The formula to calculate the score ?  [#permalink]

I am very curious to understand how do ETS calculate the Math and Verbal score.

It looks like the first 10 questions are the most important.

Any one can provide explanations or some info about it,

Answering correctly hard questions will definetly provides more points than others questions.

For example, Having a 14 Mistakes in quantitative can still provide a score of 42 if the 10 first questions were very well done...

I saw your question, and it looks like you are thinking about the wrong things. If you really want a score of 720 or so, you should really not think about which questions you can answer wrong or guess. You should try for a perfect score. Even if you "crack" their system, you are wasting precious moments thinking of non-GMAT questions. You should be studying full-time and exploring every detail of those questions you get wrong. Every wrong answer is, in fact, a present to you, because it gives you a chance to learn something new. Work as hard as you can to get every answer right and in a short time, and the score you want will be yours. I hope this helps.

with 720 above as aim, yu can't allow for mistakes. There is no concession. Just do it all right, that is the only possible way.
