I appeared for my first GMAT test today after 2 months of preparation. My score was 620 (Q48, V28). I totally screwed up in verbal. I was looking forward for 700+ score. I am very very disappointed. I want to get admission in INSEAD and I am preparing just for that.

I am not a native English speaker. And I always have this 'English'-phobia. Whenever i study about SC, I understand everything and can solve examples provided there, but as soon as I start answering actual questions, my mind totally goes blank.

Now first round of admission deadline for INSEAD for SEP13 intake is 3rd October, which is almost month away. I have one month to prepare and re-appear for GMAT to improve my score to 700+ and also work on essays and admission kit in the meantime.

I know if I work hard on verbal, I can improve my score. But one month for both (preparing essays and study for GMAT) is feasible?

And also please guide me how to overcome this 'English'-phobia?

I am sorry to hear that you could not score as expected on the GMAT. First of all, to score 700 you would need to improve by 7 points on Verbal. Having applied to B-schools in the past, I know that completing the application is quite demanding as well. Assuming you are working full time, I would recommend that you first focus on getting a good GMAT score and then apply for the second round.

Secondly, I would recommend that you try our course. Our SC course is probably the most comprehensive in the industry and has helped thousands. We offer a very generous free trial, which you can check out by clicking here. We also have a free session this week on SC. You will get an invite provided you are a registered user on our portal.
