600 (38Q, 34V) disappointed, paranoided about the score [#permalink] New post 26 Dec 2007, 18:41
Hi,

I just got back from taking the test. I am very disappointed with the scores, and I am now having some doubts about the accuracy of the scores (aren't we all).

Before I go on, let me say that I have never taken the practice test all at once with the time limit allotted for the breaks. So my practice scores might had been misleading. But the latest 3 times that I took the practice test, my Q scores were 42, 47, 48, and my verbal scores were 39, 42, 44. The weakest part of my verbal was the SC, but I thought that I had improved alot. As a matter of fact, my 1st verbal practice test (without studies) was a 35.

My actual scores were 38Q, 34V. I just don't know how that happened.

I specifically remembered 3 probability/combination questions that I encountered around the 20th question group on the actual test, 1 of which was a DS type question. There was just a ridiculous string of 5-6 DS questions in a row, and several number properties questions at the very end that I guessed. There were also a "union" and "intersect" DS question near the very end. I was so happy to see the probability questions, and I gained so much assurance that my math score would be in the 40's. I was shocked and bewildered to see a 38 math score, because from the practice tests and from others on this forum, those types of questions are hard and they appear only when the scores are high.

I guess I will have to review and take the test and look out for trap questions, but I am still lost trying to explain how I could have seen the probability questions and still scored only 38 on math.

Thats unfortunate.
Were your practice Test from GMAT PREP? IF not your Practice test to GMAT is like apples to oranges.

Additionally, I have been to understand that probability and combination questions are quite a rarity. Some of the 700 Level students, I spoke to don't recall or saw a basic probaility question. It could be possible the you hit experimental questions which were testing 700+ level.

those were the gmatprep scores.

The more I think about it the more I am convinced that the score was wrong. I also remember that there were 2 function problems and 2 symbol problems and one 4x4 table problem (that contains known and unknown values that require 3-4 steps to find the value of the bottom right corner).

Update on the essay score.

I got a score of 5 without spending anytime on it, I did not even attempt to write a practice essay once. I don't think the essays are important at all, I wrote a bunch of drivels, and with half arse sentence construction (with lots of grammar mistake, I am sure). I hope that this info can relieve some people the burden of trying to "study/practice" for the essays. The flaws in the essay questions were fairly obvious.
