See the PDF here:

gmat-myths-from-gmac-conference-55310.html

Page 16.

5 missed questions results in a ~15% drop in percentile scores.

As someone else said: YOU MUST FINISH.

Hi.. What happened in my exam was, i was at the last question and i selected an option. But i couldn't confirm it as i ran out of time. Would my score have been affected by that or since i marked an answer will GMAT consider that as my response?

P.S. I am just asking this question out of curiosity.

My understanding is that it would not have counted as a response, and would have impacted your score. Although the degree of impact is variable and depends on a range of factors.

I have heard that there is a penalty for leaving a question unanswered. Wht is the penalty? I mean, how does it affect the score if a question is unanswered vs it is wrong?

Have you tried running this scenario in GMATPrep software?

In my GMAT Prep test (5 weeks ago), I had 2 wrong (#24 and #36) until the last question in Quant, and the section timed out while I was still in #37. I got Q50.

I know for a fact that the mock/practice CAT from MGMAT etc. incorporate the penalty feature for unanswered questions. What I'd like to know is how closely does it resemble the one on the actual GMAT?

Hello guys. I know I did a mistake but I were focusing on the question and so I didn't see that I had only 2 seconds to answer, and so that's why I left my final question unanswered. Next time I will be more focused on the time left form my final question.

I scored 640, 41Q 36V. What do you think I would have taken with a random last answer?

Thank you very much for the answer and all the infos i got through you beautiful forum
Ciao
Ale
