I cancelled my past attempt . I scheduled my next take on 27th . I could not get ESR till yesterday .Since I have few days left , I want to make sure that I work on relevant weaknesses . I actually could not understand any of the passages completely on the test day because of nervousness .
My analysis :
1. My SC and RC ability represent my true ability , My CR ability does not represent my true ability .
2. I spent a bit more time in the first quarter than needed . Thus has to be reduced .
3. I have to improve my RC ability . (Got 2 RC's in 3rd quarter and you can see the result ).
4. My average time for correct answers for SC is 1:30 minutes , for CR is 2:30 minutes , and for RC is 2:00 minutes . So , I require 72 minutes to complete the exam . Now , should I guess ? If so , should I guess instantly when I encounter one of the questions from my weak areas mentioned below ? Precisely , how should I get that extra 7 minutes .
5.Nervousness damaged my first quarter . I have difficulty comprehending when I am nervous.
6..My weak areas
a. In CR , questions including Percentages , Proportions
b. In RC, questions including Inference .egmat

Hi Talayva,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) Have you taken the Official GMAT just the one time or have you taken it more than once? How did you score on each attempt (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each?)?

Goals:
5) What is your goal score?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Since you have the ESR for this last attempt, I'll be happy to analyze it for you. I'll need to see the FULL ESR though. You can feel free to PM or email it to me.

Rich

Hi Talayva,

I am sorry to hear that your scores in the actual test were not what you had desired. I have gone through your ESR and the analysis you’ve presented, and it is more or less on point. With all the points that you have shared, I have one question for you –
1. Did you follow the e-GMAT process diligently during the test and during practice?
Please share your response along with any other concern that you may have faced during the test at support@e-gmat.com. Please make sure that you write to us using the registered email-id.

Way Forward

Since you are already an e-GMAT student and have solved questions in Scholaranium, you must follow the below mentioned steps:
1. Click on the Skill Data section
2. Check the topics in which you are weak
3. Go back to the concept and application files of these topics and revise them thoroughly making sure you understand the application process well
4. Take quizzes on those topics
This entire process is explained in detail here. Sharing an example of a student who used the above-mentioned strategy to improve her score.

Hi Talayva,

I see that you included part of your ESR, but I don’t see your overall score or your quant score from your official exam. Could you please provide your exact score breakdown? Also, could you provide the score breakdowns from your previous practice exams?

The possible issue I see is that you may need more than just nine days to turn around your GMAT score. If that is the case, are you able to take the GMAT at a later date?

Also, you may find it helpful to read my article about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

Please reach out with any further questions.

Good luck!

ScottTargetTestPrep ,
EMPOWERgmatRichC

My desired Score: 760. What should be my verbal score to get 760 if my Quant score is 51
I took a GMAT Prep Mock 6 today .
Score 740
Quant 51 : 0 Incorrect
Verbal :38 : 10 Incorrect
Question Numbers :10 , 11 , 14 ,17 , 19 , 25 , 26 , 32, 34 , 36

6 SC Incorrect (1 Lack of Time , 2 Confused between 2 Options , 3 Incorrect )
1 CR Incorrect ( Randomly Marked , Time Insufficient )
3 RC Wrong ( 1 Question No time, 2 Inference Questions wrong )

Note :
1. I got 2 CR questions , answers of which I knew earlier.
2. I got one RC question which I think I answered earlier , but didn't know answers so was more like a fresh passage . Had to read entire passage and do the same search for answers in the passage .

3.I lost approximately 7 seconds on each question because the questions were taking time to load. I have exhausted aa the Mocks . So , I cannot estimate my score anymore .

I cannot cancel my test now since I have already crossed the 7 day limit .
What can I do in these few days .
I am planning to solve GMAT PREP RC's ,SC's and CR's and Question Pack (in sets of 36 each ) . What else should I do ?
