Hi, actually I goofed, I got a 690 instead of a 680.
You are right, I took the exams recently:
My scores, again are:
630 (79%), 690 (91%),
You said 20 was not, just not an improvement. I wonder if 30 points
is a big drop or not?
Okay and the math verbal attributes are for each exam respectively:
Math 42 (66%), Verbal 34 (72%);
Math 45 (77%), Verbal 39 (89%);
Math 43 (70%), Verbal 37 (83%);
It seems like a point difference goes a long way! For instance, I got a 680 on the real thing last year, and the only thing that changed from it and my CAT #2 was one point on the verbal to bring me up to 690!My goal is to get over a 700.
Like you said, it could happen. I just don't know whether to test my luck and take the exam July 2nd and be done with it, or pay money to push it forward some more, but it cost money to switch dates and I would be so burnt out trying to study and get stuff taken care of for grad school, I move August 6th and class starts August 10th. What is your advice?????
Anyway, you asked I know my weaknesses. Here is my analysis:Timing:
Cat 1: Math: timing was bad, guessed on 4 math questions and did not answer the last 1 (timed out), for a string of 5 wrong. Verbal: Oddly had extra time left in verbal.
Cat 2: Math: Timing improved in Math, only timing out on the last question. Also timed out on last Verbal question. Verbal: Overall improvement in timing.
Cat 3: Math: Timing worsened, finished the entire exam but had some strings wrong in the middle. I spent too long on a few problems in the middle in contrast to my first exam in which I had a string of 5 wrong at the end. Verbal: Once again did not answer the last question, but spent too long on RC 1st question.
Conclusion: I need to not take too long on any math problems and work quicker on RC.Content:
I ran the Assessments MGMAT provides on the last 2 exams (CAT 2 & 3). I had trouble determining my weaknesses on Verbal, other than maybe RC Detail (odd) and Inference. My average difficulty RIGHT and Average Difficulty WRONG respectively are:
CR: 700, 710;
SC: 690, 740;
RC: 620, 740.
My average difficulty RIGHT and Average Difficulty WRONG respectively are:
PS: 610, 650
DS: 640, 700
I can only determine that I need to improve on Word Translations & that I am awesome at Number Properties other than I am REALLY terrible on Divisibility & Primes. I thought if there was a way to pick out Divisibilty & Primes in the OG then that could help. Any advice on this??????
So, based on this information, can you give me any advice????
