GMAT Tip of the Week: If you’re running out of time at the end of a section, you may be wondering whether you should guess or simply leave the final few questions unanswered. According to the way the GMAT is scored, it’s actually better for you to guess, even if you get the final few questions wrong, than to leave them blank. How much can leaving questions at the end unanswered damage your score? According to the GMAC (the makers of the GMAT), someone who was on track to score in the 91st percentile will drop to the 77th percentile by leaving just five questions unanswered. So, there you go — to improve your GMAT results, answer every question!
