What to expect on the Actual Test [#permalink] New post 03 Dec 2009, 09:23
Hello,

I have not taken the actual GMAT test yet, but have taken a number of practice CATs, and I have seen a ride range of difficulty. Two of my recent CAT results are below.

Manhattan GMAT 690
Quant: Missed 18 questions and got a score of 44
Verbal: Missed 16 questions and got a Score of 39

Knewton CAT Practice 640
Quant: Missed 7 Questions and got a score of 42
Verbal: Missed 5 Questions and got a score of 36

What i take from this is overall the Manhattan question were of a much higher difficulty than the Knewton Questions, because I scored higher while missing many more questions.
The frequency of missed question was pretty well distributed on both test (I did not miss a large number of questions in a row).



My question is: What should I expect on the actual test? A larger number of harder questions which a missed question wont significantly hurt my score, or a larger number of easier questions where a missed question can have a large impact?

Or does each test differ so there is no way to know?

Hello gddunton,

You can only use practice tests to estimate you actual test results.

We have an estimator tool that you can use, but please be mindful, this is only an estimate.
