If you are completely determined and have done strong preparation, then you should retake GMAT. You have to make a strategy before retaking the GMAT test.
• Analyze what went wrong previous time and try not to repeat them.
You reach the test center in a hurry, hence you were nervous.
You were distracted by other test takers, and hence could not focus on the test.
You were empty stomach and developed a headache and, hence could not focus on the test.
You did badly on time management and hence left some questions unanswered.
You never practiced a full length test, hence 4 hours were a bit too much for you.
You made silly mistakes in calculation.
• Take your next GMAT appointment wisely
See the time you have in hand.
Unless and until you feel you lack preparation don’t delay retaking GMAT by more than 45 days.
You are advised to take the GMAT within 45 days of your previous test because your preparation level will come down.
If you are out of practice for 3-4 months will make you lose interest in GMAT.
• GMAT retaking strategy
Since you have taken the GMAT before, you know what went wrong and where you need to improve.
Take more full length test, 1 every week and 2 in the last week.
If you feel you lack preparation, you should revise fundamental and try to solve difficult problems.
If you do silly calculation mistakes, you should make sure that you should do these questions with better focus by taking 30 minute section tests.
If you did badly on time management, then a full length test is the solution for you.
