Is there any benefit of finishing a GMAT section - say Quantitative - before the allowed time? For example, will my score be different in the following two scenarios:

1) I finish the Quantitative section in 60 minutes

2) I finish the Quantitative section in 73 minutes, and all the questions served to me were identical the scenario (1), and my answers were identical as well

There are no points for finishing the test early as far as I know. The link below might be of help.

No, finishing one section early will NOT give you additional time on any other section.

The time per section is for that section ONLY. The clock running out as you select submit or finishing with lots of spare time will not affect your score.

you should not finish your exam early at the cost of accuracy.
All you can do is to relax at the last question and prepare your mind for the next section, or you can draw answer grid for the verbal section.
