Nervous before the GMAT

Hello,

I've been studying the GMAT for several months now - on / off because I work and have already cracked 700+ in several practical tests.

Only when it comes to fixing a test day do I get scared. From university I am used to having covered a subject area before an exam in such a way that I can say with a high probability that I will leave the exam with at least one, two or even one.

At the GMAT I regularly come across so many new tasks that I have absolutely no plan for how to solve and that makes me nervous.

I think a lot of the people here were in a similar situation, everything is totally different from what we are used to from university because there is no fixed date.

There will never be perfection so just book and if it doesn't work out, just try again, right?

Just do it. On the day of the test, I also felt like the pig on the slaughterhouse (as I did during the Abi exam and later the tax advisor exam;)). While the excitement makes it difficult to get to the test site (walking and cycling with soft legs is difficult), it makes your mind alert and sharp.

Thank you, really had to smile! :-)

Really never had fear of exams - regardless of whether it was university or high school .. I actually never had the risk of being negative at an exam and accordingly all exams were only a small part of the big picture.

The weighting of the GMAT, on the other hand, is so incredibly high that I am still totally unfamiliar with this situation.

What motivates me is that in my practice tests I got quite wrong even with 720-730 scores, which gives me the confidence that I can do a lot wrong on test day for> 700

This is normal and is probably the same for everyone. Compared to normal university exams, I also sweated a lot before the day. In addition to the opportunities associated with a good (or even bad) result, I also found the test fee high enough to build up a certain pressure.

At the end of the day, everyone feels the same way. So I wouldn't worry too much about that. I had 720 in the trial test, then 690 in the real test - and even pretty beaten the quant. In this respect there is definitely also "room for error".

I wish you success

Anyone who wants or has to prove their knowledge of foreign languages ​​in a student or professional environment will sooner or later not get around an official language certificate. However, it is not always easy to find the flood of information on the subjects of "language tests", "language exams" and "language diplomas". If you want to take a language certificate, you should first find out exactly which proof is required in the specific case and how you can best prepare for the respective language exam.

A year abroad can have many incentives, better language skills, the desire to develop personally or simply the desire to travel. Regardless of whether it is a student exchange, language trip, au pair stay, internship abroad or study abroad, in a global world of work, career opportunities increase with every experience abroad.

Studying abroad or a semester abroad can be expensive. Saving the change you need for this can be done through part-time jobs or the parental allowance. However, the savings are often far from being sufficient. There are numerous ways in which you can get funding for your studies abroad in Germany. Auslandsbafög, education loans, scholarships, Erasmus & Co - WiWi-TReFF shows what support there is.

Whether greater self-confidence or increased language skills: a stay abroad during your studies ensures improvement in many areas. Children from non-academic families perceive this effect to be even more pronounced in certain areas. This is shown by an analysis by the CHE Center for University Development.

In 2015, almost 140,000 German students were enrolled to study abroad. The most popular host countries include Austria, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Popular destinations for short semesters abroad are Great Britain, the USA, France and Spain. Currently, more than a third of all students spend part of their studies abroad. In 2017, more than 355,000 foreign students were enrolled at German universities for the first time.

More and more German students want to study internationally: In 2014 137,000 students went abroad. The neighboring country Austria is the most popular, followed by the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Business students are particularly drawn to the Netherlands.

The goal of learning a language intensively and up close is a great side effect of studying abroad. But before the acceptance at a foreign university is successful, prospective students first have to prove whether they already speak the language. The six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​(GES) provide information about the extent to which the understanding of a foreign language is sufficient. For this purpose, various language certificates have been developed that are recognized by universities, companies and other institutions for applications. Depending on which country comes into question, a certificate in TOEFL, IELTS, DELF, DALF or DELE must be proven.

The university rectors from Germany and Great Britain expect devastating consequences for studies and research after a possible Brexit. The EU makes it easier for researchers to work together, share resources and share important data. Students from both countries also benefit from this. There are currently 13,765 degree-seeking students and 4,428 Erasmus students from Germany in Great Britain.

English master’s courses are in great demand among companies and business students. A business master's abroad helps to orientate your studies internationally. Native-speaking master's programs such as the one at Griffith College Dublin in Ireland impart excellent knowledge of English in addition to economic content.
