I had to guess the last 10 questions for both math and verbal - yea I know I'm an idiot.

Since I had to randomly guess the last 10 of each section, my question is, is it possible to be scoring in the 500 to 600 range leading up to the last 10 questions but could have ended up getting nearly all 20 questions wrong, which resulted in my GMAT score of 400?

In all likelihood, you didn't get all 20 wrong. However, your having guessed on so many means that you were scoring in the 500 to 600 range when time ran out

It's quite easy, human. I guessed last 5 verbal questions of real GMAT and was scored with V35. And it should be exactly around 550 . You are not an idiot cause you avoided penalties for abandonments. Well done.

I guessed on my last 6 questions of Quant and still got a 49. And 49-50 was my level, I was never a 51 guy. So, those last few questions can at most bring your score by 1 point I think.
The bottom line is, work on your timing but improve your skills too.

If that's true, I would have given more time to the questions preceding #31

Well, even if I magically had reached the 51 level when my time started to run out, that's still a 2-point drop. And maybe I did get a couple of those 6 correct, who knows. The important thing is not to leave unanswered questions, wrong answers after the 30th aren't too damaging on Quant. Verbal is a different beast. I think every msitake counts.

Well, there's only a 26% chance that you got all 6 wrong, so yea you probably did get at least one right.

Did you know that the GMAT is based on Murphy's Law?

kidderek, you amaze me. Maybe it's just how you view the world. On a question talking about guessing, you were able to bring up probability and back to quant!!!

26% chance of getting all the remaining questions wrong.

Would that be $$.8^6$$?

Kiderek.....always the teacher
