Hi Guys,

I'm planning to give my GMAT in 10 days. I am facing a problem with timing my verbal section.

During my GMAT Prep mock, I had a great start in the verbal section - but towards the end, I had a panic attack because I had about 10 questions to do with about 9 minutes left. Because of this I ended up guessing a lot of those questions. 7 of those 10 were wrong.

I ended up with a score of V37 hence. My overall score was 710 (Q49 V37). I need to get my timing in place somehow before the D-date.

Could you guys please help with any suggestions as to how I should manage this time issue? Any suggestions would be extremely helpful.

Hi sindhya1781,

Pacing issues do NOT exist on their own - they're the results of OTHER issues. Since you're relatively close to your Official Test Date, you probably should not try to make any big changes to how you handle the Exam. In addition, you already appear to be performing really well - and it's not clear what your goals are. If you're really concerned about how you might perform on the Official GMAT, then you should absolutely push back your Test Date though (so that you can continue to study and hone your skills). At worst though, you'll take the GMAT as scheduled and end up with a score that you are not happy with - at which point you'll continue to study and retest. 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) What materials have you used?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?

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

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