goto this site:

http://www.800score.com/score2.html#

If you keep changing the Quantitative score from 51 to 53 or anything more, while keeping verbal score fixed, you will see that total score changes. Moreover, as you can "see" it reads 0-60. It does not read 0-51.


Actually, their own updated site is here:

http://www.800score.com/score2.php

And it actually lists quantitative as 0-49 and verbal as 0-51. However, I can confirm that the link is a load of crap because I will personally confirm that it is possible to score 50Q/51V, and that the resulting score is not 800 as indicated at that site for 49/51 (although maybe GMAC will change their mind when they send out my official report :)).

Now, back to the original point. I'm saying that you didn't get 53. I'm saying that you are lying about that. I'm well aware that the theoretical score range is 0-60, but here in real life, the actual range is up to 51. Like I said before, I'd be willing to consider the possibility of a higher score, but not until I see proof.

I'll repeat what I said before. There are math wizards on this board, other boards, and around the world that I am convinced get EVERY SINGLE question correct on the GMAT, and any other exam that they take; yet I have not seen any reliable evidence that any of them has scored over 51. That makes me think you are a liar. I don't care how good you are at math, you can't get a higher score than other people that have perfect scores.

Imagine how impressed an admissions committee would be to see a 53 quant! His computer must have been smoking during his sitting. This could account for the lower verbal score.

On a serious note, according to GMAC, the highest scaled score in either section is 51. Some practice exams do give a score higher than 51 (CRACKGMAT, 800score). Who knows? Whatever the case, this forum has the verbal practise you are looking for!

You should consider moving out of fantasyland and you should also try to not lie so much.

Thanks for the advise pelihu.

Wait till I thrash your test scores and put your scores to dust. Specifically, you are my competition now.

Now I will start my Verbal practise like never before.

That not a good attitude to have buddy!! People like you have crashed over and over again with this GMAT thing.

And if have any personal issues I would advice you to take care of them before business school... somehow I don't think a lack of social skills is going to go too well with the Adcoms.

And if you can improve on Pelihu's score... good for you.

I don't want to see you go around saying that you got a 820 on the GMAT... :shock:


And you are welcome for all the good advice we gave you. :P

That sounds like a good plan- your writing is riddled with mistakes and a verbal score like Pelihu's doesn't come cheaply. Stop writing these messages and switch over to the Verbal Forum at once!

Uh, ok. Whatever. So you're not going to respond to my comment that you are a liar? How about to Kevin's comment that according to GMAC 51 is in fact the highest possible score (he's a reliable source).

How exactly are you going to thrash my score again? As far as I know I only left one point on the table, and none in verbal. Generally I'm really happy to see great scores reported here, and I'm predicting that we will see an outstanding score in a little over a week (I don't want to name anyone and put pressure on them); and there's no sense in comparing scores between people because of different backgrounds, time for preperation, personal concerns, etc.

But for you and your desire to "put my scores to dust", I'll lay it out right here. 50Q/51V (yes, that is the maximum possible V score). I'll have my official score report in a week or two and I'll let you know when my AWA comes back at 6.0 for the second time.

pehilu,
After having laid it out on the table, I probably should meekly surrender in my claim. that was an unthoughtful response from my end but it was fueled by your constant constant claims of calling me a liar.

But don't worry, my question of anyone getting 60 is still not answered. That was my focus from the very start of this thread. I have not recd an answer. Why not just scale it out of 53? or whatever is the max score if not 60.

Why should I stop pelihu from doing so? He is pointing out the right things and I agree with him 100%.

All I want to remind you of was :

a. Q51 is the max score possible and I don't believe you
b. The attitude you are showing is not good for you...
c. If you can improve on Pelihu's score.. good for you.

If you had just come in to ask for verbal help without embellishing your story, people would have been really helpful.

As for Pelihu, I know him for sometime on the board... he knows his stuff. I trust the guy.

You on the other hand... I don't know and I don't trust.

Pehilu's thread on his 780 score contains as follows:

Quote:
I was only dreaming of scoring 50/51, but apparently even higher scores are required for 800. Would 51/50 or 51/51 do it? Or do people actually score over 51 on either/both sections?


So your doubt of that last line is all cleared up with my Quant score. :-)

Ok, truce accepted. I do not think that we here at GMATclub should compare scores with one another. We can leave that to the adcoms.

Look at Kevin's post. The official word from GMAC is that 51 is the highest possible score for either Q or V is 51. That's the answer, 51 is the most you can get.

Oh, brother, you're still saying you got over 51? I take back what I said. :beat

haas_mba07,

Most of my time spent on this forum was wanting to know how one can achieve 60, if it is graded out of 60. This was my question, and still stands. This question has nothing to do with attitude issues, but inquisitiveness as to why one cannot get 60.

As i have recenlty stated, I take some of my comments back from pehilu, because it was fueled by his "first" claims of calling me liar over and over again. By calling me liar also shows some attitude issues does it not?

Or are the rest of you just giving him a supporting hand, because you know him, and he has 780 behind his back.

All said and done, I think pehilu has a great score and I wish him the best.

My takeaway if at all from this thread is as before, I need to pull my verbal socks up. But the question will remain unanswered for getting above 53 ...to a limit 60.

Good Luck ye'all.

I gave GMAC a call. They told me the highest possible math score is 51. The only reason they list up to 60 on both verbal and math is because their software adjusts the %'s annually, so if one year people tend to score much higher on the range, it can bump the raw scores to better distribute the top.

edit: For clarity, 51 is apparently the highest math score possible in the last two years. I dont know before that.

I take this seriously because it's my job to do so. If my students ask me about the exam, I want to be able to give them accurate, timely information. Pelihu happens to be right on this issue, even if diplomacy is not always his strong suit. :wink:

Have you noticed that there is a wide range of Verbal Scores (45-51) that correspond to 99% percentile, but only one Quant. Score (51) that does so? This is also the case in the GRE exam.

Why dont you just scan in your score report up and put this all to rest? Or upload the PDF.
