Hi Experts and GMATclub membes
I gave my for the first time 2014 and scored 590 (q49, V20)
Then, again in 2016 and scored 630 (q50 v24)
And once again I am plannig to retake in the august 2017
But I am little nervous
Here I am putting test score from various test
Veritast 1to 7 (670, 690,700,710, 720)
Kaplan 2 ( score 720)
Gmat prep 3 690 (extende pack)
Gmat prep 4 700 (exteded pack)
GMAT prep 5 720 (extende pack)
Gmat prep 6 670 ( Attempt 1 4 months back ) 770 (Attempt2) (Extended pack)
within the last month I never scored less than 720.
I think All my test score are little inflated. because I solved many questions from GMATCLUB. So during exam, I feel that I am seeing question, which I solve earlier or question that require somewhat similar concept.
So to get away my fear I solved all th new problem of OG 2018.
Out of all the new RC question i.e out 20 or 21 new question I did 2 wrong.
In CR I did 4 wrong out of 19 or 21 question.
IN SC I did 4 wrong out of 21 or 20 question.
So, can I trust on these score that during my real GMAT I will be able to cross the bar of 700.
please explain

Hi SunnyIndia, Answer to the question "What is the right time for the test" is never easy. Also, I feel it is very difficult to reach a stage wherein we can say that my study is now 100% complete. (I know few people do claim, but you know GMAT is not a test of your academics). Based on the error analysis above I don't think anyone can predict if it is a good time for your take now or are you going to score 700+. These numbers say that you are getting 20% questions wrong, does that mean you will get approximate % of questions right on GMAT, the answer can be yes and no. It also depends upon, where are you getting these questions wrong on GMAT exam, are those questions in first 10, or in the middle or in the end.

Offical mocs can give you some kind of prediction on the score, but as you have exhausted these tests, I would suggest try our Veritas or Manhattan tests. (Provided you have not answered those questions before, else these mocs will also reflect inflated score). If that is also not an option, go with the gut feeling. If you feel confident, go ahead and attempt the exam, if not, spend time in revising the concepts and then give it a shot.

Hope this helps!

Hello SunnyIndia

As far as I can analyse your Mock scores, You will land between 700 -740 actual GMAT score, mostly on the +ve side.
The reason being you have constantly score above 700 in the near future. Also you have solved sufficient number of GMAT questions on GMAT club.
Since the questions might be repeated in the actual test, ti doesn't matter a lot because the in the test you have a pressure of time. So due to pressure, you keep solving questions even if you have attempted the same question earlier. Also if you are getting questions from the same concepts which were tested by the u in the questions of GMAT. Its great that you have actually solved most of the questions types which will be asked in the actual GMAT exam.

So I would say don't worry much, Keep on solving questions on gmatclub forum with the timer on and take a convenient date in August if you are planning to apply this year and targeting a score above 700.

If you are planning a score above 750, try to find out your weak areas and solve more questions on GMAT club and take another mock to check your current GMAT level.

All the best.
