I am kinda in the same situation. Gave my GMAT today, scoring 31 in Verbal. I know most of the experts on the forum would suggest the study plan created by bb (forum/study-plan-for-verbal-gmat-98342. html) But, here is the troubling part.
I have done most of the things suggested in the plan. Honestly, I have. I am non-native speaker but a fluent speaker and fairly active reader. The strategies suggested for CR and SC, I have been following them since I started preparing. For the practice part, I practiced Official Guide 13
, Verbal OG
2, GMATPrep, Manhattan SC. My score never fell below 75% accuracy in any section of Verbal content I practiced, rather for most of the part, accuracy averaged around 82-83%, a couple of times even touching 90+% accuracy. AND I have done all the questions in OG 13
, Verbal OG
, GMATPrep properly timed - at max 2 mins per question. I understand its not a Great accuracy, but it no way correlates with a score 31 (59%ile). I am utterly confused. I even gave three MGMATs. Never in any exam have I scored above 34 in Verbal. I just cant understand why I cant replicate the verbal performance while practicing, in an exam.
If it helps in analyzing, I have never had problems in Quant, be it in practice OR Exam.
Some help/suggestions would really help. I don't want to spend big amount on taking coaching.
Please ignore the GMAT kind of grammatical errors in this message (Clearly, I have got no result from correcting sentences in my day to day convo/read, so I did not want to make effort for the same while writing this message)
