I somehow managed to calm down myself and tried to think that what was lies ahead of me is the major thing.. How many B-schools really care about the AWA score if u get a stellar GMAT score? So now I was for the major thing: the battle of 800… Quants:: I knew I’ll ace […]

Well, after having tastes of two Kaplan tests and also after reading the experience of some stalwarts, I didn’t keep my target too high… Assuming a 700+ is almost impossible to touch in a Kaptest, I targeted 680-690 in my Kaptest 3.. Well that was not to be.. If GMAT gurus advise not to take […]

In fact that’s quite inflated as some questions were already covered in the OG and the correct answers started shouting in mind […]
