Hello everyone, I just took the GMAT prep 1 and I have been trying to understand why my score in the quantitative so low
[b][b]- Quantitative: 48 / Percentile: 78% - 9 incorrect (only)[/b][/b]
- Verbal: 24 / percentile: 34% - 19 incorrect

I know that the first 10 questions are important,
I did as wrong question 2, 9, 12, 15, 17, 26, 30, 35 and 36

They are not all at the beginning and furthermore not consecutive on the test,

I used to practice with Kaplan and score Higher percentile score with more wrong answer sometimes consecutives...

Any idea ? is Kaplan relevant ? Is GMAT prep scoring seems you also really tuff regarding the situation ?

Q48 is actually a pretty good score and the difference between 48-51 on Q is minimal. The likelihood is that the questions you got wrong are the higher difficulty ones that would have pushed your score up.

GMAT Prep is the most accurate in terms of predicting your actual GMAT score.

As a goal I aim at least 70% in quant and the very little differences between 78% and 70% freaking me out... Moreover when I see a low score expected with only few wrong answer :/

Is there a big difference between 70 and 78% ?

Thanks

Unfortunately I cannot allay your fears. The difference between 70%-78% is extremely small. It is really not about the number of wrong answers but the level of the questions you got wrong. If you can consistently answer high level questions correctly, you can maintain a high Q score even with a few wrong answers.
