Hi. Please evaluate my profile.
GMAT: This is one of the toughest part to explain. I have given 3 attempts.
1st: 550 Q39 V26 IR 0 AWA 5
2nd: 530 Q48 V16 IR 0 AWA 5
3rd: 570 Q44 V25 IR 2 AWA (yet to be received)
So basically I have studied a lot for GMAT but I have not been able to perform well on the verbal section because of reasons that were out of my control. I never scored below 630 on practice tests, but with the exam anxiety I am unable to survive by the time verbal section comes. Anyways, I wont be giving another attempt now. I will try for colleges with this score.
