Hi there,

Timing in the RC can be challenging. Perhaps you can improve your note-taking skills, which will ultimately help you decrease the time you spend on the questions:

Taking notes in the Reading Comprehension section can be very useful.
Since more than 95% of all correct answers for Main Idea and Structure questions come from the first two sentences of the paragraphs, your first step is to read the first two sentences of each paragraph and take notes on each.

Make sure you only paraphrase and do not copy everything word-for-word. The point is is to get a brief summary of what you have read.

Pay attention to any of sentences that have opposition conjunctions like however, but and although.

This should be enough for a general mapping of the text and should help you locate many of the detail-related questions.

Before you get the hang of note-taking, don’t worry about timing. Your timing will improve as you practice. Most people complain about the fact that note-taking takes more time, but in the end, it will actually save you time and make you more precise.

Regards,

Elizabeth

I've attached a table that maps out appropriate timings per problem type. The formatting gets messed up in a post.

How are you preparing? If you are self-studying, I strongly recommend my guide, GMAT Clarity (amazon link). It sounds like you could really use the guidance on self-studying effectively and efficiently with the right prep materials.

Yes timing will be the most important and challenging task. I think there is no need of worry. You will have to create a new updated strategy and time table for this and again start study on the updated time table.

All the best
