Hello,

I have been taking mock tests to help improve my patience and time management. Have been scoring 680-760 in all of them. Today I attempted a test by IMS India, and I don't know how the scoring works... I got 4 questions wrong in verbal (3 medium and 1 difficult), equally spaced... and neither of them at the beginning or at the end of the test.
The verbal score says 43. Is 43 even a legit score in Verbal? Shouldn't my score be higher, given the accuracy?

Hi dips1122 ..
I would suggest you not to trust on unknown GMAT exam provider. You can check some of the unofficial prep tests from Kaplan, Manhattan, Veritas, etc which are highly recommended and give you close result. If you have not purchased official GMAT mocks, then you should buy them :)

Thank you... I bought veritas mocks, but I felt some qu.s are repeated (those I practised from GMAT club), hence my score may have been elevated there. But yeah, I have purchased 2 official mocks (they are hell expensive though :P) I intend to take them a week before my D-DAY (4th Jan) :D

Yes, they are expensive but worth to buy :) Also, most of the test companies give 1 mock free :) You can also attempt free mock of both Experts' global and Economist.

Hey, how was your experience with Expert's global mocks? did you find them useful?
How was the verbal and quant as compared to other mocks?

hello cantaffordname,
I found it strictly okay. I scored a 740 in that, but verbal was bad, filled with awkward constructions and oddities. I would recommend taking the free mock just for a time-bound practice, and not to assess your performance.

I found RC quite weird. SC is so predictable and Quant is at par. I have 15 mocks, I have no test taking stamina, do you think it's good idea to take them?

Yes, if you still have a lot of time to go for your GMAT. You can use the quant scores to get an idea of the performance. Honestly, I haven't found Verbal questions at par with the GMAT in any test, except in GMATPrep, MGMAT and Veritas. Space your mocks, though, so that they can be good indicators. If you have a lot of time left, no harm in increasing your patience with one of these tests every week or every 10-15 days!

Hello Scott, it's great to hear from you. I took my GMAT, scored 730 in it. (Q50, V39).. should be a safe score for me.. that's why I do not intend to take it again, and instead have decided to focus on refining my applications. I hope you are doing well.
