I gave my GMAT on Sept 23rd and got a mere 550 (Q47, V20) and a 6.0 in AWA. While my quant score is around my expected range, my verbal score was way less than what I used to get in the practice tests. I wrote all the free tests available and bought the MGMAT tests and finished 6 of them too. 550 was the score I got when I wrote the first practice test. By the end of my prep I had been getting 640 consistently on GMATprep and MGMAT too. My highest score on MGMAT was 680. In all the GMATprep tests my quant was in the 47-49 range and verbal was around 30
. In the MGMAT tests, my quant was 43-44 consistently and verbal was 33-35 consistently.
20 in the verbal is the 20% percentile and I believe I do not fall in that range. I was expecting atleast 30 verbal in the real exam. I believe I screwed up in the SC portion as it has been my strong point during my preparation. CR was natural to me and I am worst at RC's. Most of the time more than 50% of my RC responses were wrong. Also, the MGMAT verbal is little different from the real test. I felt that in the MGMAT verbal, the SC errors were quite obvious unlike the GMAT exam verbal in which the errors are not obvious. I was wondering whether my goal of reaching 35 in Verbal in a month's preparation is realistic?
I want to see a score of more than 650 in the real GMAT. Any suggestions are appreciated.
