Kindly help - ESR attached

Hello folks, I am stuck in the vicinity of V40 and need your guidance on how to break this plateau. Unfortunately, I have nobody else to take guidance from, and online forums are my only source.

GMAT 1st attempt on Feb 3rd - 720 Q48 V40.
2nd attempt on Feb 22nd - 740 Q49 V41

I have done OG17, GMAC practice questions, OG verbal review and Manhattan's strategy guides.

--- In my attached latest ESR, it appears that I was wrong on 6 questions. Is that interpretation right?
--- Does that mean people who get V51 get every problem right?
--- If 6 questions dropped the score by 10 points (51 - 41 = 10), does that mean every question i got wrong dropped my score by about 2 points?

Thank you very much.

Hi DHILLONRAVI1983,

To start, both of these scores are outstanding (they're both well above the 90th percentile), so you should apply to any Business Schools that interest you. As such, a retest is almost certainly not necessary. Depending on your overall profile - and the Schools/Programs that you want to apply to - your time would likely be better spent working on other aspects of your application(s).

As an aside, in a prior post, you appeared to show some interest in Finance-based Programs. Highly-ranked Programs that focus on that specialty tend to place a higher value on an applicant's Quant Scaled Score, so raising your Quant 2-3 more points would likely be far more beneficial to your overall profile than raising your Verbal Scaled Score 2-3 points.

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