Are math questions getting harder on GMAT? [#permalink] New post 16 Dec 2009, 01:23
Hello guys

I recently got a 560 in the GMAT (Q43/V25).
I was scoring about 46 on GMATPrep and scoring a percentile of 60% on GMATClub's tests (the same percentile as some people here having the Q score from 45 to 48 on actual GMAT).

But I scored 43 :cry:

I noticed that some questions were way more difficult than I experienced on other prep tests (such as Kaplan and GMATPrep).

Have someone experienced the same with the actual GMAT recently?

This might answer your question.

Retrieved from the November 24, 2009 post on Manhattan GMAT blog

"For the first time, non-U.S. citizens (135,105) outnumbered U.S. test-takers (130,508). This is likely because of the increasing adoption of the GMAT by international business schools, which are themselves increasing in number. If historical trends continue, this may continue to skew the GMAT’s math curve up (a subset of international applicants tends to be very good at math) and the verbal curve down (a subset of international applicants tends to be poor at verbal)."
