Verbal Scoring - which questions to guess ?   [#permalink]

Hi All,

Need one suggestion. My timing in Verbal is such that in almost all the tests I have to guess last 3-4 Qs to complete the test within 75 mins.

Will be obliged if you can suggest how I should phase my guesses. I have understood that initial questions are extremely important. So is it better to guess in the middle of the test, say Q21- Q31, or towards the latter part?

As per my limited understanding, it is important to end the test on a high so having enough time for last few questions is important.

I have also read few posts where people have suggested that last few questions don't have much impact on overall scoring.

Will be obliged if someone can share valuable inputs.

Hi Yash,

A few points for you to consider:
1. Technically, the first few questions have the same level of importance as the others. Don't try to get them all. Let the ones you can't get go.

2. Try to go for a balanced timing strategy. Set targets for the first 10 questions, then the next 10... try not to let your guesses bunch up in any one part of the test (neither at the end nor in the middle).

3. It depends. If you're not doing too well, the GMAT won't penalize you too much for getting the last few questions wrong. But if you are doing very well, each and every question counts.
