Ways to avoid silly mistakes in the quantitative section of GRE
Posted on June 16, 2020
The various components of the GRE give room for silly mistakes. In the quantitative reasoning section, there is room for small calculation errors, rounding errors and other small things that need to be tracked when taking the test.
Even though we might understand the concept, know the problem and the method for solving the problem, we might do a silly mistake at the end of the problem, increasing the possibility of losing valuable points in our total score.
Here are some tips to help you avoid making silly mistakes in the quantitative reasoning section of the GRE:
Maintain your focus till the end
When you reach the end of your test, there is a tendency to drop your guard, this can make you lose your focus and cause you to make silly mistakes. The trick here when you are almost at the end of your session, slow down a bit and maintain your focus and concentrate on the problem. Take a short break and come back to the problem.
Maintaining your focus till the end is important, so learn to take breaks during the test by closing your eyes for 10 to 20 seconds, and then get back to the problem. This can help you avoid silly mistakes.
Revise the important formulae
It is better to revise important math formulae, a few days before the test instead of doing practice sums till the last minute. Knowledge of the formulae and techniques to solve problems will help you on the day of the test and help you save time. It will improve confidence and avoid silly mistakes.
The key is to focus till the end track your focus, this way you will be able to do your best during your training sessions and on your test day. You are going to stop making those stupid mistakes on the GRE test and improve your score.
