Hi All,

Just trying not to get demoralized by the latest Manhattan Prep test score. These tests are taken over a month and half period, no improvement; with 14 days away from the test date, the latest dip and inconsistency overall isn't helping.

GMATPrep Test 1: 710 Q50 V40
GMATPrep Test 2: 660 Q47 V34
GMATPrep Test 3: 760 Q51 V41 (3 - 4 questions repeating in each section)
GMATPrep Test 4: 760 Q51 V41 (3 - 4 questions repeating in each section)
Man Prep Test 1: 750 Q51 V41
Man Prep Test 2: 720 Q50 V38
Man Prep Test 3: 740 Q51 V40
Man Prep Test 4: 690 Q48 V36 (Test taken after CAT Recalibration on August 29, 2012)

Can anybody shed some light on the latest recal of Manhattan? The questions went easier, but the adaptive curve seems to be all over the place. Verbal section, after correctly answered 3 700-800 questions, the last 3 questions were all 600-700; although they were also answered correctly, not sure whether that would have improved the Verbal.

Thanks.

Hi,

The recalibration applies solely to how we derive your subscores and overall score for your exam, not in how we assign questions. We changed this to match changes in the real exam. Nothing in our actual test material has changed. Since the recalibration is only pushing quant subscores down by about 1 point and verbal subscores down by 1-2 points, it looks like part of your drop is due to lower performance. The rest is due to recalibration. This means that given your previous scores, you should still be able to hit 700+ on a good day.

I hope this helps!

Why the recalibration? I always got the feeling your MGMAT score is probably 10-20 points lower than what you get on the actual test.
