I took test today Exam Pack 1 Test No 4 and scored 760 with (Q49 V 44) but I am confused with low score in Quant. Earlier in GMAT default exam pack Test 1, I scored Q50 with 8 incorrect and in Exam Pack 1 Test No 3 scored 49 with 10 Incorrect.

Can you please help me explain why i got score of Q49 even though number of incorrect are only 4? Detailed analysis of incorrect is as below. Further is it possible that if I had got let's say 7-8 incorrect in Quant I would have ended up at Q47.

Hi
Congrats on the great score in the prep test.
Actually it is difficult to determine the scores as the Gmat algorithm is quite difficult. It depends more on the level of questions you got wrong, rather than the number of questions wrong. For example, if you are doing well and get a 500 level question wrong you will be penalized more than if you get a 700 level question wrong. It also depends on the sequence in which you got the questions right or wrong. For example, if you get 1 question wrong in 5 questions, you will be penalized less than if you get continuous 3-4 questions wrong. It means that if your wrong answers are spread out in the test, it will harm you less than if they are continuous.
In my opinion you are on your way to get a great Gmat score.
Hope it helps.

As the others have pointed out, you shouldn't go only by the number of questions incorrect (the scaled score is what test takers should focus on).
