I took my GMAT yesterday and scored a very dismal score of 600(Q46 and V 27). It was really a very very bad score.
I thought I was doing well until the end when I realized that I didn't get any bold faced questions, my fears went up and and they got solidified looking at my score.
Started off Quant with a very decent question, hit upon with two Statistics questions(2 and 3). I was stumped with one questions which ran exactly for 10 lines - word problem(It was 12th qn). I couldn't find an answer in the choices and wasted some 4 - 5 mins easily or even more than that. Typically, I end my Quant with 10 - 15 mins to spare. Even in KP tests, i used to have atleast 5 - 10 mins.
At the end I was left with 11 qns 10 mins. I guessed on one DS qn( It was of coordinate Geometry), but I solved even the 37th qn too and just scraped thru with 28 seconds left. I took a deep breath. I thought I would have screwed 4 qns easily and so was expecting around 48 scaled score. In all the practice tests, I got 50 scaled score( even in kaplan
I got 3 qns from permutation/probablility and they were all simple straight forward qns.
Started off with a SC in verbal, hit upon with a astronomy(Sun, Solar and Cosmic Rays) RC at 4 qn, 7th qn was a CR and then 8 - 11 qns were another RC(a biological and bacterial degradation RC). After confidently answering both the RCS, I was happy that RCs weren't bad(It was my weak point in Practice Tests). I thought I was doing pretty confidently with all the questions. Hit by another set of RCs(One around 25 a Social Sciences RC and another one around 31 qn).
When I came to 39 - 40th qn, I thought I did well but was scared to death because I didn't find any Bold Face Qn.
This score of verbal is the least I got yesterday when compared to that of any another practice test.
The standard of the quant questions are above OG level but were covering some topics of Cooridate Geometry, Statistics and Averages.
English was pretty much at the OG level( It was the reason for my confidence when I wrote the exam).
I'm very disappointed. I wanted to enter 7XX Club and was confident about it.
My practice scores are as follows:
PP1 - 750(Q-50, V 42)
KP Diag - 650
PR1 - 690
PR2 - 710
PR3 - 730(3 days before the G day)
KP1 - 610(Q-50, V- 27)
KP2 - 580(Q-50, V - 27)
KP3 - 590(Q-50, V- 28)
KP5 - 600(2 days before the Gday)
PP2-740(Day before the G-day)
I dont know where to start my prepn(If I've to start, because I'm exhausted with all the qns from OG and kinda know the answers too!!)
