I may be the only guy on this forum to have scored poorly even on the fourth attempt as one can learn from his/her mistakes and can improve the score.
Even i tried the same got 48 in quant and 25 in verbal in the third attempt.
so in hope to get more than 650 i tried for the fourth attempt but gmat berated me and i failed miserably
never hoped to score 36 in maths and 19 in verbal.
I mean this score can be achieved without any preparation.

Now i don't have the will power, confidence and money to go for another attempt.
so just logging off from the gmat world and yes i know my career is destroyed.

bye bye friends i hope other gmatclub members get their desired scores.
all the best

what is the highest score you have received? is it 650? a 48 in quant demonstrates a good quantitative abilities. most schools take the highest score. you may want to 'shop around' to see which schools come within your score.

a case of nerves perhaps? did u take coaching? i'd recommend that, since ur weak in verbal, and that can be improved by coaching.

But i think if i give it again and suppose this time i may score 650
but the adcomms would take it as negative because i have already attempted it 4 times

gurpreet07,

Having an MBA does not assure you great career. Take heart in your hard work...! If everyone gets the same result to their effort this world will stop progressing...!

Dreams are quashed before new take birth...!

Look around you folks who have fundamentally followed their dreams, made lives better and created wealth (barring Google duo) have little to do with education... but more about passion...!

Show some class and stop publicly renouncing yourself and what your mother gave it to you...! This attitude is not going to fetch you much promise for future...!

Believe in yourself.. and be a man!

if you give up only then your career is destroyed. Pls remember that no one and nothing can destroy your career. Only yourself can make or break your career.
It is upto you whether or not to re-try on gmat; but, establish a worthy goal and go after it with all gusto.

best.

Their is an old adage in Sports:

"Its never over until the Fat lady sings".

I tell you the postives from your fourth attempt from an evaluator point of view:

If i were the evaluator, i would think that this guy never gives up. No matter what had happened, this guy still shows the determination and attitude needed.

Get up Man..Never give up..just bind some personal thoughts with GMAT. It is helping in my case ..hope it helps you too.

Best of Luck

Hi gurpreet,
Seems as if ur devastated after ur result. I can understand d pain. Even I took gmat 4 the second time n was able to improve the score drastically. The books that gave me the confidence were
1. Mcgraw Hill's Conquering the Gmat verbal.
2. 1012 GMAT questions by Princeton review.

Take at least 10-15 tests in actual test conditions.
Make it a point to read English journals such as nytimes and economist everyday.

This surely will help.

hey gurpreet,
One good is news is that the past is gone with the end of 2009, the worst is over and now what ever is left is the good things . Start from fresh benchmark your best and prepare and target each practice test to beat your best .

when a journey is longer than expectation ,one should walk each mile with patience to reach the destination. Many will quit on the way and consider it as their destiny , but few will struggle till they reach to the end and will be called the lucky fews.

If my target is to attain a 700+ and i am at alevel of 570+ , then rather working for a 130 point jump i should work for 50 point jump in each of my prep test and then move further. This way my confidence level will be straight and on the D day i will not panic.

these are the lines on which i am working right now to over come my two failures and still charged for a 3rd fight.

never lose "the hope ".
When going gets tough , the tough gets going....
we will beat the beast one day
