Hi all, I recently Gave my GMAT, and I scored a 720, Meanwhile I gave practice test 2 a day before the actual exam and scored a 770.

I was hoping that the scoring and difficulty of an official mock would be similar to the actual exam but it was way Off.

It might just be my experience, but i would still like to share it and ask if more people have experienced it.

PS. I did not attempt the exam earlier, I took it in exact same exam scenario. Took the exactly 2 8 minute breaks. and my exam day experience was not bad and there were no issue on that day too.

Please everyone share your views about this, I am curious because if this mock is a decent representation of my ability i will retake the GMAT or else i will make peace with my score.

I'm beginning to think the GMAC tests are a bit easier than the real ones as I ran into the same issue recently as well. I got a 750 on CAT 1 a few days before the real deal where I scored a 710. Not a huge difference but still. Especially since I didn't experience test anxiety and performed normally

Real bifurcation 720 - Q 49, V 40

Quant was way tougher than I found in GMAT practice exam.

Verbal SC was much tougher.

Ditto, Even I did not feel any anxiety in the exam.

Wait something is off Q49 and V44 should've been more. Anyway. Thanks. Quant was tough or tricky?
