Need Advice.. got 700 on GMAT 0% in IR [#permalink]
21 Oct 2012, 17:33
Guys, I was looking for some advice. My first attempt a couple of months ago was only 640 (Q49 V28) 5.5 AWA 7 in IR (81%) My second attempt three weeks was 700(Q48 V37) 6.0 AWA and only 1 in IR(0%)
I was running temperature and during the AWA i realised that my head was hurting a lot and I needed to pop another pill so that I dont ruin my Quant and Verbal. I rushed out of the exam room to pop the pill during my IR section but must have wasted a lot of time and could not answer all the questions. The result was me getting only a 1 in IR which translates to 0 Percentile!!!
Do you'll have any advice. Will the B schools understand that I had an issue. I did extremely well on the IR in the first attempt but due to running temperature and a headache I had to run out to take a pill to make sure it would be effective by the time I started quant. I was glad I could focus well on both quant and english but towards the end in english, I could not understand the reading comprehension passages and that resulted in a lower english score as well. I am still happy with my overall score, but I'm not sure how the IR would reflect in such a case? Does the 6.0 in AWA cover the deficiency in the IR score in any way?
I am already working on my essays and I do not have time to take the GMAT again.
