Hey! So I gave the free mock-1 on the official site. With zero preparation (before I began preparing) to check my current position. I ended up getting a 360, this is disappointing however, none of the questions with figures or graphs had any images probably some technical glitch. I need to understand is this a good score had I not faced the technical error what would have been my score? I'm planning to apply ONLY in Singapore, Canada.
Here is my current profile -

Target GMAT score?

Thanks

Hi anshulm.

It's really tough to say what your score would have been, since some of the questions that were missing information could have been easy questions, and so answering them incorrectly could have dragged your score down significantly.

Also, what constitutes a "good score" depends on your score goal.

Having information on your verbal section score would be helpful, as that score should be accurate.

I can say that, even faced with some quant questions that were missing information, if your skill level were, say, in the mid 600's, probably you would have scored higher than 360.

In any case, your best move would be to do the following.

Spend some time familiarizing yourself with the GMAT and with how to answer the various types of questions, so that you aren't almost a complete newbie seeing GMAT questions without having at least a basic sense of how to answer them. Then, take another practice test and get a more accurate read on where you stand. Then come back here armed with better information to get some input on how to attain your goals.

Hi anshulm,

Many Test Takers are unhappy with their initial practice scores, but you really shouldn't be. It's just a measure of your skills right now - and you'll improve over time as you learn more about the content, patterns and Tactics needed to earn that higher Score. Unfortunately, there's no way to account for how much higher you might have scored if the technical issues with your practice CAT test had not occurred.

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 your timeline and your goals:

1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) Which Schools are you planning to apply to?

3. Canada - Rotman, York University and the likes (Tier-1) basically.
Singapore - NUS let me know of any other B-schools I can aim for

Hi anshulm,

With 6+ months of potential study time, you've given yourself plenty of time to train and improve - which is good. To determine the type of GMAT Score that you might need to properly apply to Schools that interest you, I suggest that you research the individual Programs (most Programs offer 'class profile' information, including average GMAT Score, Median Score, etc.). In addition, you might find it helpful to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile and plans. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

1) Going forward, how many hours do you think you can consistently study each week?

Hi, anshulm

Welcome to GMAT CLUB. Firstly, I’m sure that taking an official or mock test is good for beginners to check their level, which is necessary to strategize your own study plan. Your score 380 could seem very low right now, but you should not be disappointed since you can improve it dramatically up to 700 supposing that you put a huge effort in GMAT studying. However, even in this case, you should set your target score, since it could be a great initiative for you during a long journey.

It is really difficult to estimate what score you might have gotten without any technical errors, because GMAT’s estimating algorithm is quite complicating. For example, the points alloted to the questions are different. Also, if you skip questions due to lack of time, then you will get lower score than you just mark the guessed answer. A lot of factors are contributing to your total score.

You should spend time steadily studying both verbal and quant. Considering your score, solidifying bases is essential. When you have a strong establishment, you can raise your score rapidly. So, focus on understanding concepts at first. Do not jump into solving question with weak concepts. It could seem that you can solve even the hardest question right after learning the concepts, but you should always keep in mind that skipping easy level questions is not a good way for the beginner with your score. You’d better refer to the other members’ review and decide which prep and review courses fit you.

Please let us know if you have further questions.

Good luck!
