An important phase in a student’s journey to GMAT is when he is done with most of the studying and begins taking GMAT practice tests or mocks. It is an exciting time in prep as it is through mocks that they see the results of all the hard work they had been putting in since months. While it gives you a good measure of your readiness for the computer adaptive test, it is not the only purpose of taking a mock.

The Role GMAT Practice Tests Play in Your Prep Journey

Mock tests play a much bigger role in your overall GMAT prep. Although you may not reach your target score in your very first mock and in fact score a lot lower, it is a good stage to evaluate your results. Unless you believe you have already given your 100%, the best thing to do is to not get disheartened by your scores in GMAT practice tests. Instead, you must dig deeper into your performance, identify your weaknesses, and work on them before taking another mock. Thus, improving your score. But there’s a catch – Knowing how to analyze your performance in mocks is also important.

Most students do not know how to analyze their mocks. They simply believe that practicing more 700-level questions is all that it takes to break the 700-barrier. For instance, if a student has faltered in SC module, the immediate reaction of the student is to practice more SC questions. But, in most cases, it goes in vain.

The Real Benefit of Taking a GMAT Practice Test/Mock

The main benefit of taking a GMAT practice test comes from identifying what you are struggling with – whether it is concepts or their correct application? Once you know your weakness, your next step in the process can be easily defined. But analyzing the mock can be a tedious task. Since GMAT is an adaptive test with many sections and sub-sections, it can be quite frustrating and time consuming to analyze your mocks in detail.

The Wonder of Whiz Mocks

GMAT mock improvement

We, at GMATWhiz, understand the struggle students face while analyzing mocks. To help simplify the process for you, we decided to make the process completely AI-driven. With Whiz-mocks, your mock analysis is automatically taken care of by the AI, and the result and performance-based feedback are given to you right away. And we do not stop at feedback alone. The AI analyses your weaknesses based on the answers you got wrong in the practice test to provide you with instant improvement modules so that you can work on your weak areas then and there. Isn’t that interesting?

On what basis does the AI analyze the mocks

GMAT Mock analysis

If you think GMAT calculates your scores solely based on the questions you answered correctly, you have it all wrong. The GMAT algorithm is a lot more complex than simply scoring your answers. Instead, it takes multiple parameters into consideration to calculate your overall score. With Whiz Mocks, we ensure that we consider multiple parameters like time taken, difficulty level of questions, and number of questions attempted so that you get a clear picture of your performance, and do not miss out on any of your weak areas.

But is the analysis alone sufficient?

Just having performance data is not enough. What you make out of that data is what determines your result. As discussed earlier, most students are unsure how to proceed with their scores in their GMAT practice tests and how to work on their weak areas. As a result, they end up spending months of time practicing only questions. But when they take a mock again, they see that the score hasn’t improved much.

With Whiz Mocks, you get detailed feedback based on your performance. Along with that, we provide you with a personalized plan of action based on your performance in mocks and help you proceed further by telling you which topics to work on and how.

For example, if the Whiz identified that your accuracy in Prime numbers is below 50%, the feedback tells you that you are having some conceptual gaps in Prime Numbers and prompts you to revisit the relevant concept videos of that topic from the course. This way, you do not have to put any additional effort in building your action plan to work on your weak areas. You just follow what is suggested by the Whiz.

What else does the Whiz mocks provide?

With Whiz mocks, you get not only personalized feedback but also a lot more insights such as:

Once you get personalized feedback, it is important to prioritize the topics. That is, starting from the weakest topic since it requires a lot more attention. So, the Whiz mocks give you the order in which you need to improve, so that you can focus on the weakest topics first. Thus making the process a lot more effective.

Gradual and Realistic improvement:

GMAT guidance


When you climb the ladder, you take one step at a time or max two steps. It is a gradual process without any shortcuts. The same thing goes with the GMAT as well. You cannot directly jump from low 600’s to high 700’s. The improvement must be gradual, and the process takes time. Whiz Mocks provide you with a step-by-step process by telling you what needs to be done in order to reach your next realistic target score.

Slice and Dice data:

The Whiz mocks already provide you with enough data to understand how to proceed further. But, if you still wish to explore more, you can always use the filters to analyze the sub-sections.
