I gave my GMAT exam today and i got a score of 560. I scored 49 in quants and just 18 in verbal,and now I am sure that it was the worst day of my life. I would like to request you guys to suggest me what should be done. Honestly, I was not expecting 18 in my verbal section. While preparing for my exam, I gave 3 practice tests and scored 28 in two and 29 in the last test in verbal. I am not sure about what type of colleges I should apply for. I am definitely considering to re-write the exam. When I started preparing for the paper I gave today, I was always aiming for a high score, around 700. I used to get scores like 630, 640. I never gave so much of effort to practice to reach my target. Please suggest me what should be done now. Can I still apply for the best colleges or will it be a waste of time and money?

49 in quant is amazing dude. .

u gotto work on verbal.. guess e-gmat can help. .

btw.

How was IR in comparison to the one in Manhattan CATs?

I find IR very time consuming on Manhattan CATs and I have never been able to complete the section in these tests. Couldn't go beyond the score of 1.7 so far..

Is IR really tough on teh gmat or is it manageable?

The IR was comparatively easy. I do not have idea about the Manhattan CATs as I just gave the first one( the free one) so would compare the GMAT IR with it. The Manhattan IR questions are more time taking as you get different data for all the questions. The actual GMAT exam has 2 or 3 questions with the same table or chart. only 1 or 2 questions were there who were independent. I decided that I will only target for 10 questions in this section so that I could give more to the questions I attempt.

Honestly, i did not prepare much for the GMAT. For quants, I just went through the formulae and about 50 questions in total. Did a lot more in verbal. but I will not give up. I will bounce back
