I had posted my first GMAT experience in one of the forums. Now, I learnt that this is the right place to put the debrief.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
I gave my first attempt at GMAT on Sept 2016. I had faced a rather strange problem (at least for me:-)) during my real GMAT exam. I am not sure what happened but I felt as if I was completely blanked out during the entire test. Majorly in verbal section. I just couldn't make out the sentence though I read the words on the screen I was not able to join them and make a meaning out of them ( I felt like Darsheel Safari in "Tare Jameen Par").

My ability to solve any question plummeted. I am pretty sure I had solved much tougher questions during my preparation and mocks. Also, as part of my job, I read research journals, patents and other english technical articles quite regularly. I am certain that vocabulary was not the issue. I am sincerely worried how would I cope with this situation. Please advise what would have happened and how do I improve on this situation.

Your advise is highly appreciated.

Hi Balaji,

It's been over 1.5 years since we discussed that Official Score result, so it would help to know what you've been doing since then.

1) What studying - if any - have you done since then?
2) Did you retake the Official GMAT (and if so, then how did you score?)?
3) Is your Score Goal still 720+?
4) Did you end up applying to Business School? What are your application plans now?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
