I gave my GRE on 28th of June and scored 1250.I was targeting above 1300 and the result disappoints me totally. The reason is that In all my practice tests i constantly scored above 750 in Quants and above 500 in Verbal.
So I was expecting the same range of score in the actual GRE as well.But in my actual GRE i just scored 650 in Quants and 600 in Verbal.This made me totally dejected.The hard work i put on Verbal didn’t get wasted and i got the price for that. I had an improvement of 100 marks in Verbal which i didn’t expect at all.
But this 100 mark increase in Verbal didn’t made me joyful because of the low Quants score. The only reason for the decrease in Quants score is the over confidence i had in myself and this made me to take the Quants section light.
Finally I had paid the price for the over confidence.I was hopeless of getting an admit in some decent universities with this GRE.
I don’t have an other chance to prove myself in the same pattern.I was in a confused state whether to take the GRE again in the new pattern or to apply to universities with the same score.
So HSB please help me out in this.
I have no idea of what to do. Shall i apply to the universities with the same score or shall i take the new GRE once again for the improvement?
I have a CGPA of 9.01/10 and one among the top 10% of the highly scored student in my class.
I want to apply for CS in the following universities:
- Ohio state university
- Oregon state university
- Arizona state university
- University of Utah.
