Timing Strategies [#permalink] New post 24 Mar 2018, 13:19
Does anyone have any timing strategies during the timed GRE? I often find myself running out of time during my practice exams, and don't go over my work because I'm usually rushing to the next question. Any suggestions would be great!

Timing is the most important aspect of this exam. However if you find yourself rushing over questions without time to reiview it is probably because you are consuming way more time on questions than you can afford.

A strategy pretty common among the students is known as the slide. Look at the interface below.

This method used the buttons on the top bar called Mark and review.

Step 1. When you see a new question estimate if you can do it in 30 seconds or less. If yes then do it.. if no then hit the mark button and move on

Step 2. When you reach the end of the test and hit the review button and see the unanswered questions.

Step 3. Attempt the questions which you can do in a minute and minute and a half range.

Step 4. After the first three steps all you are left with are the heavier questions on the test.

DO NOT obsesses over tough questions at the start of the test.

There are other things that you can adopt to increase the speed of answering questions such as plugging values or elimination methods.
It is not necessary that you solve all the questions in order to get the correct answer. elimination and plugging values are very useful and time saving strategy.

For verbal section if it suits you try doing the Text completion and Sentence Equivalence first and Reading comprehension at the end. As you can properly concentrate your energy on questions that are less dense than RC. Also TC and SE requires less time in answering over RC so spend not more than 1 min for one blank TC, two blank TC and SE questions.
If you are running out of time and you have a long passage you can also just read the first and the last paragraph of the passage to get the gist of the passage.
