You will rebound... My initial attempt resulted in a dismal score of 330 and realized it could only go up from that point. I started studying and took another shot at the GMAT a while after and scored 600. I have now completed a full year in my MBA program and guess what... I get better marks than s...

What's the issue exactly? Is it that you don't know what the questions are asking? Or are you just not understand the material in the passage? sometimes do not understand. sometimes understand after rereading 6-7 times. But in Exam there is not time on this. the same situation with RC You should co...

You bring some interesting points. Perhaps Ivey's change to a one-year program may hurt its reputation down the road, but it is too early to say as it is still the most reputable bschool in Canada. It's an interesting point that you make about starting salaries and salaries after five years. Howeve...

Hi Everyone! I will be taking the GMAT on Saturday. If you wouldn't mind responding to my question that'd be great! What is one thing you wish you knew or realized after taking the exam, that you didn't know prior to taking the exam? Thank you, Richard How to set my clock alarm properly! (joking) G...

Hi guys, Just came out of the test center. A disappointing end yet again - 570 (Q-45, V-23). This is my second attempt and a 70-point improvement from previous attempt. I'm completely shocked to see my verbal score and still unable to recover from the shock. I never expected such a brutal low verba...

I also started studying over again in August and did it until the end of November. I had to take the test or I felt like I was going to bust. Looking back now, I think I did too much and did not take some time to relax and enjoy life as much as I should have. Studying for the tes is a good behavior,...

Folks, Thanks for all your wishes. Yes 660 might not be the best score for a top school but its certainly not the worst. I am not interested in getting involved in replying to few negative conversations on my score. We all are here to help each other and learn so I would rather focus on that. I wou...

My school was asking for a 550 min score. I got 600 and feel it was good enough to be admitted. I succeeded and got admitted at that particular school, which is a nice accomplishment to me. Of course I would have loved to get a 700+ score, but life goes on and I decided to learn to play harmonica an...

What college you want to go? I mean honestly, you seem like most satisfied man in the world who was aiming for 660??? Here probably, trash the score sheet of 770! Amigo, What's the point to study like crazy to get a 700+ score when your target school's requirement is let's say 600? The GMAT is not ...

Why don't you take some mock test in the worst possible situations? Late in the evening, very early in the morning, TV on, cellphone on... you know what I mean? When you get to the test centre for the real test, your concentration should not be a problem anymore. P.S.: I am serious with the suggesti...

The thing was that the test centre was at a temporary location as Pearson had to lease a new commercial space or whatever. I could have scheduled the test in another city and drive 3 hours, but I wanted to wait for the newborn to get older. For your info, this tread is more than one year old and sin...

Have a look at the link below... I got a free retake, but my score was not erased. Anyhow, I got the score I desired with the retake and got admitted at the school of my choice!
