Hello,

Does anyone know if there is a standard distribution of RCs, between short passages and long passages, on the GMAT? On my first GMAT I had 3 short passages and 1 long passage. On my second GMAT I had 3 long passages and one short/medium passage. Was it possible that one of the RCs, during my second test, was experimental? Most GMAT test companies say that the GMAT usually goes with the former distribution of 3 short passages and 1 long passage.

I have seen several reports. Usually 1 long and 1 short are guaranteed. The rest fluctuates.
