Hi All,

I'm taking GMAT in 11days. I've taken 3 CAT tests
Ist test: 600
2nd test: 530
3rd test: 530

Feeling discouraged since I've been studying and expected that my 3rd test wld at least be better. Any suggestions. Should I re-schedule test date?

Depends on target score, when you plan to apply, etc..

My target score is > 700, Looking to apply to top 5 schools. Would like to apply 3rd rnd if I get my desired score

Most r3 deadlines are in early April. I would reschedule or take it and then schedule a second exam. A high score on your first try looks better than on your second try but realistically I don't think it will matter much. Many people take it 2+ times and get into great schools.

Taking it now may help get rid of those nerves.

good luck

Depends on what CATs you have tried. MGMAT CATS or the GMAT PREPs available on mba.com for free are by far the best indicators of your test potential. Until you score a +40 to +50 range above your ultimate target score, I'd suggest postpone and prepare well this time to get into the groove perfectly.
