I got 730 (Q47 V42) and 740 (Q49 V41) on GMAT Prep only to get 660 (Q48 V34) on the actual test. These two GMAT Preps were re-takes after two months of studying. The first two times I had gotten 690 twice (Q49 V37 and Q47 V39) however I did not look at the solutions nor the answers back then because the software did not allow me to review the test the next day.
What I found surprising was my low verbal score. I got even lower than the first time even though I felt that the english was easy during the test. What is also weird is that on top of all of that, I had found comprehensive RC, SC and CR packages on GMAT Club and I was getting 4 out 36 questions wrong (at the max) in RC and SC. I was a bit weaker in CR but as you can see from my scores above it never affected me that much.
I really do not know what happened during the test and I am not sure if retaking will improve my score. I am willing to apply to INSEAD (avg GMAT 705) and IE (avg GMAT 680).
The advice I am seeking is for the following questions:
- Should I retake in a month?
- What can I do during this month to improve? I already went through MGMAT books
, OG, GMAT Club Tests
and GMAT Prep Tests and Question Pack.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
