Hey guys,

After some research I felt that there was a lack in a clear timing strategy that would include the importance of the first 10 questions, which are more important as everybody knows.

I have included an excel spreadsheet, where my methodology is explained, so you can understand it and adapt it when needed.

I strongly believe that this timing strategy is the one that should be used by almost everybody!

Please include some recommendation if you have some, I would love to hear some opinions!

(this is only for quant, as I believe that verbal should be approached more holistically, just as bb thinks)

Thnx in advance and like if it was helpful,
GOODLUCK

Those links have different strategies

They focus on an equal time allotted for every question

The strategy that I posted focusses on spending more time for the 10 first question (2min 40 to be exact) , offering you the time targets to measure your pace effectively

I believe that the best strategy is to make the most valuable questions first and then make ones that are less valuable, and then all the others.
Have you already tried your strategy at the real test? what was the result?

The questions at the beginning are the most valuable, that's why everybody should spend more time on them (if needed of course)

So far I've tried it only on mock test, with a positive outcome
