So I gave my second GMATprep practice exam and scored Q47. Given how weak in Math I am , at first glance, I was pretty pleased. I've worked diligently on my Math for the last 3 weeks. Then I noticed the percentile. It's a measly 79 percentile. Which is frustrating, to say the least. However, I was going through the debrief's of people successful on the GMAT which are posted on GMATclub. Many people seem to score Q49 and still get 750 or above on the GMAT. So I guess, what I'm really asking is how much importance should I give to the percentile? And how can I improve my Quant score further?I'm pretty okay at Verbal. GMAT is in one and a half weeks from today.
From what I've read, schools like to see an even split between quant and verbal. I read somewhere that your target should be to get ~80th percentile or better in quant if you're going for a top school - they want to be sure you can handle the math in the coursework. If you're an engineer you probably have a little wiggle room with that (since your undergrad shows you can do higher level math) and the verbal takes slightly higher precedence...if you're a liberal arts major I'm guessing the opposite is true.
