Hey guys,

Here are my results of 2 mock tests. I don't understand the paradox: in attempt with lower result all 1-20 are correct (theoretically having higher impact). The ratio of correct/incorrect answers is almost the same in both attempts, differing in 1 incorrect answer only. Please see attached files.

Any thoughts?


I see that you have 6 consecutive questions wrong in the middle of the test and then also in the end, which brings your score down badly. But the questions marked wrong in the second CAT are well distributed. and those that you marked consecutive wrong in the very end kept you below V40.

Marking questions correct in the start is very beneficial and after that we need to attempt the rest of the test in such a way that we do not mark so many questions wrong in a row.


So, do you agree that the best strategy is to:

1. Spend extra time/efforts to answer first 10 correct
2. Speed up on 11-31 questions, even if doing so makes the accuracy lower
3. If you have to skip several questions to keep up with time, you have to do so in different parts of your test, to avoid line of incorrect answers, hence all RC should be approached, living us only with SC and CR that can be skipped.

I know that the best way is to solve everything. But the above scenario is for test takers who struggle with time management.

Guys,

Can anyone analyse the situation wherein one gets 50% questions correct for Verbal?

Hey souvik101990 can you please give more what if scenarios in verbal


Hi I am running three new scenarios today.

1. Missing the last 9 questions.
2. Missing the middle 9 questions.
3. Guessing all RCs and marking everything else correctly. Should be up in 12 hours, so stay tuned :)


Dude when can we expect the other scenerios? I mean it is way past 12 hours now :-D

Any attempts on the myth of skipping questions on verbal? I read that skipping the last questions (up to 4) in verbal insead of guessing might be a better idea (what if you get 3 very easy questions wrong because of guessing vs just skipping them alltogether?)

I think thats a what if worth doing as there are many people strrugling to finish verbal (i have difficulties to finish the section and usually rush or guess the last 4)

I also heard that if you answer the last X questions under Y minutes, the software detects that you are guessing and penalizes you for not managing your time. Is that true?

Thanks for the great content!
