Hi all,

I know the curve is different for each test, but approximately how many wrong can you get in each category, verbal and math, and still have a 1600?

What I mean is, how many answers can you put down that are incorrect and still get an 800 in each section?

How many answers can you omit and still score a 1600?

If you guys answer any of those questions, I would be grateful. So thanks to you ahead of time.

Generally you can miss 1 math, 2 verbal. The math is either 0 or 1, no higher than that.

Sometimes [not too often] you can omit 3 verbal or miss 3/omit 4 and still pull the 800.

That's as lenient as it will get though.
