2 Rules to improve on GMAT SC
There are so many concepts, but knowing these two rules will improve your score on SC. Many students struggle to track all the concepts, but we have consolidated these rules to boost your scores.
Strangely, even the native speakers stumble upon the SC medium and hard level questions. After talking to the native speakers in my regular GMAT classrooms, I noticed that these rules were not part of their academics too. It is strange. Of Course, being non-native speakers, we curse for not being native. Let us believe that knowing the core concepts of sentence correction can pump up your score. Let us know those 2 Rules to improve on GMAT sc.
Rule 1: Logic (GMAT Sentence Correction-2 Rules to improve)
Sentence correction questions typically focus on the rules of grammar and logic. We might not be using the rules of logic in the language application. Non-native speakers face this particular problem to answer the question. Aristotle does not believe that the purpose of logic is to prove that human beings can know. He dismisses excessive skepticism. Logic aims to elaborate a coherent system that allows us to investigate, classify, and evaluate reasoning(Source Wiki). If the purpose of logic is to investigate and evaluate, then are we applying logic?

Most students focus on the grammar and ignore the meaning. Ignoring can be a poor way to solve the SC questions. Grammar can only be of help to solve a 500 level question. To improve your score from 500 to 700+, you must work on the meaning, diction, and logic of the sentence structures. There are ample ways to write a sentence, but there are only five options available, out of which one choice is the best. We can’t argue beyond the scope possibilities. Not knowing the rules of the GMAT is a big concern…
Rule 2: Grammar (GMAT Sentence Correction-2 Rules to improve)
After teaching the native speakers from the USA and the UK, I realized that working professionals strategize and prep intelligently. Commonly, every student forgets the basic rules. I have noticed that once the rules are taught, Native speakers are smart at application. Their (native speakers) forte is the application, which helped most of my students get 41+ on the Verbal. On the other hand, the problem with non-native speakers is that they have different working environments.
Listening to different speakers and their colloquial expressions had troubled a lot of non-native speakers in my classrooms. For instance, the rule of the subjunctive case. Ignoring the modal verbs and the usage of the base verb was kind of strange. It is just one instance out of many rules. The art of relearning becomes the challenge. Trusting the mentors who train you on the SC concepts of grammar is very important. I would encourage you to have the right mentor for your GMAT preparation. Our mentors are test experts and have great exposure to the test.
In conclusion, I would like to emphasize that these two rules can strongly influence your performance. So if you are aiming at 700+, then you must develop concepts and logic. There are limited grammatical concepts that are tested, and be wise to know their application. I would strongly recommend you to reach us and know more about the GMAT preparation.
