Gmat estimate 400

Hi,

just made a "mini-gmat" online and got the estimate of 400. Is there much improvement in learning through learning? Did any of you have so little in the beginning?

greeting

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Such tests are not conclusive in my opinion. Take a look at quant basics for a day (geometry, combinatorics formulas, etc.) and then do an official test test, then you can see where you stand

Re: Gmat estimate 400

What does mini gmat mean? So not one from MBA.com?

Never heard of a ne 400. Or even a 4 in front.

Re: Gmat estimate 400

No, it wasn't from mba.com, but from the hult website. I have to admit that I am a little shocked. Come from a target university with vss. 1.7 Bachelor. Doesn't mean that I'm intellectually special, but 400 sounds like brain dead.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

jo 400 is brain dead. Just do an official sample test. That should then give away 550. 100-150 points can be "easily" added by learning.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Has really nothing to say. My first test was also around 590, with a little learning it was 730 at the end. Just had a bad day and at first couldn't cope with the strange format of the English questions.

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Is it possible to do a (shortened) trial test at mba.com? I don't find anything right away.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

you can download the GMATprep program. There are two trial tests and a few practical exercises. Just hit Google. Is then the same as the first or second result.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

There is no shortened official version. But that's also nonsense, you'd better take more hours then you really know where you stand

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

At the beginning I had a 440 in the prep test. After several months of intensive study, I came to 630.
With my cut, I'm also among the top 10% of my university, etc.
So don't let yourself be persuaded that the test can be taken with the left hand.
Scores> 700 are in the 90% percentile, and apparently only these people hang around here, so this forum has a certain bias.

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Thanks for the tips and motivating posts. Funny that this surprises me so positively :)

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

So most of the people I know scored around 600-650 in the first test test. I guess that Mini GMAT you did there wasn't particularly representative. As with the TOEFL, German students traditionally do better than the average in the GMAT, since such tests are also taken by students from many countries with weaker educational systems.

For this reason, it is usually not a major problem to get into the top 10% of test participants (700+), don't let the post here discourage you.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

I can not confirm this. First, the German average is 570 (after learning). Second, I know a lot of people, also with a good 1-cut at a good university, who had problems, especially because they were maybe good at quant or verbal but not both. Good scores in gmat are no magic, especially if you are analytical and have time to learn, but that it is not a problem to write 700+ is a gross exaggeration.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Here again some are trying to make the GMAT unnecessarily difficult so that their own score doesn't look too bad. Everyone who can have realistic hopes for admission to a target university creates 700+ with learning.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

No, nobody here is trying to make anything difficult to talk about, but 700 points simply correspond to the 90% percentile. To be among the top 10% of the test takers, of course, is done in passing.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

"Everyone" manages over 600, but over 700 is tough. Anyone who says otherwise is a troll.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Sorry, but either only FH people are running around here or you are surrounded by the wrong people. 700 is nothing unearthly, and many of us have stayed with us with mediocre grades and without excessive study effort.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

I come from a target university, my GMAT is over 700. From my year I know three others with such a score, all of the top people of the year, and all of them went to LSE, LBS, etc. for the master’s degree in the end. I know more than a dozen people in the 600 range, including people who have now ended up at McK, BCG, ... and some of them are among the best of the year. It is clearly the majority, and I can guarantee you that they also buffeted for it. There is a reason that HR professionals, especially at UB, etc., find such a score awesome.

The thing is of course not a pure intelligence test, but as described so beautifully in another topic, I also think that there is a natural limit. The difficulty with the quant part is not the level of mathematics, but to understand the combination of the concepts perfectly under time pressure. What exactly do you want to learn there?

Either you have never taken the test or you want to credit yourself with your own lousy score with the excuse that you had just done nothing and otherwise easily grabbed 700. Can't explain this nonsense to me otherwise ...

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Then maybe you just surround yourself with people who are good at standardized tests. I know many who are top 10% in terms of grades, but 700+ only manage half of them

"Either you have never done the test or you just want to credit yourself with your own lousy score with the excuse that you simply hadn't done anything and otherwise easily grabbed 700. Can't explain this nonsense to me otherwise ..."

I scored well over 700 and that's why I'm trying to make it right here that there is nothing blatant about it. If it helps, write me your email address and I will send you my score report anonymously. Most people hyped the GMAT excessively because they hope to be able to significantly upgrade their profile by attaching more importance to the GMAT, nothing more.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

If you don't have a knack for analytical thinking, no matter how much you learn, you can't achieve very good scores.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

Well, again: why do 90% not make it over 700 if everyone can easily handle it with buffalo?

