#### Attempting all IR questions

Mon Nov 30, 2015 7:52 am
Hello ,

Would like to know if it is safe , if we managed to do 10 questions out of 12 in IR sections.

furthur to add if we get a question wrong in multi question type. (sub question of a main questions). we still get credit of doing that question or end up in making negative marks . whats a penalty of doing a main question wrong or its sub-types in IR .

Thank you ,

Jai.

If by "safe," you're asking if it's a reasonable strategy to answer 10/12 questions, the answer is 'yes.' From the GMATPrep software, we know it's possible to get a perfect score without correctly answering every question. (And on the actual exam, there will be experimental questions, though there will be no way to determine which ones those are.) One caveat: you may see a complicated prompt that you want to skip, but it turns out that, after skipping the first question, there are more questions associated with the prompt. So beware.

Last, there is no partial credit on IR. If a question asks you to evaluate three statements, and you correctly evaluate 2/3, you receive no credit for the question.

Hi jai123oct,

Many Business Schools have publicly stated that they do not consider an applicant's IR score when evaluating an application, so you likely have nothing to worry about when it comes to your IR score.

1) Have you taken the Official GMAT or any practice CATs yet?
2) How have you scored (including the Essay and IR sections)?

3) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
4) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
5) What is your score goal?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
