I gave my 1st GMAT exam in June 2017 and scored 620 ( Q50, V24, IR8, AWA 4.5).

Started with AWA followed by IR, Quants and Verbal.
Very much disappointed by the verbal score.
Everything was going smoothly during the exam. I was happy until the final score popped up.
I Couldn't believe verbal was this much low. I was scoring in range of 28-30 during mocks and was confident about scoring more than 30 in GMAT.

After a break of 2 months I started preparation with e-gmat verbal course. I have finished SC and currently preparing for CR. But the confidence is just not building up for a good verbal score.
I thought of verbal online score as an option, have hears alott about that from my friends, but cannot decide weather to go for it or not ?

Even though i can wait till Feb-17 end for giving the exam, I am planning to give next GMAT by December-17 end.

Any suggestions or guidance will be highly appreciated.

Practice more and more! The only key to improve verbal scores is "learn the basics and practice".
The below pointers will surely help you (they helped me though):

1. Make sure to take a note of the mistakes you commit, learn from them.
2. Identify your weak areas.
3. Go through the basics once again for those weak areas.
4. Practice at least 50-100 different questions.

You'll definitely make a progress after this much practice. All the best!

Thanks,

Hi Rahul2511,

To start, you would likely find it beneficial to begin your next Official GMAT with the Quant and Verbal sections - so that you can tackle those parts of the Exam when you have the most energy. By starting this last Test with the Essay and IR sections, you might have been a bit too tired to perform at your best in the Verbal section (at the end of the Exam).

With a V24, you would have lost significant points in all 3 major Verbal categories (SC, RC and CR), so you have the potential to pick up serious points in any/all of those areas. 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 and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long has it been since you restarted your studies?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

Goals:
4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

You should order the ESR to know more about your weaknesses. Also, why did you start with AWA followed by IR, Quants and Verbal. You would have been exhausted by the time you reached the Verbal, which is your weakest link.
