Thank you for your kind words of appreciation AasaanHai.
Firstly let me say that despite what your actual GMAT scores are, your GMAT Prep scores indicate that you do have the potential to cross the 600 mark.
However, your performance on the actual GMAT could have been affected by one or more of the following reasons.
a. You might know the concepts tested on the GMAT, but you might be lacking the application skills of those concepts.
b. You might not be having a systematic approach to solve the questions.
c. Your performance might have been affected under the exam pressure. (This again is because of a lack of systematic approach)
I would say that it’s time for you to take a brief pause, look back and think about why the process adopted by you hasn’t worked because 7 weeks of focused preparation must result in improvement.
Appropriate planning and diligent execution are quite important for anyone to succeed on the GMAT. The first thing you need to do is to properly assess your strengths and weaknesses, especially in the verbal section since that is where you seem to be facing trouble. (You can take the SC
diagnostic tests which are a part of e-GMAT
’s free trial).
Then you need to work on your weaknesses and also bolster your strengths at the same time.
I suggest you take an online course which helps you do the same. You can try our course for free
(We offer about 20% of our course contents for free). See if it suits your needs.
Let me mention that we get a number of people who are in your shoes. What you are trying to accomplish is very doable and has been accomplished by numerous non-natives.

is the success story of Sandeep who improved from V21 to V41.
Once again, it is important that you stay positive and do not get bogged down. Remember that the things required for GMAT preparation are positive outlook, strategic planning, and diligent implementation.
Feel free to write to me in case of further queries.
