Hi,

Im able to solve most of 600-700questions with 70-80% accuracy in QA. But with 700+ questions(30-40% accuracy), I'm unable to apply my knowledge to those questions as after looking into the solution I realize that even though I knew the concept and everything I was unable to use it on paper. How can I overcome this? For the record, I have solved many problems but still I can't apply under time limit. Without time limit my accuracy varies slightly to 50-60% accuracy.
With Verbal, I just started out. My accuracy is 70-80% in sub 600 level questions and 50-60% accuracy with 600-700 questions. Since there is so much room for me to grow. I could really use some strategies.

I haven't taken any mock test as I'm worried about getting a very poor score. How much am I expected to score at this level?

Thanks in advance if you could help me out.

Hi,

Although I am no expert but as per me one should give as many mocks as possible because when one finds ones weaknesses only then can one actually improve.

You can keep on solving practice questions of any difficulty but the test is a mix of all difficulty questions,when you will give the test you will find out what are the topic on which you performed as expected and which are the ones that need more practice.

Also mocks will give you and insight of how you might perform with the actual test format.

So try to give a mock and find the areas where you can improve, then spend some time practicing and give another mock and so on..

All the Best!
