Have the percentiles changed? [#permalink] New post 13 Oct 2006, 05:45
I'm curious if the percentiles have changed since I took the exam several months ago.

If you recieved the PDF score report you should have them in there. Anyone who has taken the test recently, what does your official score report list?


Verbal:

99% ... 45-60
97% ... 44
97% ... 43
96 ... 42
93 .... 41
90 .... 40
89 .... 39
85 .... 38
83 .... 37
81 .... 36
76 .... 35
72 .... 34
69 .... 33
67 .... 32
61 ... 31
59 ... 30

Quant:

99% .... 51-60
95% .... 50
90% .... 49
86% .... 48
82% .... 47
80% .... 46
78% .... 45
74% .... 44
71% .... 43
67% .... 42
65% .... 41
63% .... 40
58% .... 39
56% .... 38

OVerall

99... 750+
98 .... 740
97 .,... 730
96 .... 720
94 ... 710
93 ... 700
91 ... 690
89 ... 680
88 ... 670
86 ... 660
84 ... 650

The means on my score report:

Verbal: 46%, 27.3

yes, they have changed slightly. a friend of mine just took GMAT about 3-4 weeks ago and she got a 750. that was a 98% on her score report. i think they have shifted just a bit... downward. a 750 used to be the cutoff for 99%.

Yes they have.

Overall:

99% - 760-800
98% - 740-750
97% - 730
96% - 720
94% - 710
92% - 700
91% - 690
mean - 47%/526.6

Verbal
99% - 46-60
98% - 45
97% - 43-44
95% - 42
93% - 41
90% - 40
mean - 46%/27.3

Quant
99% - 51-60
95% - 50
90% - 49
86% - 48
82% - 47
80% - 46
mean - 45%/35.0

Easy to see why single point moves toward the top of Q move the overall score so much. A single point lost from 51 to 50 to 49 results in a 5% difference in percentile. That's a lot of people.

Yes. I did notice that while 740 is 98%, 750 can be 98 or 99. My guess is perhaps some internal difficulty adjustment leads to the same score belonging to 2 different percentiles.
