Failure in first attempt. Devastated but i won't give up [#permalink] New post 23 Apr 2014, 06:50
I just came from gmat exam. When i saw my score 590(Q46, V25) on the screen, I felt so depressed. Actually it is hard to keep calm. I don't know what i am going to do about it. I studied 1,5 months and clearly it is not enough for me. I am not native speaker so my verbal was between 23-34 in mock tests so i expected this score. Whereas my quant score was never below 48 in any mock tests. Therefore, i would not expect this score. Anyway, Am I dissapointed? :cry: YES of course.

BUT, I am not giving up. I will schedule my exam on early June. At this point, i need your advice. My dream score is between 650 and 700 (because of my limited time). SC and RC are my weakest point. What can i do about it?

You may want to try an online course. Some don't take a lots of time e.g. e-gmat - their course is especially designed for non-native speakers

Hi Dece

Sorry to hear about your test experience mate, but the important thing is that you are still willing to fight. try e-gmat courses. I used their course for my preparation and was well worth the price.

Another very important tip that I can give you is that do not rush into your second attempt. take your time, prepare and then kill it once and for all. When one month is left, only verbal resources you should be using is the official guides and any other official question that you can get your hands on. Try searching Souvik's thread on all questions official. This will help you develop the gmat-ear because unlike quant , its very diff to replicate verbal questions.

All the best for your gmat.

cheers

thank you for advices. I will definitely listen your advice and give a chance to e-gmat. I belive that if i manage my stress and focus on verbal, I could see a good score on the screen. I am open to any advice, which improve my score in limited time.
Appreciate it

Why is June an idle time with your limited time? No schools will be admitting so early?!

I'm also a non-native English speaker. You can do couple of things to improve your spoken English, by reading a good website (especially those listed in this site like Natgeo). Just try to read one article everyday and that's what I have been doing. Buy the entire MGMAT set. Go through Ron's videos, its totally free. These videos are long and lengthy, if you have time, its worth the advice and tips that Ron gives.

Its been one month since I have started my GMAT prep. So far I have been following the above to improve my verbal. Start with MGMAT foundations for verbal. I strongly recommend you to start from basics if you are not confident. I recommend you to focus on SC, CR and then RC. That's the way I'm training myself. I took about 3 weeks for SC alone. Try to make some cheat sheets for Idioms, grammar rules, so that it might help you to squeeze some time for SC.

Good luck and keep up your faith.

Hi, if I'm going to get EGmat, would you recommend to get live prep or the one with videos. Any advice here would be great. Thanks in advance.

Begin reading Economist ASAP!!! It really helps. Proven by me. Moreover, you not know make your English better ,but also learn a lot about things that happen in the world! It is worth it. :)

PS -never give up! 8-)
