How can Mock Tests Help You Prepare for the GRE


Well, if you are going to take the GRE, maybe in two months time from now, a lot is at stake to get that dream score you want (not less than 315 at least!)

So maybe the one month whisks away with you attending the GRE Online coaching, preparing with the GRE books, and even learning up a lot of vocabulary. After all this, your prep will still be incomplete without taking a few mock tests.

Advantages of mock tests:

1. Familiarity with a timed test:

All this while you have probably just worked the questions to get them accurate. But does the GRE test actually wait till you get the accurate answer? NO! Hence, when you take a mock test, you will, rather you should, do so with the seriousness and focus of the actual test in mind. You learn to pace the entire test well so that no question is left blank.

2. Your self-evaluation counts:

Your self-evaluation

With every mock test you take during your GRE prep, you are going to evaluate your score and performance in the Verbal and Quant sections. This is a much needed and mandatory exercise because, without self-analysis, you just don’t know where you are heading. A piece of advice here is that you should sit with your faculty for your review so that you get a good understanding of- what went wrong. Was it a careless mistake? Was it a concept you did not know? Was it that you were short of time and hence rushed through the question? This error log you make is going to make you tick off what you need to focus on for the next mock test. And this has to be done separately for the Quant and Verbal. All the above should be covered during your GRE course.

3. Power prep tests from ETS give the ultimate boost:

These are the mock tests that you necessarily need to take within a fortnight of your actual exam. These are tests given by the test makers. These tests give the actual scenario of the GRE and give you more confidence and determination to give your best! So the performance in these two prep tests and the score you get in them is what is going to reflect in your actual GRE.

Don’t you think then that skipping mock tests and the prep tests would be a blunder? When you have these tests to aid your performance and boost your score, make the best of it! So, in a nutshell, taking mock tests helps you work the questions better, strategize better, manage time better and boost your self-confidence! And when you are armed with the above, your dream score WILL be achieved! All the very best!!
