What happens if I do not submit the last question ? [#permalink] New post 09 Mar 2013, 19:24
Hi folks and experts,

My test is on 14th March.

Say, you click on the bubble and select an answer choice on your last question of the section but you run out of time before you can hit 'next' and 'confirm'.

1)Would you get the credit for the answer if you had selected the right answer choice?

2)Would you be penalized for not completing the section as you failed to click 'Next' and 'Confirm'?

3)In Verbal, does your score depend on how well you fared on each sections( CR/SC/RC ) independently?

Regards,
Sachin

Hi Sachin,

You have to click next and confirm in order to complete the test and you will get peanalized if you do not. Second, your score on verbal is dependent on your overall performance and not on individual CR, RC, SC sections. All the best for your GMAT..!!


Hope that helps,

I have actually read in a couple of forums and blogs that we aren't penalized by not confirming. It is enough if we just select the answer choice. Stacey Koprince from MGMAT also confirmed this.
So I just wanted a confirmation about this fact.

Also, I do not know if we do get credit for just selecting the right answer choice and not clicking on next and confirm.

If I were you then, even if someone had said that, I personally would not have taken that risk. It is just a matter of seconds. Click next and confirm atleast 10 - 20 seconds before the allotted time finishes. Moreover if you do not confirm the last question, you might still have a doubt that you could have got an extra 10 or 20 points on your score..

Again All the best for your GMAT,

Vercules

Hi Vercules.,

I guess he was asking about a situation where we select an answer choice at the last second and do not have time to click next.. That did happen to me on the quant section... But general consensus seems to be that the question will still count as answered.

Hi Sachin,

I think it will be a good idea to test the scenario of not confirming the last question. I'll conduct two tests on GMATPrep software and try to post the results before your test date in my post - GMAT Prep Software Analysis and What If Scenarios - Verbal

Thanks,
Vercules

Hi Sachin and all,

I tested this scenario on GMATPrep and the result is in line with the general consensus. The question will be considered as attempted, i.e. you will not receive any penalty. Something to cheer about :-)

I have also added the results to post below.
