I recently scored 750 and got 98%. I always thought that 750 was 99%?

Does it change on monthly basis or something?

Any thoughts...

The GMAT scoring adjusts based upon statistical analysis of everubody taking the test. Basically we can conclude from your score that a lot more people are getting high scores. As a result 750 has dropped to 98%.
I thing 760 is now needed fo 99%. A few years ago 740 could get you 99%.

The percentile changed in the last month or so. On my official score report with an issue date of 8/23/06, 750-800 was considered 99th percentile and 740 was considered 98th percentile. On my official score report with an issue date of 9/28/06, 760-800 was 99th and 740-750 was 98th. I also noted that 700 is now 92nd, while a month ago it was 93rd.

I believe that the score is scaled based on exams taken within the last 3 years. It certainly does appear that the scoring scale is moving up at a rapid pace. It could also reflect some weakness in the test-taking group from just over 3 years ago (when MBA applications were extremely low) that are rolling off and no longer part of the weighting.
