GMAT 2nd Attempt: I scored a 690 on 2/8/2020 after scoring a 640 on 11/23/2019. I have another take (the last attempt) scheduled in 9 days.

Current State of Mind: I am quite content with a 690. However to be 100% frank, part of me wanted to cross into the 700s and since I already have a retake scheduled, I have been reviewing concepts and errors I made over the last few months.

Test Experience: On Quant, I thought I could have scored a Q50 as I definitely missed 2-3 of the last 5 questions. I went though those last 4-5 questions in about 7 minutes. On Verbal, I could have managed time better as well. If I can master the timing, I think I should be able to close in on a V40.

Plan for the next 9 days: Other than working on the time management skill, reviewing few topics I know I'm not the greatest at such as Perm and Comp and Overlapping Sets, and reviewing previously made errors, is there anything else the experts think I should work on? I have 9 days and I plan to do the aforementioned and also take the last 2 Manhattan CAT remaining.

ChiTexan2015 - 690 is a great score!! Good improvement over the last attempt. Reach out to e-GMAT team to help define your improvement plan. We have helped many folks improve from 680s to 740+ scores. The key here is to answer the following questions:

1. Where will the improvement come from? (Which sub-sections?)
2. What to study (concepts, application, practice) in these subsections and how much time to devote there?
3. How to track your improvement (metrics, composition of quizzes etc.)?
4. How to maintain performance in the other sub-sections?

Reach out to the support team asking for Shaarang/Ashutosh.

Here are some examples of people who have achieved the same:

Hi ChiTexan2015,

690 is a great safety net, so you should be able to go into your next GMAT with a calm head. Regarding what to do in the next 9 days, in addition to taking a few more practice exams, to improve your quant and verbal skills, you may find it helpful to engage in focused practice of each individual quant and verbal topic. For example, let’s say that you want to practice Number Properties. You can do so by answering 50 or more questions just from Number Properties: LCM, GCF, units digit patterns, divisibility, remainders, etc. As you do such practice, do a thorough analysis of each question that you don't get right. If you got a remainder question wrong, ask yourself why. Did you make a careless mistake? Did you not properly apply the remainder formula? Was there a concept you did not understand in the question? Number Properties is just one example; follow this process for all quant and verbal topics.

Also, try to keep busy with activities other than GMAT prep: go out to dinner, go to the movies, binge-watch Netflix, go for a run … Do whatever you have to so you don’t spend the days leading up to your exam worrying about how things will go.

Lastly, you may find it helpful to read this article with more advice on how to treat the final week leading up to your exam as well as some test day tips.

Let us know how things go. Good luck!!
