New post 30 Nov 2019, 04:22
I give my GMAT exam in 4 days, and I am currently trying to understand why my mocks so far have been inconsistent.
The only mocks I have been using are the official GMATprep mocks, and I have been getting a range of scores.

Mock 1: Q49 V47 770
Mock 2: Q43 V46 720
Mock 3: Q49 V44 750
Mock 4: Q48 V41 720

All of these mocks were taken in the last six days, as my final prep for the test. Is it normal for my ability and scores to vary this much? Is there anything I can do to reduce this variation? All the tests have been fully taken with official breaks etc.

Should I take the final two mocks in the GMATprep series before test day as well?

Would love for answers to any of these questions.

Hi starklogan456,

At higher-and-higher score levels, points can be won and lost rather easily. All four of these CAT Scores are outstanding Scores, so assuming that you took these CATs in a realistic fashion that matches what you will face on Test Day, then you are a really strong overall critical thinker. The variations in your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores are almost certainly due to a handful of little mistakes and lucky/unlucky guesses on each Exam. As an example, if you review either of the CATs in which you scored 720 - how many questions in the Quant section did you get wrong that you COULD have gotten correct? How many Verbal questions did you 'narrow down to 2 choices' but still get wrong? What would you have needed to do differently to avoid those little errors and pick up those points (hint: some additional note-taking would almost certainly be required).

Since you're so close to Test Day, you should NOT be trying to do too much studying (so NO CATs and NO "cramming"). Some light practice and review would be fine, but you would be better served by getting some extra rest - so that you can go into Test Day calm, clear-headed and ready to work.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Hi starklogan456,

Since your GMAT is just a few days away, I would not recommend taking any more practice exams. You’ve done very well on mocks 1 through 4, so you should have a great shot at getting a high GMAT score on test day.

Let us know how things turn out. Good luck!
