Verbal 51!I am awaken [#permalink] New post 28 Sep 2010, 11:08
Hi.I just wanted to share this with you all...Its 12.45 am here in India and i am about to sleep after my study session till i saw this-
i-m-really-finished-this-time-780-q50-v51-awa-6-0-updated-35190.html
maybe-next-time-790-51q-51v-91310.html

Boy o boy my sleep actually is gone.I have seen people getting 50/51 on Quant but 51 on Verbal,All SC,CR even RC correct....SO hard to digest.....i have never crossed 40 in any of my mocks...always between 32-40 but this is unbelievable!

So for all future gmat takers anything is possible.....even 800? :?:

Pelihu's debrief is very inspirational, in many ways. He also had a background in law, I think. So a part of that phenomenal score might be attributed to his awesome way with words :)

im not 100% sure of how the GMAT is graded (then again, who is?), but i dont think you necessarily have to get all questions correct to get a V51. remember there are random questions interspersed which are experimental/ungraded

This is depressing.

The max I ever got in verbal was 31 when I took the gmat prep before I started preparation. Since then Im just going downhill.

In other words, I think it is still OK to answer 40 out of 41 :wink:

ShadowsJC is correct - there are indeed experimental questions and I do think you can miss a question or two and still get to the top...

its really a matter luck if you lose questions only from the experimental pool. People feel they have underperformed but in reality they score better than expected.

:-D D-Day

Hi suyashjhawar,

Congrats on really conquering the GMAT and providing a detailed debrief. I am sure your LSAT and Law background helped a great deal in the score. But it does show that commitment & desire can lead one to the right scores. Mine is a 760 and I visualize that result everyday.

have fun.

When I took my GMAT Prep, I finished Quant with 27 minutes to spare and Verbal with 23. But with verbal my work shift had ended and I had to log out because the next guy had come. I ended up with 49Q 38V. Not so bad :D
