Hi,

I just got an overall score of 750 on the Kaplan Free Diagnostic test (CAT). Although the sectional scores are not mentioned on the dashboard, I see 98% for quant and 83% for verbal. However, what makes me believe that these scores are "highly" skewed is that the number of questions in verbal that I incorrectly answered are about 20 out of 41 which is greater than 50% !! Has anyone who's given the test recently seen any such anomaly with the scores? Can someone from Kaplan please explain this?

Thanks!

Hey I just finished with my Kaplan CAT1 (Diagnostic) and was totally surprised. A similar thing happened with me as well. I scored 760 (Q51, V39) and I am totally baffled by my verbal score. 19/41 questions were wrong. Also 51 and 39 make a 740 and not 760. Even I feel that the scores are highly skewed.

I know this is deviating off topic a lil but i didnt know where else to post

first twenty questions only 2 are wrong No string of errors

Ugh
