I started with a cold mock 440 Q32 V19
then Did 2 weeks of only quant and then 500 Q39 V21

then i did 5 weeks of mainly verbal and quant in depth (such as geometry and so on)
Then I took a mock today and scores 490 Q36 V21

I maninly used Empower gmat, Manhattam for CR and OG for practice.
I felt confident when I was doing questions on The gmat club ...... but i don't get why I'm so terrible .......

I thinking about giving up or get some private turoring...
Any suggestion?

Hi mamu10.

A 50 point increase is a good start. At the same time, your progress could be faster than it has been.

I could give you some ideas on how to increase your score faster, but first, I'm wondering what practice tests you have used each time, as the practice tests could be a factor in the results you have gotten so far.

Hello mamu10

Many test aspirants are unhappy with their initial practice test scores. You shouldn’t think of giving up. What we have observed is that this is due to either lack of a detailed study plan or some unreliable resources. The GMAT is not that easy as we assume. Raising score from 490 to 700+ is realistic, but it needs consistency and dedication.

In your case, we observe that you need to practice the basic concept and solve as many as questions you can. Also, until you can track your performance, you won’t get enough confidence to beat the GMAT. We will first recommend you to take our free diagnostic test,

Apart from this, here is all that you need and what we will offer you:

1. A detailed study plan (We provide a study guide to all our students based on diagnostic test)
2. Reliable resources(Check out our free trial pack and free video lessons on our site:
3. Unique, alternative approaches to solve quant questions in a short period, saving you time and increase accuracy and hence score.
4. Up-To-Date questions that meet GMAT exam trends. You don’t need to waste your time on outdated questions here and there.

Build your math basics with our "Math Review" (5-hour lesson). These videos are for reviewing basic math, including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and word problems. At your level, you need to go over these videos twice. We are sure that you can strengthen your basic math skills. However, we suggest you refer to these videos any time you need to refresh and master the basics. You may take an online course where you may ask as many questions you have, or you may consider private tutoring as well.

Regular tests will reflect the positive change in the score, and hence, your confidence will boost up. Also, remember that to score 700+ in GMAT, one needs this possible combination: V37/Q50, V39/Q49, V43/Q45

Please let us know if you have further questions.

You can reach us at

Success is within your reach.

Good luck!
