I took the GMAT today and scored a miserable 480.
My GMATprep and highest mgmat scores were:

gmatprep 1: 640
gmatprep 2: 670
mgmat 2: 610
mgmat 3: 640

what happened?? I didnt feel nervous during the test at all
Is the real GMAT getting harder? I feel totally depressed and discouraged right now

all advice is welcomed

real gmat is getting harder, unfortunately
thanks to excessive demand for the mba programme worldwide
speaking of wordlwide, btw, there is a slow but solid tendency of many overseas schools to scrap gmat altogether...some studies showed that (especially for outside of US) there is no significantly positive correlation between the gmat score and mba marks
the argument is that gmat is not a sufficient reflection of abilities in respect of the mba programme
many schools are adopting alternative in-house learning diagnostic tests instead
I can bet that in 7-10 years time, most of the top schools in EU will drop the test alltogether

Hi Suresh

My split for the real GMAT was 27q 30v, on the GMAT preps I was getting at least 42q and 35v. Im supposed to start some classes next week. Do you think I should drop these classes and continue full time with the GMAT again or should I put the GMAT down for a couple of months and try again later?

does any one have any sound advice on how I can increase my quant over the next couple of months?

also, I think I may have missed a few questions at the beginning and then the GMAT kept throwing easy questions at me. I do remember the test getting easier towards the middle. So how do you double check your answers and stay within time limits?
