Hey GMATbuster92,

Heard your test is in 7 days on the main chat... All the best! I am no expert but here are my two cents -

Your verbal might have tanked way too much for 10 wrong answers because you got 3 of those 10 in the first 8 itself. Now as you know the adaptive CAT begins with easy-medium questions so getting your first question wrong can damage you pretty bad with final score.

One positive could be that you don't have a specific weakness - your # of wrongs are pretty much consistent in all three sections. Now you need to see why you got those specific questions wrong and probably do as many official questions as possible. One trick could be to google each of the wrong questions and try to find it here on gmat club to figure out what level it was. This will tell you if you got too many easy/medium questions wrong and what sections those were in.

Focus on sections you are missing easy/medium questions first followed by the other sections. This should help in my opinion.

Tagging some other experts/mods to add their view on this too! workout nightblade354 gmatbusters bb pushpitkc

Best,

Hi GMATbuster92,

Yeah, I agree with the post above. You got 2 first questions wrong. Another reason might be that you got 3 wrong questions in a row. Check out the following thread for what-if scenarios to understand how the scoring algorithm works:

hope this helps!

Hi GMATbuster92,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. First off, your verbal 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, rather than spending timing worrying about the GMAC algorithm, you really should focus on the things you can control, and the number one thing you can control is getting better at the GMAT. If you get to a point at which you can dominate the GMAT, the specifics of the scoring algorithm won't matter because you will have the skills you need to get an amazing score, right?

That being said, I see you scored a V28 on your latest practice exam, and your actual GMAT is in 7 days. What is your actual goal score? If necessary, are you able to take your GMAT at a later date?

Please reach out with any further questions.
