I took a bunch of kaplan and 2 gmac practice test and I don't know whether I can rely on the results. In last gmac test I got 49 in quantitative while I've failed 15 questions out of 31. I already took 1 real test and got 43 quantitative, while failed only around 10. Is this possible?

Yes. It is possible. The gmat score does not depend on how many questions you got wrong but rather on how many hard questions you got right.

Yes. Unlike most tests, the GMAT doesn't give you a score based on the number of questions you get right. It's possible to miss a lot of questions and get a good score, and vice versa.

Here's some data from our students' ESRs, if you're interested in the details:
