GMATClub CATs - Q51 but weird [#permalink]

New post 20 Apr 2017, 09:33
So, yesterday I took a quant CAT here at Gmat club and I got a Q51 score. Needless to say, I was ecstatic, especially since I've heard that the math on these CATs is harder than the real deal.

However, my joy was short-lived. Throughout the test I had a feeling that the difficulty is much lower than previous tests i've taken here and I finished early, which rarely happens if at all. I looked at the analytics (see below) and lo and behold! I got as many as 12 questions in the 500-level range. Isn't it weird that I can have that many easy questions and still hit Q51? Why did the test keep giving me easy questions if I answered all of them correct? Is this Q51 at all indicative of what I might get on the real test?

Thank you so much for your thoughts!

SCORE 51 PERCENTILE 99 %

CORRECT 34 91.9%
INCORRECT 3 8.1%

CAT TIME
67 : 06 out of 75:00

RESULTS BY DIFFICULTY
Difficulty Number of questions % Correct
500-LV 12 100%
600-LV 8 100%
700-LV 17 82%

Thoughts anyone? Is this common / normal or is it not representative?

Dear, The only true indicator of your actual or near to actual score is the GMAT Prep Official exam.

I would suggest you should get happy while getting these scores but to determine your true performance give an official mock exam and check where you stand.

Jesus! I don't think I've heard many people get Q51 on the Gmatclub tests, because these tests are much harder than the real test. Although I would argue that GMAT questions are simpler but trickier so don't take them lightly.

Study verbal, forget about Quant I think you will be fine! Good luck

Wow. You only got 3 questions wrong and finished with 8 minutes to spare.... I think you will get Q51 unless something goes terribly wrong.... I don't know a lot of people with these kinds of results. Take a GMAT Prep to get your final assurance.

As to the difficulty, you do not get only hard questions on the GMAT, no matter who you are answering and you wont' get just easy ones either. Good Luck!

Thank you for the reassurance, guys. In case you are curious, I followed your advice and took a GMAT Prep test. I got 740, Q49 and V42. I feel a bit more confident about the test now.
