GMAT Prep Exam 1 and 2: verbal way lower on second attempt [#permalink] New post 19 Jun 2014, 10:59
Folks, I'm writing the GMAT in a couple of days and I just wrote my second GMAT Prep exam with a disappointing result.

First exam:
640
Q43, V35
Q: 15 incorrect
V: 13 incorrect

Second exam:
560
Q40, V27
Q: 16 incorrect
V: 11 incorrect

I am really confused as to what happened to my verbal score on the second exam with less questions incorrect compared to the first. I know that it is adaptive so maybe the only explanation is those that I got wrong are "easy" questions. But the largest string of questions wrong in a row was 4, from Question 22-25, and only 2 incorrect after that (Question 29 and 35). I also got 4/6 wrong on the first 6 questions, and then Question 12 wrong.

I'm not trying to decode the algorithm but I still feel like it doesn't make sense. I was really hoping to stay in the 630-650 range and now this has completely sidetracked me with two days before my exam. Any thoughts or possible explanations?

Thanks
T.

I think you answered your own question -- the 4 out of the first 6 wrong is likely what hurt your score the most.
