#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.

Customer Query: Why can I not save a partially complete exam?

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

A customer recently inquired why we do not support saving and grading partially complete exam sessions. We responded:

“While we understand that it is difficult to find the time to complete a simulated GMAT or GRE test session in a single sitting, based upon our extensive experience, it would be a disservice to you to grade a partially complete simulated exam.

While practice sessions and drills have their place in GMAT and GRE test preparation, our software is meant to recreate the actual exam experience from beginning to end. Both exams require a significant time investment. In fact, time management throughout an entire GMAT or GRE test session (both maintaining uninterrupted focus and working efficiently) is the major factor in every student’s final score. Thus, we want our software to assist students by preparing them for the rigors of comprehensive time management throughout a complete exam session.

Although it can be an inconvenience, we believe you’ll thank us for forcing you to find the uninterrupted time to practice with an authentic simulator. Good luck on your upcoming exam and please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you.”

Question Pools Update

Tuesday, October 19th, 2004

All three GMAT question pools will be updated this evening and our simulator scoring engine will undergo a slight adjustment to account for recently observed scaled sectional percentile changes in the actual GMAT exam.

This update to our question pool has been performed to insure that all of our customers have access to the most accurate GMAT simulator available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I am interested in buying GMAT simulator for my gmat practice, but I don't
have a internet connection at my home.

Can you clarify some of my doubts.
1.Is there any other way I can access your test material without internet.

2.If I use your gmat simulator from my friends house or internet cafe and If
the internet connection gets disconnected in the middle of the exam, can i
continue the test ..
Because I don't know whether I will get a 4 hours continous internet
connection in my place.

3.If i wish to take the same test again for various reason can i do it. or
Is one test charged for one testing session. ?


Hi Scintill,

Thank you for your interest in our GMAT Simulator. I’ll try to answer your questions below.

You will need to connect to the Internet initially in order to login to the exam. The simulator software will download the entire question pool as it launches and after the exam begins you will not need to be connected to the Internet. After your session is complete, the software will attempt to connect again in order to save your results, but if it fails it will simply continue without saving.

A broken connection will not affect your test session. You only need to be connected at the beginning when you login and at the end when the software attempts to save your results.

You can access your saved session in order to review your questions, answers, score, timing information, explanations, etc… at any time after completing a simulated session. However, each new session requires a new access code because each session is unique and generates a different set of questions based on the performance of the test taker.

I hope these are satisfactory answers to your questions, if you need any more information please do not hesitate to contact us.
