I have read in forms previously that RC in GMAT verbal is weighted more than SC and CR. Is this claim true?

I have been struggling with time in Verbal section as i am spending too much time on RC. Because of this I have to rush on CR and SC questions. By doing this my accuracy is going down. Normally, when I take my time on a SC or CR question, my accuracy is pretty high (on average I only get <3 questions wrong for SC or CR). Due to the lack of time, this number is increasing.

So, If I am struggling with time, is it a good Idea to randomly guess the last passage and make time for the remaining SC and CR questions? Will this hurt more than guessing through few last CR and SC questions?

Thank You.

Thank You.

point 1: ur accuracy should be consistent throughout the test. hence i strongly suggest you to follow this strategy www.youtube.com/watch?v=doyvboIy3JU
point 2: Work on RC. try Gin's technique. Also try to identify which type of questions(main idea, inference etc) trouble you. Do not guess the entire passage(all questions in a passage). Skip the type (main idea, or inference) which is most challenging to u. Hence know your weakness and use it as a strength on the GMAT (by skipping and saving time on that question)
Same can be applied in Quant too. If probability is challenging, skip and save those valuable 2 min. u ve to answer only 36 questions in tat case

Thank You dvinoth86 for your advice. I read Gin's RC doc. I have been following similar process mentioned in Gin's RC doc, but the problem is I am not able to comprehend the tougher passages especially the long ones well. So even though I take notes, and spend time understanding the passage, I am having to go back to the passage over and over again to answer. This is taking too much time and therefore I am panicking and picking the wrong answers. This way I am wasting time (~10 mins) and still getting over 50% wrong.

Thank you,
