Hi everyone, I have questions about the new score table of new gmat with less time.
On its website, GMAC said the update won't change the scoring since it cut only unscored, experimental questions.
However, I have heard that there is a general calculating method as below (not 100% accurate but could role as a reference)
For VERBAL: V51=41+5(1)+5(2)
- the first 5 scores is given if (a) the first 11 questions have less than 4 wrong answers and if (b) the first 16 questions have less than 5 wrong answers
- the second 5 scores is given if (a) the first 21 questions have less than 7 wrong answers and if (b) all questions are answered
- also, the correctness of the first 21 questions would decide whether the examinee could have access to the high-score questions
I knew GMAT is a computer-adaptive testing, and difficulties of the questions will also influence the score.
But, I still wonder if there is a general method to predict the ultimate score? And how will the change of declined numbers of question affect the scoring method?
If anyone has any idea of how the VXX score is calculated, and how many questions could be wrong to earn V41+, please kindly share your thoughts.
Welcome any comments and discussions. Thank you!
Thank you!
The calculation you're mentioning here is completely incorrect.
The GMAT isn't scored based on how many questions you get right. It also isn't scored based on how many questions you get right in any particular section. (It isn't even directly based on how many hard/easy questions you get right, in the way you might be thinking - of course, getting hard questions right consistently will improve your score, and getting easy questions wrong will hurt it, but it isn't like there's some calculation based on % of hard/easy questions.)
Here's some data:
