I gave the Manhattan GMAT Test 1 a few hours ago and scored a 710(V38,Q49). The review section of my attempt had a "%ile est." column which I am assuming displayed my recalculated percentile after each question. While reviewing the test, I noticed that my estimated percentile was very high in the last few questions, almost 99%ile, in both the sections but dropped significantly in the last 3-4 questions.

My Verbal Percentile was 98 at 32nd questions but dropped to 85 ultimately since I got 33,34 and 36th question wrong. For Quant, my percentile was 96 at the 30th question and dropped to 76 since I got 31st question wrong.

I had read that the last few questions don't affect our GMAT score significantly. But here it seems like a very different case! Can I expect something similar on the actual GMAT? Or is it something different about the algorithm used by Manhattan only?

I have 4 more days for GMAT Exam. Wish me luck! :D

ayushman98 - Please focus on your timing strategy. It's a common phenomenon among test-takers to rush through the last few questions and ultimately getting them all wrong, resulting in a steep score drop. You should always focus on getting the last 3-4 questions correct; typically, these questions are easy on both the section and reward test-takers who have ample amount of time to solve those questions successfully and finish the test strong. All the best for your test.
