Hello all,
I have query regarding GMAT time management. I generally finish quants section 25 - 30 mins before time. Would it affect my score if I consume 5-10 mins or more on the last question.
In other words, Is time consumed on a question one of the factors that determines the score ?

No, time on a problem does not affect your score.

If you have good speed, make sure you carry accuracy as well.

Gmat quant specially DS is trapped, so be careful.

You are asking a very good question and many have discussed it here a while ago. Most believe that time is not a factor. At least prep companies continue to suggest that guessing gets you result, and that assumes there is no penalty for guessing fast.
