It took me 3 attempts and 2 years to crack GMAT- which was damn slow compared to my peers back in 2016.
I remember being frustrated with my scores!
Similarly, my first week at ISB started with the fantastic award-winning professor teaching Statistics. For the coming days, I sat in his classes awestruck by the concepts, only to be shocked to hear about the quiz in the 2nd week of ISB in which I performed miserably!
My learning style is more application-based than factual-based.
Whenever my brain grasps a new piece of information, the brain first connects it with existing pieces of multi-dimensional knowledge I have already learned and experienced.
In fact, I vividly remember my first 3 terms at ISB not being very conducive because of the grades culture.
Fast forward 9 months in, I had my BCG offer and I remember feeling numb after all the journey.
#Learning for me is like meditation where you uncover yourself beneath the layers. Fast erratic meditation can't replace a slow and consistent meditation.
Go slow. Go deep.
