Finally breached the 750 barrier on MGMAT#5. No short cuts … wrote the two essays before starting the test. Again the AWAs were easy and passed without trouble. Really pumped up with the results :D. The scores today were :
Quant – 50 (95%)
Verbal – 45 (99%)
Overall – 770 (99%)
The analysis of the two sections.
Again lost time around the 30th question. Ended up rushing through the last few questions. Still not properly timing my quant section.
Incorrect and guessed answers :
1. P4 (DS, 99 to 83 %ile) – old achilles’ heel of getting the triangle in a circle geometry problem wrong.
2. P8 (DS, 99 to 87 %ile) – silly mistake of considering n instead of n-2.
3. P13 (DS, 99 to 92 %ile) – another silly mistake because of rushing through the question.
4. P14 (DS, 92 to 86 %ile) – days for silly mistakes … used 1 and 2 to answer the question and marked only 2 is sufficient
5. P22 (PS, 99 to 94 %ile) – error in interpreting the information in the qs.
6. P34 (PS, 99 to 96 %ile) – solved for a wrong value
7. P37 (PS, 99 to 96 %ile) – failed to answer the question due to lack of time
1. P4 (CR, 99 to 90 %ile) : chose the wrong option to strengthen the argument.
2. P8 (RC, 99 to 95 %ile) : failed to identify the purpose of the passage
3. P17 (SC, 99 to 95 %ile) : misplaced modifier
4. P20 (CR, 99 to 94 %ile) : failed to identify the assumption needed for the passage
only four mistakes in Verbal 😀
1. “Which” must modify the immediately preceding noun only; it cannot modify the action of an entire clause
2. The expression “as though” introduces a supposition that is contrary to fact. Such suppositions must be expressed in the subjunctive mood. For example, in the phrase “I wish I were rich,” the verb “were” is in the subjunctive because the phrase expresses a desire contrary to fact.
