570 in GMAT [#permalink] New post 28 Sep 2009, 03:29
I took my GMAT recently and was terrified when I saw 570(Q 44 V 25). I constantly got 650 in all the mgmat tests and constantly scored 46 in Quant and 650 in my gmat prep. I thought my score in the actual exam will also be similar to that.

Now I have no other option but to retake the exam, but the problem is that, I have exhausted all the tests I had. I have completed all the 6 mgmat cat's and now if i write that again, i would see repeated questions and my scores will be inflated and there would be no way to guage my improvement. The same is the case with Gmat prep also. I took the test 3 times and If i take it again, my scores will defenitely be infalted.

I really feel horrible now and I am not able to forgive myself for doing so badly in the test...

Experts I need some advise on how to move on from here..

Thanks.

Sorry to hear that. May be it was just a bad test experience.
If you were scoring 650+ you should be able to score that much in the actual test +- 20-30 points.
Did anything go wrong during the test?
Also check out the re-take forum. They have some good advice.

Hey Sury, seems we had the same experience today. I was getting 660 on my GMAT Prep however really flunked it today, 600... My word is, don´t let this get to you, don´t allow the test to beat you, take it as round one, if you are applying for next year, you have plenty of time to do a retake and still reach R2 deadlines. I have my mindset clear now, im attacking this exam again in 1.5-2 months, I already know why it beat me today, so I will tackle it through those areas. Go back and see which were your weak areas, I am sure this was just an "accident", try it one more time, I know I will

yeah.. I should somehow motivate myself and start studying again.
But this time the greatest problem is going to be assessing my improvement. I have taken Gmat Prep multiple times and now if i take it again my scores will be inflated. Same is the case with Mgmat also... Can some one help me in this regard...

I am also planning to apply for fall 2010. so before when should i finish retaking my gmat..

yeah i know that retaking is the best bet. But my question is that, is there any way i can judge my improvement considering the fact that i have exhausted all 6 mgmat cats and i took gmat prep multiple times.

What else can i consider as a correct indicator. Some one please help me with this.

I would look at this way. Since your earlier scores in the prep tests were not truly reflected in the actual performance, what makes you think that the "new" tests would give you a better idea.
Try to analyze your weakness and give it your best shot going forward w/o getting bogged down with your prior test results. By the way, i am pretty much in the same boat as you in terms of the score but the difference is, i hardly took any prep tests.

Sorry about the 570 - still above the average, but definitely enough for Top 20.
For your question, there are plenty of other tests: all-gmat-cat-practice-tests-links-prices-reviews-77460.html
