Nistha Singh joined EDHEC’s Master in Management-Business Management in 2021. She achieved an amazing score of 730 on the GMAT exam. She tells us how she prepared for this exam.
I gave 6 hours every day to my preparation as GMAT has various subjects and each subject has chapters which makes it difficult to complete if you don’t have that much time in your hand. I prepared for 5 months and gave my GMAT in January 2021.
I have a good control or knowledge of English so I did not give much attention to it, I focused more on quantitative, math being my weak point. I used to practice math every day for 4 hours and I would practice verbal or writing just to relax after doing all the calculations.
I mostly used my books (GMAT guide by GMAC, and my high school books for maths and CAT books by Arun Sharma) which helped me a lot. and after thinking that I was ready I started doing mock questions as that’s is the best way to understand how much have you retained and how much time management does a person have. I started watching the news to make myself aware of the ongoings happening in and around the world which also enhanced my vocabulary and pronunciation. I also started writing a lot on random topics to improve my time management and improve my spelling errors and language.
My mock helped me to improve my time management. Which finally let me be calm enough to carry out the same during the exam day.
I did Bachelors' in business administration.
The Master in Management has a practical approach combined with theoretical knowledge which makes it interesting. The most challenging part is to balance between being a student and taking out time for yourself.
I have had great experiences like interacting with companies and having workshops for the same but my greatest opportunity to date is to make friends from all around the world!.
Nostalgic, diverse, exuberant.
