Back to the drawing board with a 650 :( [#permalink] New post 30 Aug 2014, 08:26
Ok ... So I just took my test today and scored a 650 ( Q44/V35).

Needless to say I am very disappointed...In the run up to my official test I scored the following:

Q/V

MGMAT 45/36 - 670
MGMAT 45/36 - 670
GMAT Prep 1 48/38 700 :-D
GMAT Prep 2 49/35 690 :) The weekend before my test.
GMAT Prep 3 44/33 640 :shock: :?: :? ( This was 2 days prior to my test...kinda shook me up )

Its quite a known fact that MGMAT Quant is a lot harder ... so I was super happy with my GMAT Prep 1 & 2 scores.
Prep 3 was a real shock.... I was hoping it was an aberration. :oops:

So looks like i ll have to apply for R2.

Retake Plan

With my present quant scores, I think my concepts/knowledge bit is almost there but I need to get some consistency in place.

Here's what I plan to do over the next 45 days.

Quant:
Plan: Use Topic wise Grockit Daily & Solve GMAT Club Quant Tests.
Review my weaker areas.

I seem to have plateaued at a 35/36. I ve used e-gmat, but I cant seem to get to a 38 or 40.
I am fairly comfortable with CR, however I ve not been able to get consistency for SC & RC.

So... Is my plan sound??

Is it realistic to expect to go from a 650 to at least 690 in 45 days??

Thank You

Did you feel the quant was harder on the real test?

Not Really I would nt say the Quant was difficult... But I guess I screwed up early in the test.

Dear Ubus,

Your plan is absolutely achievable. The key is to understand the areas that you need to focus on. If I were you I would:

Quant: List down the top three areas where I would need to improve on. Work on the top two and then take a mock test.
Verbal: Focus on approach. Why are SC and RC pulling you back? Are you weak in certain types of questions or do you need to work on your approach in general.

Again - rather than one big jump from 35 to 40, focus on two jumps of three points each.

-Rajat
