Dear all

I just finished my GMAT journey today with 680 (Q45,V38), but I still can't believe my IR score of 8 (93%). As i didn't care about IR I spent limited energy on solving the problems. The types of questions that were time consuming I skipped by randomly guessing. I guessed 5 questions and also answered at least 3/4 without being sure the answer is correct.
How could this happen?? Any ideas????

You can get entire questions wrong -- 2 or 3 --and still end up scoring an 8/8. There is no partial credit -- maybe you guessed well. Maybe the ones you did get wrong were all concentrated in one or two questions -- and the others were fine.

Well, can't complain, right?
