Stuck at Q50-How to move to Q51?

Post Sat May 28, 2016 8:29 pm
I have taken the GMAT twice and scored Q50 on both occasions. I am desperate to move to Q51 as ive read that this might improve my overall score by 20 points.

Can the experts guide on how to do this? 2 options that I am confused about:
1. GMAT Club tests-These offer a plethora of tough questions.
2. eGMAT Math Scholarinium- New course? Will this help?

GMAT 1:
V 30
Q 50
670

GMAT 2:
V 33
Q 50
700

Frankly speaking, if I were you i would not waste my time in thinking how to improve from Q50 to Q51.
There is very little that separates the two.

What I would be thinking is how to raise my Verbal score from V33.
With a V33, you do not even have a 70th percentile on Verbal and this might, might not bode well for your application at certain schools.

If you can increase your Verbal score to the 40s, you can get a much higher score jump that what you will get in increasing your score from 50 to 51.
You can post back here if you need help increasing your Verbal score.

I hope I make some sense.

Hi whatisinthename11,

Raising your Quant Scaled Score 1 point is almost certainly not going to raise your overall score 20 points (it would likely raise it 10 points). With a 700/Q50, you already have an outstanding score (it's right around the 90th percentile overall), so there's some question as to why you want to retest. Assuming you're looking to raise your overall score by a considerable margin, you're going to have to find those missing points in the Verbal section.

1) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
2) When are you planning to apply?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
