This topic has 3 expert replies and 2 member replies sriram Junior | Next Rank: 30 Posts Joined 09 Aug 2007 Posted: 23 messages Followed by: 3 members #### More weightage for RC in GMAT? Wed Sep 12, 2007 2:38 am I heard from my friend that in GMAT, RC carries greater weightage than CR and SC. Is that true? He said that in GMATPrep, he got only 1 wrong in RC, 4 in CR and 7 in SC and still got a score 41 ! This may sound silly, but I am worried because RC is my weakest area Need free GMAT or MBA advice from an expert?

Does ratio goes RC>CR>SC. Given the complexity of the algorithm, we can't assume this is true. Because different problems will be assigned different weights depending on their difficulty level, and you're sure to see a range of difficulty within each section, it's not safe to conclude that one type of question is more valuable than another type. So don't try to game the system by focusing a disproportionate amount of your study time on one category.

You also have to remember that there are EXPERIMENTAL QUESTIONS on every real GMAT - questions that won't count toward your overall score. If you try to overweight one question type over others, you may be spending time on questions that don't count at the expense of questions that do.
