Learn This 700+ GMAT Time Management Mindset

GMAT Time Management 700+As you know by now, the GMAT is a computer-adaptive test (CAT). Part of what that means is that you can’t get to the next question until you answer the one currently on your screen. Whether you know how to do it or not. Whether it’s early in a section or later in the section. In other words, there’s no skipping a question and coming back to it.

What does this mean for you? It means that there will be times when you’ll be forced to guess on a question you don’t know how to do (unless, of course, you want to spend all of your remaining time on that one question, which isn’t advisable).

But here’s something you may never have thought about before: You may even want to guess on questions that you could possibly figure out, given enough time, in order to save some of that precious time for future questions. Believe it or not, such a strategy could actually lead to a higher GMAT score for you in the long-run!

You might be asking yourself, Wait, you’re telling me that I should flat-out guess on certain questions knowing that I’m likely to get them wrong?

Sometimes, Yes.

See, there’s a crucial interplay between TIME and ACCURACY on the GMAT that you need to master in order to break into the 700’s. A lot of students know how to do the relevant math tested on the GMAT, for example. But only those students who learn how to do it in the allotted time — or, to buy themselves more time with which they can answer some of the harder questions later in a section — are able to separate themselves from their peers and get a GMAT score worthy of the top business schools.
