Paper test score calculation [#permalink] New post 04 Aug 2010, 15:57
I am a bit confused with this calculation method. I would very very very very much appeareciate if anyone could calculate my section scores for the following results.

SC 14 correct 8 incorrect
CR 15 correct 1 incorrect
RC 13 correct 5 incorrect

PS 14 correct 1 incorrect
PS 15 correct 2 incorrect
DS 18 correct 2 incorrect

Let me further explain what confused me here while calculating my scores. My row scores for each section landed me on 49q for quantitative and 38v for verbal. However, adding up my two row scores and converting them to total scaled score landed me on 690. I have never seen anyone getting 690 with 49q 38v and this confused me.

Efet,

you have probably took either MGMAT or other test. According to GMAT scores sheet you must have max 710 min 700, but some companies intentioanally reduce your scores on their prep tests, either by reducing your scaled score (like MGMAT) or assigning low raw scores (like Kaplan).

Don't worry about that your performance is about 700.
