To be honest, 7+ points increase on the verbal raw score is difficult. Also, you may want to provide more information. For instance, how did you perform in the individual subsections on some of the recent practice tests? Are you weak in one or two subsections such as CR, SC, or RC? I would not go very far to say that 7 point increase is impossible but doing so is surely difficult.

I had scored a V34 in first GMAT attempt which was 8 months ago.Since then I had always scored V30 and below. My accuracy is around 50-60% in all sections and it varies in all mocks.Sometimes I score exceptionally low in one section and much better same section in another mock I m currently using Veritas mock and GMAC offcial mocks for practise

I agree that it’s going to be challenging to improve by 7+ verbal points in just 10 days. In any case, would you like some general advice on how to improve your GMAT verbal skills?

I agree that it's challenging to rise verbal scaled points by 7 in just 10 days. Not to offense, it seems that your true verbal score is reflected in your second real gmat test and onward.

You need to study OG answer explanation thoroughly and understand deeply why other four answers are wrong and why one imperfect yet correct answer is right.

I think it's challenging to improve that much in such short time..It all depends on the core of your verbal preparation. What sources have you been using? There ain't no short cut for improving so much in such short time, I would recommend that you review each and every question you have solved by far and the OG questions in detail. This might certainly help. you never know , miracles do happen..just keep going and give your 100 percent on the test day. Goodluck :)
