Today i got gmatprep2

my score was Q49 with 6 incorrect answer.

4th,12th,14th,17th,20th,34th questions were wrong. As you can see they are not in row and 5 of them is 700+ question. So how i could get Q50 with 8 incrrect and can not with 6th?

i didnt do more then 1 wrong in 10. I didnt do wrongs in row. So what is the explanation beneath this.

12,14,17 might have dropped your level a little lower than you desired. Not sure though, it is a mysterious algorithim after all! Do not stress out about it, just focus on improving for D-DAY!

it happens all the time man... i had more than that before and still got 48 while 2 wrong netted me same result. You learn to not go by correct/incorrect anymore and just try to get everything right. it is also not a good idea to "guess" if the problem is supposed to be hard or not...

Don't try to understand the algorithm of the GMAT. This is a protected secret of the GMAC.

I really think that you should stop trying to crack the algorithm. I've noticed a lot of your posts and instead of focusing on where you're going wrong and trying to improve your preparation, you are more concerned with manipulating or understanding how the GMAT grades you. I'd suggest that you try to change this mentality and focus on getting your mistakes corrected.
