Urgent Help. GMAT in 2 days.  [#permalink]

Does finishing early in a section boosts up GMAT score.

This is what happened with me. I purchased 2 GMAT prep official tests.
I gave one of the tests but as I just wanted mu verbal and quants section score I quit my test after I was done with the 2 desired sections. Howecer I did not receive any score. So I reset the tests and with a hope that I will receive same questions gave back the test.
On Verbal section, about 36 questions were exactly same. All the passagess were exactly same. So without reading much I marked the same answers(as I wanted a genuine score). I finished it in like 30 mins. Same happened with quants and I received a score of 690.
I was happy about my improvement so did not postpone my exam.

Today I gave the second test and to my surprise scored a 550. In face i made 13 mistakes in Verbal section whereas I had made 15 in my 690 attempt.

I understand that difficulty of the questions matter but such a vast deviation? Did time thing mattered in my 1st attempt?

Please help.

Thanks alot in advance.

Regards
Puneet Singh Anand

Hey Punnu ,

The only thing I would prefer at this moment is calm down and just relax. Don't even study anything for the next two days and think anything about the exam.

The same thing happened with me in the past. I screwed my mock 4 days before my actual and I didn't even bother about that.

I just left everything aside and gave my exam.

All the very best and keep us posted. :)

Thank you for your reply and motivation. Will surely update once I am done.

I couldn't understand the discrepancy in the score. :(
Anyways lets see what happens :)
