So I have some VERY exciting news to share, via SarahPurewal!

Drum roll please... :-)

On Friday, May 18th, 2018, according to his wife Sarah, the legendary RonPurewal earned a 51Q/51V/8IR perfect 800 composite score on the new, shorter GMAT, with all 67 counted questions correct.

Image

I am in possession of a PDF of his full ESR, but it is not mine to share, so I am going to leave that up to him, as well as the actual debrief if Ron so chooses to write one, but I'm going to go ahead and say that it appears to be legit (though I would also urge Ron to confirm his score through GMAT Club in order to make it official (once a score is confirmed, you will see a green checkmark on the bottom left of his profile--see mine for reference). This would make him (MartyMurray got there first by a few weeks) only the second person on this forum with a verified perfect 800 GMAT score.

Congrats RonPurewal, and best of luck to you in leaving Manhattan and venturing out on your own.

-Brian

Hearty congratulations to Ron! Anything less than 800 would not have done justice to Ron's astounding legacy:).

Hope you will be able to edit your post in few days to add the AWA score of 6;).

Many congratulations RonPurewal for the amazing score, not that it comes as a surprise! I have always been amazed at the precision with which he approaches questions and the kind of caveats he is able to locate in both quant and verbal questions alike.

You can download a PDF of Ron's ESR on the website: https://www.ronpurewal.com/scores/

Also, Ron took the GRE today and got a 340 :cool:

He got a 6.0 on the AWA.

Finally, for anyone who is wondering: If you cancel an 800, you will still get banned from the test for five years. Ron is probably the only person who's ever tried to cancel an 800 :lol:

Now all Ron needs to do is get around to verifying his scores--GMAT scores are valid for 5 years after the test date.

Congrats to Ron, but how the heck were his verbal questions of lower difficulty than mine when I only scored a V38? Not doubting the validity of the ESR, but I would've thought that the test would've ramped up the difficulty significantly after so many correct responses. Is it possible to do so well that you break the test??
