i just posted this but its not showing up, v sorry if there's a repeat:

Would anybody know how one's Manhattan Verbal corresponds to the actual GMAT? I've been getting V40-45 on the last 4 MGMAT's (increased steadily by a point each time). However, I wrote the GMAC CD official test # 2 yesterday, and got V42.

I was hoping to at least get in the 43 range on Wednseday, when I rewrite, but felt that the GMAC test was easier than the actual GMAT from what I remember.

So far, here's what I've been getting (I tried the score calculator which put me at 700, as I ranked myself "average test performance" on the last bar - I tend to get nervous on D-Day).

GMAC 1: 710 (Inflated because of OG question repeats)
Veritas (free): 680, M43, V40
MGMAT 1: 700, M44, V41
MGMAT 2: 700, M46, V40,
Princeton (free): 700, M47, V40
MGMAT 3: 740 M47, V44 (finished Manhattan SC guide for the first time)
Knewton (free): 650 (M38 V43 - very surprised by this, especially since I felt the math was simpler)
MGMAT 4: 750 (M47, V45 - repeat questions inflated both sections)
GMAC # 2: 720 (M47, V42)

I know the common logic is +/- 30 for GMAC, I'm more concerned about my V score I guess. Any body have comments on my possible Verbal range?
A.

Great job, bb; I just understood that one can score 800 even with a 48 in Q, and of course 51 in V. It's so inspirational. I was reading another post about getting 800 and Stanford story of disappointing 800ers. Maybe one day Gmaters come to this conclusion that just bombing a few questions purposefully may not be so unwise, haha, that's so stupid though.

Hi guys!
What does it mean "Performance under pressure"?
I use stopwatch and try to find the right solution as faster as I can and usually it weakens my final score because of stupid mistakes.

What "type of pressure" is it?

Thanks in advance!

You are referring to the gmat score calculator.
This is a variable that throws us off. Basically - everything that is different on the test day from what it was in your home/office/etc where you took practice tests and also your performance impact when you are taking the real test vs a practice one.

Basically if you stress out a lot and panic on the test, you should move that up quite a bit. Otherwise, just keep in the middle. If you perform better under stress, then move it left.

So I took GMAT on Sat, Oct 22 for the first time after my preparation of 4-5 weeks and I got a VERY DISAPPOINTING score of 590!!!!
Its not even closeeeee to what I want to be able to apply to the colleges of my dream.
So how should I prepare myself to take the bull by horns when I take the test next time. I am planning to take it in mid Dec now?
Please suggest me some good strategies and materials for preparation. I prepared using Manhattan GMAT 8 books and Official Guide.

hey look on the bright side.. you're above the mean score....
In case you haven't gone through the entire official guide, I suggest you do that right away and in addition to that, try out as many practice tests as u can.

Hi, I took the GMAT on 25th Oct 2011 and scored a 710, Q47 V41. I sent my scores to 5 programs on that day. I plan to retake it in a month's time and send scores to 5 different programs this time around. Will the programs I sent my scores at my first attempt receive the scores from my second attempt as well? will they have access to scores from my second attempt in any way? (Btw I know that the schools I report my scores to at my second attempt will receive scores from my first as well).

I did my Bachelors from India..I have my regular marksheets and the degree that Indian Universities issue (Kurukshetra University in particular)...Is that a valid transcript to submit to the Business Schools with the application? Or do I need to get something from the University?

Thanks for this information!!

One question: is it mandatory at the test center to send my score to a school? I still don't know where I want to go. It depends on how high I'll score :roll:

Your 1st attempt scores will be received by first 5 schools....

Your second attempt scores will be received by the other 5 schools that you selected....

In no way 1st 5 schools would ever come to know about the 2 attempt schools or vice versa...

According to GMAT website, it takes 20 calendar days for the schools to receive the score after test, does that include non-business days?

Are you talking about a GMAT Prep practice test? Any other practice test is not accurate because they cannot replicate GMAC's algorithm for computing scores accurately.

Also, I have noticed slight variations in scores with similar V-Q scores. You are correct that a Q49 V39 should get 720 (Q49 V38 - I got 710 on the actual GMAT). However, a poster recently posted as getting a 710 with a Q49 V39
first-time-710-q49-v39-summing-it-up-123669.html

It seems to indicate that there are a few other factors that go into your finals score (for instance the number of difficult questions you got wrong, or if you answered correct questions evenly in different sections vs. acing one section and bombing another etc.).
