Strategies for GMAT Exam

edwise-logo

May 2016

The GMAT is a computer adaptive test and is used to measure your ability to think systematically using the knowledge and skills you have acquired throughout your schooling years. It is further divided into three sections, a Writing section that consists of one analysis of an argument essay, the new Integrated Reasoning section, a Quantitative test and a Verbal test. You can take an optional five minute break between each section

The Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency areas of the GMAT require knowledge of mathematical principles, including understanding the fundamentals of algebra, geometry, arithmetic and the ability to interpret graphs. The quantitative section of the GMAT is composed of both data sufficiency and problem solving questions

Test- Taking Strategies

  • Remember to spend more time with the first initial questions, as these questions set the level of difficulty for the remaining test
  • Ensure that you finish each section, the GMAT will not penalise you for a wrong answer, so if you are running out of time, take a guess on the final questions
  • Keep track of your time and the number of questions left to be answered
  • Remember that you cannot go back to the previous question, so confirm your answer only when you are confident
  • Once you confirm a section exit, you cannot go back. Do not click on the quit test command unless you want to end the session

Strategies for the Quantitative section

Problem Solving

There are a few problems in the GMAT that test your basic mathematical skills. Some of these problem solving questions will involve your understanding of mathematical concepts. Many problems will require you to integrate different mathematical ideas or translate a verbal problem into a mathematical one in order to find the solution. Given below are some tips that can be used for problem solving questions.

  • Carefully budget your time, to ensure that you finish the test
  • Read the question carefully, and be sure that you answer the question that is asked
  • Be familiar with your answer choices before you begin to work on a problem
  • Use your laminated note board to work out problems
  • Keep track of the units in a problem, make sure that your answer has the correct units
  • Use numerical values to find answers that involve formulas and variables
  • Translate the information you are given into numerical or algebraic equations to start working a problem

Data Sufficiency

For a Data Sufficiency type of question, you will be asked a question and, will then be given two additional statements. You must decide whether the additional statements give enough information to answer the question. These questions in turn do not have the same testing skills as problem solving. Mentioned below are some strategies that can be used for data sufficiency problems

  • Do not try attempting any data sufficiency problems, if you do not understand the directions
  • If the information given shows that the statement is false, you have enough information to answer the question
  • Do not waste time calculating the exact answer to these type of questions, once you find the answer, choose the correct option
  • Understand and use the strategy discussed previously
  • Use the strategy to make smart guesses on questions you cannot answer, and move on to the next question
  • Never make additional assumptions

IELTS Vs TOEFL

edwise-logo

May 2016

Students who study abroad get the opportunity to take a class that may not be offered in India. The experiences students have while studying abroad ignites their interest in academic pursuits, and they return home with an added vigor toward their coursework. Students get a more well-rounded education that better prepares them for this increasingly global world. When a student studies abroad, he or she will make lifetime friendships with fellow American classmates as well as with native students. The memories and friendships made could last forever and could open the student up to a global network of job prospects and connections. Living and studying overseas fosters a sense of teamwork — as the group travels together, they experience the challenges of a multicultural situation together. They also learn to become dependent, proactive, and are able to provide and solicit help.

If your native language isn’t English, you’ll almost always be required to take an English language proficiency test as part of your application to study abroad at an English speaking university. The two most accepted English language tests worldwide are the International English Language Test System and Test of English as a Foreign Language. Whilst both accurately test your level of English, the two tests differ in their approach, structure and teaching criteria, so you should carefully choose your test as per your university requirement

An Introduction

Test of English Language as a Foreign Language, or popularly known as TOEFL, measures the examinees’ ability to use and understand English at the university level. It scales how well one can combine the Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing skills to perform academic tasks. The TOEFL iBT has more than 50 test dates per year. TOEFL scores are accepted in more than 9,000 colleges, agencies and other institutions in over 130 countries. You can retake the test as many times as you wish, but you cannot take it more than once in a 12-day period. If you already have a test appointment you cannot register for another test date that is within 12 days of your existing appointment. In India, the registration fee is $170

IELTS or the International English Language Testing System is a standardized English Language Proficiency Test jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment. IELTS score is accepted as evidence of English language proficiency by over 8,000 organisations globally. The test is conducted at more than 900 test centres and locations across more than 130 countries. The registration fee is INR 11,100

General Differences

The TOEFL and the IELTS both TOEFL exam questions are almost entirely multiple choice, whereas IELTS requires you to respond to a range of different question types such as short answer, fill in the blanks and short essay tasks. The IELTS is shorter than the TOEFL exam, taking approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes, whereas the TOEFL takes 4 hours to complete

There is only one type of TOEFL exam that is done entirely on the computer, whereas there are two types of IELTS that are both completed on paper, the Academic IELTS exam for students, who wish to pursue undergraduate or postgraduate studies, and the General Training exam for candidates who wish to meet immigration and occupational requirements

Scoring

The speaking and writing sections of the TOEFL are graded based on how they appear as a whole, which includes your range of vocabulary, writing style and grammar. Those of the IELTS are based on separate grades of individual criteria such as your use of logic, cohesion, grammar and fluency.

