Hi, I have just finished my first GMAT and got 620 score with Q48 V28.
I studied using official guide book and have been studying for about 1~2 months.
I would like to know how I could improve my score.
Thanks.

Hi seminajk,

While the ESR doesn't provide a lot of information, there are usually a few data points that we can use to define what went wrong (and what you should work on to score higher). I'll be happy to analyze your ESR, but I'll need to see the FULL ESR though. If you would rather not post it publicly, then you can feel free to PM it directly to me.

Beyond the data in your ESR, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) What type of study routine have you followed? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) Have you used any other study materials besides the OG?
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 retake the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi seminajk,

From your ESR it is clear that you have a lot of scope of improvement in SC and RC sections of Verbal. Another thing that you must do is work on your Time Management. I am sharing a few articles below that will help you plan for your next attempt better.

Hope these help! Please feel free to write to us at support@e-gmat.com if you need any further help in planning your re-take.

Regards,

There is so much you could do. Can you elaborate on how you have been studying?

I am totally amazed by your timing and accuracy rate AND the score you have finally got.

I request EMPOWERgmatRichC to comment on the accuracy rate and final score. I am aware that score depends upon the difficulty level NOT the accuracy rates. I am also aware that one must not get 500/600 level questions wrong, i.e. he penalty is more severe if one gets easy questions wrong. But by correlating various charts provided in the attached ESR I am stunned with the final Verbal score.

Some inputs from the experts will be invaluable.

Hi seminajk,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. First off, great work on quant. A Q48 is an impressive score. That being said, before providing specific advice regarding your verbal score, I’d like to learn more about your situation with the GMAT.
