You cannot skip any questions as GMAT test is question-adaptive. So, you can go to the next question only if you answer the current one and cannot wander within a section. If you go wrong in one question, the difficulty level drops for the next and thereby the scores too witness a decline.
Your GMAT score is determined based on the number of questions you answer correctly, the number of difficult questions you get right and the number of questions you answer.
Medium difficulty questions come at the beginning of each section and are weighted more heavily than those that come at the end.
Business schools tend to focus on your overall (or composite) score. The composite score includes both the Math and Verbal sections of the test and ranges from 200 to 800 in 10-point increments. The AWA section is scored on a scale of 0 to 6 and IR Section is scored on a scale of 1 to 8. Both the AWA and the IR Sections are not included in your composite score.
