GMAT choice submission

by vineetmittal04 » Sat Jun 07, 2014 5:13 am
Today I gave a MGMAT test. When I was on the last question of the quant section, time was running out. I had selected the choice but couldn't confirm it because the time ran out instantly. The section was submitted but when I reviewed the test, that last question came "NA" (Not Attempted). I thought that if we don't confirm but have selected the choice, it will be automatically confirmed as the time runs out for the section but this wasn't so.

Can anyone please tell me that this is the case for MGMAT tests only or it will happen for real GMAT as well? Do we have to confirm the last question in the section before time runs out or it will be automatically confirmed ?

Hi vineetmittal04,

Yes, on the Official GMAT, as long as you have "bubbled" the circle, then you will be credited with answering the question.

That's interesting that the MGMAT CAT did not function in that way. It might be a minor tech issue on your side, but the effect on your score would have been negligible, so it's not anything to get too upset about. You could contact reps from that company in the "GMAT Test Prep Company" Sub-Forum (on this site) with any questions.
