Dear all,

I have been a regular follower of GMAT forum and indeed have benefited from it.

Today I took my first GMAT and got 640 (Q 44, V 34)
Screwed up big time on quant. Kind of hate myself. Also my test centre made me run for an hour unnecessarily through thick of the traffic before the start of exam, triggering bad day. Uggghhhhhh.....

Before I only took 2 GMAT prep tests and scored 720 & 710. Quant was 49 in both. But today I screwed up with 44. Initially took longer time and in need to catch up screwed middle part.

Need motivation from you guys, seriously. Can someone advice as how early should I reattempt ? Also if I want to stop my scores being sent to schools since I haven't scored per my expectations ?

Don't stress too much about it. It sounds like it was just an off day & you've been scoring a lot higher on practice tests, so you have a good chance at a stronger score next time. And schools really will take the highest test score & not penalize you for lower ones. So take a deep breath & just give it another shot! Do your best to get the GMAT out of the way by May so you can hit the ground running when most of the prompts are out in June/July. You can do it!

relax bro you had a bad day. I am not worried about your math performance . I am sure next time you give you will atleast get a q49-50. It is not possible to go from 49 to 44 unless you had a bad day or panic. I think you should work on your verbal score and atleast get a v40-44 in mocks so that on exam day you land up with a 40 atleast

Hi akhiparth,

I'm sorry to hear that Test Day didn't go as well as planned. When these types of score drops occur, the two likely "causes" involve either something that was unrealistic during practice or something that was surprising (or not accounted for) on Test Day. If you can answer a few questions, then we should be able to figure this out:

When you took your CATs:
1) Did you take the ENTIRE CAT each time (including the Essay and IR sections)?
2) Did you take them at home?
3) Did you take them at the same time of day as when you took your Official GMAT?
4) Did you ever do ANYTHING during your CATs that you couldn't do on Test Day (pause the CAT, skip sections, take longer breaks, etc.)?
5) Did you ever take a CAT more than once? Had you seen any of the questions BEFORE (re: on a prior CAT, in an online forum or in a practice set)?
