So i noticed that the GMAC revised their percentiles recently. Obviously shifting the Quant down and keeping the verbal relatively the same.

See here: http://www.mba.com/the-gmat/gmat-scores ... means.aspx

Q49 just to break the 80th percentile?!?!?! That is insane.

I recently took the GMAT and it was held to this scale. Now my Q44 is held at a MUCH lower percentile, as is my overall 700.

Are adcoms realizing this trend of increasing Quant scores? Now I'm concerned that my Quant just isn't good enough (Obviously I know about the whole holistic approach. But lets face it, scores are important)

To me it seems as if the 80/80 split is becoming a bit uneven.

Anyone ave any info or opinions?!?!

I have read the MGMAT article addressing this, but wanted to get some other opinions. Now im dreading the fact that I may need to retake the test.

Thanks for posting!
The previous percentiles are available here by the way: gmat-scores-83890.html

EDIT: quick look shows fairly small changes (quant is only 2 percentile points but quite a change in the last year). I think the scores will have to be updated (and perhaps the Q and V will go up to 60 instead of 51 they are capped at today)

Appreciate that BB.

What are your thoughts?

Do you think this hasn't changed much?

Are you in agreement with getting in the "sixtieth" as Stacy and MGMAT mentioned?

Yes, there are numerous examples of people with weak section scores that have been able to get into even quant heavy schools such as Wharton and Booth. So I definitely agree that a certain score will not necessarily keep you out. There are only so many boring quant-heavy dudes you can have in the program (no offence to all those boring dudes LOL)
