Hello All,

I took the GMAT exam on 29-07-2018 and scored a dismal score of 600 (V24,Q49). I was scoring in the range of 660-720 in mocks. Please analyze the ESR report and give me your valuable feedback, analysis and suggestions on how I can improve my score. My target score is 740+.

Thanks,
Som

Critical reasoning stands out as your weakest area--was this also true of your mocks? I would focus on that area, drilling many questions from the GMATClub question banks. Always try to figure out the author's specific claim--most errors come from being sloppy with that formulation. The good news is you have a great quant score and that you reached a 720 during practice. As long as that was a true score (i.e., not a retake of a CAT), getting a 720 or higher shouldn't be that difficult.

Another tip--if you take the verbal section first, you can use the 2-minute tutorial and other introductory screens to write down "12345" or "abcde" 35 times on your scratch paper. Then you can cross out incorrect answers as you go (I also underline "maybes") and don't have to spend time doing this in the exam. If you take a lot of notes on the text, you can space these out so you still have room to write.

Hi charmingsom
I am not an expert, but I noticed one thing in your ESR. In both the main sections, your time per question in the end of the section is very less as compared to starting of the section. It gradually became very less. Probably you struggled with time management, that led to many incorrect questions. How was your time management in mocks? Also, how many and which mocks have you taken?
