A little surprised by GMAT official mock test#2 quant score  [#permalink]

Hi everybody
I am Sneha and I have been preparing for GMAT for the last couple of months. I gave my second mock test today and scored 660 ( Q 48 V 33) I am a little baffled given that I scored in the 30s in the last mock test which I took. 1.5 months back

Q 39 V 35(620)- Q 13 incorrect V 13 incorrect

Although I have worked on my quant skills post that, I can't believe I got a 48. Just wanted to know if this wasn't a technical glitch, given that the test kept freezing after a few questions and I had to close the screen and login again to resume the test so wanted to ensure this isn't an anomaly given that I got 13 questions incorrect in the quant section and I also felt like I was bombing while I was giving the quant section. Looking forward to hearing from you fellow GMAT assassins! I am giving my GMAT next Thursday hence *jitters max
I went through a few blogs but couldn't find answers. Would appreciate some guidance here.


Score 660 ( 78 %ile)
Quant: 48( 69%ile) 11 incorrect

Verbal 33(60%ile) 14 incorrect

Hello Sneha and welcome to GMATClub.

I guess your question is even though you got only 2 less incorrect questions but still you got a score of 48. OR you are confused about your score of Quant itself?

I believe Q48 is a great score and is not a bad score by any means. I would take anything between 48 to 51.
Since you are so close to exam I suggest you just focus on overall accuracy and focus on getting consecutive questions correct (specially initial 10).

Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Yes I wanted to know if it is possible to get so many incorrect and yet get 48? That is my question. Sorry if I wasn't clear earlier

Yes. It is. Because it totally depends on what questions you get wrong and how you get them wrong?

If you keep answering right questions and get a question wrong here and there that is better than getting 5 straight incorrect. That's One.

Second, it depends on the weight age of the question too.

I don't think you should be worried about anything apart from your accuracy in Quant and Let the algorithm do it's job

Well, You deserve a Pat on the back for putting enough hard work to make this happen.!

Don't worry about the algorithm. Keep your accuracy and focus high.

All the best and do post your actual score/exam experience when you're done.

Hi aiyersneha,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. To reiterate, your GMAT score is based on not only the number of questions you answer correct/incorrect, but also the difficulty of those questions, among other things. Thus, I don’t think that Q48 was from a glitch.

Once you take your next practice exam, feel free to report back here, and I can provide some further advice. Good luck!

Hi guys, I gave my GMAT today and got 690, q 48 v 38
Q 67%ile and V 85 %ile overall 85 %ile.
Plan to take the GMAT again the end of this month to improve quant and IR score. Wanted to know what steps I can take and how much improvement I can expect in this time period and what steps I can take to improve from 48 to let's say a 49 or 50. I am taking a study break for the next ten days. Thanks for all the help. This was my first attempt and I scored exactly the same score as my last mock! :)

Hi Sneha,

First off, a 690/Q49 is a fantastic Score, so it could be enough to get you into your first-choice School. As such, a retest might not be necessary. Depending on the Schools that you plan to apply to, you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/

There's no harm in continuing to study though - and you have the potential to pick up points in BOTH the Quant and Verbal sections. From your last post, your timeframe is not clear though. You stated that you want to retake the GMAT at the end of the month, BUT you also stated that you plan to take the next 10 days off from your studies. Are you planning to retake the GMAT at the end of DECEMBER?

In addition, before we discuss how you might best approach this next phase of your studies, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

Studies:
1) How long have you studied? How many hours do you typically study each week?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) On what dates did you take EACH of your CATs/mocks and how did you score on EACH (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

Goals:
4) What is your overall goal score?
5) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
6) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

You might also choose to purchase the Enhanced Score Report. While the ESR doesn’t provide a lot of information, there are usually a few data points that we can use to define what went wrong on Test Day (and what you should work on to score higher). If you purchase the ESR, then I'll be happy to analyze it for you.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
