I could really need some advice right now if someone has some the time to spare it.
I have been practicing the GMAT for 2 and a half months now, on leave from my office.I have covered a lot of books including MGMAT verbal, OG, Kaplan 800
GRE GMAT, Nova etc. I started with a score of 620 on Gmat prep and was consistently performing from 680-730 by the end(mostly GMATprep since I could not find any free kaplan
I got a 600 on the actual score (41
quant , 30
verbal) whereas I was doing much better in verbal in the gmatprep consistently finishing 10 before time . I did get a 2-3 boldface CR (where can one practice those?) and one huge passage.
On test day,I do agree that I was very tired and sleepy but while giving the test I did not think I was doing so badly till the end when I was running out of time for the last 4-5 qs in both verbal and quant.I had not practised most of the gmat prep exams with the AWA either.That prob got to me as well.However, in terms of study I dont think I can do any more than what I did so far till I understand what went wrong.I have no idea. Pls advise.
Also, what would you all suggest - Should I reschedule for the next month. (I very badly want to apply in round two)and just trust that I will get better score next time and start my applications or
- should I wait and apply next year? I am a female ,29 and feel its already too late for me.
Also, has anybody faced such a steep decline from test scores in Gmat prep and the actual score? What could I be doing wrong?
