Another way to ask to be more specific - if say I score 51 in Quant, what's the minimum I need to score in Verbal to score 750? Or is this score out of 51 in Quant not directly correlated to the score out of 51 needed in Verbal to get to 750?

In other words, does it matter if I got 100% correct in Quant or 90% to get to q51, to determine what's needed for Verbal?

In the end, how does GMAT do the aggregation of the 2 scores - does it look at JUST these scores out of 51 in the 2 sections to come up with the final score out of 800, or does it look at the fine grain details of ones performance in each section, making these numbers out of 51 just some high level percentile indicators?

Thanks.

The relationship is not exact, as some people on these forums report the same score breakdowns, yet have a different overall score.

However, there are quite a few 'score grids' that show what scores in each section combine to overall that are pretty accurate.

This might help.

Great. That helps. Thanks for sharing. So given I can score 51 in the real test as well (fingers crossed!), somehow I need to stretch my verbal score past 40 consistently to see myself somewhere close to, if not, 750. Well.....

Experts,
Somebody posted in the forum that he got 760 (q44, v51). Does that mean these scores are getting better for the same percentile? I would imaging this to be 770+, but that's not the case. Does that mean to get to 750 I need (q51, v42) AT-LEAST?
