560 on actual test after Kaplan Advantage, Help! [#permalink] New post 21 May 2012, 12:53
I took the Kaplan Advantage on site class, and was scoring low to mid 600s on my CATs and got a disappointing 560 today. I am trying to get into a top 10 school and would like to score between 700 and 750 so any advice on how to better prepare would be greatly appreciated. I feel I spent too much time reviewing Quant in the last week because my Verbal CAT scores were 70-80 percentile however, the Quant is my weakness as I have only scored around 65% on my best CAT and would like to break 80.

I am considering either using Kaplan's "Higher Score Guarantee" and enrolling in the Advanced Anywhere program, trying knewton, or purchasing MGAT guides.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Matt,

I'm really sorry to hear that you didn't get the score you were looking for. I know it can be frustrating, but I'm glad to hear that you're determined to stick with it and achieve your goals!

It's hard to give advice without specifics. For that reason, I highly recommend that you reach out to your Kaplan teacher in person. He or she will be able to look at your practice test performance, talk about how you did in classes, and hopefully give you some personalized recommendations that will help. But, I can take a shot in the dark over the internet: whenever I see a student whose real test is much lower than their diagnostics, I always ask them about the day before and the day off the actual test. Did you sleep? Eat? Study too much, stay up too late? Were you nervous or stressed out? If you can pin down any factor that might have negatively impacted your score, you are that much closer to eliminating the problem and doing better on your next go around.

Hope this helps!

Eli
