmat you want. You have to be consistent with your study. This proficiency test is not something you would study for a week and draw for two weeks and then do again three weeks later. No, you have to be consistent. People have different lives.

Have a calendar where you can take your study days and plan the things you want to study on those days. It will help you stay on track instead of just procrastinating or not knowing your progress. It's been like this: it's important that you have a strategy, it's not just about the amount of resources you have, you can have all the applications. I'm going to list a few that you know, they have all the apps, all the resources and you don't have great ones yet. scores so you need to have a strategy for how you intend to study and pass now some examples of apps I use for mobile apps I used on my phone while practicing for the gre are gre prep and Practice by magoosh gre vocabulary flashcards manhattan Vocabulary preparer for the makush gre study test   and gre vocabulary crosswords.

I especially like the cards because you know they just show up on your phone and you keep swiping cards like every chance I felt like it was um, I'm just making time, maybe I'm eating or I'm just waiting in a line or I just don't have much to do at that time. moment. I just open my phone and keep swiping the cards so that new words appear that you can memorize and become familiar with. One thing I suggest and highly recommend is that you take notes writing down these new words. If you find that it is not enough to look at them and feel that you have mastered them, you should write them down along with the meaning.
Take one more step. Using those words in your daily life, I know it may sound, it may be a little ridiculous because the words are sometimes very big words, right, that ordinary people wouldn't really understand, but again, there are some other words that you can actually apply and It helps when you say these words to your colleagues or you know at home, it helps with retention and in fact, when you say something that someone has no head and they ask you what it means, right? You are able to regurgitate what you have learned or not and find that you don't really master the word, so it is helpful to say those words in your daily life to get the GRE study materials you need to go to ets.org. gre which is the exam body for the gre and they have the official guide where you can access the resource you need to study for the gre, besides this I also use the magosh study plan, I paid a subscription, I don't remember how much it was exactly on this moment, but I would find a link and put it in the description of how you can get access to my Bush resources, so a combination of the official ets gre study guide and my omg study materials was what I Used to ​​​​study, some people also use the manhattan gre prep study guide for testing or I mentioned when I was talking about the flashcard that it is helpful to practice at least 20 new words every day or every time you practice, at least try practice 20 new words for the analytical writing assessment, which is the awa, which is usually the first section of the

grad

uation exam and is the most overlooked aspect of the exam.
Now many people just go ahead to study verbal and quantitative, but they don't really put in much practice for the s8 rhythms, which is the awa. Now, keep in mind that this is the first section you will encounter on your exam and your performance on this could affect your disposition towards the other verbal or quantitative section, so it is important that you take some time to practice essay writing within a specific amount of time so that you can block it out like 30 minutes and look at other topics that you have noted in the study materials so that you can write about them and time yourself.
While writing about them, make sure that what you are writing makes sense and you are able to correct what you have written in the specified time. Another tip that I highly recommend is to try all the practice tests in the study material. Yes. It may seem daunting and that is why you should start now, as ideally you should. If you plan to be admitted in 2023, you should plan to take all of the study materials or take all of the practice exams in the study materials. You can also continue with ets. website, they have online mock study tests that you can take.
I would recommend doing a practice test at least every two weeks so you can see what your progress is like and be able to see where you need to make modifications now that it's finally there. important that you believe in yourself it is very important that you believe in yourself um your internal attitude will affect your external appearance towards things so before you even enter the exam have a success mentality before you even start studying just have a success mentality that you understand well the things you are studying and that would definitely be your story. Now here's a sample strategy for possible admission in 2023, so this is someone who will be applying this year to get into business school next year.
Right now, We are currently in March 2022, let's say you don't know anything about gre or gmat and you don't have any resources that you can use this month to research and find more resources online, like this video that talks about grio. the gmat i mentioned before, the difference between gre and gmat is that the gre is verbal heavy and the gmat is quant heavy, so many people who consider their strengths in verbal usually take the gre and those who consider their strengths in math quantitative, you know, numbers, they usually take the gmats, so you can use this month to really decide what you want to write about and gather your resources, your materials and prepare yourself mentally for, you know, the weeks of study ahead of you, then in April April May June Definitely step up your studying, create your study calendar, have your accountability partners track your progress.
I've talked about this in my previous video, and if you'd like to join my accountability group, you would do that too. We put the link below so that you can connect with people who are in the same phase as you and so that you can continuously track your progress so that in April and June you definitely increase your study and prepare to write the exams at the end of June um, hopefully, you'll get the score you really want and you can agonize, if not, sometimes people take another two months to rewrite exams. Hopefully this wouldn't be the case for you, just write it down once and you can distress yourself. you know, you have a chance to calm down, stay calm because there is still work ahead of you, right, you still need it, you still need to hand in your application, you still need to write your essays, you still need to prepare for the interviews, so if you have your gre scores for June July at least   you have two months, you know, to rest and prepare for the application cycle for the schools that are opening in September and October, so I think this is a good strategy for anyone who is a prospective 2023, admit yes Do you have any question for me.
