#### Verbal. How many incorrect for 80 percentile

Wed Jan 23, 2008 9:13 pm
I want to get 80+ percentile in verbal...So i would like to know how many questions can i answer incorrectly and still be ok. I know there is no single way to answer that because the score depends on a lot of factors. But can anyone still give me a number ? 10 ? 15 ?

Moved this discussion to the Verbal forum area...

You are correct--there is no way to answer your question, since it really depends on a number of factors.

Try not to get too hung up over hit rates to achieve a certain score. Take the test one question at a time and try to get every question you see correct.
