How do I know if the GMAT took in account my last question?

Hi all,

Yesterday I took my first GMAT and it wasn't great... 680 Q46 V38 ; what really surprised me was the very low score on the verbal, on all the simulation test I did I never took less than 40 (more often 44/45). I am wondering if I might not have answered in time the last question , both in the QUANT and VERBAL; I chose an option but in both cases I ran out of time before clicking "next" and confirming the answer....
Did someone have a similar experience? How can I find out ? I am looking at the ESR on mba.com but it doesn't report if you answered all the questions or not!!!
Many thanks to all

V38 is not a low score (it's 85%). If you don't confirm your answer, it won't be counted. The GMAT will think that that question was not attempted.

as far as I know, GMAT penalizes a test taker if he/she does not attempt all questions, and in the last question if someone choose an option(out of the 5 ans choices) but unable to submit withing the time, there is no penalty and no points.

The penalty is applied. Not confirming is exactly the same as not attempting a question.

To investigate in detail this matter I have decided to order an ERS from GMAT; In the ERS (enhanced report score ) it states that I have answered all of the questions both in QUANT and VERB, even though I can guarantee you I didn't confirm the last answer in both cases....may be I didn't get any penalty but the answer was not taken in account?
The ERS says: " you have completed 41 of the 41 questions in the verbal section". I guess that for completed it means I answered them?
Anyone else can share his/her own experience?

In GMATprep, the system accepts the answer that was not submitted.

See here verbal #11:

Could you post your ESR here?

There are shortcuts for "next" and "confirm". You might find this post helpful as using shortcuts can save a lot of time during the test:
