Often we see students scoring 700, 760, 740 or any other score above that magical number, "700". I suppose everyone gets filled in with enthusiasm of how the GMAT could be cracked that easily. Trust me friends,it is no piece of cake. GMAT IS an exam for professionals. Normally, students in college prepare for GMAT during college and give it before they start working. A clever strategy, however, the people who actually have a chance at admissions, the people who study along side work, have a pretty low score.

The average score falls due to such reasons. Now coming to the topic, you must understand that the 700 threshold needs a lot of time and energy. Rome wasn't built in a day. You cannot expect to jump from an official score of V27 to V36 in a week. GMAT needs time. If you're a fresher, please take out as much time as you can to do so. People who work need to get a decent score of 700 to just have a chance at the university they are targeting. Just stay focused, respect the exam and respect the time, you'll get that score you so desperately desire.

Businessconquerer - Thank you for taking time to create a topic - we value your contribution; however, the topic is too generic and test takers are pretty much aware of these details. Hereafter, please make sure to add more substance to your posts. For instance, how would you advise to test takers to balance work and study or share ways to stay focused during the GMAT preparation. Let's not create a forum topic that adds very little value to forum members. I hope you would understand. Thanks.
