Hi everyone. I took a veritas full mock today and scored 560 (Q46 V21). However, due to my weak internet access, I could not finish verbal section and left the 3 questions unanswered. I wonder how my real score would have been even if I had answered those questions wrong. I know that penalty for unanswered questions is significantly higher than incorrect ones.

Is it true or myth that "penalty for unanswered questions is significantly higher than incorrect ones." ?

Yes in my case.After a strategic analysis of my mocks, I've realized my verbal score dropped drastically from v38 to 32 when I couldn't solve 4 the verbal questions due to time crunch.

Hi,
Welcome to GMATclub. It's true that penalty for not finishing exams is higher (not significantly) than giving incorrect answers near the end of exam. Nobody can predict how much score you would have got in attempting all questions but you must attempt all questions. To get your current level, try giving the official mock (1-2) which is free on official GMAT website. Also, give the next mock in good connection :)
