SC is normally the one that takes the least time, so you could look at increasing your speed in those questions. As for RC, it is normal for a test taker to spend more than 2 minutes on the first question (because of the time needed to read the passage). Here you could look at using up some of the time saved in SC, and at getting through the "stated idea" questions as fast as possible, as those are generally easier than the questions that ask you to draw inferences.

If you have the time to do so, you should also increase the amount of RC practice you do. Greater comfort with the topics you find challenging and with reading in general is probably the best way to improve your RC timing.

Hi AjiteshArun,

I am aware that a 1st question of RC required more than 2 minutes but 5 to 6 mins are way more that what I feel and I will try to increase the amount of RC practice to increase comfort level.

I am also trying to increase comfort level in SC to save time Thanks !!

This is a great result, keep going!
I have not achieved such a result yet (I don’t even want to talk about it), but I try very hard!

Hi All,

Need help badly, I am not sure whats going wrong But I am doing very bad in Verbal and need help for the same.

After my last mock I was mainly focusing on Verbal as I know that I can score good quant for sure. I gave only verbal section yesterday on GMAT Club test and scored only 21 and I was like what?????

If I observe my study of last few days than I can surely say that my knowledge has really increased after I gave my last mock still my score decreased from 25 to 21.

Not sure whats going wrong hence I am planning to give one on official site today to make sure I get real score. Any advise If I should not give it today and why?

Let me know if you want any report of my last mock.

PS - I am not focusing much on quant right now and just practicing few questions a day as Quant is big + for me and I can prepare that quickly whenever needed.

I'm not sure which test you took, but you should try not to compare scores across providers (if that is what you are doing).

There no need to rush here, but this issue seems to be worrying you, so you might as well take an official practice test soon. Treat the score estimate that you get from that test as the most reliable score estimate you have, and plan accordingly. Don't take a second official practice test immediately after the first, as there is usually some "lag" between learning something and being able to apply it.

Most importantly, continue working on your weaknesses. Don't let anything you see on a practice test keep you from doing the really important things.

Hi AjiteshArun

Earlier I had scored 27 and 25 in Verbal on 800Score.com and yesterday I tried on GMAT CLUB Test where managed to score only 21.

I am on RUSH as I am on leave from office right now as had planned to give GMAT in 1st week of Apr and I am sure if I cancel this leave then not gonna get in near future as slots are already booked by others.

I have not gave any official mock yet hence thinking if should give one.

I assumed that you had time because I thought you'd planned to take the actual exam only after getting close to your target score. However, if you plan to take the test in April, you should take an official practice test as soon as possible.

As for test slots, it's usually not that tough to find slots in April. Are you sure they're all booked?

Yup that was the initial plan but it didn't worked and things got changed as got leaves from office so.....

To my near location only one date is available in 1st week of Apr ie on 2nd of April, which is in less than 2 weeks.

I found few week points of mine in SC ie, Subject verb, Pronoun, modifiers, and Comparison(I know its too much ). Hence planned to revise that today and might give one official practice test on tomorrow or day after tomorrow. I will share score here after that.
