Hi All,

I am really confused and need your help. I gave my GMAT Prep 6 and got a 740 (q50, v40). I got 2 wrong in quant and 5 wrong in verbal. After the test, i checked for the difficulty level of each question that i got in verbal and below is the trend, which is very very surprising (because despite getting correct answers continuously, the difficulty level is reducing).....is gmatprep6 accurate?

1. 700 cr
2. 600-700 rc
3. 600-700 rc
4. 600-700 rc
5. 700 rc
6. 700 rc
7. 700 rc - wrong
8. 700 rc
9. sub 600 sc
10. sub 600 sc
11. sub600 sc
12. 700 cr
13. sub 600 cr wrong
14. 600-700 sc
15. 600-700 sc
16. sub 600 cr
17. 600-700 sc wrong
18. 600-700 sc
19. 600-700 sc
20. sub 600 sc
21. sub 600 sc
22. 600-700 cr
23. 600-700 cr
24. sub600 sc
25. 700 rc
26. 700 rc
27. 700 rc
28. 700 rc
29. 700 cr wrong
30. 700 cr
31. 600-700 rc
32. 600-700 rc
33. 600-700 rc
34. sub 600 sc
35. 700 sc
36. sub 600 sc

Adding to this, i gave gmat prep 5 2 days back and the first 3 questions on quant were 700+. although i answered them correctly, the difficulty of the questions reduced. THis is very very weird and contrary to how its supposed to be. I have my gmat in 10 days and any insights on this would be useful.

Thanks a lot! :)

Verbal is slightly different from Quant in the sense that it is more difficult to assign a level of difficulty to a certain question.

I think I have read a couple of times that the test tends to be lest adaptable in the Verbal section as compared to Quant.
However, if anyone has heard different things or has more detail to chip in please let me know if I am wrong. :)

Cheers,
Chris

I'm sure it can not be as less adaptive as demonstrated above. I got a V40, with just a handful of 700+ questions thrown at me and so many sub 600 ones thrown at me. :)

Its as if the exam did not even give me a fair opportunity to prove I can answer harder questions too! Its really surprising.

One thing that might have had an influence is the fact that it was the last prep test.
Depending on your previous performance it could be possible that there was only a limited set of 700+ level questions that remained in the question pool.

However, this is mere speculation on my side.

Regards,
Chris

Hi BL1993,

What you see on GMAT Club, as far as difficulty level is concerned, may not be 100% accurate because it’s based on the GMAT Club user base and not data from GMAC. Thus, the algorithm likely functioned how it should. In any case, you did really well on your test! If on the real GMAT you can replicate your performance (2 incorrect quant questions and 5 incorrect verbal questions), you’ll have one heck of a GMAT score!
