MGMAT scores second time around [#permalink] New post 15 Feb 2011, 10:59
I just took the MGMAT test 1 after i reset the question bank.

I have already given my gmat once in april of 2010- scored a 660. I had taken all 6 tests from Dec of 2009 to April 2010. Those scores always averaged between 650- 700 with the average being around 660.

Yesterday, after almost a year i gave the gmat test again (i used a new code to register). I didnt remember any of the questions from the previous attempt - hence i dont think i was in any advantage but i scored a 750. My quant went pretty bad - i scored a 48 (87 percentile) and verbal was much improved -44 (98 percentile)

I was pleasantly surprised as this was the first exam this time around. I spent a lot of time looking improving verbal but my quant prep was the same with the only change - i paid more attention to the first 10 questions.

Now, before i feel good about myself and the score i want to know if any other factor could have caused my score to be higher

- Such as, More unused 700-800 Questions in the gmat bank , hence more of them showing up on my exam?

Any thing else that you can think of. It will be especially helpful if you have also made a second attempt in MGMAT after resetting the question bank. Please let me know if i can pat myself on the bank or just attribute this to the second attempt.

Of course i have a long way to go and i dont want to lose focus!

First off all congratulations :)
I know it's not easy to get a 750 on MGMAT [I haven't been able to pull it off yet!]

However, since you want to be absolutely sure that your score is a true reflection of the improvement you've made, I'd say - take two more Manhattan CATs and see if the score stays within acceptable limits.

Well- i sincerely hope it eventually translates to a 80% + in quant and verbal. Test 2 and test 3 are coming up over the long weekend. I want to brush up the weak areas in the mean time- namely RC in verbal and some topics in quant.

Also, i did not write the AWA in the first test, i may incorporate it in the 3rd test and onwards. I hope i wasnt too fresh because of this! i scored a 6 the previous time.

Keeping my fingers crossed. I know many folks have redone their gmat, im eagerly waiting to hear from them about the retake!
