If i write my gmat with only the quants and the verbal section then my scores are
q49 v35 (this is my target score with +/-2 variation)
When I write the full test which includes AWA, IR, quants and verbal, my verbal score dips way too much
q47 v25 (this happens on a consistent basis)
Both the tests are from the official gmatprep. These reflect in my Manhattan tests as well.
Can anyone give me a way out of this?
There is not much to add to crackgmatg's response. The best thing you can do for your practice is mimic the testing environment and timing as much as possible.
One thing that I would add to this is that you should take advantage of the breaks. You should be standing up and stretching during this time. Also bringing a small healthy snack and water to the test will help to fight exhaustion. So you should do the same thing when you are practicing. Take a break, stretch, and eat a small snack. Last tip is to pay attention to your focus. You know when you start to lose focus and have to re-read something you just read. This is not ideal. So, take 10 seconds, close your eyes, and take deep, long, deliberate breaths. Think of it as hitting the reset button. Just a few moments away from the test, focused on breathing, will give you the energy to press on.
Best of luck with your studies.
