    To score 160 on the GRE Verbal section is challenging, but not as difficult as it is thought to be. An informed approach during your GRE preparation can help you channelize your energy on the right questions and score higher.

    There are 3 things you need to understand clearly even before you start your GRE prep:

    1. Understand the exam well – all the questions within a given section in the GRE carry the same weightage, and there is no negative score for incorrect answers. So, prioritize the easier questions first, and never skip any question! Devise an ideal time management strategy – manage your exam time wisely, and half your work is already taken care of!

    2. Understand the strategies – every exam has its own structure and patterns. Devise your strategy for solving questions based on these patterns. Galvanize’s strategies for solving RC and Discrete questions are the result of continuous research and understanding of the GRE question patterns. Learning to solve questions using these strategies will help you answer faster and with higher accuracy.

    3. Understand your limits – you must also know when to stop trying. Understand that we all have our limitations and play to your strengths. In an exam like the GRE where every minute counts, knowing your limits and moving on to the next question is crucial. Spending 2 more minutes on a question you already have difficulty understanding is not going to help you in any way.

    With Galvanize’s strategies, you will not only learn how to tackle questions better, but you will also learn to understand your limits and play to your strengths! Not to mention, focussed practice and application of these strategies is the next crucial part of chasing your dream of a 160+ score in the GRE Verbal.

    I can assure you that, for someone who has understood the 3 points discussed above, 160+ is well within reach.
