Scoring does not matter :)

Gave Kaplan Free test today and scored 690( Q46, V41) [ 3 dispersed mistakes in Q and 8 in Verbal]

I found Kaplan test pretty much aligned to the Real Deal but unlike MGMAT I did not find a lot of difficult questions in Kaplan Test.

Moreover, I guess the sectional marking is kind of weird, I scored 46 in Q after 3 mistakes :shock:

Have you folks also faced the same situation ?


Scoring algo is bad!!

670 - Q47 V 38 => 2 mistakes in quant and 12 in verbal.
lol how can they score q47 with 2 mistakes. If any Kaplan representative is reading this, pls let me know the possible reason. Even if I miss the first two easiest questions, I won't score less than 50 or 49.

maybe it depends on the question you got wrong? maybe they were really easy questions so they dock more points?

idk i don't think any of these CAT's really are able to gauge the exact score. the best they can do is estimate. if we knew the algorithm we'd be able to know exactly which questions to answer correct to get the score we want :-)
