Hi,

I am well versed with all the concepts of verbal and also able to apply in majority of the questions while practicing but somehow in tests I get questions wrong. Can anyone please advice where I am lacking and what should I do to improve?

Thanks.

Quite too many possible answers to that question, could you be more specific?
I can provide you a link though
If it helps, give a smile on my post and don't forget to bookmark it so that you can access it later faster.

Hi Businessconquerer, thank you for your assistance. So, the problem I am facing is I am done with official mock tests available and scored in the range of 660-720 and I even did a lot of official questions from this site but recently I gave GMAT and too my shock I scored only 570. I do not have any problem in Quant. My overall score went so low only because of verbal. I do not know where did I go wrong. please help.

What was your Quant and Verbal Split?
The percentile counts
Not the sectional score
A well balanced score is the one where the Verbal and quant have equal percentile
I need to know if you repeated any of the official practice tests you gave?
Also which tutoring service did you connect with?
And please tell me everthing about your prep, narrowing down to the most minor detail in verbal. As If I need to help you by saying the score can be increased by X points, it won't be. You need a personalised study plan

I do not remember the percentile but can tell you the score: quant 47 and verbal 25.
No, the range 660-720 is not with repetition.
My prep for verbal was - concepts from MGMAT, official guide and other official questions from gmatclub.

Hi shobhitkh,

I'm sorry to hear that Test Day didn't go as well as planned. When these types of score drops occur, the two likely "causes" involve either something that was unrealistic during practice or something that was surprising (or not accounted for) on Test Day. Before we discuss any of those potential issues though, 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? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
3) What is your overall goal score?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

You might also choose to purchase the Enhanced Score Report. While the ESR doesn’t provide a lot of information, there are usually a few data points that we can use to define what went wrong on Test Day (and what you should work on to score higher). If you purchase the ESR, then I'll be happy to analyze it for you.

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

Hi shobhitkh,

I’m happy to help but would like to learn more about your situation with the GMAT. Once you respond to the questions already asked, I can provide some further advice.
