Hi All,

I have 20 days as my gmat is on 4 sept 2017.

I have already given gmat first time got 600 (Q48,V24)

Now I am consistently stuck at V 27 sometimes less than that V23.
I have gone through both Egmat as well as Economist (90% verbal complete).
I am mostly not facing much difficulty in SC (60% ability rate).

RC (10-35%) AND CR(20-40%) and I dont know how to destroy verbal.

I have done all the gmat question as well as Verbal scholarium.

Quants also stuck at (48-50) ---> scores also varies
Also for verbal I am getting good score at manhattan above v 30
but gmatprep and gmatclub test my score is around v23-v27


Suggest me something that can be done.
OR should I postpone my days.

PLEASE HELP

Hi Anmolgupta824,

I would recommend you to take a GMATPrep Test immediately
to understand exactly where you stand. After that as you have
eGmat for SC scoring around 70-80% should not be such a
problem provided you have completed their SC module diligently.

Everyday, you should spend around 2 hours building up some
concept(eg. Subject Verb Agreement, Modifier etc) and practice
questions afterwards and see if there is improvement. Make
notes in places you are making mistakes in and go over them
several times before the exam.

For CR and RC, do extensive practice and make an error log.
Keep reviewing both your error log and the concept notes which
you make till around 10 days before the exam.

Take a GMATPrep(around 8-9 days before the actual exam date)
and then take a call whether you need to postpone the exam or not.

P.S the GMAT cannot be postponed(without paying the entire amount)
once there are only 7 days left for your test. If you postpone before
7 days, you will need to pay only 50$ as rescheduling fee.

Hope that helps you!

Hi Anmolgupta824,

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?
2) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)? Please list each Exam.

Goals:
3) What is your goal score?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Rich

How're you with your reading / reading speeds and what is your strategy for RC - Skim or detailed reading?

Alright,
Try to figure out
1) If your current strategy is causing you to lose out on time, if yes - then improve your speeds by practicing more passages.
2) If you're getting questions wrong despite grasping the questions then
a. You are not good with your concepts / lack practice
b. Running out of time

Hi Anmolgupta824,

GMAC has publicly stated that the Official Score that you earn on Test Day is within +/- 30 points of actual ability. Assuming a similar 'swing' in how your CATs function, your various CAT score results (along with your prior Official GMAT Score) show that you essentially performed the same each time (600 +/- a few points). This implies that you've gotten "stuck" at this current score level - and you'll have to make some significant changes to how you handle BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections to get 'unstuck.' Unfortunately, raising a 600 to a 700+ will likely take at least another 2 months of consistent, guided study, so you might need to consider pushing back your Test Date. You need the necessary time to learn and practice some new Tactics.

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

Hi

Which material you are using for verbal? and what is your learning strategy and study timing?
because both are much important in your prep.

Hi,

E-gmat verbal online or the e-gmat verbal live are both amazing courses that can really help you improve your scores.

However, given how close your GMAT date is, I personally do not think one should adopt any new method on the final leg of their GMAT Preparation. It may be nice to give a couple of mocks (the official ones) and work on your weaknesses, but trying something new might not work in anyone’s favour. However if you want to improve on any individual area such as Sentence Correction, you may subscribe to the individual SC course as you can finish the whole course in 10 days (with proper dedication). If however you are only looking to indentify and improve on your weak areas, I would encourage you to purchase the e-gmat scholaranium. It is without a doubt, one of the best practice tools for verbal and will indeed help you on the final leg of your preparations.

Hope this helps. All the best.
