Hi Experts,

I appeared for my GMAT last week and scored 690. I was consistently scoring 720-760 in the GMAT Prep Exams (1-6).

My verbal score was around expected lines, 39, but Quant was only 45. I never scored less than 49 in Quant in any of practice tests, even peaking to 51 in my last prep test before the exam.

Any tips will be valuable? Should I simply appear for exam again? I am actually both shocked and disappointed with Quant score.

Regards

Hello shiva,

First of all don't get disheartened of your score.

Your score that day may not be representative of your true capacity.

The reasons may be ranging from silly mistakes to an error caused by less sleep or stressed mind.

Nonetheless..

Cool yourself... U were scoring well so whatever it is... It is fixable in a short time.

Take another GMAT prep test from GMAC just like u would take the original test. I have heard each time you take the test there are different questions because there is a pool of questions in the GMAT official prep tests rather than fixed no of questions... U may have some repeats though.

That said. Go through your error log and see the quant part. Work on your deficiencies.

I wish you all the best. I do believe that it was just a bad day for you and you will end up with a great score.

Take one more test for sure because you were better than what you got.

All the best

Manish

Get your ESR first. Work on the areas in which you are weak (relatively) and then take the test again, preferably within a month. You should see your desired score.

Hi Shiva, you must re-appear in the exam. Nothing fancy to be done for the re-attempt. Just maintain your current level of preparation and re-appear.

The bright side is that you already have a decent benchmark of 690 and so, the only way you can go, is upwards!

Believe in yourself and you will prevail! All the best.

Hi shiva2906,

I am sorry to hear that your result was not in line with your expectation. Quite often test day results are not the same as mock results and there are many reasons out there for this. To improve from here, you must first identify the sections that you didn’t do well on. If you have ordered the ESR then you can check from there or else you may follow the below mentioned steps:
1. Identify topic level preparedness using Ability Quizzes in Scholaranium
2. Isolate the topics in which you are relatively weak
3. Improve upon those topics
If you need help in creating personalized study plan to reach your target score, you can also write to us support@e-gmat.com.
