Converting Questions answered correctly to scaled score [#permalink] New post 09 Aug 2010, 16:11
Does anyone have any idea how to roughly map number of questions answered correctly to quantitative scaled score?

e.g. (just for example, not actual values)
51 - 35-37 answered correctly
50 - 34-36 answered correctly
49 - 30-35
etc.

Is there anyway to approximate this information (do they tell you the number of questions answered correctly after completing the test?), or does anyone have a general guideline?

Thanks!

Hi


There is no exact relation between the number of questions you get correct and the final score


They don't tell us the number of questions we get correct


As a GMAT instructor, I would suggest that try and get your initial questions correct to get a high score.

Sorry - can't do. There are experimental questions and also questions of various difficulty. I have seen reports of people getting 50 with 9 incorrectly answered math questions...
