Hi
I recently gave my GMAT and did not score too well in it. Especially in the Verbal Section. I practiced for two months. Used THE economist for my quant prep felt the verbal section was too dry for me and used EGMAT for verbal prep. I just got my ESR and was hoping to get some feedback from people who were able to overcome the setback and how they prepped and aced the GMAT.

Warm regards

Hi kartikm2496,

Here is the ESR analysis:

Your test started with low difficulty level questions and you did not do well. In the first set itself you got only 50% accuracy. You would not have penalised much if these were high difficulty level questions.

Marking lower difficulty level questions is much more severe than doing so with higher difficulty ones.

Well you did get 100% accuracy in the second set and for this little success algorithm gave you another chance to raise your bar. But in last two sets you could not beat the toughness of questions and had the lower accuracy.

So overall medium difficulty level questions presented to you and because of low accuracy on SUCH questions you got V25.

Here are the number of questions you got right in each set. (excluded the experimental questions, as they have no impact on your score) :

Thank you for the thorough analysis of the above. What would you recommend be my plan of action. My initial aim was to score 700 but seeing this i have to be realistic. I want to aim for 670-680. I had Q48 V25 and score of 610. Seeing my ability in the above sections what would you recommend i do.
Warm regards

Hi kartikm2496,

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:

1) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
4) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

Since there's some potential for you to pick up some points in BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections, I'd also like to see your FULL ESR. You can feel free to PM or email it to me.

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

Hi kartikm2496

I believe that lower score is the result of bad planning, not studying regularly, not revising the learnings and not taking care of mental health.
Discipline and confidence are key to success. I would like you to read my following post. If you still have any query, please post. Happy to help :)

Were your GMATPrep scores different?

Generally, you shouldn't take a decision on whether you need to be "realistic" on the basis of your first GMAT/ESR. The ESR provides a rough snapshot of your performance on test day. As such, the ESR may or may not indicate with precision your "ability in the above sections".
