I'm not precisely sure what you're asking, but the balance of easy, medium and hard questions will differ from test to test anyway, so if you're asking "when someone gets a Q51, how many easy questions do they see?", there is no exact answer to that question.

I assume there might be a range if not precise

Hi Anirudddh,

Many Test Takers become too fixated on the 'implied level' of the questions that they're working on - instead of what really matters: defining WHY they're getting questions wrong and becoming more efficient at approaching the overall Exam. It's also worth noting that just because a 3rd party describes a question as a certain "level" (for example: "700 level") does not necessarily make it so.

Since I assume that you're ultimately looking to improve your Test-taking skills so that you can score higher, before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, 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?
2) What study materials have you used so far?
3) How have you scored on EACH of your CATs/mocks (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for EACH)?

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

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

Hi Anirudddh,

I agree with much of what has been said. You are not going to get a definitive answer to your question. Additionally, if you really are trying to earn a 99th-percentile or perfect GMAT score, then you will need to dominate GMAT quant and verbal on test day. Thus, rather than wasting any more time trying to determine the difficulty breakdown on a given GMAT, focus your energy on improving your skills.

You may find it helpful to read this article about how to score a 700+ on the GMAT

If you’d like further advice, feel free to reach out. Good luck!

Hi Aniruddh,

I would like to add my two cents.
If you have seen ESR's of the top scorers here(like that of souvik101990, for example - or you search this forum for ESR), you will observe that the average difficulty of questions presented to a candidate is medium high and goes to on increasing towards high (as candidate with perfect score keeps getting every answer correct). And thus there will almost be no single question with difficulty level 'EASY'. Even if candidate gets a question or two wrong, the next question will be either of same difficulty level (high) or just... just below that (i.e. medium high or medium) - but ultimately no question of difficulty level 'EASY'.

Having said, what I learnt, I agree with what experts have said here - focusing and engaging one's energies on studies and getting everything correct is best way to get a high score.

Hope this helps.
Please press kudos, if this has helped you in any possible way.

Hi All
Thanks for the reply

This question/thread has got nothing to do with my preparation or anyone's preparation. It's just to know the maximum number of hard questions in a GMAT test and that can be only found out from ESRs of Q51 and V51.

Hi Aniruddh, there aren't too many such ESRs present, for us to perform a meaningful statistical analysis :)

You may find this useful. Here are few ESR of people who scored Q50/Q51.
To be more specific look for the bottom half part of ESR for quant section and subsection AVERAGE DIFFICULTY
