Hey!
Some of the guys are reporting low scores due to the newly introduced experimental section .Did you face a similar problem?


Looking at the current state of affairs I am thinking of postponing my GMAT date until later.

Does any GMAT expert/instructor has any clue about what is happening?

Thanks in advance for your replies.{Urgently needed}
