It was my second GMAT attempt. I had earlier got a 620 after 3 months of preparation. Now after preparing for 2 months, I appeared and got 690. Q50 V 35. I have improved significantly in CR and SC but I made a lot of mistakes in RC. A bit broken by the result.

Hi allahisgreat,

First off, raising a 620 to a 690 is a great improvement - and a 690/Q50 is a fantastic Score, so it could be enough to get you into your first-choice School. As such, a retest might not be necessary. Depending on the Schools that you plan to apply to, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/

If you do choose to retest, then we'll need to examine how you performed in the Verbal section in more detail. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How many hours did you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

You might also choose to purchase the Enhanced Score Report. While the ESR doesn’t provide a lot of information, there are usually a few data points that we can use to define what went wrong on Test Day (and what you should work on to score higher). If you purchase the ESR, then I'll be happy to analyze it for you.

I am applying this year. Aiming at round 1 but would want to give GMAT another shot. So probably push my applications to next round

Hi allahisgreat,

If you are certain that you want to retest, then that's fine - but before I can offer you any advice for this next phase of your studies, I'm still going to need exact answers to my prior questions.

Hi Allahisgreat,

690 with Q50 is a very nice score, my friend, so don’t be broken! Do you plan to retake the GMAT? If so, do you need some advice regarding a study plan? Also, you may find it helpful to read the following article:
