Is a Q50 possible with 9 incorrect answers? I got 9 incorrect in the quant section in GMATPrep and still got a 50. Looked a little odd to me.

Yeah I would say this could still be possible, I've seen 11 wrong answers get a 49 and 7 wrong get a 50. So that is right down the middle. The scoring is a mystery best left to the computer to solve, but based on the points and value of the more important questions, it is certainly possible to still pull off a good score with 9 quant questions wrong.

It's best to leave the scoring to the algorithm. In fact, I would go as far as saying that it's none of test takers business

The aim must be to give every question your best.

I second Entwistle. While it is possible to get a 50 even with 12 incorrect, provided you get only the experimental questions incorrect.

Anyway, you do you want to get bogged down with such things. You have 37 and 41 questions in front of you. Just NAIL them!!
