Hi,
I need some guidance and help ASAP!

My Target Score is 730+ and I am targeting B schools like INSEAD, ISB, IIM A PGPEX and IIM C PGPEX( 1yr courses to be precise) I have booked my exam date for August 1.I intend to join this coming batch of Jan 2017 for ISB and likes or Sep 2017 for INSEAD and likes.

I gave my final GMAT prep Test 2 Exam Pack 2- score 610- Q34 V40 . ( fresh test not a retake. Including AWA and IR and the breaks)I am disheartened. I thought this would be my penultimate CAT before the real one on August 1st. I was looking for a score of 730. Now how do I get a 130 points jump !

In quants I am making very stupid mistakes . In verbal RC- 67 % accuracy -CR and SC are good.
So I postponed my Exam date from August 1 st to 31st .I am messing up Number properties big time now, earlier it was my strength. .

I have exhausted all materials, OGs, including REVIEWS.

Also given the current work pressure I will be unable to keep up a fixed routine and I couldn't make it to 1st August test date (as scheduled earlier) with such Low Quant scores.

Now a Little Background!

I am a 33 year old Male with 8 years of work ex (Management Consultant) with an MBA ( from a not so high ranked Indian B school).I started my preparation in Jan 2016 and chose Crack Verbal -Verbal Online course . I have a hectic work schedule and have to travel a lot but still I managed to put at least 2hrs a day and 8hrs on week ends (provided I am not travelling) . My practice tests pan out as follows

Test No. Exam Pack Date of Exam Score
Test 1 GMAT Prep Exam Pack 1 - Test 1- Diagnostic Test Dec-15 390 (Q16 V27)
Test 2 GMAT Prep Exam Pack 1 Test 2- Prepped for 2 Months with CV On Demand Course Mar 2106 480 (Q33 V23)
Test 3 GMAT Prep Exam Pack 1 Test 1 Retake- Prepped again for a Month- Apr-16 590 (Q48 V24)
Test 4 GMAT Prep Exam Pack 1 Test 2 Retake- Prepped again for a Month- Jun-16 700 (QV50 V35)
Test 5 GMAT Prep Exam Pack 2 Test 1 - Jun 2016- 550 (Q4 V23)
Test 6 MCAT 1- Test 1- Brushed up on Verbal and practiced QUants from GMAT CLub Test-) 19/06/2016 660 ( Q47 V33
Test 7 MCAT 2- Test 2- Brushed up on Verbal and practiced QUants from GMAT CLub Test- 26/06/2016 660 ( Q46 V34)
Test 8 MCAT 3- Test 3 - Brushed up on Verbal and practiced QUants from GMAT CLub Test 03/07/2016 680 (Q45 V37)
Test 9 MCAT 4- Test 6 - Brushed up on Verbal and practiced QUants from GMAT CLub Test 10/07/2016 710(Q49 V38)
Test 10 MCAT 5- Test 6 - Brushed up on Verbal and practiced QUants from GMAT CLub Test 17/07/2016 682 (Q46 V37)
Test 11 GMAT Prep Exam Pack 2- Test 2 - 24/07/2016 610 ( Q34 V40 )


All my tests have been during the same time slot during which I intend to give my real GMAT Test. All the tests were including AWA and IR and with 7 minute breaks.

I think I burned through my Practice tests way too quickly. In my anxiety to get over the GMAT I made a stupid mistake I think. Now how do I go about. I can devote 4hrs a day ( Quants + Verbal) on weekdays and 10hrs a day on Weekends.

The only deviation was during Quants I tend to pause to check on properties and formulae. Only time I didn't pause or look at any formulae was in Test 1, Test 2 and Test 11, .


Please help!
