Disappointing GMAT Test (Q44, V 33) [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2009, 11:36
Will be short in describing what happened, and what I am going to do.

I am already at MBA program, but need GMAT to get into PhD.
I am shooting to get above 700 in order to be able to get into decent PhD program in the US.

As today, I was going to Test Centre, I knew that I am not going to score more than 700. But I was expecting to get something between 650 and 700.
My score 610, really disappointed me.
But I am not giving up. I will study even harder, and I am sure that I can do much better, and even get the desired score.
Quantitive.
It was not hard, but I think, I was quite inexperienced in doing these problems. Be other situation, and no time limit, I would easily solve most of the problems with no effort. But under strict time managment, I think, I screwed up.
Because, I was getting easy questions, I thought that I was doing bad, and had a bad feeling :)
Verbal.
Was harder for me, even the math. Although, English is my second lanuage, I thought and I expected that I will do much better in Verbal rather than Math. But, I again screwed up. I had three pretty hard and boring passaged, and very strangely formulated critical reasoning questions, which I barely understood. Grammar part was not that hard.
AWA
Was not that bad, and I think I managed to get something above 5.0, which is enough for me.
I am thingking to take the test again in winter. But this time, I need to really study hard, and shoot for above 700.

So far had access just for one GMATclub test, I think I need to do all the problems,,,
Please, need, help and suggestions.

You have pretty good scores.
You are not far.

Look, if you have +3 in both, you will maybe get a 680.
You will jump from 71th percentile to 88th.
Find out where are your specific weak points (such as idioms or number properties) and work out, man!

Feel the burn
:-D

I think,
My weak points were my unattentiveness to the RC questions.
I have had overall 4 texts, 2 of them were very boring, and ONE very boring, plus very hard to understand.
Although, I live in the US for more than 3 years, and I graduated from western university, I still found it hard to understand.
I screwed up them I think.
In Math it seems likely, I got wrong several questions at the beginning, even though they were not hard. Thus after that, many questions, I got were pretty basic. Because, I was not getting any 700+ hard problems, I was quite sure, that I am not doing good at Math section.
But, I will retake it and hopefully, break that 700 barrier next time :)
Thanks for support.
