hello, can someone explain how to get 51 in Verbal ? (Official Practice Test)
I don't understand why I got a 46 even though I only missed one question.
Should I understand this question was worth 5 points or is there something else than getting questions right to the adaptive scoring?
Obviously no one needs a V51, I'd like to understand the scoring.
I would expect to get a 51 if I got all of them right.
Thank you.

You have to correct every question to get V51.
I'll give you a link where there is a broad discussion for scoring system.

Hi Pdornano
I guess this table can make sense
(Note that the difficulty of the questions is an important factor. A mistake with easy or medium question is penalized more than a hard one. This factor may differ the outcome from what is mentioned in the table)

Hi Pdornano, GMAT algorithm is very complex and unique for its uniqueness.
GC experts have tried some What-If scenarios and their detailed findings are available here:

Have a look at it to get some idea.

Hope it helps somewhat!!
