#GMAT Practice Test : Customer Query

Friday, February 12th, 2010

A. Borhan recently wrote us asking whether our #GMAT Practice Test Simulator software intentionally skewed scores lower. He had received lower sectional scores with our simulator relative to some other practice software he had used – despite correctly answering approximately the same percentage of questions correctly in each corresponding section.

We explained that in fact there is very little relationship between “percentage correct” and your sectional score on the GMAT. For example, if two students both get 80% correct but the first student misses questions at the end of the section while the second student misses questions at the beginning of the section – the first student will receive much higher marks.

This is the nature of a Computer Adaptive Test – signup for our GMAT newsletter to receive more detailed information regarding GMAT scoring and how it affects you.
