Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I just noticed the following message on my MGMAT CAT review page, does this mean the official GMAT exam calibration was updated, resulting in the following change in MGMAT CATs? Honestly i don't know what this message means, maybe someone has a better understanding of the following message.
"CAT Recalibration – August 29, 2012 We have recalibrated our CAT scoring. CATs taken AFTER 11:00 AM EDT on August 29, 2012 are scored according to the new calibration. Older CAT scores are unaffected."
never mind i checked with MGMAT folks, and it seems i had exhausted the toughest questions as it was the last of the 6 tests..
There are only so many 700+ level questions in the bank so if you perform really well on your earlier tests, your later tests will feel easier. This doesn't have anything to do with calibrating the CATs.
We calibrate CAT scoring about once every year so that we can predict your real GMAT scores as accurately as possible. All the questions are still the same. If you want to get a better sense of what your score is on tests taken before August 29th of this year, deduct 10 to 20 points.
