GMAT Prep practice test scoring [#permalink]

I used the GMAT Prep practice test software. I took the first test and in the math section I got 63% right for a 41. When I took the second test I got 65% of the math problems right for a score of 47. How could this be? A 2% increase in correct answers translates into a jump from the 64th percentile to the 82nd? Could it be because I answered more difficult questions correctly? Has anyone else encountered this? Is there something wrong with the GMAT Prep scoring?

Yes, the number of incorrect answers is irrelevant. All depends on the difficulty of questions....

Ok, I see. I knew that difficulty was a factor in scoring, but I didn't think it was to such an extent. Thanks.
