HI all, I took my GMAT in May and scored 630 (Q50,V25,AWA4.5). I'm disappointed with my effort and completely clueless about what to do next.
My mock test details: -

GMAT prep1 700 (Q48 V36) - few repeated questions in verbal
GMAT prep2 670 (Q49 V33) - few repeated questions in verbal
MGMAT1 640 (Q47 V31)
MGMAT2 700 (Q47 V38)
Varitas 630 (Q45 V33)
MGMAT3 640 (Q49 V30)
MGMAT4 640 (Q48 V31)
Princeton 640 (Q51 V28)
MGMAT5 660 (Q47 V33)
MGMAT1 660 (Q51 V32)

All the tests were given in real GMAT conditions. I've followed OG & MGMAT books for preparation.
My profile:
Indian & BTech with 3.2 GPA
9 years of IT experience with decent credentials
I'm unable to decide whether I should give 2nd try or I should apply with this score. Please also let me know in which colleges can I apply with this score.

Thanks,

Hi Gavan,

If its your first attempt then I will say its not a bad score! I got 570 in my first attmept and my avg mock test score was 680!

Now coming to your score. You look good in quant. A little push and a more confident approach will get you 51 easily!

Regarding Verbal - I see that your avg score is 33-34. The same was the case with me! I was not good in RC! I was kind of OK in SC and was good in CR! This is the story when i wrote it last time!

I took a break of 2-3months and changed things slightly. For more details you can check out my gmat story at
570-to-700-my-gmat-journey-133461.html

And i will suggest you to re-take the exam, as you still have a lot of time left to go for the apps!

Thanks for the encouraging words nktdotgupta!
I'm in process to convince myself for retake but need to check how much time I can give to study now. Please let me how much time I have before app deadlines and how to plan for verbal study.

While your math performance was fantastic, the major challenge for you is the verbal section. I think that a 25V is too low, so a retake is probably in order. Can you tell us more about your verbal preparation? What difficulties do you have with verbal questions?

In verbal i do many mistakes in easy questions too and sometimes not able to identify which question is easy and which one is hard, but major problem in verbal is that I'm not able to answer the question within time.
