I got a 710 on my GMAT official practice test last month when I started my preparation. However I just gave an MGMAT prep and got a disturbing score of 630. My GMAT is less than 20 days away and I am very worried. (4th August)

Such discrepancies are not uncommon and I do not say this to boost your confidence. Many have reported seeing a boost in their official results after lower mocks. I do not know exact numbers but it is my general observation people tend to score higher than their lowest of the last few scores on mock tests. Remember, GMAT is a complex science and as good as unofficial sources are, they may just be ever so slightly tougher. I have not gone through MGMAT but scoring low on their tests is not necessarily a bad thing for you. Maybe you can check MGMAT prep test reviews to see if others notice a similar trend. If so, focus on your current weak areas.
You still have some time to virtually go through all the concepts and spend time on the toughest questions to get a better understanding of each concept. Best of luck!

In general, you really shouldn't put much stock in the scores you see on company tests, no matter how good the company. No company test perfectly replicates the real GMAT (none really come all that close, in my opinion) and they're certainly not using real GMAT questions or the real scoring algorithm.

If you want a realistic assessment of your current level, the only way to get that is to take a GMATPrep test, or take the real GMAT, but if you got a 710 a month ago, you must have been around that level then. You've presumably gotten better since, if you've been studying, so I don't think you should be concerned. If your real test is in three weeks, you should be taking at least a couple of GMATPrep tests anyway, just to get comfortable with the test taking experience and with your pacing strategy, so you'll have good information soon from those tests.
