Could someone let me know if Kaptest score is accurate [#permalink] New post 05 Apr 2010, 23:41
Experts,

I had taken Kaplan full length test(Free version) today.. I landed up with a very low score of 600(q38 and v36) :( .. But when I attempted MGMAT 3 days ago i had a pretty decent score of 680(admittedly test was taken in a party mood, Was left with 17 mins after my verbal section).

I wonder how my quant skills drained away within 2 days, as i was scoring constantly over 45 in GMATPREP and MGMAT.

Could someone suggest me whether it is advisable to postpone my test as I am already nearing my test date(19 apr) and I cannot afford to get a score less than 700.

hoping a early reply

Regards
navin

I found Kaplan test difficult as compared to actual test, specially the RCs were very difficult. But anyway, its good for practice and the report it generates is really good.

For a real estimate of your scores, you can try attempting GMATPrep tests, which are similar to actual GMAT test.

Thank you for your prompt response.. has scored a 680 on GMAT PREP 2 about 2 months back before practicing real verbal ones.

Quant score is the one that is really demeaning, bcoz the questions were not so tough but the results made me weep like a child :help2 .

Please advise

Sorry Bro, i wonder how I missed your below post.

As u said the analysis is really good, I was startled to find the number of silly mistakes I did.

"Hi Madie,
Trust me, you are already very close to your target score :). Kaplan CAT tests are diificult compared to actual gmat tests. In my first Kaplan test I scored 580 and the last I scored 620, but in actual GMAT after 1 month it was 730.

I would recommend you to attempt GMAT Prep tests. This test will tell you where exactly do you stand. Reset your GMAT prep tests and attempt it again and again. I have attempted each GMATPrep tests three times (effectively 6 tests). They have a huge database of questions and you'll hardly see any repeated questions.

all the best.
