Hi experts,

I just gave my GMAT two days back and scored a terrible 610 (Q 44/ V29). Throughout the exam I felt I was pressed for time. My time management was so poor that I panicked and started making random guesses towards the end of the exam. I knew I would struggle with the timing as I had been on the practice tests but didnt know it would be this bad. I had been scoring in the 640 – 660 range in the MGMAT tests. I socred a 660 on GMAT PREP 1 and a 600 on GMAT PREP 2. On the actual thing I think I took a lot of time on two SC's in the beginning of the exam (I guess I was being over cautious) and a CR which really set me back.

At home I had been practicing under the clock and was doing pretty ok but I guess I panick on a timed test.

The thing is I am ready to give the GMAT another shot..because I know I can get a 700+. I wanted to ask you what change in stratergies should I adopt? I clearly have a major time management issue. My verbal scores have been inconsistent and I want to take my Quant score from 44 to 49-50 (I have been scoring 43-44 consistently in quant in all the tests).

Also since I have finished all my MGMATS and GMAT PREP, I am worried as to what mock exams should I give, because I think that although I can reset the tests, I would get repeats and I would probably get an inflated score. This would give me a false confidence which I so dont need right now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When you gave the mock tests did u frequently pause the tests and did u guess on them too or was the test day experience an isolated one??

I gave the mock tests under timed conditions and with the AWAs.Yes its true that i was guessing on a few questions in the mocks as well. However, most of the questions on which i guessed, i got them wrong.
