Hi guys, I noticed the following after taking GMATPrep twice:
GMATPrep 1: Q43 - 13 incorrect
GMATPrep 1 retake: Q47 - 14 incorrect
Why is it that my quant score is higher, even though I had more incorrect answers? Is it because I got more difficult questions right during the second time? Is there any experimental question in GMATPrep?
There are 3 things:
1. Questions of different difficulty are scored differently
2. More mistakes early on in the test will yield lower score
3. Experimental questions do not count
If you want to dig into it, see these threads for details:
