NTS GAT Exam Day Tips

Advanced prepping and smart strategizing apart, a winning attitude can be the morale booster you need to ace the GAT. Here are some tips on doing your best on exam day.

Create a Schedule

Set a study schedule based on your current situation (are you devoting your full time to studies, are you employed, are you managing a business, etc.), your study habits, and your strengths and weaknesses based on the skills necessary for this exam. Choose the hours for GAT preparation wisely; this is when you should have both the free time and energy to completely devote yourself to the task at hand.

Don’t Judge

It’s not the end of the world if you cannot solve a GAT problem involving ninth grade math. Don’t let what you don’t know get in the way of what you can learn and achieve. Set aside any feelings of shame or dejection, and stay motivated to correct your mistakes and pick up smarter, better ways of navigating this exam.

Visualize Success

Visualization is a powerful tool that can alter your environment, changing the way your mind and body react to your surroundings. When attempting practice tests, imagine that it’s D-Day and prepare yourself for what’s ahead. Visualize peak performance on the big day. Spend time every day imagining the various details of each test. This mental preparation will carry over to the actual test day and help you tackle questions with precision and clarity.

Meditation and quiet time can work wonders for calming your nerves and relaxing your mind. If you often tend to get anxious about taking the GAT, you can try two very effective and simple yoga breathing exercises.

Make Time for Hobbies and Socialization

Cramming for the NTS GAT and staying indoors all day on weekends can take a toll on your mental and physical health. Make some time for hobbies and socializing to clear your mind, think optimistically, and benefit from the encouraging words of support from family and friends.

Last but not the least, take good care of yourself. Eat a nutritious diet and get the physical activity your body needs to build stamina. Don’t sacrifice sleep, and maintain a sense of humor about the GAT.
