Can you go from 0% to 99th Percentile?​

As per the GMAC "Scores below 9 and above 44 for the Verbal section and below 7 and above 50 for the Quantitative section are rare." Checkhere

And lo and behold ... so many of my students have been breaking the Verbal 44 score barrier (and, needless to say, the Quant 50 barrier) rather easily.


The latest to join the ranks is: Zoravar Singh (V51, Overall 770). The highest possible score in Verbal EVER.

To put things in perspective, let me ask you: Do you have any idea as to WHAT V51 MEANS?

Well! It means absolutely NO MISTAKE in Verbal ... not even one! It means 36/36 correct!

V51 is so rare that forget students, no other GMAT trainer in all of ASIA has ever got a score of V51. All the other GMAT-Prep Companies (combined) on the entire planet have never been able to produce even on V51 score in their entire histories.

What makes us at Top-One-Percent produce so, so, so many 99th percentile scorers, every single month?
What’s the secret recipe, the secret formula?


Before answering this question lets first look at what doesn’t qualify for GMAT 760+ score?

Over my teaching career of 25 years, I have heard countless horror stories of a particular type: really sincere students (and quite well versed with all the GMAT topic preparing super hard for many, many months (sometimes for even more than a year), but somehow getting mired in the 600s rut, attempt after attempt, finding no way ou of the misery despite doing everything “possible”. Three specific reasons why you may encounter such a situation:

Students in this set are too scared to practice 750+ level mixed-bag questions under strict time pressure from day one. For example, in Sentence Correction or in Quant, most students master one topic at a time (let’s say Parallelism or Geometry) and then they practice questions based on the same topic (from the Official Guide and other super-easy sources). This gives them a false sense of confidence for three reasons:
A. they already know that “this” is a question based on parallelism (it isn’t so on the test day; you don’t already know what the question is testing you on), and
B. they don’t solve other topics jumbled with SC (all types of SC questions coupled with CR and RC).
C. the questions usually available are below-600-level questions. Most students are scared to challenge themselves with super-tough content from day one.

During the preparation stage, if you keep solving only EASY (500-600-650 level content), you will be lulled into a false sense of security. The real test is a rude shock to students who don't challenge themselves with the absolute top-level content (760-800 range) right from the start. As the GMAT is an adaptive test, the questions become increasingly harder and reach the peak level of toughness / trickiness when you start to touch the 760 level. To this effect, your focus must be on solving questions of a mixed difficulty level, right from day one.
This happens a lot in RC and CR. I hear this grouse all the time: “in RC and CR, my accuracy is quite good if I don’t time myself. But if I time myself, the accuracy drops to less than 50%.” It is equivalent to a marathoner saying: “I can run 42 kilometers, but I need 4 days, not 4 hours.” Such people feel happy even if they manage to solve only one RC passage from the official guide in 27 minutes and get 5/7 correct. Remember: on the test day, you have less than 27 minutes to solve all the four RC passages. Invariably these students have 6-8 questions left in Quant and 8-10 questions left in Verbal to be done in the last 5-7 minutes (including the last RC passage, which, according to them, always happens to be the longest and the most difficult passage in the entire Verbal Section). The result: their mind goes blank, refusing to understand anything, no matter how hard they try to focus. In addition, many students spend a disproportionately huge amount of time in the beginning, only to realize around Q. 10 that “this isn’t my day”.

The solution: always solve using a countdown timer, one that compulsorily stops at the end of ___ minutes. Don’t use a simple clock; using the simple clock is disastrous because most students keep on solving questions even when the time is up. For example, suppose you take four RC passages and set aside 25 minutes. Invariably, you will NOT stop at the end of 25 questions. Later you will go something like this: “I took 41 minutes; so, I need to pace up.” This isn’t a strong message. The message is felt deeply and strongly when, while solving the third passage, the alarm goes off and you are forced to stop. Cultivate the habit of STOPPING when the alarm goes off; doing so may be very painful in the beginning, but is the only effective strategy (keeping the exam in mind).
A lot of students have massive exam anxiety issues. Attempt after attempt, they aren’t able to fix this issue and remain perennially stuck in the 600 rut. Someone who has to run a marathon a few months down the line has to practice running a marathon (under strict time conditions), not just stroll aimlessly in the park every morning. The person has to run with the same intensity, every single day. If you eventually have to concentrate / focus really hard for 3.5 hours on the test day, you must simulate the exam environment right from the word go. This muscle doesn’t build overnight, no matter who you are. I have seen thousands of students who surrendered (“This isn’t my day.”) just after seeing 2 back-to-back RC passages because their concentration went for a toss.

Remember: ONE RC passage can mean the difference between your being an MBA and not being an MBA. JUST ONE RC PASSAGE!

This is a common grouse of these students: “I can’t sit for 3 hours straight. I need a break every 15 min.” Moreover, they have all the distractions going on: WhatsApp messages, Instagram feeds, random calls—as if the world can’t continue for even 15 minutes without these people. Such students commit the cardinal GMAT sin: not building the most crucial aspect of the GMAT game: endurance.

I want you to avoid the Horror of retaking the GMAT. And, needless to say, if you are a GMAT-Retaker, I want this to be your very last attempt. To this effect, the ideal approach has to be a balance between Concept-building and Timedpractice, right from the word go. That’s what my Magic System—The SP.O.R.R.T. Approach—embodies
