How do you ensure consistency on test day? I’m at my goal score (790) on practice tests but want to ensure that I don’t have a precipitous drop in score on test day like I hear so many people have (dropping 50-100 points). I don’t have test day anxiety and have usually done well in standardized tests in the past (SAT), but I wasn’t sure if there was anything specific for the GMAT to look out for.

Sleep well the night before. Remember time management, don't look at social media in the hours leading to your test (maybe even the day of entirely), do 2 practice problems for each type of question (CR, SC, DS, PS) an hour or 2 before your test to warm up. Read an economist article the day of to prepare for RC

If you’re taking the test at a testing center, be sure to take your practice tests with a mask on. That’ll be the biggest change during covid era that may influence your testing abilities

Already doing that, thanks!

Seeing a lot of people ask if they need to bump their GMAT score up from like 720 to 760 - NO! It is one part of the application (tick box IMO once you hit 700). Further study is an opportunity cost of writing great essays. Work out your unique selling points with lots of great examples. Do the essays then when you think it’s perfect, leave for 2-3 weeks and reread like you don’t know you - guarantee you’ll redo. Screenshot of areas I typically need to explore (school gives guidance).
