What percentage should a 700+ aspirant target on the OG(12ed). Basically if 700+ aspirants/getters can share their stats, so that i can judge myself it would be great.

So you wanna say that for sm1 targetting 700+ the overall accuracy on the OG shud be more than 60%. Thanks!! _________________ Please press "thanks" if you think my post has helped you.. Cheers!!

Overall accuracy will misguide you. Try to get more accuracy on hard problems which will improve your score for 700+. It seems the number of problems with each difficulty is same. Download the OG error log available in this forum which is quite useful in identifying the difficulty and the concepts tested. Master | Next Rank: 500 Posts Joined 10 Jun 2011 Posted: 234 messages Followed by: 60 members Upvotes: 47 I was watching the movie "Public Enemies" yesterday about the famous Chicago Bank robber John Dillinger. Here is a quote from that movie: Billie Frechette: They're looking at me because they're not used to having a girl in their restaurant in a$3 dress.
John Dillinger: Listen, doll. That's 'cause they're all about where people come from. The only thing that's important is where someone's going.
Billie Frechette: [smiles] Where are you going?
John Dillinger: Anywhere I want.

The point is you could even have a 0% accuracy on the OG - as long as you learn from the mistake, see the underlying patterns, and avoid them on the next set of question! You could have a high accuracy but learn nothing!

So forget about the % game (the real test is computer adaptive so it won't really matter!) and start focusing on learning the concepts and approach.
