800score.com test

Hi guys,

Been a long while since my last post.


I gave the 1st 800score.com test.(https://www.800score.com/free-gmat.html)


(Having some problem with the Math scoring-sometimes it is showing 48 for 29/37 correct and sometimes 49 when I open a separate window)Which one is the right score for 29/37 correct?


My scores were as follows:-(**I did not write the AWA)
1)Math:

Section Score-48 or 49
Percentile-86 or 88
29 out of 37 correct(I found 1 or 2 question framing to be ambiguous-not expecting the same on the actual GMAT)


2)Verbal:

Section Score-33
Percentile-69
30 out of 41 correct

GMAT Cumulative Score = 660 or 680(Depending upon the Quant 48/49 score)


How does this test fare up compared to the actual GMAT?

Thanks in advance.
It takes time and effort to explain, so if my comment helped you please press Thanks button :)



Just because something is hard doesn't mean you shouldn't try,it means you should just try harder.

first of all, whether it is 660 or 680 doesn't matter. You need to see why you have done those 8 mistakes, which questions took lot of time, were you concentration level good through out the exam etc. I don't think any test other than GMATprep can be used to estimate the score. Even GMATprep is not close.

So don't worry about scores in the mock, but concentrate on the mistakes, concepts etc :)

No offense intended.

All the best.

Also one more thing to note is that... number of questions wrong can't indicate the score as each and every question has a difference weight basing on its difficulty level. The score also depends on whether you got successive questions wrong etc.

I have found that the questions do not vary in difficulty as you progress through the test??
Has anybody found the same with the recent 800score.com tests??
