    Hello everyone, I have a question to ask regarding my verbal score of GMATprep 1. Out of 41 questions, I answered only 14 questions wrongly but my score is less than half of 60 which is 29/60. How can that be possible... I would be satisfied with 35. Kindly explain what has gone wrong. Thank you very much.

    GMAT consider no of hard questions also in calculating

    I mean if you answer one hard question, you may get more marks than marks that would be deducted if you get 2 simple wrong

    In short, just dont go on wrong and righas

    Do you know complexity of questions..If no, I doubt you can calculate

    Hello iamcste, thanks for your opinion. It is hard to judge the complexity of the V questions asked in GMATprep 1; I could not really tell whether the questions are from 600 level or 700 level.

    I counted the number of questions which I have answered correctly for SC, RC and CR:

    SC 9/17 (only 9 answered correctly)
    RC 10/13
    CR 8/11

    I am disappointed that most of my mistakes occurred in SC. It means that I have to further intensify my study on SC. At the same time, it is also a relieve for me that I have improved on my CR.

    Overall, I am not satisfied with my current performance in V. This is the main factor I am not scoring 700 at the moment Sad
