Hi Guys,

I have been reading a lot on GMAT Club. I have given the following tests - GMAT Prep1 ->650 (Quant Right - 24, Wrong-13) (Verbal Right - 24 Wrong -17)
GMATPrep2 ->700 (Quant Right - 28, Wrong-9) (Verbal Right - 27 Wrong -14).

After some preparation, I gave Economist GMAT Test few days back. HI got 640 (Quant Right - 27, Wrong-10) (Verbal Right - 29 Wrong -12). Economist GMAT Test brought the moral down. Shoud I be worried? Or the test is really worried. Throughout the test, it went well. I even had time left and based on the GMATPrep, I thought I would score well above 700.

Hi there,

I would not be too worried if I were you. A score can dip from one exam to another even with the same amount of knowledge or the same percentage of correct/incorrect. The GMAT scoring algorithm takes many factors into account including where you make errors, how many mistakes you commit in a row, whether you finish both sections or leave questions out, whether the last few questions of either section seemed like they were guessed at, how you felt on test day, etc. These factors can all affect your score.

From one test to the next you can easily jump +/- 30 points (and even up to 80 or so) depending on where the mistakes are made. *Where* you make mistakes can often be more important than how many. Overall, when a student wants to know where he/she stands, the best way to do so is to take the average after a few sim tests. This should get you to a fairly close estimation of where you are at.

Regards,

Elizabeth

Economist Simulation Exams do NOT give good approximation of scores.
