gmat club verbal tests - percentile calculation [#permalink] New post 30 Jul 2009, 19:35
I have taken 4 out of 6 verbal tests. Scores given below:

Test Correct Total % Correct Mean time Percentile
v01 25 41 61% 90.7115 sec 34%
v02 28 41 68% 83.5193 sec 50%
v03 31 41 76% 77.8570 sec 50%
v06 30 41 73% 78.9685 sec 43%

I am not sure how the percentile is calculated. I scored 31/41 in v03 and my percentile is 50%. I am thoroughly disappointed. Does it refer the percentile the actual exam calculates? Anyways, I took the exams just for practice and I am more interested in the no of correct questions.

Coming to the exams. I didn't like the exam design. Either you get a series of Sentence correction questions or end up seeing 3-4 CR questions in a row. I got a RC passage only at question 14. It's definitely weird. Also, the SC questions mostly test only one area. It is many a time easy to guess. Still I made lot of mistakes owing to my poor performance in SC. CR questions look artificial to me. Some of them are too easy and few others have complicated answer choices.

Anyways, I like the interface since it looks closer to gmatprep. I am using these exams to get the feel of actual gmat visually :)

Cheers,
Sid

The percentile scores we have in GMAT Club Tests are in no way related to the percentiles calculated in the REAL GMAT. The percentiles you see in our Tests are given in order to understand where you stand compared to other people who took the same test. Don't regard GMAT Club Tests percentile score as you would the percentiles of the Real GMAT score.

Here are the couple of links you should check out:

result-correlation-between-gmat-and-gmat-club-s-tests-30989.html?view-post=565004#p565004
result-correlation-between-gmat-and-gmat-club-s-tests-30989.html?view-post=593633#p593633

Don't let these percentile scores discourage you during the prep process. Think of GMAT Club Tests as only practice materials, as sid82 pointed out.

Hope this helps in your preparation.
