I first attempted GMAT in 2015.
I had to go to my center at 12 PM and the test was supposed to start by 1 PM. I wasn't prepared and was feeling under confident during the whole process.
After quickly finishing the AWA, I jumped to IR and it was a disaster. My morale went down as I could not solve a lot of problems in that section. I was looking forward to quants which was my strong suit like most Indians and I did a decent job in that section. Then comes the deciding factor, verbal! As I was going through the questions, I thought I did well, but when the score came, I was shocked. I got a 620. (V49 Q27). I cancelled that score and walked out feeling dejected. It took me a week to get back up on my feet after that defeat.
I have still not given up and I am going to attempt GMAT again in September this year.

What could help is ESR Report that you can get from GMAC for your test. It contains the detailed analysis of your performance. Read the reviews before you go for it.
All the best for next time dude.

I think you meant to say Q49, V27? Either way, keep your head held high! As long as you study the foundational concepts and hone in on areas of weakness, then you should be in a much better place the next time around.

Hi sashankvissa,

Since it's been about 2 years (or so) since you took the GMAT - and it's unclear whether you've done any consistent studying for the Test since then - you're essentially starting 'from scratch.' As such, it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can download 2 for free from www.mba.com. That score will give us a good sense of your current strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

I'd like to know a bit more about your timeline and goals:
1) What is your goal score?
2) Do you have a Test Date scheduled in September yet (and if so, then what is it?)?
3) When are you planning to apply to Business School?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
