After all the preparation and excitement, I only got 530 in GMAT (Ist attempt).
I am totally disappointed with my scores. Its not that I didn’t prepare well but because I freaked out in the test and was always looking at the clock.
Like many others, I also dared to dream about going to a top MBA school. But now, I am totally lost and depressed.
I NEED GUIDANCE......... BADLY!!!!!
While preparing for GMAT, I did the following
and did the following mock tests
Test - 4 tests - my scores were in 5xx all the time and only after I started getting repeats I was able to bring my score up.
Kaplantest.com - 1 -My Page Test - 630
Princeton Review - 2, Lower 600s
GMAT prep - 1 - 500
GMAT prep - 2 - 500
Did I fail to read my mock test scores?
What happened in the test? I started strong with AWA and did well. Then in Quant, I was doing good (I remember getting a very hard SD problem with 2 graphs in it) till the first 20 Questions and somewhere doing the calculations, I forgot about the time. By the time I looked at the clock I had 25 min for 17 Questions and thats where I freaked out. I started reading the questions and within secs I was coming to the conclusion that I can’t do the problem, so I started skipping them and screwed them all.
Verbal - I need more practice for sure. I have to improve in SC, CR and then RC. In this section also, I freaked out in the end.
Bottom line - I have to SPEED UP in both the sections and I have to improve a lot without doing silly/stupid mistakes
So pls, all those who made it,
1. Pls guide me
2. Pls provide me more material (links etc.,) to improve upon my skills
3. Pls tell me DO's and DONT's
4. I am looking for more GMATPrep tests
as the 2 that I had are giving me repeated questions now.
I work in a very fast pace environment and I put in lot of hours in my job but I still have my focus on GMAT. I really want to do good as implied by my user ID but not only in dreams. So, please help!
