2nd Attempt GMAT down to 630 from 650 [#permalink]

Hi All,

Today was a very frustrating day when my GMAT score went down from 650 to 630 in my 2nd attempt. Just wondering if it is common and many other folks have also experienced this.

Below is my GMAT break up :
1st attempt - 650 (Q48, V, 30)

2nd GMAT attempt today (9/26)
- 630 (Q-44, V 34)

I was having high hopes today. As I was getting 700+ in last few GMAT tests that I had given at home. Summary below,

Manhattan GMAT Test 1-3 -> 670- 680
Manhattan GMAT Test 4-6 -> 700-710 (Q - 48-49 & V- 36-40)

GMAT Prep 1 - 670
GMAT Prep 2 - 710 (given 1 day before actual GMAT, Q- 49, V- 37)

Was I getting a high score at home, as I had seen few of the questions in above tests (that I was giving at home) couple of months back. Trust me I didn't remember the answer for any of those question. The only thing that I can make out during home test was that I have seen this question earlier.

Any advice/suggestion for me to go for 3rd GMAT attempt or not will be really great. And if it is common to have above kind of experience in GMAT score.

Also which books/question bank you will suggest for this time that will give me a new and more challenging set of questions? As I have already done Quant and verbal, OG twice during these last 2 attempts and I have read Manhattan books too.

Thanks

If you are debating whether to retake GMAT, you're more inclined towards retaking it. Having said that, retake depends on the school's requirements you wish to apply to.

If 650 is enough for the schools you wan to apply to, retake wouldn't make much sense. If you are targeting ivy league schools and have an average GPA, retake only after you see an improvement on practice tests/
