DEVASTATED -450(32Q,20V) ...Suggestions for Improvement? [#permalink] New post 31 Oct 2012, 04:45
Hi All ,I am shocked by the GMAT score. I don't understand what happened on the test.I never scored below 590 on any
of the practice tests I took.

MGMAT 1: 590(Q41,V31)
MGMAT 2: 620(Q43,V33)
MGMAT 3: 640(Q45,V33)
MGMAT 4: 620(Q44,V32)
MGMAT 5: 610(Q44,V30)
MGMAT 6: 650(Q44,V35)
GMAT Prep 1:620(Q43,V33)
GMAT Prep 2:680(Q48,V35)

Materials Used :
OG13
CR - Power Score
SC- Aristotle
RC - RC 99
Quant - Total GMAT Math ,Challenge Sets

I was targeting a score in the range of 650 -680 but my dreams are shattered now.

I am frustated ..had been studying for 3 months. Plan to write again after a month.My last bet ,I want to apply for fall next year.
Willing to sign up for any program to improve my score.

Thank You

I'm sorry :(

you are not the last one who report such discrepancy with the real test

Looking at your preparation the material is ok aside RC 99 that is not good at all.

Your weak as I can see is verbal for sure because even if quant is good verbal matters most.

With quant percentile and a better verbal percentile you can achive your goal or even more. ;)

Keep your head up. I understand that this must be unbelievably frustrating, but this is only a minor setback. All of the practice tests that you took are good tests and are indicators of your real potential. The only thing to do is study a bit more and retake the GMAT.

Don't let it get to you and don't be discouraged. You have to look at this as an inconvenience and press forward. As the stated in the above post, you aren't the only person who has dealt with this.

Also, just out of curiosity, what happened? Was it stress?

Thanks :-) That helped ..

I was not stressed at all. Reached the test centre on time ....AWA & IR went quite well . After that I took a break ..
I was confident that I will do well in Quant & Verbal. I had enough time to finish Quant & Verbal sections
Have never been weak in tests,scored 85 percentile in CAT(Indian MBA entrance exam) last year ..

I had hoped that to crack GMAT as well ... :(

It happened to me too, man. The same exact feeling of being relaxed and confident and... 490 after averaging 650 on practice tests.

That happens on the Gmat, and the only way to learn from this is to take some time off and then give it another try. You can do it without any shadow of a doubt; keep it up!
