690 - totally confused

by testplan » Sat Mar 13, 2010 1:35 pm
In my first attempt I scored 610 (Q 46 V26), I have just scored 690 in my second attempt (Q40 V44), you might have understood my plight at looking at my Quant score.

A 40 in Quant is the least I ever got in all the prep exams in took. iTs a 58 percentile score!, I think toooo low for an MBA.

Need advice,do I take another shot at the test?

610 Q 46 ,V 26

690 Q 40 V 44

totally confused and defused.

Those applications which are a good shot with 690 should be completed immediately and then give one more shot for your dream programs. In this way you will be risk free.

I suggest you should give it one more shot. I see that you dramatically improved on Verbal. I believe many people have difficulty of jumping from the 20's to 40's on verbal. I think you will easily improve your quant to the top 40's in order to score in the lower mid 700's.

Good luck.
