Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Onlinebar: 9:44am On Jan 29
bayocanny:
I woke up exactly at 9am on Saturday morning for 10am exam (village people wan reason my matter but I no gree), I quickly shower and rush down to the receptionist and check out from the hotel. As a JJC wey I be for Lagos I don't have choice than to ask for directions to my test center, mehn Lagos folks no get joy some of them don't even answer me not to talk of helping me out of my situation.
To cut the story short I found my way to oshodi, I approached a young man and asked for directions to Gbagada, dude took me to a nearby motor park under the bridge and hand me over to one rugged looking agbero, I told the guy that am going to gbagada he said I should enter that the bus is heading to that side, i quickly jumped in like a policeman that wants to forcefully collect bribe from a motorist lol.
After about two minutes on the road we got hooked in a long hold up, I checked my time it was exactly 9:30am i chuckled and i said to myself "Bayo, na the second trick wey don wan use catch u be dis". I politely asked a old man sitting beside me how long is gbagada from where we are, he said is still far i inquire if it is treekable he said no, Haa!! i don enter am today i was sweating profusely thinking of how am going to by pass the traffic, I look through the window there was no sign of bike men, at this point i don't have a choice than to accept my faith that e don be for me today 50k go down the drain my American dream is about to be cut short, lots of things are running my mind yet I kept my cool knowing fully well that i will make it.
At about 9:45am the road was through and I got to my test center at 10:15am I quickly locate a food vendor nearby and I ordered for a plate of rice because hunger wey dey wire me that time ehn, i can't explain it lol. I got into the test center and did my clearance filled the form and signed, the security asked me to tender my means of identification I showed him my international passport and appointment script he said the name on my passport does not tally with the appointment page, I say wetin oga check very well jor I was so furious and frustrated, are you blind or what? I asked him. He said sorry it was a mistake.

DURING THE TEST

The first section happens to be the Issue task, it was quite easy and understandable because have come across it before on ETS website, check here... http://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/issue/pool.
The Argumentative task was tough but I managed to write 6 paragraphs. Afterwards, I was presented the Quantitative section, the questions is not too hard but I fumbled alot i encountered some integers, geometry, word problems and data presentation. I barely use the on screen calculator because most of questions does not requires long calculation, I did my best and proceeded to the verbal section. Here, the time fly like a bird unlike the quantitative where you have luxury of time, I approached the Reading Comprehension first and spent approximately 15minutes on them then I move on to the TC and SE questions, unfortunately all the vocabularies I learnt didn't show up but those I encountered was very easier for me, i later discovered that have over read lol.
At the end of the test the computer displayed my scores on the screen V... 160. Q... 149.


TIPS.

Based on my experience, I will advise those that wants to write the GRE exam to embrace the official guide, I take God beg you that materials is the real deal the reason why i have a low score on my quantitative was because I didn't make use of the official guide but I read it for verbal.
For those that are weak in calculations pls don't be scared start from scratch, make sure you have the GRE Math Bible it's very effective and helpful, you can also get Manhattan series, they've got some madt elimination method for the quantitative section.
I will recommend the official guide for verbal, follow by Manhattan 5lb then magoosh, you will be fine. Don't bother to memorize vocabularies if you want to learn words effectively have a mobile dictionary on your phone Merriam Webster preferably and make use of www.dictionary.com it helpful.
Concerning reading comprehension, make sure you are reading at least two articles on The New Yorker, The Economist and Aldaily.com they have got some abstruse passages, all you need to do is to make sense of the articles and summarize it, I did it and it really helps alot.
Practice practice and practice if not for God sake at least for the sake of your hard earned 50k lol. I discovered I was weak in calculations and I embrace the concept of "strength my strength " which lies in verbal, however, I immersed myself in quantitative learning some basic ideas and approach.
The GRE demands mental strength, it's not easy to gaze at the computer for 4hours, when it is a week to your exam stop reading be sleeping very well, on the examination day it's not advisable to bring text books to the test center you don't need it. Eat very well and drink enough water before you leave for the exam and make sure you arrived at test center very early at least an hour to the exam, don't be like me ensure you set up your alarm before you sleep.


We can do it!!!!!!!

While you can still get funding in winter or fall depending on your program, your chance is minimal. The best intake for funding is fall admission. Goodluck.
