Hi All,

I have recently taken my GMAT. I got 530 score.

I took coaching but still i got 530 score my score split is q-47 v-10. Verbal literally ruined my score. I was expecting around 34-37 in verbal but i did'nt reach that score.

Some of the observations that i am sharing with all of you guys so that it would help you to keep in mind during the test.

1) Time. no one can stop time. while doing verbal i thought of spending 20 minutes for initial 10 questions. But, i took 25 minutes to take the first 10 questions and it literally ruined my score.

2) Reading comprehension- This is most irritating section of all the sections in GMAT. literally you don't get interest in reading the complete passage, understand and answer every question. that too GMAT gives around 4 passages which will definitely takes your interest out. What i will be doing is i start reading news papers daily and at least read a article in popular magazines.

3) Ignoring GMAT Club. This is most helpful knowledge sharing sight i have ever seen in the world. take your time in answering atleast 15-20 questions in each topic and solve problems. this will help you in gaining confidence.

4) Don't leave any topic in GMAT. this will make your confidence levels down when a unknown topic questions comes your way.

5) Categorising each topic and practising. This is most important tip that every one should follow. for RC i did not follow this approach so l was unable to get along with the this section.

6) Don't let your office work pressure come in b/w your GMAT preparation. i assume most of the guys who take GMAT have work experience.

7) The greatest and worst discovery of the century is cell phone. This literally kills your concentration and thus impacts overall preparation. we are in a time where we face multiple distractions, to overcome we need steady concentration. i urge you to avoid keeping your phones near you while preparing for your exam. those who prepare GMAT in mobile i leave those guys to god !!!!!!!!

8) Try to get quants 51 if you are strong in that area. i recommend people to buy Manhattan advanced quant book who are aiming for 51.

9) Constant perseverance, Motivation, Hard work, Smart work, Goal orientation will take your score above 700.

Last but not least Practice, Practice, Practice !!!! Makes your score perfect.

These are the points i am going to put in mind while retaking the test. I hope time will come along way and gift with a score that will change my future.

Best regards to all.

Hi PavanChebolu,

I'm sorry to hear that Test Day didn't go as well as hoped. You mentioned that you expected to score V34 (while you actually scored V10), but it's not clear WHY you expected to score that high. Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) How long have you studied?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

4) What is your goal score?
5) When are you planning to retake the GMAT?
6) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
7) What Schools are you planning to apply to?
