People write about their stories how they scored 700s, 750s and even more than that. I simply salute them and their intelligence, absolutely no Hard feelings except a little jealousy
But today I will narrate a story of a person who hasn't been able to achieve much in his life, isn't because he is lazy or he didn't aspire to achieve the best. He wasn't the favorite son of luck, in fact he is the least preferred one. But luck and his relation with her is a different story, so I should come back to his GMAT story.
He is a very good employee, but in past something happened that triggered the spark and lit a fire in him to prepare for GMAT. It was the most daring thing that a person could do in this world. He challenged his manger's management capabilities who in return just said " Do you hold MBA?". That's was it, the HE turned to I.
I made up my mind that I will do an MBA from world's best. But before that I had a mountain named GMAT to climb. So I decided to take on it, as every smart guy these days do, I went to God Google. The divine then showed me more than 10000000 ways. But all the ways had one signpost in common and a Diagnostic Test and OG. So I put my gears on on and get ready to climb the mountain.
Very confident about my abilities and intelligence, I bought OG13. The next logical step I took,booked an appointment for GMAT some 2 months ahead. But the story turned upside down when I took the Diagnostic test. I finished the test with all the hair on my body raised. The screen showed a not so pleasant three digit number 460
I could get that I was seriously mistaken about the exam. I rocked back to preparation, went through all the study material that was suggested by various high scorers. Did almost everything to score high. So 15 days before my GMAT appointment date, I took Manhattan GMAT
test. But I could only score 620. I was happy that I have improved, but was sad that I couldn't get a single hard question right. But from where should I get these so called hard questions?
I again went to God Google, and this time I was shown a divine way,GMAT CLUB. I came across toughest of the questions in GMAT world. They just ripped apart my preparation, but I brushed up my basics quickly again and put myself in the fire of these questions. I again took a GMAT simulation Exam, I scored 650. Not bad!!!
I kept solving these tough questions and kept taking Mock Exams, but the score would not improve.Then came the D-day, So I though to myself that 650 is the best I can get. I even chose schools which had their Average scores near 650.
The real test started with Quantitative section, But I applied myself and kept solving with my best efforts and same continued with verbal. Then one thing happened, I was about to click confirm for the last question when a time out message popped out. I kept on clicking Nexts, and finally my score appeared on the screen. A mixed feeling all together, 690
I am happy that I scored better, but I am not sure how to react that I missed 700. Whether happy or Sad, I have to accept my 690, this is MY score. But I am not a thankless guy. So at the end of this long post I want to apologize to this forum that I have never contributed to it, but more than that I will like to thank this forum for all the resources that I stole from here.
But the story hasn't ended here as yet!!! None of the so called MBA admission consultant are ready to help him in his application process, they find my story very challenging
.. MBAs from Top schools and not willing to up a challenging thing
