Does the Manhattan CAT scoring seem a bit off? I just took my first CAT and i received a 560 (Q47,V21). But when I went to look at the % of correct answer I had a break down of approximately 50% correct for all section of the test. (PS was like 64% though). Overall quantitative section was approx. 55% correct. I don't understand how that translate to a score of 47, while my Verbal was slightly lower(% wise) and yet my overall score was just 21.

GMAT score does not depend on the number of incorrect answers. It depends on the value of the questions you answered correctly.
From my experience, the quant and verbal raw score in the actual GMAT is MGMAT raw score for quant and verbal plus two.
The reason for this is that MGMATs don't have experimental questions. Therefore, every question contributes to the total score. In the actual GMAT approximately only 2/3rd of the questions count towards the actual score.

Hey,

On the GMAT, everybody answers different questions, some easier, some harder. You can think of the GMAT as a test that searches for each person’s “60% level,” or the difficulty range in which the person is able to answer approximately 60% of the questions correctly. (This is not exactly what happens, but it’s a good way to think of the difference between “regular” tests and computer-adaptive tests.)

Your score will be determined by the difficulty of the questions that you answer correctly versus the difficulty of those that you answer incorrectly.

Best,

are the Manhattan CATs generally easier or more difficult than the actual GMAT?
