Guys,

I am fairly new to this forum and I would like your input on my questions. I just completed one verbal and two math challenges and I am very confused about my scores and percentile. I have detailed my scores below. I am confused about a 13.6% percentile for M08, which was very difficult, and a 76.1% percentile for V01 after getting 71% correct. Could you help to understand my performance thus far. I am planning on taking the GMAT in two weeks. Finally, how accurate are the verbal challenge tests? I find the structure odd with only three reading comprehension passages and an answer for a sentence correction question that was based on a comma. I found those structures for the verbal section of a GMAT test very odd. Also, are the challenges adaptive?

Test Correct Total Correct % Percentile
m01 26 37 70.3% 59.3%
m08 16 37 43.2% 13.6%
v01 29 41 70.7% 76.1%

grems,

I think a good number of people on this forum have found M08 to be difficult. I remember reading one of buffdaddy's posts where he discussed the difficulty levels of various challenges. I found M06 to be fairly difficult too. I scored around 27-30 in the first 5 and then dropped to 23 in M06.

At the end of it all, just remember that these scores do not reflect your GMAT score. The tests are not adaptive either. They just help you learn new concepts, methods and identify your weaknesses and strengths.

I've done 20 GMATClub quant tests so far and my scores have ranged from 23 - 31. Also the percentile scores range from 25% (for which i scored a 26) to 92% (30).

I also noticed its harder to score upper percentiles in the later tests (m15 +). Maybe most of these test takers are really good at math and thus get this far. I am not sure. I have been using these as practice on timing...thats all

What do you guys think about the verbal challenges? I took the first one and scored a disappointing 29/41 (71%) correct for a percentile of 76%. Do you think the verbal is fairly reflective of the GMAT?

Hi Grems,

i didn't do any verbal challenges, but these threads might be of interest to you.

8-t65044

It all depends on how much time you have. With the limited time I had, I chose not to attempt them. But I surely would have attempted them if I had more time, since more practice the better right!

cheers,
buff
