Hi,

I gave my GMAT yesterday. Took a whole day to get off the upset. I scored pathetically. Its not that the GMAT was difficult, but I could not cope it up. I could not face myself in the mirror after looking at the score. Almost felt like crying.. Right now, absolutely dejected.. But I will introspect for next few days on what went wrong. I will prepare my strategy accordingly.

Looking forward for your support guys ..

Tough break buddy.

Sulk for a couple more days, then put your helmet back on and prepare yourself for battle.

Hey man don't be so dissapointed)
Its just one of the attempts)
Take a good rest and have fun its New Year man!
You ' ll do it.
Math score is ok. Pay attention to verbal prep, but don'y forget polishing your quant.
The best way to improve verbal is practice.
Cheer up

Don't lose heart. It's a good strategy to take a break and recoup yourself. Then look back to see what aspects you didn't do as well as you should. Keep working hard. You'll succeed.

hi,
thanks everyone..
What is more painful is my scores since these are the lowest I ever scored even comparing with my practise tests.
I never scored below 35 in verbal while practising.
This leads me to think that my practise was not upto the mark. I fell short of 10mins in Quant and about 5 mins in verbal coz of which I had to hurry up last few questions.

The test was very good. The ambieance at the test center was also very peaceful and calm. I was in optimum health. Everything went well for me.. except the test !!
The test was exactly the same as the GMATPrep.. I even found 2 famailiar questions in verbal.. Surprisingly I got 10mins break after completing AQA and Quant section.. Has the rules changed ..??

Can anyone please tell me good prep material for exhaustive practise. I have finished OG, Princeton and Kaplan..

Thanks once again ... I will face GMAT again...

Amit ..

Try it again. Some of us will get nervous for sure, so it probably affected your performance, especially verbal.
Practice questions again and get rid of the nervousness, then you'll score much better. :)
