Hi Rajat/Payal,

This is Sai Kiran and I am a user of eGMAT Verbal Online subscription.

I am highly excited to share my GMAT success story. I scored 680 in my actual gmat with Q 49, V 34, AWA 6 and IR 8.

This was my 3rd attempt. In each of the last two attempts I scored 550.

Attempt 1: 550 (score cancelled) Q 47 V 17

I took up the subscription of eGmat after my 1st attempt.

I spent a month exclusively on Verbal using eGMAT verbal online.

Attempt 2: 550 (score submitted) Q 42, V 25, IR 5 and AWA 6

Now I felt little weird looking at my Quant scores. My strong area is Quant but surprisingly the scores didn't reflect my strength. I used to constantly score 51 or 50 in my gmat club CATs. However, looking at the improvement in Verbal scores I was elated and motivated. With this energy & enthusiasm I took my 3rd attempt (mentally it was my last attempt).

Attempt 3: 680 (score submitted); Q49, V34, IR 8, and AWA 6.

My entire focus in my 3rd attempt was on improving the accuracy in CR and applying the strategies during the crunch times. I stopped taking full length mocks as I wanted my full attention on improving accuracy rather than on fetching scores.

In my latest attempt, I was pretty sure about my IR and Quant performance but the real demon to crack was Verbal.

Though I was feeling the time pressure, I did not divert from the strategy. The task at hand was not to loose my focus and to keep adopting my strategies and elimination techniques.

Finally I got my score. I dreamt of the magic number 700. But 680 is not a bad score when I look at my background.

I must definitely thank the entire team of eGMAT for putting up such a wonderful material for non natives. The overall approach/methodology built by eGMAT is extraordinary. The modules are broken into sub-modules with pre and post assessment quizzes further followed by application files is really meticulous. The verbal online module has definitely increased my confidence levels specially in the CR which is devil. The performance in the ability quiz of SC kept me motivated. eGMAT helped me master the SC keeping the time constraint in mind.

I would strongly recommend eGMAT especially non-natives who wish to ace and crack GMAT.

The latest quant quiz is extremely helpful. I love those quizzes. They keep pushing the concept levels.

The gear now shifts to the next level. Applications to the colleges.

Thanks a lot team eGMAT.

Regards

Sai Kiran
