It's over! And an awesome mark on my first attempt. Just wanted to share some insight to those taking the test aiming for 99th percentile.

Quant

I was expecting to get a 51 since it was my strength by far, but I was a couple of minutes late after the break so I was a bit stressed. I found a couple of questions that were extremely easy by the middle of the exam so I was worried I might had done several mistakes at the beggining. I still got a 50 so no need to worry. Also I believe is a high 50 since many people get 760 with a 50/44 split.

Verbal

44 was an amazing score for me. I really struggled with Sentence Correction at the beggining of my preparation. Manahattan's book really helped me. At the day of the exam Sentence Correction was already a stregth. I could answer all the questions with a high degree of certainty.

I have always been good with Critical Reasoning so no worries here (I also did not get a bold question). The last two were especially tricky but I had a lot of time left so I think I got them right. Reading Comprehension was much easier than I expected. I found the last passages of the OG very long and tricky, but those in my exam were much easier. Also it helped that the difficulty was increasing, starting from a very easy first text in the first 10 questions.

Good luck with your exam guys! Especially I want to point out how important is to improve in Verbal to get a high mark for those who are good at maths. Getting 50 or 51 in quant is almost the same; however, if you devote the time to Verbal your mark will really benefit!

Note: I might expand a bit later/tomorrow when I have more time

Hey congrats on your score,

It would be useful if you could explain how did u prepare for Verbal and the books that you have used?

Do u recon that for non native english speakers preraring OG 12 and Verbal guide is sufficient for improving in gmat verbal, i.e. if one manages to go though all the questions of OG verbal and solve them then is it sufficient?

How many times did u solve OG, i read that many people recommend going through OG 12, Verbal guide twice and thrice but is it really useful when you might be able to remember the answers for the questions when your solving the problems the 2nd time, one would feel very bored?

How were CR, RC questions i.e. in difficulty compared to OG?

Comming to Math, how were the real time exam questions, were they equivalent to OG?

How much time did u spend on preparation?

Eok, congratulations on your score. Could you please answer the following questions:


1) Could you describe thoroughly describe your preparation (length of preparation, error log, number of CATs, study material, revision strategy)?

2) Could you describe you daily study routine?

3) How did you deal with fatigue when studying?

4) Do you have a full time job and if so, how did you manage to combine studying with working?

5) How confident were you after finishing your preparation and what about your confidence on the test day?

6) Could you describe the level of your concentration during preparation? Did you time yourself?

Thanks.
