I'd request you to share your thoughts (especially if you've taken your GMAT) on the couple of things on IR -
1. There are 12 questions. So, for example say, there's a section of 'Table Analysis' under which there are 3-4 questions against the given table. So, are these three 3-4 qs considered as a whole to be one question among the total 12 questions or each of these 3-4 qs is considered individually as a single question ?
2.As there is no partial credit hence, if I get ONLY 1 of these 3-4 questions wrong and then will the whole 'Table Analysis' section be considered incorrect or only that particular one question which I got wrong, will be considered incorrect ?
Experts - I'd also request you to shed some light on this.
I'm happy to help with this.
Folks typically say there are 12 "questions
" on the IR, but I think this terminology is misleading. I would say --- there are 12 pages
on the IR. There may be, and usually are, multiple questions on a page. There is no partial credit on a page. If several questions appear on the same page, on the same screen, then you must get everything on the page correct to get any credit.
A single MSR page may be
(a) a single five-choice multiple choice question
(b) a chart with three dichotomous choice questions
Notice that scenario (a) on MSR is the only
case in which a single page has only one question. In the case of the chart, you must get every statement on the chart correct to get any credit on the page.
A single TA page typically has a table of three, maybe four, dichotomous choice questions. One must get all questions correct to get any credit on that page.
A single GI page has two sentences with drop-down menus. One must select the correct choice on both drop-down menu to get any credit on the page.
A single 2PA page has a single big two-column chart, and one must make exactly one selection in each column. Both selections must be correct to get any credit on the page.
Does all this make sense?
