I have noticed that mock tests are not giving me difficult 650+ or 700+ level questions.
In a recent veritas mock test, I did 12 questions incorrect in quant to get 51, but 12 questions incorrect in verbal to get 31
Seeing the trend of questions, I feel I should have been given difficult questions in verbal too.
Pasting the verbal results here

Hi
The level of question that you receive is based on many factors. Some of them being the percentage of questions correct in lower level questions (500-600, 600-700..). Just for an example, see the first 10 questions in which you got 4 questions wrong of level 600-700, so the next question that appears will be a 500-600 level question and so on. Try to focus on the reason you are getting the lower level questions wrong and analyze your mistakes. Once you get those right, you will definitely get higher level questions.

Hi,

I am repeating the Gmat Preparation. I had given Veritasdd exam last year in Dec. and now again I am attempting those(after reseting). I have till now written 6 of those.
I do feel that after implementing the shorter format of Gmat, Veritas algorithm has become slightly flawed(in terms of difficulty level of questions), especially Quant part. At times I am flooded with 700+ level questions and at times I am only 1-2 of those.
Whats more, my scores have varied from 46 to 51 in these 6 tests, which I have given with in a time frame of 1 month. My most recent score being 47.
I have been maintaining an excel sheet of the level of questions, but still cant figure out where I going wrong !
