Hi,

I have completed GMAT prep exams.

Scores:
GMAT PREP 1 : Q 50(Incorrect : 8) V 40 (Incorrect : 10)- 740
GMAT PREP 2: Q 50 (Incorrect : 6) V 31 (Incorrect : 10) - 690

Can someone please explain the drastic drop in the score with the same accuracy levels.
One observation from my side in verbal part is the number of incorrect questions (in first 10) varies drastically - in exam 1 - Incorrect - 3 in exam 2 incorrect 6 (RC came up as 2 question and all three were wrong2,3,4)

My exam is in 15 days my target score is 730 - 740.
Can anyone suggest a proper way to analyze these exams and suggest last 10 days preparation tips.

Hey prasanths89
As you've correctly observed, the change in score has to do with which questions you got wrong - and the first 10 do have a large effect. One question - did you feel you were running out of time at the end of the test? If so, it makes sense to maybe decide ahead of time to skip a question or two, and have a realistic number of questions you are going for. Then, divide the test into 15 minute segments and have a target number of question to get in that segment. Since the first 10, you can give yourself a bit more time to solve them, but what's important is you've budgeted that time from the start and are solving quicker later on.
What's important now is you analyze your tests extensively. Go over them, collect all of the wrong questions. Ask yourself for each one - why did I get this wrong? Look for patterns, and think how you can avoid repeating these going forward.
For more, here is a blog post on how to make the most of mock tests I think you may find interesting

Hi DAVEexamPAL

thanks for suggestion. The main problem was in RC. I got a RC at question 2 and it was very difficult. I wasted 8 mins and answered all 3 wrong. What do you suggest I do if similar situation arises in real exam.

Thanks.
