Hello!

I have taken GMAT two times. I had been scoring around 700 in mocks when I took the exam first time. However, unfortunately, I goofed up on the day of the test and managed only a 590. I definitely had to give a second attempt after that. In the second series of mocks, I used to score around 720 and on the day of the test I got a 690 (Quantitative 47, Verbal 38). However, I am still inclined on giving one more attempt and touch the early 700s, at least. Please advice me whether my decision is apt, and, If I plan to re take the exam, what should be the plan of action ahead.

Your invaluable piece of advice will be of great help to me.

In anticipation of your response!

Regards,
Shubham

Hi Shubham. I would recommend you to first see where exactly are you lacking. As I can see, your quant score is below par if you are eyeing 700+. I think if you work on your quant, then you can easily score 700+. GMATCLUB has really good CATs for quant. You can take tests on GMATCLUB or work on quant from any other source as per your wish. I strongly recommend you to work on quant and once you are confident enough of scoring 50 in quant, you are good to go for a re-test. All the best!

If you have time on your hands, it may not be a bad idea to retake. If you get 700+, you can keep the score else you can cancel it. Though, you should know that 690 is already a very decent score.
What was your Quant/Verbal split in the practice tests? You certainly have good scope in Quant since 47 gives a low percentile (about 65%ile)
38 in Verbal is about 85%ile which is certainly quite acceptable.

For advanced concepts of Quant, I would suggest you to check out our blog: https://www.veritasprep.com/blog/category/gmat/
You will find many useful posts there.
