Hi. I scored 31 in verbal part of economist simulation. I score around 40 in other reliable diagnostic tests. Is it possible to score so low because I took only one section of it? I made just 9 mistakes and neither was in a row.

A score can dip from one exam to another even with the same amount of knowledge or the same percentage of correct/incorrect. The GMAT scoring algorithm takes many factors into account including where you make errors, how many mistakes you commit in a row, whether you finish both sections or leave questions out, whether the last few questions of either section seemed like they were guessed at, how you felt on test day, etc. These factors can all affect your score.

From one test to the next you can easily jump +/- 30 points (and even up to 80 or so) depending on where the mistakes are made. *Where* you make mistakes can often be more important than how many. Overall, when a student wants to know where he/she stands, the best way to do so is to take the average after a few sim tests. This should get you to a fairly close estimation of where you are at.

In general, our students tend to score within about +/- 30 points or so from what they get on our tests and the GMAT test preps.

Hi, I took the Economist CAT via UCLA Anderson site...verbal was very challenging (and, understandably, scaled accordingly). I can see general explanations/approaches for each question, but not for the answers. Each answer has a "an explanation for this answer choice is not available at the moment." Were these explanations ever written up? If so, is there a way to get them? Thanks!
