That's good to hear! One of my girlfriends got a 650 and took it a month later and got a 720... Some people on this board who did really well on the first shot said "don't bother taking it again your score won't improve" - It kind pissed me off!!!


That's not encouraging at all! You can definitely improve the score. It sounds like you're already trying practice questions/tests so that's great. I know some people on the forum used a course to help provide structure to their studying - is that something you think might help? Just another idea :)

Good luck!

Thanks Jlola-

It's worth a shot I figure!

Thanks all!


I think it's safe to assume those that got a great score the first time around are better at standardized tests in general - some of just aren't, it takes a special kind to score near perfect or in the 95-99 percentile the first time around. So for us who are not natural at these tests, all you have to do is practice! There's always a chance you will do better if you begin scoring in your ideal range on your practice tests - go for it!

hi, hardaway. I too took the gmat twice - a 630 the first time and a 710 after that. Quant was also my Waterloo: I don't remember my score, but the percentile was something like 48%. Both times, I never read the last 7 questions. The big difference was that I was panicked during the first round and skipped through the first questions without really doing them right. The second time I focused on getting those first ones right (without taking too much time) and the outcome was much better - 64%, I think.

My point is that you're not alone and we're cheering for you! Also, you might try to do some practice problems right before you go in the testing center, just to get in the groove.

Let us know how it goes!

Whether you can improve your score all depends on how much room you have to improve. Maybe they were telling people with relatively high scores not to retake. You have to weigh how much you think you'll improve with the time investment.

A girl from Duke told me she took the GMAT four times. I have no idea on the score range, but clearly it worked out for her.
