Hi everyone,

I was wondering if someone could help me understand this huge difference between two verbal scores (two different tests) from orion. In one test I got V30 with 13 incorrect answers and the other one i got V35 with 18 incorrect answers. I know that this is not how GMAT works but still found it weird.

V30
Overall (Correct 23 and Incorrect 13)
CR (Correct 6 and Incorrect 5)
RC (Correct 7 and Incorrect 5)
SC (Correct 10 and Incorrect 3)

V35
Overall (Correct 18 and Incorrect 18)
CR (Correct 4 and Incorrect 5)
RC (Correct 7 and Incorrect 5)
SC (Correct 7 and Incorrect 8)

It could be one of these cases that you get incorrect questions at an easier level?

How are these incorrect answers distributed?

Lets just consider them for the sake of simplicity 4 quarters

From 1 to 9
From 10 to 18
From 19 to 27
From 28 to 36

While there are of course various factors and not just number of mistakes that determine the score, V35 despite 18 incorrect is still quite awkward. I would suggest taking a GMATprep test at a logical stage to know your correct level. Rest, focus on preparation and don't read too much into such fluctuations in private tests.

Hi luigipizzichemi,

I’m glad you reached out, and I’m happy to help. First off, your GMAT score is based on not only the number of questions you answer correct/incorrect, but also the difficulty of those questions, among other things. Additionally, as Salsanousi mentioned, despite your getting fewer questions wrong on your first test, if most of those were “easy” questions, that could explain the lower score, right? You may consider taking an official GMAC practice exam to see how your verbal score compares to the verbal scores from your previous two practice exams.

With that said, when is your GMAT? What is your GMAT score goal? You may find it helpful to read this article about
how to score a 700+ on the GMAT.

If you have any further questions, please reach out.
