What information of schools which I want to send the report do I need to bring to the test day?

Thanks a lot for this post bb! Its very helpful!

But I had a mismatch with the table mentioned above.

I scored 46Q - (71%) and 35V - (74%) on my first attempt this month. On my unofficial report I got 650 as the total while your table shows I should have got a 670. Why is there a discrepancy?

Thank you - it is possible to have the same Raw Score but a different total score (strange but true). The reason per the insiders is that the Total score (650) and the Raw Scores (46, 35) are calculated separately using different formulas.
The table above created by PKit is not going to be precise but this is the first time I have heard of people getting as much as 20 point difference. Usually it is no more than 20.

Thank you for reporting!

Just updated the first post with the latest IR table.
The mean score has gone up from 4.26 to 4.33 in the last few months. Not huge but inching up there. Here is the latest chart:

bb,

Do we have an updated version of the GMAT score breakup?
The one at the start of this thread dates back to 2009. I'm sure much has changed ever since.

Thanks!

Just took a practice test to find out where I stand, before I start study!

Total 450

My goal is 500-600, is it possible to achieve?
English is not my native language!

Dude,

I just moved from 26 in verbal to 33.

As much as I know:

CR - Powerscore CR bible
SC - MGMAT
RC - different people have different strategies. You'll have to come up with yours.

I am just commencing my journey to take GMAT & intend to take the test on next June. What books do I need to purchase exactly & it would be convenient for me if u mention the list very precisely as per my preparation tenure of about 4 months (note - I Can study for about 3.5 hours per day on average & aspire to get 720 on the actual test).
My second inquiry is about scholarship. Is there any chance to get full free scholarship at any business school ? If yes, please kindly mention the list. Again how can I afford my living expenditures, i.e. whether there exists any earning opportunity ? (note - I am a student of Bangladesh, which is a third world poor country, & it's impossible for me to bear even beyond \$ 700 per year.)

GMAC has released a new score distribution with new percentiles.
http://www.mba.com/the-gmat/gmat-scores ... means.aspx

I will be updating the first post with these scores while keeping the older ones handy.

Hi,

The website says , Official Score Report will be sent within 20 calendar days of the test. Does this mean 20 working days or 20 days straight ? The universities I am applying to have a deadline of December 1st, 2013 hence I was wondering when I should be giving the exam in order to send the scores on time.

You will find out your Quant, Verbal, and Total scores immediately after the test.
It can take up to 20 days to determine your IR and AWA scores though it usually happens within one week. (Those scores don't really have a say in your application, unless they are really bad that is)

You can often take the test a day or two before the university deadline (not recommended but possible). You can ask the school what is "safe" and if they are OK with you taking the GMAT so close to the deadline. What happens is that you report your score on the application and the university uses that information to review your application (they later verify that what you have reported matches the official GMAC report). Most do not require AWA/IR reported at the time of submission.

However the safe thing to do is to take the GMAT a few months in advance (ideal) or 32 days in advance (that will give you a chance to retake if you need to). You are allowed to retake only after 31 days, so 32 days gives you that chance.

Good Luck!

I took a practice test 2 weeks got 510 and yesterday on another test I got 640.

Are these free practice tests really test the GMAT level? I have purchased the Kaplan test series as well. I will take them starting next week. I just wanted to check on the free practice tests for now. Please advise.

If you talking about Gmat Prep free software then they are best mocks available in the market...

Quick note- You can reset the software and take 2 more practice tests, you will see very less repeat questions, also you may want to save one for your final lap.

Hi BB,
Nice post.. have been searching for this for long !
I have a query, I appeared for GMAT on 29/10/2012 and chose 5 schools to receive my scores. I am curious as to till when should I expect revert from these schools ( I am checking my mailbox on daily basis and I do see some invitations by these schools to meet on some fair etc but no calls ! )
Does it work like this way, e.g. if the Application Deadline say for Kelley school of business for First Round was October 15 and the Notification for this round will come out in December, they wont consider my scores in First round ?

How to calculate ?? pls suggest ..

Many Thanks !

Hi

After you send your score to the schools then you have to register on their website by making some registration fee, after that you have to follow their application procedure, once you submit you application along with gmat score then you will receive interview call.
