Manhattan Prep Free GMAT CAT Penalty for not finishing??  [#permalink]

Hello all,

I scored a Quant:37 & Verbal 34 on a Manhattan Prep practice test, score was 590. However, the last problem on verbal I filled in the answer but did not have time to hit next, I've done this on the actual GMAT before as well. On the Quant I did the same thing for the last problem, filled in the answer before time expired but did not hit next. When I reviewed my results the last problem of both sections say "NA" rather than giving a check mark for correct or an X for wrong. I am wondering if my score was counted or if I was penalized in each section for this? I was under the impression on the GMAT if you select an answer and let time expire that your answer still counted without hitting next. would anyone here know if my Manhattan Prep practice exam would have penalized me for the two "NA" one in each verbal & Quant?

Thank you very much

Thanks for reporting back on the last question functionality with MGMAT CATs. That’s the same way GMAT and GMAT Prep work these days (was not the case previously but still the case with AWA).

Anyway, I would absolutely expect that MGMAT CATs work just like the official test and penalize you for missing a question. About 3 percentile points.

Thanks for the reply,

So therefore in order for my question to be counted, though it was a last second guess, I need to hit the next button for Gmat prep / Manhattan prep practice exams? Is this the same on the official exam?

the last question i missed in verbal was a 700-800 level question tho I believe I actually guessed correctly, and the last question i missed in quant was a 500-600 level question. (They were recorded as NA)

would I evaluate my scores in both sections increasing by ~2/3%? Giving me a score more similar to 34/35 (74%) Verbal & 38/39 (37%) Quant? Around a 600-610 rather than 590?
