700 (Q-50, V-35) [#permalink] New post 29 Jun 2003, 21:40
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

that long is my sigh of relief on completing this STUPID exam.......


sssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitttttttttttttttttttt.........

that is my reaction for screwing up on verbal.........

anyway I cannot ask for more.....I was not concentrating properly on the verbal part......and maths has always been my forte......so overall I am not complaining.....more so because I don't want to take a second try......I am through with this........

now for the experience.......

AWA was not much of a problem......

Maths was average difficulty.........if a person is getting 90% of his questions right on the OG during practice, then I am sure that he can score 50.....it was not much of a problem.....no standard deviation :lol: :lol:
two probability, one combined with geometry and the other one the straightforward committee problem
there was lots of algebra and integer type problems.....
the key thing is to RECHECK the problems and then go the next question.....although I had to guess the last three to four questions, still my score did not go down drastically.......

the verbal part :evil: :evil: :evil:

second question was RC, but I was not affected by it......as I was prepared for it......I think I got 3 RC (35- 55 lines).......
SC was similar to OG....CR was also similar to OG.......the only problem was that I was not able to concentrate..........otherwise it would not have been much of a problem...........and I would recommed future test takers to increase reading speed.....it would help a lot.....I was re-reading a lot of questions and so lost a lot of time......and in the end I had to guess quite a few questions.....as they say active reading is important.....I had one boldface CR......i think it was the second last question......

overall I think I could have scored more on the verbal if it was a practice test...but it boils down to nerves and stamina.....

my suggestions.....

1) increase reading speed for verbal, especially non-native speakers
2) for quants....practice as much as you can.....
3) take a lot of practice tests........I had taken 9 practice tests, with the following scores

PP - 770, 770 (although not representative...knew some of the questions)
Kaplan - 570, 640
Crack the Gmat (PR) - 690,670,650,650
Inside the GMAT - 780


Best of luck to all future test takers

would like to thank bb, stolyar, evensflow and all the other people who have contributed to this forum...thanks a lot........

hey bhavesh,
Congrauts for that valiant effort. You faced the verbal and did it almost successfully. :-D

Yes, i would say that you got less on verbal, since i knew you deserved more. You had a great knack of solving SCs. But 700 also not to bad. You touched 700 that's itself is a very nice thing. I am so glad at hearing this news. Wish you would have got more.

And yes i agree with you. For all guys who are non-native speakers should concentrate more on reading speed, as in verbal it does boil down to speed which eventaully leads to short of time for the last 2 to 3 questions.

My approach this time is on speed only.

Thanks bhavesh agian and WISH YOU THE VERY BEST in your application preparation. :-D

It took you only 440 messages to post :wink:

I would be quite happy with that score. In the lower tier schools you could also get some scholarship money even with that and full scholarship if you throw in your experience and such.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions and news from the frontline.

Keep on going!!!!
