Just took GMAT and the proctor ruined my quant. [#permalink] New post 07 Jun 2014, 18:30
Seeking advice...

Just took the GMAT (2nd time). Long story short, the proctor randomly accused me of leaving the building after my 8 minute break right after IR. We had a back and forth for a bit and when I went back to the exam, was shocked to see that I was 2 minutes behind schedule. I started off Quant extremely flustered and rushed, and it took me a quite some time to get back on exam mode. In the end, I ended up scoring a 37! (42 percentile). Verbal was 37 (82%) Total: 620. I was absolutely shocked, because I have NEVER scored below a 40 in all my practice tests, and I haven't take at least 15 ranging from GMATPrep, MGMAT, Kaplan...etc I am usually around the 45ish range for quant.

I am certain that proctor ruined my quant score and am wondering if I can have GMAC write a letter about this in my applications. Does anyone have any advice? Is this something I can put down on my supplemental section? Would this have any impact? I did talk with the other proctors and they suggested I give a call to GMAC and they said they documented this incident.

I guess another question I have is whether doing poorly on the first couple of questions on quant could have caused such as a gargantuan drop? All I remember is that I was extremely flustered for the first 6-7 questions and then got back on track later.
