The "old" desktop platform at least gave you this data so you could have a better understanding on where to focus your efforts

I bought the exam pack 2 on the new format but was not able to access the detailed score report. Is this only activated by EP 1 or have they discontinued it in the online version?

Just attempted Exam 2 of the online GMAT Prep. Went through the whole exam and then after the Report of Cancel Score screen got stuck on a screen saying "Please wait.. Your question is being evaluated". Screen has been stuck like that for about 20 minutes now. Have tried to refresh but it just takes me back to the AWA, after which I get stuck on this screen again. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

I encountered the same issue just now! finished a full-length exam and it's now stuck at "Please wait.. Your question is being evaluated" screen for like 20mins now. It is still loading! don't know what to do! Were you able to see your score after all? were you able to resolve the issue? Please let me know!!

MY GMAT EXPERIENCE(Shorter Version)

Recently i have given my GMAT (Though I got less marks with a 45 days preparation) I have encountered somewhat less number of Data sufficiency questions in my final exam and more number of problem solving questions when it comes to quantitative and there are many Sentence correction questions and very few Critical reasoning questions when compared to RC and SC. There are 4 RC's
(My bad luck is my third question was a 4 paragraph passage).

*There are few CR questions in the updated version.
*I didn't get exhausted while writing the real GMAT.
*Testing center matters a lot. Choose it wisely.
*I didn't find any difference in the Integrated Reasoning and AWA sections.

My final exam result was 500 with Q45 and V14. As I have applied some random strategy i have got those marks I' m gonna give my 2nd and final attempt after my verbal improvement.

I appeared yesterday.
Unfortunately, I got the same score of 690 as I did last time, so I cancelled it.
However this time my quant took a hit while the verbal score improved. Last exam was Q49, V35, IR 7. This time it was Q47, V37, IR 4.

Quant: Seemed trickier. I think I might have solved easy questions wrongly. I need to return to basics I guess as I had practiced mostly hard questions this time in order to get Q50/51. I remember verbally solving few quant questions yesterday, that was suicidal.

Verbal: Overall tough, similar to last time. Majority questions seemed to be SC. 4 RC passages. I think I just got 7-8 CR questions. Do not take my word on that as I was not counting, but CR questions were quite few. The good news is that timing wise, verbal was manageable.

IR: I lost track midway. I think it was not my day, scored a dismal 4. IR also seemed a notch higher than last time.

It feels bad to miss 700 mark by a whisker twice. But I will not give up and hopefully re-appear soon. Good luck to all upcoming test takers.

In working with my private GMAT students, I've noticed a few important differences between the old desktop GMATPrep software and the new online tests:

1) Keyboard shortcuts (ALT-N, ALT-Y, etc.) don't work on the online tests (though I imagine they will continue to work on the actual exam).
2) When you review your answers on the online tests, the correct answer is already indicated (for maximum learning, it would be better if the GMAC went back to the old "Show Answer" button, so that you could re-try the question first before clicking it). In fact, it would be even better if your original answer were not indicated either, in order to facilitate what I call a "blind re-try" of each incorrectly answered question.

3) The "ESR" that is included with Exam Pack 1 is not yet as detailed or helpful as is the one included with the GMATPrep software: although it does provide "time taken per question by section and type" and overall scores, it does not provide sub-scores or percentiles for the individual question types in each section (Problem Solving, Data Sufficiency, Reading Comprehension, Sentence Correction, Critical Reasoning, Graphical Interpretation, Multi-Source Reasoning, Table Analysis, Two-Part Analysis), as does the desktop version of GMATPrep. This is quite a glaring omission!

Average timing information by question type is somewhat helpful, but what matters more is your overall performance on each question type, which used to be provided, but this key question-type data is currently missing from the online tests--at the moment all that is provided is an overall score, sub-scores in Quant and Verbal, and timing information.

4) When viewing overall section performance, the questions are organized horizontally (?) instead of vertically. I have also noticed a bug where the wrong question number shows up in the review screen.

Brian, so I finished all the sections in my CAT 3 on the online version today, however, I did not click Next before the time is up on the AWA (last section) and I clicked next after the time is up. Then the screen is frozen and said "your question is being evaluated"> Is there are way to fix this and get a score?

I was assuming I did nto need to press next and my essay will still be saved and score will still be computed.

As with most cloud-based software, it's probably a browser issue:

1) Open up Chrome or some other browser instead.
2) Access your test that way.

Good luck,

These changes are annoying. I don't understand why GMAC decided to modify what was working so well before. Shaking my head. I hope they bring back the old useful features.

Thanks Brian - I was taking the test on Chrome. Do you mean open on another browser for the home page and see the test score?

I tried opening another tab on Chrome and Internet Explorer and just loged into my home page but it said for CAT 3, there has been 0 attempt. I still have another Chrome tab opened where it froze to your question is being evaluated.....

Do you think if I call GMAT they can solve this? Any chances the questions are still saved? They prob did not wipe out the questions correct?

Sure! Maybe it wasn't a browser issue at all, in your case at least. I wouldn't panic just yet--others in this situation have been able to recover their scores.

Ultimately, though, this is a GMAC tech support issue. However, GMAC is not exactly the highest-rated customer service provider in the industry, if you know what I mean. Sometimes you just have to keep trying until you figure out the issue yourself.

If all else fails, you could always send a message to the GMAC representative on GMAT Club and see whether you receive a helpful response.

Hi, I'm new here and I need opinion from anyone about my latest GMAT experience.
So, anyone thinking after the new format GMAT become harder?? I took first GMAT last March with old format and can score 600, but when I attempt to took it again today, my score drops to 490!!
I was study using only OG 2016 and 2018, it goes well for my first GMAT, but for me today's question far from OG typical question.
Any inside?

What is your sectional score? PS, DS, CR, RC, SC. The difference between old and new GMAT is mainly number of questions in RC and passages being more convoluted. Also, the probability of guessing an answer will hurt more than before because experimental q's are removed.

IMO..people who scored 600-700 range earlier are scoring 450-550 range with the new pattern. SO try to ace RC and accuracy, a little more hard work is required to score 650+ in new GMAT.

Hope this helps.

hey guys,

I was in the midst of a CAT on the new Official Gmat Prep platform. I clicked next to submit my quant answer and the screen froze. So I closed the popup, went back to main menu and clicked on continue (This was EXAM 3). However, it did not resolve my issue. In fact I got kicked out of the entire platform and now cant even load the website anymore.

Can anyone please check whether the site is up and running? It is not loading for me anymore. My browser is attempting to establish a connection but nothing shows up - not even a connection error.

Kindly let me know if you have similar issues...

IMO..people who scored 600-700 range earlier are scoring 450-550 range with the new pattern. SO try to ace RC and accuracy, a little more hard work is required to score 650+ in new GMAT.

Hope this helps.
Hey, thanks for your reply. I don't really remember since the total score so low I canceled it immediately. I think around 30 for Q and around 20 for V, all below my first GMAT.

So, they remove all experiment questions or only proportionally, which means experimental questions still there only with smaller number?

Have you taken GMAT with new format? What's your score? Do you think OG still enough? Any recommendation for other source?

Sorry for lots of question, I'm still unsure whether to take another GMAT or stick with 600, since today's test question too different with my practice all this time, I'm afraid another GMAT will only end with failure
