Hey guys

Am feeling really nervous I just spent 10 days 4-5 hours each doing the egmat sentence correction module and I thought I have gained good enough mastery of topics however when I started practicing in scholaranium medium and hard as egmat suggests my accuracy has gone to the dogs , I am panicking as I have just 50 days left to writing my test and make it to the round of applications in time

Should I move on to the other parts of the prep cr. Rc and quant or redo all the SC topics , any help and inputs would be of great help as I have started to feel maybe I won’t be able to get my dream score ,

I really don’t know what I did wrong yes maybe I didn’t analyse my mistakes too well and kept repeating to do small sentence correction quizzes in sets of 10 multiple times Thinking my accuracy might improve , please anyone just tel me what to do as my plan forward for the next 50 days

Hi Nitishnautiyal ..
It's been only 10 days and please do not hurry. Take things lightly because building concepts and polishing fundamentals take time if you are a non native speaker. Now, do not move to CR and RC and leave SC now. SC is the most straight forward section which focus on grammar and meaning. I hope you are learning the EGMAT course in an efficient way. I see that you already posted the same on their forum and suggest you to write on their chat/helpline. You will get the personal reply from them.
Another mistake which you know you are doing is not analyzing. So, if you keep on making this mistake repeatedly, nobody can enforce the right way. You need to make a change in your strategy.

Hi Nitishnautiyal,

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, 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) What study materials have you used so far?
3) 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:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When is your exact Test Date?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

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

Hi Nitishnautiyal,

I agree that since you have been studying for only 10 days, you can’t expect to be perfect on SC. Since you seem to be struggling with some aspects of Sentence Correction, would you like general advice on how to improve in that topic?

Hi Nitish, have you tried doing official SC questions (from Official guide and on this forum) and what is your accuracy level in those questions?

So guys now I have 44 days left to write my test I have started with cr today ,

With the egmat course so far I have 50-60% accuracy on medium level questions and 40% accuracy on hard level questions , my accuracy on the official guide is really high but I haven’t done that timed ,

Also in egmat verbal scholarium as soon as I do the reattempt of the quiz I score low in I score really high like 80-90 percent it’s just that I am screwing up the meaning and always choose the incorrect choice knowing that I am choosing the incorrect choice therefore when I do the reattempt I score well (without having looked at answers ) I have solved og and egmat scholarium somehwrre like 130 in scholarium and most of og for SC .


I am just a bit scared if I have enough time to master the remaining course module quant cr and rc included and do mocks .

I gave SC somehwre around 17 days and that’s too much , I have been deligently studying and did everything egmat wants you to do with revision cementing etc maybe I am just dumb but I am moving on to CR and hope for the best with genuine efforts , in the end if I don’t score well then am just dumb I guess . So far I haven’t been an idiot in my undergrad etc and have constructed two unconventional businesses from scratch in India which are doing well

This whole test prep is making me doubt myself and making me low in confidence and occasional Panick attacks as well .

Can’t control everything i guess let’s see how it goes , it’s just that indian pool of students is soo freaking tough everyone has like a 720+ and is an engineer etc with solid gpa , I on the other hand have good enough academics but a lot more on entrepreneurship to showcase which are legit strong money making businesses and my reason to do an mba is to gain more clarity on strategising it’s expansions

Hi Nitishnautiyal,

While I have no doubt that you've worked through lots of practice questions, it's not clear HOW you're working through them (re: the Tactics that you're using, how you're reviewing questions that you got wrong, etc.). The type of Score that you're after is above the 90th percentile (so clearly most people - regardless of their ethnicity - either CAN'T or WON'T do what it takes to earn that type of Score). To properly fix the issues that you're looking to fix, we have to define a number of different aspects of your studies (and plans) - and I'll be happy to help you with this next phase of your studies, but you will first need to answer the questions that I asked in my prior post.

Hi Nitishnautiyal,

Since you have put in some study time already, then you really MUST take a FULL-LENGTH CAT (including the Essay and IR sections) sometime soon (perhaps this weekend). That initial diagnostic CAT is important - it helps to define your strengths and weaknesses and gives you a basis for comparison as you continue to study. Most Test Takers are not happy with that first CAT result, but that's not a big deal - you still have plenty of time to learn the proper Tactics and improve. There are likely issues with how you currently handle the Verbal section that will only become clear once we see how you perform under realistic, timed conditions. Once you have your first CAT Score, you should post back here; we can then discuss the results and how best to proceed.
