I am taking the GMAT again in 10 days after managing only a 620 the first time a month ago which was a disappointment.
I have taken one MGMAT CAT4 two days ago, in which I scored 730 (V:43 96%, Q:47, 73%) .
Today I went to the Pearson to take the Kaplan
CAT 9 under real "test condition" and Scored 680 (Q:50 92%, V:34 69%).
Now can anyone explain how this is possible? Why is there such a big difference between the verbal and quant in each test? especially when the tests are only 2 days apart. I couldn't have improved in quant and then suddenly fall on the verbal section.
From my own experience I believe Kaplan
has not made a good job in replicating the Verbal Questions, especially with CR. The questions are ambiguous whereas in the actual GMAT, GMAT Prep and MGMAT there is much less ambiguity.
On the other hand the scoring system seems to be very different between MGMAT and Kaplan
I have 10 days till my exam and wanted to know your comments on how I should proceed.
Please tell me if you have ever experienced anything similar
In my own opinion MGMAT CAT's Verbal are a much better representative of the actual GMAT. As for quant I believe the difficulty isn't that different between MGMAT and Kaplan
, I believe its mostly the scoring system....
