What does this mean for my potential score?

A real GMAT score report considers the percentage of questions you got right, and then slightly adjusts the point value of each individual question based on its difficulty. “Point weight” can have a very significant impact on your score. But you can get a very rough approximate score by calculating the percentage on your own.

Both the Quant and Verbal sections have their own individual subscores. These subscores have a scaled score range of 0 to 60. So if you get, say, 70% of your Quant questions right on this test, your very rough estimated subscore for Quant would be 70% of the 60 point range (0.7*60 = 42).

Using your Verbal and Quantitative percentages, you can also make this kind of imperfect-but-helpful estimate for your whole composite score on this GMAT practice test. How, you may ask? Well, Magoosh actually has a chart for this! Check out the GMAT score chart in Sharat’s blog post “How to Calculate GMAT Scores”.
