I gave my GMAT today and was devastated to see the score of 43 in quantitative . My scores in the two GMAT Free software tests were 50 and 49 and in my first attempt it in real GMAT (Dec-17) was 49 ( verbal score was 25, hence cancelled) , I don't know what went wrong today, I will order ESR once the scores are available in my GMAC account.I am planning to give one more attempt . What should I do to get more than 49 in Quantitative ? Please help.

Hi madatme

This score of Q43 definitely seems like an aberration.

My best bet is you might have made a chunk of mistakes during the initial
part of the test, which led to not getting difficult questions. I feel you should
order the ESR and that should help you to understand what the main problem
with the Quant Section was?

Hope this helps you!

Thanks pushpitkc, I will get the ESR and check that. I will be more careful next time will also take this as lesson learnt.

pushpitkc is spot-on: you almost certainly made careless errors on questions that are easy for you, and it doesn't take many of those errors to cause your score to drop. This might also help you a bit: https://gmatclub.com/forum/experts-topi ... 46658.html.

Good luck with your retake, madatme! And don't think of it as a failure: think of it as an opportunity to make your next success even more satisfying. :-)

Don't loose hope -> even i got Q49 even after doing first 20 questions right -> and out of 37 i did 31/32 questions right ...
I compared my ESR with other person who got Q50 => anyone can say by seeing difficulty level graph and number of questions correct- i deserve a Q50 => get your ESR see your weakness -> if you feel some area is weak -> make sure even 800 level will be a cake walk for you on that chapter/ concept....

Don't leave even a single question to solve from gmat club test quants -> If you solve clearing your concepts, you can then think of Q50 atleast if not Q51.
There are approx 26 tests -> solve 2-3 tests per day => i am advising for only quants...

every week check your level on official gmat prep => I am sure you will se atleast a 50 there ->

All the best -> :thumbup: :thumbup:
