Hello,

I'm new to forum and sure this point must've got discussed elsewhere but couldn't locate the exact thread despite spending lot of time.

My DD is appearing for HBS stage 1 coming Sep 4, can I please get advise on what percentage score she should be targeting in CGP practice CEM papers at this time?

Thanking you in advance

There are 300 spaces in the second round .

The scores are recorded to two decimal points.

The numbers sitting are likely to be over two thousand as over two thousand sat last year and the numbers have not yet gone down.

Students do not do as well in the exam environment as in the home environment.

Scores in the 80% would be a realistic target. DG

DG


And try to recreate an exam like environment when testing so your DD gets used to time management etc.

Thank you for your response.

Quickly checking on VR pattern - Does HBS keep typical VR in stage 1 or its not there in the test just like NVR?
I understand though that English part will contain comprehension, vocabulary, shuffled sentences etc

HBS use English CEM the same as the DAO/SW Herts paper. They do not use VR. They also use Numerical Reasoning, they do not use NVR.

For the first four years there was no comprehension, but there has been for the last two years. I would expect Shuffled Sentences, Missing Letter Cloze and Word Bank Cloze. These are the hardest three of the CEM sections. There will be others but these three are the most likely. DG
