Hello sanjitscorps18

I will share the scoreboard on the last day, initially, I did it on daily basis during the competition but a few participants knowing they cannot win leave the competition early and on the last day we were remaining only with the winners :D . So to just avoid the situation I stop doing it on a daily basis.

JFYI: pintukr is topping the table after the conclusion of first day.

Thanks a lot for this sprint.. Really appreciate the effort and time you put in for this Sajjad1994
Though I was lost on the last day, the table has definitely got my confidence up.
Also this has brought about some mistakes I am making and hence helped in taking the corrective actions.

Once again thank you.

Was waiting for a notification of a mention or something to let me know that the result it here, finally checked after 2 hours of waiting :lol:
Jokes aside, thank you Sajjad1994 for this initiative. It has been a tremendous ride and tackling RCs and having to explain our thought process behind why an answer is correct and also why other options are incorrect really made me see RCs and also Verbal from a different mindset, a more broadening experience
Honestly, I have been really worried about RCs and lacking confidence in them all this time but this contest really helped me have some confidence back that I can do them, just need to be faster and more thoughtful
Also, analyzing options as to why they are incorrect made me realize about a lot of wording issues wrong answer choices have, which will definitely help me as well

All in all, thank you so very much and hope for more such contests in the near future

Re: GMAT Club Reading Comprehension Sprint 2022 [#permalink]
Thank you for such a wonderful contest Sajjad1994 and all your efforts!
Personally, learnt a few lessons:
1. Understanding the question - makes big a difference. This is bit different than CR where we know most of the types of questions.
2. Main point questions - Look for broader scope.
3. Breaking the answer choices - Check the correctness of all the parts.

Hope to see more such contents in future!
