Does anybody know the most current GMAT score percentiles? I'm just curious how they are changing.

I took the GMAT last summer ('07) and I'm wondering how much the other relative scores have changed.

I know ... its kind of silly, I'm just curious.

Follow-up: I just reordered a score report for another school and i got to see how things changed (they didn't, for the most part).

The only interesting thing: I got a 6.0 AWA in 2007 and it was 95th percentile. On my new score report, that same 6.0 has dropped me to 87th percentile.

One of the biggest changes is that 47Q will no longer get you 80% in quant. You now need a 48Q if you want to exceed the 80 benchmark.

48Q - 84%
47Q - 78% or so

Also, 750 is no longer 99%
760-800 is 99%

That dropoff is amazing considering that 51 is 99th percentile (and generally considered to be a "perfect" Q section).

Wow, that's harsh.

FWIW I don't even pay attention to the new percentiles. I haven't ordered any new score reports for myself so I report the percentiles I got for my exam in Dec 2007.

I think that people need to understand that the percentile that you receive the day you took the test is your percentile forever. I scored a 750 (98th percentile) but I know that as time goes on, a 750 will turn into a 97th percentile.......96th.....etc.

This is the reason that schools ask for your percentile. Because a 750 in 2004 and a 750 in 2008 are two very different scores.

Tarmac,

By the way, I also took the test last December and I remember referencing you posts on gmatclub very frequently. I am happy that you got such an awesome score and look forward to apply with you this season.

Thanks! I thought I had it made in the shade. Unfortunately, I have learned over this application process that a 770 probably helps very little over a 710 :) Good luck this season.
