BOOKMARKED
I recently took GMAT and scored 720 (Q50,V37). I want to increase my score to 750+. As I am applying only in Europe, I can afford one month more for my GMAT preparation.

I have attached my enhanced score report for your review.

My verbal ESR is as below:

My quant ESR is as below:

Quant_1.PNG [ 68.77 KiB | Viewed 451 times ]
Attachment:
Quant_2.PNG
Quant_2.PNG [ 62.41 KiB | Viewed 448 times ]


Here are some of my observation, and I need suggestion for the same:
1. I rushed in the last part for both Quant and Verbal. In quant, I guessed around 2-3 questions in the last set, and the same for Verbal, where I guessed even more. So, I am looking for an effective time management strategy to improve upon. I think time management alone can help me with 10/20 points increment.
2. Quant: With Q51, I can expect a 20 points increment, and that's 740, assuming my verbal score remains same. Is there anything apart from time management I need to work on for my quant, as evident from my ESR?
2. I am applying in INSEAD-Jan 18 intake and IMD, so I cannot afford more than one month. So, is it feasible to expect an increase of 40/50 points in the next one month (Specially from 720 level, because I understand that its much more easier to increase score from 650 to 720, than from 720 to 760) Moreover, at present I am working on some applications too, so my time commitment for GMAT is very limited.
4. The most difficult part is that my verbal percentile is pretty same across all sections. Had it been a loop sided result, I could easily think of an increment of 20/30 points by working on that single section. So, I do not think its easy to increase verbal percentile from mid 70's to mid 90's in one month. Is there a viable strategy/plan to achieve the "most difficult part" ?

Thank you for you help and valuable suggestions.

What is the "first" "second" "third" and "last" sections? What do they correspond to?

They corresponds to the set of questions within a particular section. For instance in verbal sections - first 10 questions = "first", second 10 questions = "second"... and so on.

Hi

As you rightly suggested, the improvement of 40-50 points will only come from a sound strategy now.

Thats why we at Strategy4GMAT focus on this aspect of the test. To help you with time management, you may refer to our "better after 5" rule at the link given below:
