How is the GMAT scored?

by AkankshaBlahblah » Mon Oct 12, 2020 11:56 pm
Hi- I wrote my GMAT a couple of days back as a second attempt. After my first attempt went terribly, I took about a month to prepare again and took the in-person test. While the test was going on, I was fairly certain that I was getting the answers right. In the quant section especially, I was so sure that I got most of them right, so I was expecting somewhere around Q45 or Q46. However, when the test ended, I found that I had received Q33, which is really something I can't comprehend. I am sure that my quant section was not a bungle, so there must be something that I am not getting.

Can anyone please help me understand how the GMAT section is scored? That would be a great help for me to take care of every error.
