Hello,

If we go by gmatprep benchmark, a plus/minus of 50 points is the range.

Now, if we want to analyze your current set of skill set, you need to help with two details

1) How good were you at time management ? did you miss a few Qs at the last ?
2) did you take the exam under strict exam conditions ?
3) are you weak on fundamentals part or strategy part of test ? (this is something that you can answer by looking into past at your practice data - were you getting Qs wrong because of lack of knowledge or lack of strategy ? )

Ideally, do not work on anything new in last 10/12 days, work on your error log and your strengths, do not stretch yourself in last days.

Good news is you might work on time management skills to improve, so share answers of above questions and i might help you on the same.

thanks

1) How good were you at time management ? did you miss a few Qs at the last ?--> I completed the practice test with about 10 minutes in Quantz and about 8 minutes in Verbal Left with me.(I finished the two sections earlier).
2)did you take the exam under strict exam conditions ?--> Yes i gave the examination under strict examination conditions.
3)are you weak on fundamentals part or strategy part of test ?---> After analysing the questions that i usually get wrong i cam to the conclusion that i know the basic rules.there was some minor mistake that led to the whole question wrong.

10 days are just about enough to work on 2-3 of your major weaknesses (in areas which have a high weightage in GMAT). Focus on them and try practicing 10 questions of each subsection on a daily basis in addition. Thereafter, just relax your mind.

How could i improve my score in verbal in such a less time.And please tell me from where i can get more such GMAT practice tests as i have only 4 such tests left.And are these tests an accurate indicator.Because sometimes what happens is that i encounter an old question that i had already solved during my practice, and then i usually feel demotivated, as i had already seen this question.And does not feel to solve it.Please help

Try and do the best you can in whatever time you have. It would not be wise to take too many practice tests in the last few days. It will burn you out and you will not feel fresh and vibrant on your test day. Instead work on the sections that bother you the most - is it SC? or CR? or RC? Try and go through the theory of the section. It might help you understand the questions better. Also, do a few questions of each question type everyday from whatever material you have. I think someone has recently put up the GMAT prep test question bank (probably collected questions from the net or something). You can try a few question from that everyday.
