GRE 323 - Syed Farzan Ahmed


My name is Syed Farzan Ahmed and I'm a mechanical engineering graduate from NED Karachi, I recently gave the GRE and received a score of 158V, 165Q, and 5.0 AWA. My prep strategy is more or less simple; I used the magoosh 6-month plan and practiced 20 verbal and 20 quantitative questions daily. Aside from that, I practiced all 650 basic and common words from the magoosh GRE flashcards list. This, along with the regular reading of internet articles is all that I needed to achieve a good score on the GRE. To future students, I would recommend Magoosh, hardworking and dedicated. Most importantly, I would recommend anyone taking the GRE to stay calm before and during the paper. Stress management is key towards a good score. It can make up to a 5 point difference on the actual test. Keep practicing reading and writing skills for verbal and practice maths extensively, and most of all, stay calm and composed in test day, and hopefully, you will be able to score great.

Scholar Den Platform made me confident about the actual test, what to expect, how much to prepare, etc. I also got to solve a lot of hard and tricky questions that prepared me for the actual GRE.
