My first attempt Gmat was horrible I got a very low score. So I will take it again in next 3 months. I’m preparing for RC now and found one passage of GRE RC exactly same passage of GRE tutorials RC appeared to my real Gmat last week even the first question is also same. That meant the questions can be repeated again?

Its extremely unlikely that a Q will be repeated. I would not count on it much .... and rather concentrate on improving the skill. ??. Al the best.!!

Don't count on the fact that questions will repeat on GMAT. cuz it dosen't! focus on solving atleast 3 RC everyday from official guide to get used to the pattern and comprehension. Goodluck.

for verbal practise as much from official sources
repetition of question in RC is not something you should worry about, area of concern is how to get the answer correct..

Are you saying that you saw an actual GMAT passage/question on GRE prep material? If yes, I suggest you report it to Pearson.

Hi Teitsuya,

I'm sorry to hear that Test Day did not go as well as hoped. To confirm what you stated in your first post - did you see an RC prompt on the OFFICIAL GMAT that you took last week that you also saw in some PRACTICE GRE materials? Can you provide a link to that prompt (it might actually be posted here on GMATClub)?

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for for this next phase of your studies, 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 study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs/mocks (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?
4) What was your Score on the Official GMAT (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?

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

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

I agree that you should not expect to see any repeated questions on your GMAT. That said, are you looking for advice regarding your study plan?

Feel free to reach out with further questions.

Good luck!
