First off, a 680/Q49 is a strong score (it's currently right above the 80th percentile overall), so it could be enough to get you into your first-choice School. As such, a retest might not be necessary. There's no harm in retesting though - and there are clearly some points to be gained in BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. Before we discuss the data in your ESR, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs/mocks (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

Hi EMPOWERgmatRichC, Sorry for delayed response.
I studied for 3-4 months. I used following books:
For SC - Manhattan SC guide, CR - MGMAT guide and power score bilble
I scored 710 (Q50 V36) and 750 (Q50 V45) on my gmat official prep mocks. I always used to score atleast Q50 in my mocks. including gmat club tests. However in main GMAT exam, I failed in time management and scored Q49. So, I am not much worried about my quant score. I can improve it with more practice and by not feeling nervous in exam.
I scored V33 in my main exam, which is the lowest I got among all my mocks. In fact I felt that I did good in exam after finishing verbal section but was shocked to see the score. I need to know in which section of verbal I struggled the most so that I can concentrate more on that.
I am planning to apply to Indian institutes such as ISB, IIM-A, B & C this year. So I want to retake the exam by this may or june.

First off, I agree that 680 with a Q49 is a fantastic starting point. That said, before providing further advice, I’d also like to learn more about your situation with the GMAT. Once you respond to the questions already asked, I can provide specific advice.

Also, you may find it helpful to read this article: How to Score a 700+ on the GMAT — A Mini Guide for Success.

Good luck!

Hi Pradeep, the ESR actually shows that all three areas would benefit by re-working, though CR perhaps slightly less so.

Good thing is that you seem to have managed time quite well in Verbal (as opposed to Quant where you were very short on time towards the end).
