The GRE Quant Section
GRE is a multi-stage test which means that the GRE will initially have the Quant Section that contains questions of the medium-difficulty level. The level of difficulty in the questions in the second Section depends on the performance of a student in the previous section. When they perform above average in the first Quant Section, the second Section has a high level of difficult questions. Also, When they perform not so well (below average) in the first Section, the second quant section has a medium/low level of difficult questions. This holds true for the Verbal Sections also.
The point is that the score in Quant or Verbal sections, depends on the difficulty level you solve the questions.
We advise you to start to practice with 20 Quant Questions having the medium/low difficulty level within 35 minutes. Furthermore, after achieving high accuracy of 90% in the questions, you can practice 20 high difficulty Questions in 35 minutes.
Errors in Each Section
After research and with expertise, we found that after obtaining 5 to 6 Quant Questions incorrectly among the 40 questions; one can score 167 out of 170 in a GRE-Quant Section. Additionally, after obtaining 8 - 10 verbal questions incorrectly out of 40, one can score 160-161 out of 170 in a GRE -Verbal Section.
The strategy here is to be smart and focus on strengths rather than committing mistakes while worrying regarding answering all the questions correctly in the time.
