I don't understand my Kaplan score, can somebody help me? [#permalink] New post 26 Feb 2013, 16:14
Hello!

After 3 months of preparation, I just took my 1st Kaplan CAT and I am pleasantly surprise by the score: 690, with 92 percentile for Quant and 53 for Verbal. However, I have 2 questions that I am unable to solve:

1- I failed to find the "real scores" of each part (the ones scaled on 51) in the Kaplan report... Can anyone tell me how to find them please?

2- I don't understand how can I score 690 with a 53 percentile for Verbal... Does anyone have an explanation for this?

Thanks everyone.

Am not sure about the first point as i have never taken Kaplan test.
Regarding the second point:
Yes you can get a 690 with 53 percentile in Verbal

My GMAT score was 700 with a 31 in Verbal which was 58 percentile!

Dont rely on Kaplan scores. Use them for practice. Recently few folks are seeing their scores inflated. Kaplan tests are tough, so you get more questions wrong, but they adjust your score accordingly. What are your GMATPREP/MGMAT scores?
