Does the current GMAT remember your last test mistake? [#permalink] New post 15 Jul 2010, 06:21
hi
i heard that if one take the GMAT more the one, the GMAT use information abuot your strength and weakness and use it against you.
for example if in the former test you had foor perfurmans in CR -assemption- then the next test will give you more of that particular issue.
hance 1. you need to be actually better in order to get the same grade because the test is somewhat aiming to your weaknesses and therefor more difficult.
2. one better take the GMAT when he fill that he can reach the bar that he need because if one did not reach the bar, the next time will be harder.
is it true?
does it make sence??
thanks!

Hi and welcome to GMAT Club!

I don't think that's true. The value would be hard to prove. For example, if GMAT knew you were weak in probability, but you brushed up on that this time, so how many probability questions do you get?

Also, this would be unfair towards other applicants and the big message from GMAT is that it is able to accurately evaluate every applicant, not make it harder or fail you (even though it feels that way quite often). If the word came out that GMAT was not fair, schools would drop it and choose GRE instead since they want to be fair and evaluate everyone based on their abilities, not past history...

Pure speculation...

I don't think that is the case. As bb stated, this should be dismissed as gossip. And while I agree that it's always best to perform well on the first try, many members here have improved their scores on the second attempt.
