Hi All,

I am facing a new difficulty with my GMAT verbal score. For some reason, more practice papers I solve (Princeton Review), more my score plummets and this is starting to overwhelm me. It went from 41 on the verbal section to 22. I do understand that I am still being vague but I fail to see besides practicing what I can do to improve it.

I am eager to get some solution to get out of this situation.

Thank you!

Although I am not the expert.... but to get a good indication of your current level of V or Q..... It is advisable to take 1 free mock from GMAC ... identify the week areas and work on them. MGMAT/Veritas mocks ( although harder than GMAT and priced at $49) have good analytics to point out the weak areas.

Hi Neeta, I am assuming you've not given any official tests as yet. They might give you a better idea of your actual current position.

Hi neetakarnik,

I can understand your concern. Do you review your tests and accordingly prepare before the next one? Reviewing your tests is extremely important. The insights you get from each test is essential for you to improve and make the most of every test that you solve. Scholaranium was designed keeping this in mind. I would recommend that you take a few Verbal Ability Quizzes in Scholaranium that is available in e-GMAT Free Trial. Go to Skill Data section to get a topic level insight on your performance and way forward. Feel free to write to us at support@e-gmat.com for any further queries.

Regards,
Aditee

Is it possible that you're burned out from taking too many practice tests (or from doing too much of the same type of studying in a short period)? Burnout sometimes shows up as a sudden, massive score drop. You can't 'study your way out of it,' but you can overcome it to a certain extent. Check this out: https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/blog ... t-burnout/

Hi neetakarnik,

It has been a few weeks since we last heard from you. Are you still struggling with GMAT verbal? Are you still looking for advice on how to move forward?
