Hi everyone. I recently took a CAT Verbal test of GMAT Club and my score was 29. I just want to know whether this score is accurate since in other tests I've taken (MBA dot com) I've got even more wrong answers (some of them in a single strike) and a higher score.

Incorrect: 10
Correct: 26

 # Answer Difficulty 1 - 600 2 - 600 3 + 500 4 + 600 5 - 600 6 + 500 7 + 600 8 + 500 9 + 500 10 + 500 11 + 700 12 - 700 13 + 500 14 - 600 15 + 700 16 - 600 17 - 600 18 + 500 19 - 500 20 + 700 21 + 500 22 + 500 23 + 500 24 - 700 25 + 600 26 + 500 27 + 500 28 - 500 29 + 500 30 + 500 31 + 500 32 + 700 33 + 500 34 + 700 35 + 600 36 + 500

In GMAT, the score depends on the difficulty of the wrong questions.
8 of the 10 questions are easy to medium, so the penalty is higher than when the majority of the wrong answers are hard.

I think your result is interesting. You show potential in solving hard question. maybe silly mistakes make you lose easy points.

Try not to compare scores across test providers, but generally speaking, official practice test scores are more reliable than those generated by non-official tests.

Wow - you have put together a table!!!! for that list. WOW! You have my respect - that's hard to do!

As to your question. You feel that's too low or too high?

I am going to disappoint and say that the score does not depend on how many you got wrong. See this topic about getting wild swings with the same number of correct answers: https://gmatclub.com/forum/new-format-g ... 69682.html

The accuracy of the test depends on the quantity of questions in the database and algorithm (even the best algorithm can't do a good job if there are not enough questions). As ArjeshArun mentioned, the GMAT Prep USUALLY provides the BEST estimate of your score, esp in the Verbal section since you are being evaluated using the official questions. However, people have seen substantial swings even with GMAT Prep. They say the standard error is about 30-40 on the actual GMAT (meaning that if you retake the test twice in a row, your score may be 30-40 points off).

Good Luck!
BB.

Hi martinoco,

As many have said already, your GMAT score is based not only on the number of questions correct/incorrect but also on the difficulty of the those questions.

If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out.

Good luck!
