MLDrima please don't feel bad. If I tell you what I scored doing the GRE twice then you would really praise yourself. The best of my two scores were not anywhere near yours. You can imagine that.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Simon33: 11:13pm On Jan 06|
I'm sorry I don't really see it that way super small. Yes its good to post scores for people to learn but when the scores are not good, one feels depressed. I've been there twice and I know how it feels. I believe it takes quite a while depending on one's emotional strength to get over such low score and move on. GRE doesn't even wait after the exam. You will get your result there, as in hot hot. Well its an experience I believe we can conquer when properly armed.
Please to those who didn't do well cheer up. Don't feel bad. You can always better your best,...yes your best! Why because at every point you sit for an exam understand you've done the best preparation you can. You might have failed to achieve a desired score but don't give up. I believe I can do better just as super small says.
Impossible is nothing!

Well said, but I believe we that just wrote learnt from some people's experiences, posting some of our flaws might help someone else prepare better.
After seeing my test scores, I just made up my mind not share anything, cos I was heartbroken, but supersmall just moved me to just say my little piece.
I had been following the thread around February last year, got all the materials I used here, the Google Drive links, etc.
So I think I shot my self in the leg by not giving verbal adequate attention.
UG GPA: 3.81/5 (wes unofficial 3.34)
Toefl: registering asap
Sent my scores to
Gurus your thoughts please.

If you read through past posts, you'll see I recommended B.Y Mafit. You can check them out. The lectures are free.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by frostsc: 2:12am On Jan 07|
It happens like that. Sorry about your experience. The thing about success is it never comes easy. When I did my own GRE, I had to resign from work. People saw me as crazy. Many at times people come here and post success stories and all but they don't go deep into the sacrifices they made to make it happen.
I understand also that writing the test again needs a lot of pshycing up. Many people write the test and they have significant improvements but only when they are able to learn from their flaws and develop on them.
Nothing good comes easy. Please restrategize and re-fire. I believe you should be able to ace the TOEFL.
Best of luck
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by frostsc: 2:44am On Jan 07|
Very true. If not for this thread, I would still be working my shitty job and wouldn't have known exactly what to do.
No one is really saying anything any longer. No experiences and all. At least, I came back to state my experience and what worked for me.
It would be selfish of you to take from here and not give back. Even if it's a word or two, it can go a long way in helping someone else.
Let's put more life please.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by DexxyAlebs(m): 2:57am On Jan 07|
I appreciate the kind words, many thanks.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by ponpon(m): 5:37am On Jan 07|
Start applying sir, you'll get into a good program and funded, ensure other parts of your app are top notch

pronto543:This seems to be the best approach... Meanwhile, my main ref who is a foreign educated prof doesn't take time to complete his recommendations. I submitted application on a Friday, by Sunday he's completed it and even called me. Meanwhile I didn't even inform him. But the others, I've sent reminders, several calls and messages. And they will always promise, tomorrow, when I get home, when I get to the faculty... Lol. Later, excuses, busy, no light, etc... Na God go help me o.

Took the GRE on 4th January. I couldn't afford to quit my job so I had to manage.I work everday and weekends(Saturday and Sunday). So it was really tasking to prepare and write the GRE. My prep was done in snatches;in Lagos yellow buses,during lunch breaks,in between work lulls etc. Took 1st to 3rd January off to cram in as much work as possible.All of my work was Quant focused.
Test day was ok. The 3+ hours didn't affect me since all my exams in the university lasted for at least 3 hours. After this long story,my scores were:
GPA- 4.67/5 (Pharmacy)
Prospective course of study- Biotechnology,Genetic engineering-Still haven't decided yet.
I am a bit disappointed with the verbal score because I scored as high as 164 in my Powerprep test (Didn't prep for verbal though since English has always been my forte)but slightly elated with the Q score as my cold diagnostic was a mere 144.I'm thinking of taking two weeks off and rewriting since I know I can easily smash the 325 mark with focused prep. To all prospective test writers, u can do it!

Anybody experiencing delay in int'l transcript evaluation due to the ongoing strike by NASU?
I'm stuck!... Any suggestions?? Running out of time
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by PHUMEELAYO(f): 6:54pm On Jan 07|
Oh.... I'm sorry. I got a 314, V165 Q149 (was surprised at this score; never been good with math exams). Though I'm still trying to understand how knowing my score helps anyone.
I already talked about my study schedule and the simple strategies I applied on test day.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by freshyabstel: 7:53pm On Jan 07|
LOL, mbok I'm not looking for a free lecture center, but for a very impactful and educative one.
Thanks super much.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by MLDrima: 8:52pm On Jan 07|
Thank you sir for the encouragement and wonderful advice.
I will go ahead and apply and will try to make my SOP a top notch that will supplement my weak points. I will also put on my best on the CV, though I don't have any experience. I just graduated last year.
Publishing a paper will be difficult for me now due to time constraints. but I will look into it, possibly my final year thesis.
I have started sorting out some faculty members with same research interest as mine. I want to look at their published papers before contacting them. I just hope there is no problem in contacting more than one within the same department at same time?
As for M Sc/PhD route, the truth is am not set for it now. I am not sure whether I can endure the PhD stress.
thanks once again
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by MLDrima: 8:58pm On Jan 07|
Will apply sir, and will make sure the other parts cover my lapses. Thank you for been optimistic about me
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by MLDrima: 9:05pm On Jan 07|
Thank you for the encouragement. and so sorry for your score. its really depressing to think of all the resources one put and ends with low score. I believe you will ace it this time. Just try and work on your weak areas.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by frostsc: 9:18pm On Jan 07|
Sorry I suggested. This is one of the reasons people don't say much here. I never said it's a free public school. It's something that helped me that I shared. And the lectures are top notch.
All the same, best of luck.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by frostsc: 9:22pm On Jan 07|
If you know someone in exams and records of your school, it can be fast tracked. Depending on the school though. Maybe you place some calls.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Schrodinger1(m): 10:25pm On Jan 07|
PHUMEELAYO:Its good to know it came out good. However, we'll appreciate if you give us the full detail about your experience before and during the test and perhaps the score. Albeit you are entitled to your opinion, thats the norm, its how we roll here and it has kept us and the thread united. Irrespective of the score, the house gonna learn from it. Fall admit with full funding fall on us.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by ponpon(m): 10:38pm On Jan 07|
315 to 325, that's 10 point jump in 2 weeks, I'll hope not using the same materials and you already know your weak points, on the hand I'll advise you use your score well because you have a competitive GPA and high percentile on both V and Q start your applications sir, there's literally no time left for '' roborebe'', if you want to retake I'll advise you wait for your diagnostic score, work on your weak areas and take at least a month to prep
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by arTiculaTe01: 8:41am On Jan 08|
Thanks for the insight
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by HiredGames(m): 3:13pm On Jan 08|
Life is not a bed of roses.
At some point we need to come to a realization of the need to "embrace" failure.
In my weird opinion, I'd even think failure teaches more life lessons than success.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by akatovic1: 9:42pm On Jan 08|
Please who knows whether Texas A and M college station accepts uploaded unofficial transcript for application review?
Note: I have already mailed the admissions office this same question but will want someone with experience to please answer because of time constraint
