I took my GMAT few days back. Got a dismal score of 640 (q-49, v-29). I have a question abou the math section score. I have heard that there is a heavy penalty for leaving the question unanswered. I ran out of time in math section and was stupid to leave the last question unanswered. I just found the answer but before I could click my answer the time was over. My question is how much would I have scored had I clicked the correct answer for the last question? Could it have been 51?

Hi there,

First, 49 is a good score for math, considering what people have been saying. I took the GMAT last month and ran out of time during math. I scored a 47 after I wildly guessed the last five questions. I thought I had done much much worse. I have also heard that leaving a question blank counts more against you than filling it in. But by how much, I am not sure!!

I believe that the first portion of the test counts much more than the last part. I think (I could be wrong) that you may score the most 1 pt on your last question, so it would bring it up to 50, not 51. However, the way ETS does its tricks, I doubt that anyone really can figure know for sure. For your last question might have been an experimental one!!!
