Which to focus on? [#permalink]

Hello everyone I took my second GMAT practice exam of the free ones they give you. I am a little bit confused on score vs percentile and which I should focus on when moving forward.

Quant score: 48
Verbal Score: 41
Quant Percentile: 78
Verbal Percentile: 93

Thus my question is should I focus on quant because my percentile is much lower than verbal or should I focus on verbal because the score has more room to grow?

Further info, 7/11 quant problems I got wrong were DS and 8/10 of the verbal I got wrong were Sentence Correction. So I have a clear weak spot in both.

Thanks again to everyone in this incredibly helpful community.

I think you should try to improve Quant because it would be easy to improve and all you need to do is solve 700+ level questions.

Moreover, some of the Bschools do see quant score seriously. All the best :)

Both the scores are similar. A 48+ in Quant is quite acceptable to most schools and above 41 in Verbal is a bit difficult to get. Since you have clear weaknesses in both, I suggest you to work on both equally.

Good score. Now you need to focus on quant, as the single quant score makes difference while calculating percentile. All the best
