after practicing for the Q part for about 3 weeks now, I have finally done my first whole mock test (not AWA though).
My score was 550 Q46 (12W/36) and V20 (20W/41)...I was really surprised with the high Q score because I expected differently with 12 wrongs. But obviously the V part was somewhat dissappointing.
Is a V score of 20 normal if you have never done it before?
Is there a realistic chance of getting V to 35 or higher? (I am not a native)
I am aiming for 650 - 680, should I now concentrate on V or polish my Q a bit more?
Cheers for the head up,
First, congrats on a decent baseline, but a very good Q score!
What service did you take the mock test through? (MGMAT, GmatPrep, etc)
I see you're not a native English person, but a 20V is below average - About the 19th percentile. The average is ~ 28. It is certainly realistic to score over 35, but you'll have to put some effort in.
You've got some work ahead of you to reach your target, but it is not impossible.
