Govi, These are the verbal scores compiled from Hardik's score sheet. http://s1.postimage.org/2bEfi.jpg Govi bhai, Good analysis and initiative. I have one question based on Hardik's results. It seems, from this data, the overall performance matters more than the number of rights/wrongs in the init...

Hi Aditya, I did the GMAT on 25th Oct...exactly one month after you. From your score break up, I see you bombed verbal. This is my 2cents...but I beleive that GMAC gives a lot more weightage to the verbal score than they did earlier. I got Q 47 i.e. 77%(like you) and V 41 i.e. 92%....my overall sco...

Thanks buddy. In mocks I was getting more than 650 always. In GMAT perp I got 700 and 650. Frankly speaking, do not rely on any mock test. This is just my personal experience. No one can simulate GMAC algorithm. This is my personal opinion. I gave kaplan, Princeton, MGMAT, Grokit, Veritas everythin...

Mate, I salute you for your determination. How much were you averaging in the mocks? I believe that the results of the mocks would give you an indication of your average score. My opinion,based on feedback from various people,is that your GMAT score will be within +-20% of your mock scores.

paddle_sweep 2. I would consider taking another shot at GMAT, to try scoring in the range of 710/700, only if I am sure that score would improve my chance by about 25-40% at least. I might need another 6 months or so to go from 650 to 710/700. Why you need to spend 6 months to prepare for retaking ...

Very confusing answer choices. I hope that such questions do not appear in the real GMAT. Too many assumptions to be made in answer 3.
