690(Q51;V18) on Kaplan Diagnostic (CAT 1) [#permalink] New post 26 Oct 2013, 10:56
Yeah, poor verbal score. Lost focus midway through verbal section.

I have few questions:
1. How correct is my final score of 690? 18 on Verbal is shown as 15th percentile. How can Q51 offset the pathetic verbal score so much?
2. How do I handle the pressure during verbal section?

As you can see, Verbal was a total disaster.
I managed the Math section fine but during verbal I was not even able to read the question properly against the ticking clock. I do alright while practicing. I have completed practicing 50% of OG13 against a timer(90 sec for SC and 105 sec for CR) and i rarely find any wrong answers here. Haven't practiced RC yet.

Hi,
It looks like your problem is not verbal. Its maintaing concentration for 4 hours.
Keep on doing what you are doing + start sitting for 3-4 hours straight.

Give another test after 1-1.5 week of practicing this. You should see the improvement.

Good luck..
