1) Get Yourself Really Stressed Out.
In order to really hinder your ability to learn new information and memorize GMAT concepts, be sure to get stressed out to the max. Put yourself under a lot of pressure and resist taking breaks or coming up for air while studying. This will ensure that you can’t sleep, get plenty headaches, become constipated and incredibly irritable. Plus, being stressed means that you might not need food, because stress inhibits your appetite. So you can save some money and time cooking, and spend more time studying off an empty tank!
2) Go With What Sounds Natural on the Verbal Section.
“Hey, I don’t care if what the GMAT takers say, I’m a native English speaker and I know what sounds natural!”
Forget about the standard rules of English, which the GMAT emphasizes, and focus on the grammar and expressions that are used everyday, and sound natural.
3) Blow Your Timing!
Spend loads of time on the problems that you can’t solve. This way you will never get to the ones that you can solve, but you might, might just be able to crack the most difficult ones, eventually. Yay!
4) Protect Your Ego.
Don’t hurt your pride - stick with a question until you’ve solved it. You don’t want to admit that you can’t do it, so keep trying it until you work out the answer! Yes, even if it takes 20 minutes. You’ll feel good at the end of it.
5) Don’t Prepare Physically for the Test.
Study the night before until super late, get a terrible night’s sleep, skip breakfast and have 3 cups of coffee instead. You’ll be nice and hungry, jittery and uncomfortable, and won’t be able to focus. Perfect conditions for failing the GMAT!
We hope that, if you are set on failing the GMAT, you find the above tips useful!
