I would suggest you take a mock test and divide the preparation time for each section based on your mock test score. Usually the verbal section takes more time since it is much more difficult than the quant section.

Hi Snigdha, before deciding upon a schedule, one needs to know what parts to focus on verbal and quant sections. if you know your weaknesses then you ought to spend time on that. Once you do a couple of practice tests, you would know which sections to focus on in verbal as well as quant. A handy tip though: rather than spending entire day on only verbal or quant section, try interspersing practice from each section. Alternating between verbal and quant will make the practice less boring. In oreder to excel in verbal section, daily reading is a must, be it scientific journal, blogs or from other sources. Another daily practice is the vocabulary. Using flash cards, underling tough words from daily reading and looking them up later as well as practicing with your friends (asking the meaning of words) are good practices. However, in order to get to your target scores, working with a mentor/coach can give you that extra edge. Best of luck for your practice and wishing you get good scores. read less

Hi Snigdha, mock tests of most test prep companies can provide analytics to determine your weaknesses and strengths. In my opinion, you must devote equivalent time to both math and verbal.

Hi Snigdha, mock tests of most test prep companies can provide analytics to determine your weaknesses and strengths. In my opinion, you must devote equivalent time to both math and verbal. The more important question is what to exactly focus on for both sections. You're expected the score almost a full mark on Math, which means you ought to get rid of unnecessary errors (Silly calculation mistakes). Students typically make these errors in Data Interpretation questions or multiple answer questions, but then again you may be different. On Verbal, you need to maximize your score by focussing on which question type you may be struggling with(Mock test analytics can determine this fairly objectively). You may chose to show your mock test and review it with a test prep instructor for betting understanding of the way forward. All the best! read less

Set small targets initially. Make a group of 6 to 12 questions then try to do in 8 to 15 minutes. When you reached at a level where you start doing question within 75 seconds then increase number of question and time.

I would suggest that you take one demo or model paper to understand where you stand on quants section. Based on your weaknesses in quant, you can allocate time for that. If you are very good with quants section, you can allocate 1/3 of the total time for quants and remaining preparation time should be... read more

You need to spend more time on the sections you are weak. I do not know whether you are weak in Quants or Verbal as you have not shared your scores on the tests you have taken.You need to spend more time on the weaker sections.

Try to devote more time on verbal as the most of questions being asked in quants section can easily solved by most of the engineering students. You can devote 30 % time to quants and 70% tine to Verbal for efficient preparation

Hi Snigdha, I think what you need is a proper plan of attack. For this you need to map out your strengths and weakness in both Verbal and Quant, topic wise and question format wise. You need to then allocate time to gain proficiency in each of these. Also you need to do practice exercises... read more
Hi Snigdha, I think what you need is a proper plan of attack. For this you need to map out your strengths and weakness in both Verbal and Quant, topic wise and question format wise. You need to then allocate time to gain proficiency in each of these. Also you need to do practice exercises and tests to check your proficiency. So this time-allocation will depend on introspecting on your strengths and weaknesses. It is not as much the number of hours as what you do in those hours and how you study, and how you track your progress. These are the important things. You can message me if you want detailed instructions on how to go about it. I can draw up a time table for you, if you wish. Thank you. read less
