Myth: If you get easy questions after initial 2-3 questions then it implies that you are getting the initial answers wrong.
Well don’t judge the outcome too fast. Even if you are getting the initial answers wrong, you have a good chance to bounce back, get back to right answers, and enter the 650-720 zone. Here are some reasons why you are getting easy questions after initial 2-3 questions.
Familiar Question Type
The recognition of a question type does not necessarily mean that you know the answer or the questions type is easy. The manner in which the questions are framed might create a feeling that you have seen this question earlier in Official GMAT Guide or in one of the top GMAT test prep training session. Instead of worrying about the difficulty of the question type, focus on getting the question right in the prescribed 2 min time.
Recognizing Easy Question
Every GMAT test will have at least 3-5% trial questions, and they would be randomly placed across the test in various sections. The easy question in the initial phase of the test might just be these questions. Since you cannot predict the location of these questions, attempt all the questions with utmost importance.
The myth arose from the adaptive nature of GMAT tests. It is true that in GMAT the first question will be of medium difficulty, and if you get it wrong, a question from the lesser difficulty pool will be presented. However, if an easy question presents itself occasionally, then you have nothing to worry. Keep your cool and get it right.
