Hi, i have scheduled my GMAT exam for last week of August 2018 (27th August) and I work full time. My mock score was 580.

I started my prep start of May and studied 2 hours/weekday and about 4 hours/weekend where i studied only Quant course (from Magoosh)

I lost 2 weeks of prep due to ill-health in June.

Anyway, I have completed Quant course with about 120 Questions from Magoosh.

For Verbal, I have completed CR (Power Score CR bible) with a good grip and completed OG 50 Questions (using GMAT CLUB tools, timer and error log) with only 4-5 incorrect. I just finished SC (MGMAT Verbal foundations and SC guide) and will complete all OG questions for it by 28th August. 29th July all pending CR OG questions and review.

My last month plan is:

- 30th July to 5th August- Revise Quant and complete all OG questions from OG GMAT Review and OG Quant Review and review mistakes- 1 week.
- 6th August to 12th August- RC - course plus OG questions and review mistakes.
-12th August- Mock exam GMAT prep exam pack 1 & review mistakes.
-13th to 17th review errors/weaknesses.
-18th August- EXam prep 2.
- 19th August to 22nd- go over errors and weaknesses.
- 23rd Exam pack 3 and go over weakenesses and errors.
Exam on 27th!

I know its a race against time! however any tips you guys give may help me!

My undergrad is Bachelors in Robotics Engineering from the Top university of my country- however CGPA is 3.1

My target school is Oxford MBA and for that I need a GMAT score of at least 690 (their average) to cover for my low CGPA.

I will be applying for Round two whose deadline is 2nd November 2018 (for intake of sep'19).

Hi anum23,

From your post, it sounds like you've taken just one practice CAT (and scored 580). How long ago did you take that CAT? What were your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores?

If it's been at least a couple of weeks since you took that CAT, then you should plan to take a new, FULL-LENGTH CAT sometime soon (perhaps this weekend). Make sure to take it in a realistic fashion (take the FULL CAT - with the Essay and IR sections, take it away from your home, at the same time of day as when you'll take the Official GMAT, etc.); once you have that score, you should report back here and we can discuss how best to proceed.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

*This post is just out of curiosity !*

Hello BB,
I have been following posts on GmatClub for quiet sometime now.
How do you guys know when a user has posted the same post/topic more than once ?
Given the fact, that the same user can post multiple times in a day(posting different topics every time) and that the total number of posts on the forum can go about 200+ per day !
