Background:
Fasih Ur Rehman here, recently graduated from Pakistan (3.2 CGPA) and currently working in Friesland Campina with a years work experience and more coming.
Planning to apply for MBA 2021 in T-20 Universities. As such my GMAT aim is 730+ so I can atleast safely be in the median of most of these universities.

Progress:
I registered for my GMAT in the first week of August with a test date of 9th November. It's been about two months and I've brushed up most of my mathematical concepts through MGMAT guides and also gone through RC and CR from MGMAT as well. My focus however has been more towards the Quant side so far because my math was very rusty when I started. I sat through the two free GMAC's recently and my scores are as below.
Test 1 (13 Aug 2019) - 710 (Q49-V38)
Test 2 (05 Oct 2019) - 700 (Q47 - V40)

My aim was before was to get a 730+. My Quant aim was to get 48+ and Verbal aim was to get 41+. (In Verbal I was getting far lesser problems wrong in CR or RC, most of my incorrect answers were from the SC questions of the )

Current Scenario:
My job requires a fair bit of travelling and I'm not entirely sure just yet where I'll actually be on the test date. I have an assignment coming up for the next four months where I'll be based in one city, this assignment is supposed to start in November. As a result I will mos likely be postponing/changing venue of my test because I was unaware of this assignment and my test was originally scheduled in my current city.The cost of travelling and not to mention the resulting fatigue makes this a far wiser choice then the former.
I am now considering that not only do I change the test venue but also postpone it till the end of November. After having done so, attack the remainder of the time left with an aggressive study plan that will further supplement by Quant score as well as improving my Verbal score as well.

This is where I was hoping for some help.
1-Is this the right call?
2-And if so what study plan and resources would you suggest given my scenario?

Thank you all for your help. This community has helped me beyond belief.
Cheers! :)

I reckon I am in the same boat as you mate. Just that I am bit more confident about my Quant but really need to improve my Verbal ability (especially SC and CR).

Let me know if you get to know any good Verbal practice material. Any help on how to proceed will be appreciated.

Best of luck to you.

Hi anuragkumar08,

I see it's been about 6 months since your last post. Are you still looking for advice regarding GMAT verbal?
