GMAT Score Extremely lower than CATs-- Please HELP [#permalink] New post 06 Dec 2012, 16:01
Hi everyone,

I took the actual test yesterday and since then i'm trying to understand what happened but i really couldn't. I scored unexpectedly lower that all my cats including the Diagnostic. I heard from friends and read that Kaplan Cats are actually harder and i should expect to score higher. I went to the test and i wasn't stressed at all, i was relaxed and confident even while doing the test. I finished almost in time (i selected the answer for the last question but didnt have the time it next). Not only that but i was expected to see 650+ as a score but i got shocked with a 520 :(((((((((. I'm very disappointed and i dont know what i should do next.

In my preparation i used Manhattan and Kaplan. I spent June & July studying Manhattan, then I paused for two months, started again in Oct. In Nov i took two weeks intensive course by Kaplan.


I'll share my story and i would appreciate your feedback/suggestion. Please i want your honest opinion. You don't have to say something to make me feel good, i just want to know what i did wrong.


My Cat Scores are as follows:
Date Quant Verbal Total
09/11/2012 MGMAT CAT1 34 35% 31 59% 540 44%
10/10/2012 MGMAT CAT2 42 57% 32 62% 600 62%
11/06/2012 Kapan CAT1 51% 36% 550
11/09/2012 Kapan CAT2 40% 64% 570
11/14/2012 Kapan CAT3 59% 53% 600
12/01/2012 Kapan CAT4 70% 35% 590
12/03/2012 Kapan CAT5 82% 63% 620

My actual GMAT was 520 (38%), Q(41)54% V(21)24%

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read my post and i look forward to get your feedback.
