significant improvement in verbal - how is this possble? [#permalink] New post 19 Nov 2012, 11:11
Hello,

I wanted to share my experience about the two Verbal test of Gmat Club i took today, I am still in shock and I think there must be something wrong with the scoring algorithm. However, I wanted to share this.

I woke up 9 am and studied until 2 pm with one 30 minute break, I took my first verbal test on the Gmat Club and scored 24, 35% percentile. Obviously very frustrated i took 3 hour break, went to the gym and came back at 6 pm to take another verbal test. In the second one I scored 45, hence 99 percentile!!!

Result
First test: 15/41 correct 2,4,5,7,8,9,11,12,20, 31,33,34,38,40 and 41
score: 24 = 35 percentile

Second test 28/41 correct 1, 4,5,6,7,10,11,14,15,17,18,20,21,23,24, 28-35 and 36-41
Score: 45 = 99 percentile

My question is: Is this possible?

What are your thoughts?

review the test to check the difficulty level of questions you faced. is it similar for both tests? if yes, i suggest that you go to gym before your actual test too :-D
you literally were pumped up for the test, weren't you? :-D
