I dunno. In fact, nobody knows on the real thing - you never get to see which questions you got correct or incorrect. Even on practice tests, when you can see which ones you got wrong, it's hard to determine. The tests are a combination of real and experimental questions. You can have a lot wrong, but if these incorrect questions are experimental, then you still could score well. Also, if you are getting the more difficult questions wrong, then you will score better than someone who is getting the easier problems wrong. Your score will be base not so much on number of questions you get wrong or right than the types of problems you answer correctly (easy to hard).

No, not really. I thought I was doing very well in both sections (ended up with a 710). In fact, I thought I didn't get a single math problem wrong until the last one potentially (I has to guess on that one). However, I obviously got a few wrong since my quant score was 48.

The first time I took the test, I thought I was doing well, but I got a 610. If you read many of the posts in this forum you will find countless test-takers who think they are doing horribly, but come out with a 700+ score.

The moral is that there is really no way of knowing how well you did until you see what you scored. Unless, you find yourself guessing blindly on lots of questions, you might be apt to score not as well. Then again, those questions could be experimental and have no bearing on your overall score.
