More weightage for RC in GMAT?

    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 Crying or Very sad

    All sections are equally important. It is not possible to relate the no of questions answered wrong and the score in GMAT prep. However you should focus on your weak areas to improve your score.

    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. Strive for broader mastery.

    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.
