Just got the enhanced score report from a test I took and for Verbal I got RC44, SC39, and CR6 --> 0%. Verbal score was 38 in total.

I usually get CR in the 90-95 percentile range in practice so honestly I'm just very confused. Could it have been a fluke? Could I only have been asked 1 CR question and got it wrong? Is the enhanced score report known to have mistakes?

Any ideas here would be helpful as I'd like to continue productive studying but I am simply confused.

Could you provide that ESR file?

Hey Chunker

Sometimes, the ESR is not perfect when you download it for the first time.
Try to re-generate the ESR again after some time and if the ESR has the same
mistake for the second time, write to GMAC about the anomaly on your ESR.

They will definitely regenerate the ESR at their end and update you with the
corrected ESR, if there are any changes.

Hope this helps you.

The GMAT has a bit of a problem with this. If you do significantly worse on one topic than another, it sometimes gives you an unrealistically low subscore. This may simply mean that the GMAT was not able to accurately gauge your skill in this area. So, for instance, if you performed near a "random" level (20-30%) on CR because the questions were too hard, the GMAT doesn't know your true CR level. Perhaps you would have gotten quite a few right at a somewhat lower level, or perhaps you would have missed the easier ones, too. The GMAT just doesn't know, since it doesn't level within topics. If you do well in SC and RC, then you'll get hard CR, too, even if that means you end up missing most or all of those questions.
