Hello !

I gave GMAT thrice - 600 (V26 Q47) , 600 (V31 Q 42) and day before 660 (V31 Q49) - in one year span. Before my last attempt , I bought exam pack 1 and gave exam 3 on 8th July 2018, scoring 700 (V34 Q50 IR7) and gave exam 4 on 15th July 2018, scoring 730 (V40 Q49 IR8). Both these tests were given in exact GMAT like conditions. I was confident of scoring 700+ in official test, but as mentioned I ended up with V31, which brought my score to 660. I have given GMAT club quant tests and scored in the range of Q 47 to Q 50, so I am not worried for the Quant part. But I need your friendly advise on why my Mock score and actual score has a huge difference in Verbal? Or shall I book one more attempt ASAP and give Mock 5 and 6 prior to that?
In my last Mock following was my Verbal 40 break up (SC 11/14 CR 7/9 RC 12/13)

Need some expert comments and guidance to reach V40

PS: I have completed E-GMAT verbal online course as well. But that was before my 2nd attempt (saw a 5 point increase in Verbal in 2nd attempt)
I request if ycould review my ESR and suggest plan of action.

Hi DinkarDK,

I am sorry to hear that your actual GMAT result was not in line with your expectations. To understand the reason for this drop in performance I would want to know the following from you:
1. Was there anything during the test that may have resulted in poor performance during the test?
2. You mentioned that you used e-GMAT course for your second attempt and saw a 5 points increase in your Verbal score, how did you prepare Verbal for the third attempt?

ESR Observations and Recommendations

1. Poor Accuracy in the first and the last block brought the score down.
2. You needed more time to get the questions correct as seen in the second and third blocks. When you spent lesser time, your accuracy reduced as seen in first and fourth blocks.
3. Your ability in CR is low and in SC and RC it is decent but there is scope of improvement across the three sections
4. You must use GMAT Planner to decide the Verbal split required to get to V40. E.g.- SC : 96 percentile , RC : 91 percentile, CR : 54 percentile. This is just an example. You can set your own sectional scores.
Learn how Alok maximized his score despite being weak in one section:
5. You must go through the concept of takt time and the section for retakers in the Your Study Plan module to understand the way forward.
6. You can also watch the GMAT Score booster session to understand how to create a one month study plan as a re-taker.

Regards,
