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.

First of all thanks for your answers!
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.

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:
