Customer Query: How can I review my unanswered questions?

Wednesday, July 6th, 2005

“I completed a simulated session using question pool #1 but time expired during my quantitative section and I did not reach the final three questions. When I click on any of these questions during a review session I don’t see a question or the answer. Please tell me how to review questions that I left unanswered.” –S. V.

This is a point of confusion for many test takers and you must understand a little about adaptive examinations in order to appreciate the answer. Our simulator selects your next question from a pool of available questions in an adaptive manner, just like the actual GMAT. After you complete a GMAT session, there are still many questions remaining in the question pool that were never presented to you and that you will never see.

This is a fundamental principle of an adaptive exam and it is the reason there is nothing to review for “unanswered questions.” If you do not complete a section due to time constraints, your “unanswered questions” are not only not answered, they are in fact not even selected from the pool.
