And I ruined it once again
Almost 15days have passed since my last test; I took the 2nd practice test today and missed it once again.
Before giving 2nd test, I concentrated mainly on CR section, read PowerScore CR
bible once again and practiced about 1st forty questions of OG 10
, revised first 7 chapters of Manhattan SC guide.
After fifteen days of my 1st test, my split for the today’s practice test was V26 and M39 (overall 550!) My split for the 1st practice test was V28 and M40 (overall 570!) 1st-shock-practice-test-95079.html
Today also, on the Math section I was confident (over confident kills!) that I’m doing well but in the end I messed up everything! Today on PS section I did well and scored 82% and on DS section, I performed poorly and made only 60% correct. I have been always confident on DS section but this poor score made me cry! Though, I was doing good on Math section but was shocked after seeing my result!
On verbal part, though I improved on the CR section but overall my performance was heart breaking! On very first question, I got RC question that made me nervous. I never had imagined that I’ll get very first question on RC! Today, I scored only 50% on RC as against the 64% on my 1st practice test! Passages on RC sections were all of 60 lines! I messed up! Then 67% correct on CR section, many questions were from “assumptions”, those are considered tough! My bad luck!
What is hurting me the most is my performance on SC section. On my first test, I made 80% questions correct. But, today on 2nd practice test I made only 60% correct. I missed 2 questions on “subjunctive” and 1 question from “parallel construction” and 1 from “when/where”. I hadn’t practiced on SC section since my 1st practice test. I think regular practice is needed!
I’m feeling ashamed of my score on DS and SC mainly. The sections which I always considered my best! Credit goes to NIGHT SHIFT also for my poor perfromance! I worked last night at office and was feeling low. I had planned to take this test, so I took and got this shocking score!
I still have to go through almost all the official guides (OG10
and Math, Verbal Reviews)! I hope official guides will help me to improve further.
There are still 35 days to go for the real GMAT. I need a score of 650-670 on GMAT. Please help me friends, how to improve?
