In the official GMAT website under the FAQ section of "What are GMAT® Official Practice Exams and Practice Questions?" it is stated that -
"Practice with real GMAT questions from past exams and full-length practice exams that use the same scoring algorithm as the actual exam."

Thank you for the link. Yes. That is correct - that’s the update that GMAC has made after upgrading to the online platform.

Brutal. GMAT, in my opinion, doesn't give you enough chances to redeem yourself after you miss an "easy" question, which is likely what happened to you.

It would be great to look more closely at some of these 3 question CCW strings. You no doubt know the test is adaptive. What may be happening to you, because you get two questions correct in a row, is that you may be tempting the test to deliver the next question at a higher level of difficulty.

Unfortunately, you regularly got that third question wrong, and so have sent the algorithm a clear signal.

You probably know that their algorithm is top-secret, so that any attempt to assign a difficulty level to these questions is purely subjective. However, this would be at least a decent place to start your investigation.

You may also like to read up about what to do next in Verbal, in terms of Return on Time Invested. I go into it at more length: https://www.gmat.amsterdam/gmat_secrets_of_success/gmat-english

Kind Regards,
Omer

2. What is the importance of the last 10 questions?

Experiment: We will try to analyze the importance of the last 10 questions and if it equals the important of the first 10
Methodology: we will attempt the worst case scenario and will answer the first 27 Q questions correctly and then will answer the remaining 10 questions incorrectly (not guess but incorrectly).
Result: Score - Q49. Percentile - 75th. First 21 questions CORRECT. The final 10 questions WRONG.
Analysis: The questions were much harder this time with some new topics/types appearing on the test such as coordinate geometry/probability etc. Conclusion: the last 10 don't count as much as the first 10. This myth is True (as long as you can get the first 21 right). Please note that I have not guessed the last 10 but rather answered them incorrectly (which means I still had to solve those questions too). If you are guessing, you will most likely get a higher score.
When simulated in the previous GMAT Prep version, this scenario resulted in Score - Q50. Percentile - 92th.
Questions: 18PS and 13 DS.

Thank you for this awesome effort.
Is it possible to test something similar to that second scenario?
I'm looking for the result of something like this:
The difference between the effect of having around 10 incorrect answers distributed evenly over questions after number 10 and the effect of having 10 final questions incorrect.

Thanks
