GMAT is no easy exam to score. And considering global competition, it becomes all the more difficult test:

  1. Start early: picking up the technicalities of a language takes time and effort. It does not happen overnight or over the span of a few days. Get a head start on it.
  2. Seek help from trusted sources: sometimes, just sometimes, YouTube can come in handy in case of academics. There are some good tutorial videos on YouTube which can assist you in acquiring the finesse that is required in the examination paper.
  3. Practice: practice make sperfect and that hold good for improving linguistic skills as well. Revisit any high school memory of your English classes, you might recall that oue English teachers asked us to do reading practice. Reading and writing practice can be beneficial in improving grammar.
  4. Pop quiz:  a few websites conduct daily quizzes specifically designed for GMAT. A daily practice of 10 or so questions will help you speed up you problem solving skills.
  5. Placards: you can make placards or buy the ones available in the market. These placards have the words along with their meaning written on it. You can memorise maybe 5 of those words a day and then with practice you can increase the number of words to 6, 7 and so on.
  6. Read: read books, magazines, blogs or newspaper; whatever interests you. Go for materials that have a little high standard English, something different from the regular language that we use. Pick up some novels by old English authors. It may seem tiring at first but it is bound to pay off the fruits.
  7.  Practice the past year papers: they will give you an idea about the level of preparation that you need to take, in order to crack the exam.
  8. Word meanings: try to figure out the meanings of words from their context. It is humanly impossible to memorize the meaning of every word og the English lexicon.  So when you do come across a word that you don’t know, see the context in which the word has been used.
  9. Flashcards: you can use tine sticky notes to write word meanings on them and place them near your study desk. It is easier to remember things when you write them down in your own handwriting.
  10. ESL classes: if you English is very poor and not upto the required standards you may need to sign up for English as Second Language(ESL) classes online or offline.
