If you give the correct answer then next question will be more difficult. When you respond incorrectly, you will typically be given less difficult questions. Moreover, you are not allowed to change answers to previous questions as you proceed through the test, and you are not allowed to skip questions.

It varies from school to school so it’s always better to check your school in which you are interested. However, the standard scores for the Verbal Section and Quantitative Sections are around 500. Scoring in Analytical Writing Assessment part is not predictable and there are no standard measures. Two readers will read each essay written by you, who will be authors or professors hired to judge your writing skills. Essays are judged for their overall impact.
