There is a free floating range of +/- 10 points for similar raw scores.
i.e. I have a 48/38 and I got a 710.
Someone else with a 48/38 got a 700.
We don't know the exact algorithm, nor do we know what problems are experimental vs what problems are scored.
Don't lose any sleep over it. Just accept there is a small free floating range for similar raw scores.
I was fortunate enough to get a 730 (Q50 V40). Now I don't mean to be greedy or anything, but I was just wondering why some people with the same score breakout scored a 740 instead! And these were people that took the test just weeks prior to my test. Any info would be great. It just seems odd... I can see how the percentile (i.e. 96%) might go down depending on the curve, but I thought the pure # would be the same?
My math and verbal breakout percentiles were the same too.. 93% & 89% respectively.
