I thought that 60 is maximum.. and people clearly score 51-52. I was concerned bc if you get 50, even though the problems are hard, you still make mistakes, around 6-7! And I am sure that those can be eliminated.
Ok so basically the advice is to stick OG, and hope to get the same result (around 50) at the actual test
I haven't heard of anyone scoring more than 51 in either one of the sections in GMAT. If you get 51 in both sections, you get a score of 800 i.e. perfect score. The scores of 52-60 are probably reserved for future use by GMAC (when the test gets tougher and the candidates get even smarter!)
By the way, you can get a 51 even if you make some mistakes. Say, you make some silly mistake in a calculation and answer an easy question incorrectly. After a while, the software will realize that the error was an aberration since you are obviously smarter (after you answer some higher level questions correctly). So that error will be ignored. Also, if the questions you answer incorrectly are super hard but you answer some other super hard questions correctly, you could still get Q51.
