Please suggest if i need to postpone my exam. [#permalink] New post 15 Dec 2011, 05:50
Hi,

I am left with 10 more days before the exam. This would be my second attempt on the GMAT.

In the first attempt i scored just 600 [Math 47, Verbal 28]. I took this attempt in Aug 2011. I realized that my mistake here was not giving any of the Mock exams to analyze my strengths and weaknesses.

Now with 10 days left, i started giving my mocks, but i ended up scoring 580 :( (Took the MGMAT CAT 1)

:( Right now i am a bit devastated. I have focussed more on my english during this time and am able to do CR, SC and RC with precision during my practice. But now seems when the test is timed, i am spending more time than permissible.

I am a bit worried :( please suggest me if i should go ahead with the exam or reschedule it?

Or would it be better to give the exam and then see what has to be done?

Also my query is that when can we say it is right time to start taking CAT mocks? like a month before exam etc;

Regards,
MS

Take one more practice test. If you are getting less than you are looking for, then postpone.

If your're goal is something in the 700 range, then it's probably the right choice to postpone. If you're target score hovers around 650, however, then I would suggest another practice test (under realistic test conditions, of course) to have a better idea of where you stand. Base your decision on those results.

Hi All,

Thank you for the replies.

bb - Please help me chalk my study plan.

I am aiming at 700+ score. I know i can make it but i am not sure how to go about the preparation. The last time i have given the GMAT i have identified that Verbal was not up to the mark. I have given time of one month now for english and tried to improve in CR, SC and RC. But still struggling on RC :( I am a working professional and spend about 12 hours at work and then plan my studies.
Is there anything i can do to improve my accuracy and speed aswell. I am looking at following a systematic plan. (like more practice with timed exams etc;). How to schedule the mock CAT exams.

Analysis of mock GMAT:
Geometry (Weak Area)
Numbers (Weak Area)

CR : Assumption and Inference (Weak Area)
RC : Main point/Area (The main problem here is i am unable to comprehend the passage in one reading)
SC: I am unable to understand how to attack a question as soon as i see it. Personally i feel SC is the scoring area, since we are already equipped with the rules, we could apply them easily. Could you please suggest some way to make this section more accurate under controlled time.

Please let me know if the analysis is ok or i need to be more specific.

TIA,
MS
