I wrote my GMAT today and got a dismal score of 560(Q46V21).
My question is not what guys have previously asked on this forum.
("Where do I apply with this score? --or-- Do I retake the GMAT?")
My question to you guys is, what do I do to improve my score when I will be giving the test again after a month? How do I do it? Your views?
I work for an MNC - in the computer networking industry - full time.
Had got around 680 in Veritas
, Manhattan, Princeton Review
Next GMAT date: Have not booked yet. But will give after a month when the slot opens.
Hi Harsh, two possibilities are there.
1. It was your bad day as you have been scoring near 680 (as mentioned by you). In this case, you can go for a second shot within a month time. Identify your weak areas from the sample CATs you have taken. I think verbal is the key in your case. As you have already consumed gmat prep then its better to do all the gmat prep questions again. There is a famous gmat prep SC document floating here that contains about 180 gmat prep SC questions. You can also use the tag list option in this forum to find out a big pool of tough verbal questions with detailed explanations. You can also find the paper tests & practice their verbal part. I hope with this strategy you can hit the desired score in your next attempt.
2. If the real test score represents your real abilities, then I doubt that you can recover or develop your verbal skills in a month time. In that case, my recommendation would be to take atleast 40-50 days for a retake. Several options are there, including Knewton, which provides a money back guarantee.
Any queries? Kindly let us know & keep us posted. Best of luck for the retake!
