Manhattan Verbal score overrated ?? [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2014, 22:01
Hello

I just gave the MGMAT CAT 3 and scored a good 710 (Q45 and V 41) .

On the verbal sections I found a few CR question(7-8) familiar and knew the answers for that already and got them done quickly .

I scored 11 on 14 on CR ,11 on 15 on SC and 9 on 12 on RC , With 8 minutes to spare as I knew the answers already for some question .

Could someone please let me know what is the score I can expect with such a performance (with no familiar questions ) and also areas I need to focus for Verbal section to score about the same in the actual GMAT

Your best bet is to take a GMATPrep practice exam. That is the best "approximation" of the score you will get on the real exam.

To see what you should work on, generate an assessment report of your last few exams and review to see which areas are the weakest and attack those...

I recently wrote both the GMAT prep exams . While the quant score was the same for both

The verbal score dopped by 7 points .

GMAT prep1 :710 (q49,V38)
GMAT perp 2 : 640 (q49,V 31 )

The incorrect questions count in verbal in Prep1 exams were 13 and in perp 2 was 12 . Could someone help me understand what happend ?

I expected the score to be higher this time and it fell like anything . I have GMAT schuduled on 29th ... 4 days left :(

I have scored almost consistently in MGMAT V 37 38 . This is the worst score i have got so far :(

Has anyone face the same issue ..

There are lots of reasons for your score to drop on an individual exam- bad day, bad stretch of problems, a higher concentrations of problems that are your weakness, and on and on. The number of problems wrong is not an indicator of your score because the test is adaptive and almost everyone will miss roughly the same number of questions. Your score is based on the difficulty of the problems you get right/wrong. Unfortunately the GMAT prep exams do not show the difficulty levels of each problem. It would have been interesting to see some of your Manhattan CAT diagnostics.

Since it's past the 29th. How did it go?

Hi Kyle,

I have manhattanGMAT and other mocks. I am currently planning for one mock every week starting from tomorrow. Do you suggest the GMAC paid test.

I have written twice GMAT
700 (50,34) and then 660 (50, 28). I was shocked with my VA drop and I am working on it extensively. I am planning to take again on 1st April.

I have written the MGMT mock 1 and I have got 740 - 48, 43 (48 - horrible mistakes - So will straighten up)
and one kaplan test 1 - 740 - 51/41.
