Hey guys...I am terribly stuck..My GMAT is in 12 days and I've been getting very inconsistent scores..most of the times it is around its 600..sometimes its 650 or 670 but thats not been my target..There is absolutely no consistency...I have 12 days to go and I really need to know how I can improve my scores...My target is to atleast manage a 700...Really really desperate

Any advice will be appreciated

Thanks

Well... it is hard to say but if your scores are inconsistent, that's a good chance you lack a topic (some tests you hit geometry more and some tests you hit it less) the same is with verbal - that's what it is telling me.

I would not have a lot of confidence in getting 700+ frankly.

Your best best is to find those weakness areas and see if you can squash them in the next 12 days.

Hey...I am having problems understanding where exactly I am lacking...sometimes i do great in RC ..sometimes i get an accuracy of 40%..Its just very frustrating....I do know that DS is not my cup of tea and I have been working on it for some time now...I am stuck and I dont know what to do,how to proceed...I have been watching Ron's tutorials to improve my verbal score...they are helpful but not enough...I got ten days to go...What is it that I should do?

Postpone for 2-3 months if you are not applying this year. A sub par score looks bad on the score card, costs 5 times as rescheduling 1 time, and will leave you burnt-out.

Hi Ananya,
I understand your dilemma but to be really honest, if your accuracy varies greatly across all sections I wouldn't recommend that you give the exam in 8-10 days because you won't be able to rectify this problem in such a short span. Unless you have very compelling circumstances its better if you postpone.

If you do decide to go ahead then you could score b/w 600-650 (on the basis of your current situation) btw R2 deadlines are almost over so there shouldn't be a rush to give the test (do correct me if I'm wrong). Your score variance could be because you concentrate on a section/ topic in isolation without revising/ reviewing your previous work and there are always some topics in each section you find difficult, you need to work on those as asap. you haven't mention your q/v split so i can't say which section needs more work , if its verbal then SC is most learnable (for most people) in a short time span. if its quant then please get topics such as- divisibility, prime nos, remainders, exponent, mean-median, algebraic equations, %, fractions, time & distance in order. gmat culb math books is great source for revision.

Ron's videos are great , but their techniques take time to be internalized esp CR, quant back up methods, etc. and most importantly If timing (failure to complete any section or rushing towards the end ) is a problem get it out of the way first because than alone can boost you score by 30 points or so (I'm quite serious about this).

May be going through these articles below can help you makeup your mind-
