I don't mean to rub it in, but not completing the section drops your score by around 3% percentile. You could have scored well over 750 if you had completed.

are you sure its 3%tile I remember reading somewhere that its 1.5% or something. If its 3%tile, then its a lot. You miss 3-4 questions in the entire test and you're screwed!!!

It happened to me on MGMAT-3, I couldn't complete the last quant question in time and my score dropped from 94 percentile to 91 percentile. I wound up with a 750.

I was also reading somewhere that its 3 percentile. If you run out of time on either section and have 4-5 questions left, yes you are hosed.

Give me kudos if you like my post!

Let's face the facts though, if you go through the GMAT and leave 4-5 questions, you obviously didn't dedicate the time to taking this test seriously. The GMAT is not supposed to be a walk in the park, its a grueling grinding experience of getting 3 months of studying done leading up to 4 hours that determine whether you end up at Harvard or University of Tampa (not that there is anything wrong with Tampa, I love the city, just making a point). IF you don't want to tank the test don't leave out 4 questions. 1 or 2 questions is heard of and an honest mistake, so by no means am I saying anything to offend the author of this topic, clearly his given situation is different as he still managed to score as high as he did. Just the facts.
