1. Nothing is perfect…and that is why in each round of interviews you have 3+ interviews because even the best candidates sometimes screw up in 1 out of 3 interviews (could be stress, case context, etc.) so rest assured that there will always be cases or interviews that you will not fully nail and it is ok…shift your mindset away from perfection
2. It is important to note that it is not about the “quantity” of the cases but rather the quality of the preparation as well as your starting point..
3. MINDSET is key! yes, it is highly competitive, yes practice makes perfect, yes there are so many factors that affect whether you get in or not (the case, the interviewer, your state of mind on that day, who else is interviewing before/ after you, etc.) so you have to reach a point where you are just comfortable and confident with where you stand (if you doubt yourself, how can others not doubt you? You must have felt your progress throughout your preparation process and feel comfortable now in doing cases even if some of them are kind of hard to crack) and are ok with the outcomes knowing you have done your part, have worked on your development areas and this is IT…
