Correlation between %answers correct and %GMATpercentile [#permalink] New post 11 Sep 2010, 07:15
Hi all,

I'm going to ask an easy (And at the same time difficult) question, and I think that those of you who have achieved a 700+ could answer.

When I should feel prepared to crack the GMAT and get a 700+?

I have already done it and got a 680 (Q50 93%, V32 63%).

From my preparation I can say that I almost have 95-100% of the quantitative answers correct, and 75% of the verbal answers, so it seems like the percentile could correlate (obviously is an approximation) with the % of answers correct, taking into account that during D DAY one usually perform a little bit worse than studying at home.

Any thoughts on that?

Scaled Scores and question level??? [#permalink] New post 11 Sep 2010, 08:21
I feel I should know this but I'll ask it anyway...

For verbal and quant, how are the scaled scores correlated with question level?

For example...

What scaled score for each given section constitutes a 500 level? 600 level? 700 level?

Thanks!

that has some score scaling and info. But the scores is not given per level. the scale is dependent on how often you are at a level. If you are constantly hitting 700s (which means you are getting lots of ques correct) then your score will be scaled high. If you are hitting mostly 500s then it will obviously be lower... I wouldnt worry about something you cant control.... good luck!

The problem is when I know that I have improved enough.

For example, for the Quant section, you can tell me how are you performing (number of answers correct) in the different sources, and I can predict your scaled score, because I do know how well you have to be prepared in order to crack it.

However, I cannot do the same analysis for the verbal section, and that is why I am asking for some insight for those of you who have already crack that verbal monster. (For example, the answer I am expecting for you is something like: "until you don't get a 90% of answers correct in LSAT reading passages, in less than 2 mins per question, you are not going to crack the GMAT...". Obviously it depends on each person, but your guidelines are also very valuable).

Do you know what I mean?

Thanks.

I got it noboru what you are trying to say.Your case quant is not a problem but that does not mean you leave it totally.Since you know your verbal range,i feel the best thing is along with your practice in these forums,try to analyse the questions why they are wrong or correct.The OG explanations etc provided few are left,say OG 10 if you remember all questions of OG 12.Manhattan Verbal Study companion is a great book for verbal.I would recommend as my SC,CR improved.Regarding RC,i feel without practice,it cannot be improved.May be you can take 2 Rc passages per day from LSAT,OG etc.Night before you go to bed,read articles from nytimes.com,nationalgeographic etc wall street journal.When you read,give both the structure,usage as well as the understanding for RC.I am sure you will improve and would come to know when is the right time to give it a shot and become a member of 700 + :-D
