Problem with the new GMAT Prep in calculating my score?? [#permalink] New post 08 May 2012, 20:53
i recently downloaded the new GMAT Prep and im having troubles generating my overall score. I've had to keep ending the exam prematurely (in order to save it) until the very last question in Verbal for it to calculate my scores. Prior to that, it (GMAT Prep) literally spent a day calculating my scores and i had to kill the task and start the verbal from scratch.

The problem is, it gave me a score of 200 although i got a 16 questions wrong in quantitive and 13 questions in verbal wrong. Can this score be legitimate??? I did the actual exam 4 weeks ago and scored a 590.

It might be worthwhile mentioning that i just breezed through the integrated reasoning since i'll be doing the exam before June 5th and got 11/12 questions wrong in that segment. Could my low overall score be attributed to the low integrated reasoning score??

Please help!!
Many thanks in advance.

Yeah there was a bug in the scoring. Try downloading the new version of [url=https://www.gmatpill.com/gmat-prep-about-the-gmat/degmac-releases-gmat-prep-20-software-integrated-reasoningengmac-releases-gmat-prep-20-software-integrated-reasoningzhgmac-releases-gmat-prep-20-software-integrated-reasoning/]GMATPrep 2.0 here
[/url]

Your actual Q+V score out of 800 shouldn't have been wrong - but best way to know is to use the most recent version of the software. There is no partial credit on Integrated Reasoning. So even if you got some right..you might only get a very low score because not all parts of the question were answered correctly.
