Hi Folks

I am facing a typical scenario in which I am having a significantly lower score in the CR questions of MGMAT tests compared to those from the OG.

For example in OG I am getting a good 80 to 90 % CR s correct on average whereas in MGMAT I am only hitting somewhere around 60%.

On a closer observation I can feel that many correct answers which can be ruled out as out of scope according to the OG answer pattern are turning out to be in-scope (read the correct) answers.

Does anyone else here faced the same issue and felt the reason which I mentioned here to be the cause of the same? Any comment will be highly appreciated.

PS: This is my first post here so please pardon if I commit some mistake

Thanks
Pinaki

I have not heard this problem before, but this could definitely happen. The OG goes through a wide range of CR questions, all the way from the very easiest to the very hardest. Generally they get tougher the farther you go along. So if you are getting 80% - 90% correct, just remember, a lot of these CR questions might only be seen by the lowest of verbal scorers. When I had my test day, almost all of the CR's were quite challenging b/c I had made my way into the harder bucket of questions.

This may be what has happened with you on the MGMAT CAT tests (which I'm assuming you are referring to). You may only be getting questions from the medium or hard bucket, and therefore you are missing more problems. This is ok though, since getting just 75% of hard quesions right is still doing quite well. So I think you should continue practicing, make sure to go over all your mistakes and understand why you missed them, and you will continue to improve. Don't expect to hit 80-90% on any CAT test, it is just unreasonable because if you are doing that well you will continue to face more challenging problems until your percentage begins to drop.

Best of luck with the rest of your studies
