Hi,

I took verbal tests on gmat club and I see a percentile score of 99% for both the tests. I got 30 correct on the first one and and 32 on the second one. Both tests had mostly 700 level questions and it was quite tough. I wanted to understand whether is a reasonable representation of my performance. I have been average 41-42 on GMAT prep and MGMAT as well. Please let me know.

I was going to post on this exact same topic. I just took the free GMAT club verbal test and got 99% and a perfect raw score of 51. I missed 4 questions, all at the 700 level. There were only ten 700 level questions on the entire exam. There's no way this scoring is accurate or indicative of the actual GMAT.

I'm disappointed since I was thinking of purchasing a subscription.

I got 99% on GMAT Club Verbal, but ended up with 28 on actual GMAT. A shocker!

I don't think GMATClub tests have the percentiles optimized yet. I don't think they advertised it as accurate either. So, its kind of unfair to be blaming them for it.

On a positive note, I would say they are really good questions. You should look deeper into the questions you got wrong and work on those. In fact I think their GMAT Club tests for QUANT is out of the world and main contributor to my 50 score on actual GMAT.

In terms of difficulty vs the actual GMAT..how would you compare GMAT Club test questions vs the actual test? It seems that the tough questions are significantly more difficult than the questions in the official material (OG 13 and OG Quant review). I took a GMAT Club tests a couple weeks ago and scored quiete low compared to a manhattan CAT i took (it was something like Q31 vs Q47)
