Hi,

Just gave my Gmat for first time today and scored a miserable 590 (Q49 and V22). Have'nt scored so low on verbal in any of my practice tests.
Today AWA section was breeze. Qauant was also OK. Guess lost my concentration half way thorugh the verbal section. But overall did not feel that verbal section was so bad..was probably cuaght by all possible GMAT tricks..
Took a few prep tests during the course of my studies and consisitently scored above 600. Gave 4 Gmat Prep tests in total. Two repeats on each one of them. The break up is as follows.
Gmat Prep I 710(Q 49 , V 38)
Gmat Prep I 740 (retake with few repeats)
Gmat Prep II 670 (Q 49, V32)
Gmat Prep II 760 (few repeats in quant)

Now I am in complete dilema on how to proceed foward. Please advice on how to proceed ahead!!

Already nice that u do not give up !

Yes... Half of verbal is a cap to cross. It happened to me as well.

I have few questions:
> Did u achieve to have a full night before? to be rested?
> Did u eat something during breaks?

Regarding your prep scores and the way u participate on GMATClub, I do not think that this score reflects your current capability.

In my view, a huge part seems to come from this half of verbal part.

Others will probably complete me

So, yes... It seems the logical explanation of your unsuccess first step.

I suggest u to reschudle in one month. I think u are ready, but your nervse played against u...

As this first attempt is done, u know excatly how is it. I'm sure that u will transform this experience to concrete results. Just pursue to study, maintain and even go deeper on some aspects if u dare so.

U probably felt unconfortable on 1 or 2 questions. Build up your confidence arround it by going on fondamentals linked to them.

> Have u already tried some medecine to make u sleep?
I did so for the GMAT... With an habit to go to bed at 1:30am, I had no choices. I regret nothing.... It worked I will have a look on the medecine's name and I will send u a PM about it

> Have u always practiced your test with AWA section included?

Hi,

Guys how much time do you think is necessary to improve my current score and reach a score of 700+. Would two months be sufficient?

Very difficult to say... It actually may be that you are already able to hit 700, just have to work with your nerves a bit. I would say that you should schedule when your confidence says so.... Sometimes the confidence during the test is the sole factor for a good score...

Yogesh: Timeframes are tough to say but try to practise as many as possible. But get your basics woked out soon in the areas of improvement.

Your Quant score is very good!!! So cheerup and start working and you can do it !!

Look at your GMAT Prep scores, you're all ready in the 700 club. I would call your actual GMAT score an outlier.

I think if you just relax on the day of the exam you'll be fine. So between now and then just take lots of practice tests and get comfortable with the time. Your quant score is excellent, and you obviously have the potential to do great on verbal.
