2 Questions regarding GMAT [#permalink] New post 02 Jan 2005, 21:26
1. It is usually suggested that one should draw the elimination grid at the start of the test. I think that this grid is more useful for the Verbal section than it is for the Math section. Since one has to turn in used scratch paper to get new one, when should one draw the grid for the verbal section w/o losing time (assuming that one uses all 6 sheets in the 1st set)? Can one keep one sheet from the earlier scratch paper & include it in the second set that's given?

2. For someone who is taking the test the second time and has a decent score on the essays written earlier, would skipping the AWA have a -ve impact in the application process (MBA/PhD)? If so, then one could write just one essay to calm down & move on to the Q & V sections.
Motivation for such a strategy: Lack of stamina.

Would appreciate yr views...

Thanks,

No, all sheets have to be turned in when leaving for the break.
I didnt use a grid. I simply wrote down the alphabets for the answer choices each time a new question was presented.

Atleast I would never try the skipping part. it would bother me for the rest of the application process, no matter what the adcomms say. treat AWA as a way to mentally prepare for the math and verbal.

The best solution is to take a lot of practise tests in their entirety. Dont skip the essays in practise tests.
