This is my second attempt and scored just 620, which is highly devasatating. My break down was Q(47) V(2. First attempt was 550 Q(43) V( 25).
Have not seen much improvement in Verbal. I was expecting above 700. Wondering and trying to figure out where i went wrong and whats my actual weakness in each section

One thing i felt i was lagging was, after all SC or CR Questions, i was not confident enough on the answers.
Regarding each section wise,
CR was my strength. Since my accuracy was around 80 to 90 % during practice. But in GMAT Prep or Actual Test, I was not so confident on CR
SC was kinda night mare always for me. But was able to catch up during practice. But again was not very confident in GMAT Prep
RC was around 90% in GMAT Prep Tests. So its kinda OK though its not my strong area
Quans - I am not so strong in Geometry and Probability. Other than that, everything was kinda ok. May be need to do more practice on Data Sufficieny. Comparatively, DS is my weak area
Already i have taken my 2 attempts and really bothered/ scared (to be frank) to go for my third attempt. Because no of attempts would also matters. So in my next attempt, which i am gonna start to prepare, I really wish to crack with a pretty decent score - 720 +. So basically need 100 + more points.
Any thoughts or suggestions or advice or strategy in this regard is really helpful, since no clue where i am going wrong and what more to refer. Any help is hightly appreciated
