Hey DM234 ,

Yes, that's perfectly fine. Ideally the split is quite even but be prepared for surprises. :)

Good Luck!

Hi DM234,

Although GMATPREP is one of the best prep tests available, they are not certainly not 100% representative of the actual GMAT. The actual GMAT is known to surprise the test takers. I gave 4 GMATPREP exams before my actual GMAT, and I was expecting to see the splits mentioned by you above, however I got SC 15 and CR 13. Plus I was expecting to see 2 short, 1 medium and 1 large passage in RC as is common with GMATPREPs however I was completely taken by surprise when I got 1 small, 1 medium and 2 large passages. I was really surprised by this and it did affect my performance a little. So take the above splits just as a ball park figure and prepare to the best of your ability.

Hope this helps. All the best!

Its more or less standard for GMATPREP.. But in real GMAT, it can vary. In my GMAT, I received 3 large and one medium RCs, and fewer CR questions (I guess 9).

Hi DM234,

It's not clear what you mean when you ask if those score results are "normal." I assume that this CAT is the same one that you're referring to in this post:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-within- ... l#p1999445

You mention that you're taking the GMAT in a few days. What is your exact Test Date? If you're that close to your Official Exam Date, then you shouldn't be trying to do too much studying (NO more CATs and NO "cramming"). You would be better served by doing some light review and getting some extra rest, so that you can go into Test Day calm and ready to work.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
