GMAT score of 450(Q35,V18) [#permalink] New post 16 Jul 2012, 03:33
I attempted GMAT today and completely devastated based on the score.

Well, this may sound like a excuse but I couldn't able to prepare for GMAT for the last 3 months because of bad medical illness and was on bed rest. And unfortunately i completely missed to reschedule my exam also.

To achieve, that score, I didn't prepare at all and hadn't attempted even a single mock-GMAT test. What I want to know in this forum whether I should give a more try or not. Because I read one of the article which mentions that usually re-attempt doesn't increase score much and the first score is picture of aptitude( I know, I am bad based on score).

what I am wondering that when i haven't given any real push for preparation and without any mock drill, I just landed up in exam room and achieved the score, does the current score gives any ray of hope...

Looking for real inputs ( ready to hear negative views also)

Thanks n advance for inputs...

If it were not possible to increase one's score, there would have been no "test prep" companies. If you work at it, you can obviously improve your score . Going from 450 to 600 is easy (relatively speaking). Your basics are not in place or you have forgotten what you learned in high school. I would suggest you to join a course (in-class preferably). That itself will make a big difference. Also, every hour of self study you do at home will add points. There will be many things you will learn about GMAT and next time, you will be prepared for the test.
