Hi,

Is it absolutely neccessary that we get the first 15 questiosn correct in order to get a score of above 40 in Verbal and Quant. In Quant, I think we can double check to get them right...But I am NOT sure about the verbal part. Especially with RC's in the first 15. is It still possible to score good even if we go wrong in the first 15???

for a 40+ score, i dont think you need to get ALL of the first 15 right because one or two mistakes will not take your score below 40. If you get a simple question wrong, thats a big reduction. if its a hard one, its not a big deal.

if you really screw up the first 15 questions, yes, you might end up with a sub-40 score. with verbal, in the first 15 , you have CR's and RC's. Plus, not everyone puts their heart into RC's and CR's as much as they into SC's and that is a problem.

hope this helps

I screwed #12 or 13; I got 49 in Quant.
So, no; relax and stay focused through the test.

I can't comment as elaborately on the Verbal.
