Hello,

I gave my GMAT and scored a demeaning 530. However, in my mocks, I was consistently score 650+. My target score is 700+, to be achieved in the next 1 month.

Question 1. What went wrong in Quant? I was consistenly scoring Q47+ in my mocks. On the actual GMAT I lost close to 2 min because of the extended break and had to guess the last 4 - 5 questions. Had I not lost these 2 mins and answered two out of last 4 questions correctly, would it impact my score? My target score is anything above Q48+

Question 2 - I am weak in SC. However, my RC seems decent. and need to push CR. I got 75% of the questins correct in the first 9 questinos. Dont know what happened in the second quarter.

Thanks a lot
Cheers!

Hi ace12314,

I'd be happy to help! Could you post a screenshot of your ESR, or at least summarize the main points, so that I can take a closer look? Thanks!

Thank you for your revert Carolyn. I am unable to post screenshots and attach ESR report.
Can you please share your email id so that I can mail it to you?

Hi ace12314,

Thanks for sending your ESR -- sorry for the delay!

And here are some time management tips:

For Verbal, it does look like SC, and grammar especially, is your main weakness. I'd recommend focusing on that, as well as CR.

GMAT Sentence Correction questions test multiple concepts and require a strong understanding of English grammar. The best way to excel on these questions is to practice SC questions and thoroughly study your practice so that you understand why correct answer choices are correct and why wrong answer choices are wrong. If you are serious about improving your verbal score, you must read as much as possible. Here are suggested reading materials: GMAT Reading List

It's key to remember that to really improve, it's necessary to practice and review rigorously. Understanding a concept and answering a question correctly are separate skills. You need to practice answering questions to get better. Attempt as many questions as you can and really spend the time to understand each question after you answer it, even if you answered it correctly. You should take notes on the different wrong answer types and take notes on the wording of the question and its connection to the question type.

Again, I'd recommend spending time each day going through the relevant articles on the Magoosh blog for further help with strategy and practice:

And finally, make sure you review this post on learning from your practice:

I hope that helps a bit!
-Carolyn