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

I think my first test test only yielded 450, but I hadn't prepared myself at all.

My recommendation would be to look at all of the content for 1-2 weeks and familiarize yourself with the questions. Magoosh also has a few good videos on this, for example, which are free in the trial account. (If you are interested in a premium account, let me know, mine is still active)

After that, I would do an official test, then you will definitely end up in the 500 range at least. On "Beat the GMAT" you will also find very detailed information about strategies etc.

In the end I had a score of 640. With more practice, a high 600 score would have been possible. For 700+, however, I would probably have had to deal with it a lot longer, because my math skills are just not that strong. Even if some portray it that way - 700+ is nothing that you (usually) shake off your sleeve.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

700+ is not impossible for a solid German business student, but it is not feasible either. In the MMM, the average is 680, so even in this top program not even half have 700+.
With at least 1 month of preparation, however, 600+, and certainly more, should be feasible.

reply

Re: Gmat estimate 400

You need to know that this forum has an extreme bias.
The article about with (with a 640 score) reflects reality much better than the 2-week learner and 700 scorer.

The elite University of Oxford receives a record donation of almost 170 million euros from US billionaire and Blackstone CEO Stephen A. Schwarzman. Oxford University announces unprecedented investment in the humanities and an institute for ethics in artificial intelligence (AI). In order to conduct interdisciplinary research, the departments of history, linguistics, philology and phonetics, languages, music, philosophy, theology and religion are brought together.

The International Student Identity Card - ISIC for short - is the only student ID that is recognized worldwide. With the card, students receive discounts in over 132 countries around the globe. The international student ID has been around for 60 years.

The current IEC Study Guide 2019 will help you for a semester abroad or to study abroad. Prospective students can find helpful tips on 120 universities in more than 20 countries in the free study guide for studying abroad. Questions about financing, application, grade recognition, university rankings, study countries and partner universities are answered in detail.

Anyone who wants or has to prove their knowledge of foreign languages ​​in a student or professional environment will sooner or later not get around an official language certificate. However, it is not always easy to find the flood of information on the subjects of "language tests", "language exams" and "language diplomas". If you want to take a language certificate, you should first find out exactly which proof is required in the specific case and how you can best prepare for the respective language exam.

A year abroad can have many incentives, better language skills, the desire to develop personally or simply the desire to travel. Regardless of whether it is a student exchange, language trip, au pair stay, internship abroad or study abroad, in a global world of work, career opportunities increase with every experience abroad.

Studying abroad or a semester abroad can be expensive. Saving the change you need for this can be done through part-time jobs or the parental allowance. However, the savings are often far from being sufficient. There are numerous options in Germany for financing your studies abroad. Auslandsbafög, education loans, scholarships, Erasmus & Co - WiWi-TReFF shows what support there is.

Whether greater self-confidence or increased language skills: a stay abroad during your studies ensures improvement in many areas. Children from non-academic families perceive this effect to be even more pronounced in certain areas. This is shown by an analysis by the CHE Center for University Development.

In 2015, almost 140,000 German students were enrolled to study abroad. The most popular host countries include Austria, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Popular destinations for short semesters abroad are Great Britain, the USA, France and Spain. Currently, more than a third of all students spend part of their studies abroad. In 2017, more than 355,000 foreign students were enrolled at German universities for the first time.

More and more German students want to study internationally: In 2014 137,000 students went abroad. The neighboring country Austria is the most popular, followed by the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Business students are particularly drawn to the Netherlands.

The goal of learning a language intensively and up close is a great side effect of studying abroad. But before the acceptance at a foreign university is successful, prospective students must first prove whether they already speak the language. The six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​(GES) provide information about the extent to which the understanding of a foreign language is sufficient. For this purpose, various language certificates have been developed that are recognized by universities, companies and other institutions for applications. Depending on which country comes into question, a certificate in TOEFL, IELTS, DELF, DALF or DELE must be proven.

The university rectors from Germany and Great Britain expect devastating consequences for studies and research after a possible Brexit. The EU makes it easier for researchers to work together, share resources and share important data. Students from both countries also benefit from this. There are currently 13,765 degree-seeking students and 4,428 Erasmus students from Germany in Great Britain.

English master’s courses are in great demand among companies and business students. A business master's abroad helps to orientate the course internationally. Native-speaking master’s programs such as those at Griffith College Dublin in Ireland impart excellent knowledge of English in addition to economic content.
