In a prior post, you implied that your score goal was 700+. Here though, you're implying that it's 750/760+. The advice that I would offer depends greatly on the specific score goal that you're after, so we really need to start there. What is your specific score goal?

It's sounds like you're early-on in your studies. Is that true?

You did not respond to the other thread, so I've pasted over my response from there:

Since it's been a month since you took the GMAT, have you taken any FULL-LENGTH CATs (with the Essay and IR sections) since then? And if you have, then how have you scored on each of those CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Those scores are important because if you're not currently close to your score goal, then you should consider pushing back your Test Date. To rescheduled

You mentioned that you took this last CAT under test-like circumstances, so I'd just like to clarify a few details:

1) Did you take the ENTIRE CAT (including the Essay and IR sections)?
2) Did you take it at home?
3) Did you take it at the same time of day as your Official GMAT?
4) Did you ever do ANYTHING during this CAT that you can't do on Test Day (pause the CAT, skip sections, take longer breaks, etc.)?
5) Have you taken this CAT before? Had you seen any of the questions before?

I'm sorry to hear that Test Day didn't go as well as planned. Based on what you've described, there are a variety of different issues that you'll have to deal with before you can score at the desired level (which is essentially 700+). As an aside on the Quant Scaled Scores that you frequently read about - the Q49+ is a score that's achieved by only about 20% of Test Takers (and some of those are people who take the GMAT repeatedly), so that score is NOT as common of an achievement

Taking CATs at home is not a realistic way to prepare for the GMAT. However, if we ignore that issue for a moment, you certainly appear to have the potential to score 700+ on the GMAT. The higher Quant Scaled Score that you're after is going to come down to the little mistakes that you described. In real simple terms, if you can eliminate those mistakes, then you'll score higher; if you continue to make them with the same general frequency, then you'll likely score at the same general

If you've been scoring at the same general level as you were 1.5 months ago, then it's likely that you've gotten 'stuck' at this particular scoring level. Beyond that particular point, raising your score 80-100 points in a month might be too challenging to be considered realistic. When you combine all of these factors though, you will almost certainly need to make some big adjustments to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections - and that work would likely require at least

Since it sounds like you're just beginning your studies, then it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). If you want to do a little studying first, so that you can familiarize yourself with the basic content and question types, then that's okay

This 720/Q49 is an outstanding score and a considerable improvement over your prior performance. (it's right around the 80th percentile overall). It certainly sounds like you analyzed your prior effort and made the necessary adjustment to pick up those missing points. Now you just have to make sure that you nail your applications.

1) Are you applying to any other Schools besides SSE?

Hi All,

I have started my preparation for GMAT,planning to give 1st attempt in July 2017. If I put in everyday 3 hours on a weekday (i am a working professional) and 10hours on weekends each day excluding coaching classes(3hrs). Is that enough to get a score of 760?

The 99%le score in GMAT would require following things in action:

#1 - Figure out the weak areas.
#2 - Prepare your own strategy

To start, it's unclear what your ACTUAL goal score is: is it 600 (the minimum cited by the 2 Schools that you're interested in), 670 (which you thought you could potentially earn) or 700 (in the title of your post)? Without a definitive goal, we won't know when you've 'succeeded.'

Beyond that point, before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying:
