I need advice from you people quite urgently. I applied to various B-schools and got a ding from all of them :twisted: .I personally believe that my low GMAT score(590) and applying in late rounds was responsible for my rejections.

I have given GMAT six times, yeah that's true six times and my highest GMAT score is 590, but i gave the GMAT without any coaching.In my last two GMAT exams, i was performing quite well in Arcos and Princeton tests, score ranging between 670 to 760 score but on the final day i got once 530 and another time 590. Quite dis heartened :oops:

I always have problem with verbal section. I somehow do not have confidence in Sentence correction and RC.I do well in SC and RC in practice tests but do not know what happens on the final exam day.What should i do to improve my verbal score?

I wanted to ask a questions, does ETS has some rule that people who have given GMAT a couple of times there score will remain in that range.I personally believe as i do not undersatnd why i do not get score above 600 in my GMAT?

Secondly, how to improve my verbal score.I have done OG couple of times so i probably know the answers, so i feel OG won't be of much use. Where can i get sample questions, i have tried Arcos and Princeton but not Kaplan?How to improve my verbal score?

Thirdly, should i give GMAT again and think of applying to top B-schools?I am quite disheartened

Here is what I think. You took GMAT 6 times without getting above 600. This means that you are making some fundamental and consistent mistakes either in GMAT preparation strategy or on the exam itself.

Ask yourself these questions are you really studying for GMAT or procrastinating?
Do you really take notes of your mistakes and work on them? Do you study for GMAT actively? Do you really believe you can crack 700 barrier?

Vikky, study your @$$ off, study smart, believe it, and you will be able to do it.

I wish you all the best on your next GMAT attempt.

There is no "rule" in a normative sense that a student's score must remain below 600 if she has taken the test x times. However, there is an empirical "rule" that students tend to score near their prior scores without some form of substantive intervention.
