Hello Community,

I would like to thank GMAT Club for this great forum and all the members of this community for helping each other.

This forum is really a huge platform for my improvement. V31 may seem a really low score for numerous test taker. But the same is huge for someone who scored V16 earlier ( especially with 0 percentile in SC).

GMAT Club is extremely beneficial as this place has materials from all the available courses in the market , experts with enormous experience and numerous brilliant and helping minds. It was really beneficial to go through their thought process ,look from different angles and learn. Slowly it helped me to gather courage to reply on the new questions posted and seek expert advise.

Thank you again Gmat Club. Thanks a bunch for the amazing support provided day in and day out !!

Your Verbal score improvement from V16 (13th percentile) to V31 (62nd percentile) is very impressive. V31 is not a low score. It is at 62nd percentiles. many people posting on GMATclub forum tend to have high scores. But the reality, is that many people with low scores do not post on GMATclub forum. Your V31(62nd percentile) is really good.

Congratulations on the awesome score improvement, u1983! houston1980 is absolutely correct: that 31V is a really good score, and sometimes the "Harvard or bust!!" internet culture causes us to lose perspective a little bit. And more importantly: very, very few people manage to improve by 15 points on verbal. It's a spectacularly rare feat, and you should be incredibly proud.

Good luck with your applications, and congratulations again!

u1983

Congratulations on such a stellar performance.

Can you elaborate your study strategy for score improvement on below lines?
  • a. What was your %tile in CR and RC at start?
  • b. What courses (self prep/ online) did you use to advance?
    If Self prep (e.g Manhattan books) , how did you plan your study hours and allocate
    attention to individual sub sections?
  • c. Did you face any fatigue and/or timing issues in your mocks / had to make a random guess?
  • d. What was the frequency that you kept between mocks and what strategies did you use to analyse them?
  • e. Did you use LSAT material in your prep?
  • f. Are you planning for a re-take? I believe you can still improvise on Quant and push V beyond V35 and
    we hope to see another sweet story of success on 'Share GMAT experience' forum . :-)

Can you elaborate your study strategy for score improvement on below lines?
  • a. What was your %tile in CR and RC at start? To be frank I was at 0/5 percentile at my 1st attempt and was unable to live with that... thus I went for 2nd attempt...was not concentrating much on CR or Rc either of the time. :-(
  • b. What courses (self prep/ online) did you use to advance? @e-Gmat
    If Self prep (e.g Manhattan books) , how did you plan your study hours and allocate
    attention to individual sub sections? Just trying to learn SC rules.... clearly could not learn all :-(
  • c. Did you face any fatigue and/or timing issues in your mocks / had to make a random guess? Have not taken much mocks... 1/2 here and there .... but in main exam Verbal timing was issue due to my poor knowledge and in tern in decision making on the choices.
  • d. What was the frequency that you kept between mocks and what strategies did you use to analyse them? NA
  • e. Did you use LSAT material in your prep? NO ..... LSAT is probably the next level . I am not even comfortable with GMAT level.
  • f. Are you planning for a re-take? I believe you can still improvise on Quant and push V beyond V35 and Yes... planning .... but donot have a date
    we hope to see another sweet story of success on 'Share GMAT experience' forum . :-) Thanks a bunch !!

How did you proceed with increasing ur score in Verbal? And how long did take to get this score-leap?. My current score is 22 and i aim to score 36+ with 2 months in hand. Is it possible in 2 months?
