computing the total GMAT score Question [#permalink] New post 28 Nov 2012, 16:10
I have been taking some GMAT tests in the following way:

a Quant exam one day
and then a Verbal exam on another day but not necessarily this Verbal being the continuation of the previous Quant exam. just a different verbal exam (maybe different company too)

so i receive a score for each one (for example Q48 and V38) and then I use a score calculator such as this one (http://www.800score.com/score2.html) in order to compute my overrall GMAT score

Is that a right way to compute the total GMAT score? Or the verbal part of the exam has to be the continuation of the same exam for which I took the quant part?

(I know it's not the "correct" way to be taking exams one section at a time - this is not my point of this post though)

yes that could be one way to do it. Other , simpler way, is to just put q48 v38 in google and you would be able to find 100s of actual gmat results say 710-720.

That said, however, this approach is not right to assess your level since you are giving only one section at a time let alone giving all 4 sections together.