The IELTS is graded on a band system from 1-9, with your overall score being an average of your separate scores in all four tests. Institutions considering your application are advised to look at both the overall band score and the bands for each component in order to determine whether you have the language skills needed for a particular course of study. TOEFL is a single test that is graded out of 120, with each of the four sections scored out of 30

TOEFL Vs PTE

edwise-logo

May 2016

Ever wonder the difference between these TOEFL and the PTE English tests for university admittance? TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is currently the most common for non- native English speakers. The TOEFL is often a requirement at most colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada and other English-speaking countries. In addition, government agencies, licensing bodies, businesses or scholarship programs might also require the TOEFL. Both the TOEFL and PTE are valid for two years

The Pearson Test of English Academic is recognized by thousands of universities worldwide, the most popular being the UK, Australia, the US and Canada. It is administered by the Graduate Management Admission Council, similar to the TOEFL test, the Pearson Test of English (PTE) tests in all four sections: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. The scoring ranges from 10 to 90, and includes your overall score, communicative skills scores and enabling skills scores. The score is based on performance on all items in the test. The test is computer based and takes about three hours to complete; results are available in 5 working days. You may retake the test as many times as you wish to. The main differences from the TOEFL include:

  • Automated speech and writing scoring providing consistent and accurate grading
  • Score reports offering recorded speech samples to admissions offices at universities worldwide
  • Question types including fill in the blanks, match the items, select multiple answer choices in the same question

The Testing of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is created by the Educational Testing Service and is administered in more than 180 countries, making it the most accessible test in the world. Students can use this test to study in the UK and other European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Korea, in addition to the United States and Canada. The test is scored from 0-30 in each section, on a total of 120, and takes four hours to complete. Results for the TOEFL are available 10 days after the test some tasks require test takers to combine more than one skill. Integrated tasks help learners effectively communicate in academic environments they choose to enter. These tasks require test takers to

  • Read, listen and then speak in response to a question
  • Listen and then speak in response to a question
  • Read, listen and then write in response to a question

What Edwise Students studying TOEFL & PTE says…

I clearly remember the day I started my TOEFL coaching, after seeing the different sections of TOEFL I was sure I won’t pass the test. But my faculty’s support and personalized attention helped me. TOEFL being an internet based test, practice was very important. Edwise provided me with number of mock tests which boosted my confidence. I thank the entire Edwise team for the same
Shabbir Khambati – TOEFL Coaching

My TOEFL class here at Edwise has been started great. I have experienced good changes in my performance. Good attention is given on individual students and the students weakest points are worked upon really well. Totally satisfied! My faculty is awesome teacher and a guide. Learned a lot of things and would surely look forward to my bright future. Thank you Edwise.
Reshmi Bhaduri – TOEFL Coaching

I am writing this testimonial to Edwise International and especially to my tutor for PTE. I was tensed before giving my PTE exam because I got my passport late and I had to clear the exam in a single attempt. I explained the situation to her. She helped me a lot. Those two sessions were really very crucial for me as I scored 77/90 in PTE with 90/90 in speaking. This score has also helped me in getting a part time job in Australia as well. My tutor was very calm, understanding, I am really thankful to Edwise and for the overall experience with a Coaching Dept.

Board scores are also taken into consideration, but continuous assessments from Class 9 to Class 12 are important criteria for USA universities.

Study in UK and USA

APPLICATION TIMING Applications must be submitted eight to ten months before the college year starts (between August and September)

UK- For most students this means that around November of the Class 12 application deadlines begin and continue through February for some colleges.

USA- The majority of deadlines are December 31 of Class 12. Being prepared for application submission takes at least six months, taking into account standardized testing (example, SAT or ACT) and essay writing. So this means in and around May of Class 11 (or 1.5 years before you will attend college), you need to be engaged in the application process, preferably with your testing completed.

NON-ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS While experience is more important for UK colleges, extra- curricular activities are important for the USA

UK- UK colleges are most interested in whether an applicant is prepared to commit to his or her chosen course of study.

USA- USA colleges are seeking well-rounded class of students – they want the incoming batch of students to fit together like a puzzle of people with different strengths and interests who can add diverse perspectives to the campus. For this reason the application process prioritizes strong extra-curricular interests including sports, arts, music, student leadership or social service.

TESTING

UK- Depending on the course of interest, applications to the UK can require testing. You will only come to know the required tests and their timings once you have decided on your course.

USA- Only USA colleges require the SAT.
Imperial College has specific testing requirements for engineering applicants, whereas another college may not require any engineering test. Also, check English proficiency testing requirements carefully – visa processing may require it. And keep in mind that some colleges in the USA do not accept IELTS, though UK accepts only IELTS and not TOEFL.

COURSE SELECTION

UK- UK colleges are like India, students select a course and they are committed to study that subject for three years. There is no option to switch, nor are there cross-disciplinary, add-on subjects.

USA- In the USA, however, students are allowed to change their major course of study within the four years of their college education and/or add on minor subjects of study. In fact, statistics suggest that at least 80% of USA college students change their major at least once. This is allowed because often students discover course options that are more enriching than what they had originally chosen.

These points reflect the basic knowledge students and their families should have if they want to pursue undergraduate studies abroad. Beyond this, there are innumerable nitty-gritty details that need to be attended to before an application is ready. Planning ahead is t he best strategy for success.
