On almost all of the different types of GMAT questions in this forum, there is a bar at the top with a timer, the different answers and also a difficulty level. These are: low, medium and hard.

If you would transfer these levels to the GMAT score, i.e. 200-800, approximately how would you rank them? If you look at different topics such as: "GMAT PS Question Directory by Topic & Difficulty", there is a sample of questions, ranging from 500-700. In the 500 range, almost all of the questions have the difficulty level low, in the 600 range, almost all of the questions have the difficulty level medium, and in the 700 range, almost all of the questions have the difficulty level hard.

Would you say that this is accurate? Of course I understand that it differs, and that CAT effects the level as well.

Hey Hatethissh,

The difficulty level, which you have been seeing on this forum depends on the number of users who attempt the question and get the answers correctly.

The timer difficulty and tags are in sync. So the difficulty should be fairly accurate taking into consideration that almost a million timers are taken monthly.

Taking into consideration that there are no known sources to really indicate what a true 600 or 700-level question is, this is probably as exact and precise as it gets.
