Hi,

I noticed that my scores go down progressively as I do more blocks in a practice test setting with full 7 blocks.

Looking over the answers, I got so many easy questions wrong that I knew the answer to.. I picked like the most ridiculous answers for reasons I do not understand...

So my score for the block decreases progressively starting from 1st block to the last block.

Any one experience the same issue? and any advice on how to work on this?
I would hate to have this happen to me on the real exam.


thanks!

i made similar mistakes when preparing, but the amount of questions that i made mistakes on decreased as i continued practicing questions. so just keep on going and dont worry, the more questions you do then the less silly errors you'll make.

Its a common complaint due to exhaustion.

Try doing 3 blocks at a time for a few days, do 4 for a few and then just continue to increase it gradually. Over time, you should be practicing with 8 blocks per day (so you still have juice left during your actual exam by the end) the last month of your preparation.

Good luck
