I've been pretty open about my GMAT journey on the forums, but today I sat the GMAT and needless to say bombed it, scoring 560 (Q41, V 30).
I took 5 weeks off work in attempt to really push my mark up.
During this time, I reviewed content from MGMAT, made notes from the Economist and MGMAT and completed the majority of the OG 2017. I undertook self-study during this time.
My practice tests during this time were as follows:
Economist GMAT 9th Aug - 460 (32Q, 23V)
Economist GMAT 21st Aug - 620 (41Q, 35V, 3 IR)
Economist GMAT 28 Aug - 380 (6 Q, 38 V, 1 IR) --> no idea how i got 6Q i really don't... and the test glitched on question 3 of IR)
GMAT Prep-2 29th August - 600 (43Q, 30V (skipped IR))
Actual GMAT Exam today 31st Aug - 560 (Q41, V30)
Fucking disheartening as hell but hey I was riding on a miracle to hit the high 600s today.
I'm headed back to work tomorrow but i'm not giving up on this MBA dream, so targeting round 2.
If anyone has any general advice I would greatly appreciate it. I'm quite shattered from this to be honest.
