Hello All,

Below are the GMAT Club Quant tests that I took over the past 30 days. I am curious to know whether there has been any improvement in the scores in terms of the performance or strength of difficulty.

I am confused to guage the performance because if you notice the images of each test here, the difficulty level of questions has increased and the last test had more number of 700-level questions.

You're asking a wise question here. The way that GMAT scoring works is a little hard to wrap your head around, but the images you've posted are a good example of what most test-takers will see as they improve. (By the way, 32 to 42 is a nice improvement -- excellent work!)

The GMAT is a weird test - on a traditional test, everybody takes basically the same test, but some people get more questions right than others. On the GMAT, everybody effectively takes a different test, but gets roughly the same 'grade'. As you've seen, there is a small difference in how many you get right/wrong at the very low end and the very high end; people with very low Q scores, like your initial score, will typically get a few more problems wrong than people with mid to high scores. But there isn't a very wide range. Instead, the GMAT makes the test harder or easier until you're missing about half of the questions, and then gives you a score based on how hard your test was.

The numbers show that your second two tests were harder than the first one, so you're heading in the right direction! However (there's always a however...), be careful about your accuracy on the lower-difficulty questions. Ideally, I like to see close to 100% accuracy on the 'easier' questions, regardless of what 'easier' means for you, before you start working on the harder questions. Getting one or two super-tough questions right does very little for your score, but missing an easy question is particularly bad for you. Look out for those careless mistakes

Hello Chelsy,

I read your blog and that gives me more insights into how far can we go in terms of getting questions wrong. That pretty much summarizes my confusion about those 3 images I shared in my first post. It is good that I am seeing more number of 700 questions, but it is also important to ensure a 100% accuracy on the lower level questions. With an intent of getting most right, I tend to spend my resources on the tough questions and in fact took more than 3 mins of time per question of 700 level which resulted in decrease of the time spent on 500-600 level. Hence, the silly and careless mistakes.

I will start focusing on my guessing strategies and a better time management. Thank you for your feedback. That helps a lot!
