GMAT Disaster 580 [#permalink] New post 10 Aug 2013, 00:52
Hello guys,

This is my first ever post in gmatclub. I should first thank gmatclub for coming up with such a wonderful forum and helping me through out my preparation. U guys are the Best !! Talking about my gmat exam that I gave yesterday, I couldn't believe what I saw on the screen when I hit report scores. It read 580 Q38 V31. I was shocked !!

My last 3 mock test scores are as follows in descending order: mgmat6-660, gmatprep2-670, mgmat5-660

I was confident going into the exam that I would surely cross 650 and I had no sign of nerves what so ever. My Essay and IR went very well. Even the timing for Quant and Verbal was spot on, only having to guess the last 2 Qs. During the exam, I didn't feel that Quant was getting out of hand at any point though some Qs here and there went wrong. I must've really screwed up the basics in the first 20 Qs. No real idea though.

Anyways, I am not disappointed by this score as I've seen much worse in life.. :-D I know I'm better than a 580 and I'll surely take the exam again.

When should I take the gmat again ? Any advice ? Is it right to take it asap or take time as an opportunity to beat my previous mock scores and set my target even higher?? Ofcourse, I shall look at the application deadlines of the schools i'm targeting.

Round 1 goes to GMAT Hoping the Round 2 to be Mine !! ;)

My experience was similar to yours. I made over a 700 on the official practice gmat tests of like a 49-50 on the quant and 40-42 on the verbal, but I made a 570 Friday, Aug 9 on the real gmat test. Q41 V 28. I was stunned. I will be taking the gmat test over again in early September.
