Most likely you will be scoring in the 650 bracket...
If you want to achieve 700+ on gmat , u must score 700+ on Mock tests.
I do not want to discourage you. But its the time to instill confidence in you. So avoid any further studies and focus on what you have learnt untill now.

If you are adamant about 700+ score...request u to consider postponing the test.

can u be specific whethet timing is an issue or concept is the issue. Mostly , students think that they lack concept on verbal , but that turns up to be wrong, because its timing which affects the final verbal score.

Hi Archit...

Took one Mre Manhattan CAT ystrday... 690 (Q-45, V-38)

I guess some silly mistakes in quant and the notion that SC will grill me gets on my nerves during the tets.
Everytime am so eager to reach to the verbal section....so as to see how is the performance this time that I end up finishing my quant almost 15 mins early and verbal almost 10 mins early...every single time... :(. Last few questions in verbal feel the heaviest....I just glide thru them in order to view the score.. :(

got any strategy to curb it...?? :oops:

Hi ankita
Have responded to your PM..
I think there is no reason to panic. you are almost there. A perfect combination of verbal and quant is really difficult... So find out the scoring range for verbal and quant.
I think V 38 is good score...and is capable of sailing you thru 700...just make sure that you get 47 in quant..you are done.

Consider kudos if my post helps!!!!!!!!!
