GMAT: take two
Well I’m no longer stressed, got better scores in practice exams and got the same result in my GMAT exam as last time. Truthfully I’m at a bit of a loss.
What Went Well
Not stressed, so brain worked.
Finished all sections of exam
Quant better than last time but not where it should be
Got a really good score on integrated reasoning. 82 percentile! Look at me.
What Went Badly
The verbal bombed from 80 to 60 percent. Have no idea why.
There is an obvious performance gap between what I can do and how I’m performing on the day.
I have no clue what to do next.
Do I either say bye to GMAT and study overseas and focus on studying for a part time MBA in the UK?
Resit at end of December?
Throw money at the problem? Though it looks like my problem is exam anxiety. How do you sort that?
Or take business schools at their word that GMAT is just one piece of information?
