Computer Adaptive Format
In a computer-adaptive test, questions are chosen from a very large pool of test questions categorized by content and difficulty and presented one at a time. The test is constantly targeting your individual ability level. In each section, your answer for each question will determine the level of your next question. Consequently, you must enter an answer for each question and you may not go back to make changes. If you answer a question incorrectly by mistake or correctly by lucky guess, your answers to subsequent questions will lead you back to questions that are at the appropriate level of difficulty for you.
Teaching Pedagogy for Quantitative & Verbal Part
Exercises are assigned from GMAT Official Guide. We make our students practice one question type at a time, so that they develop sound reasoning and proper approach, which will in turn enhance their expertise and confidence. After completion of individual exercises, the detailed discussion is taken in which our teachers try to understand the reasoning and approach followed by students.
If a student is found to be not following the right approach, our teachers guide him. During essay sessions of GMAT topics are chosen from official pool and discussed with the students. After discussion of ideas, guidelines are given for composition of essays.
