You can compare your results with other people's posted in this long thread. However, only 1 test won't tell you much. Don't get discouraged! GMAT Club Tests have been taken by math gurus for a couple of years now, so these percentile scores only tell you where you stand compared to the population we have here at GMAT Club. There's still some place for practice, but you can do it!

Please go through this thread for more scores on m01 to compare to real GMAT. If you've taken prep CATs already, you might find our GMAT Score Estimator useful. See this link for details:

Could you tell me where do I stand?

28% is way too low. Could someone throw light on this?

Correlations might be helpful, but something to note is that for someone who is wll-prepared and strong in both sections will do better in any tests. For example, he/she might do well in GMAT Club, MGMAT, GMATPrep etc etc hitting >90% across all, at the same time receiving 750+. However, this will not necessary prove the tests correlate positively to actual GMAT. Nontheless, one thing is for sure, someone with strong fundamentals who has an adept test-taking ability (or has developed one), will do very well across all the exams and ultimately in GMAT. I, by no means have reached at that level, but would definitely like to reach somewhere close.

So far I’ve only taken the 1st two gmatclub tests. I found them much more challenging than any other GMAT prep tests I’ve taken so far. My plan is to keep learning from my mistakes in each test. Hopefully my scores will have improved a lot by the time I reach the second half of the test set.
The fact that each test covers the breath of the quant syllabus is a real advantage. It means you are not neglecting any particular area. It also makes it a lot easier see what areas you are weakest in.

One option would be to compare your scores with the ones submitted by those who already took the real GMAT. You can find those scores in this thread (see the previous pages).
Another option would be to use the GMAT Club Score Estimator (if you took GMAT Prep, Kaplan or MGMAT preparation tests). Here's a link:

Hope this helps.
By the way, welcome to the Club!

Be very careful of Kaplan. I have seen many times that Kaplan CAT's are harder than the real thing and that one might expect 50-100 points more on the real test. This was not true in my case. I scored as follows on my last 4 Kaplan CAT's
660
650
690
680

Studied hard, today I took the real thing and scored 560, needless to say I'm incredibly disappointed.

I don't understand this estimator,
I scored 660, 650, 690, and 680 on recent Kaplan CATs

today I got a 560 on the real thing

Do you know if the Club tests are easier at the beginning and than get harder to the end?

Done the first 11 in the last week. My almost emotional assessment on their difficulty levels is as follows:

1 - very easy
2 - easy
3/4 - average
5 - difficult
6/7/8 - insane
9/10 - difficult
11 - average

Regardless of their level of difficulty, I made an exorbitant number of careless mistakes on the first three exams. And on exams 6, 7 and 8 I had to retort to a technique that is better avoided: guessing left and right.

These challenges are fantastic.

It seems that numerous high scorers have taken the Challenges in the last 18 months, pronouncedly lowering the percentiles.

This is how my percentiles compare to percentiles from exams with similar scores taken in 2008:

M04 33/37 = 98.7% in Aug/08 vs M04 33/37 = 91% in Sep/09
M09 25/37 = 59.3% in May/08 vs M09 26/37 = 51% in Sep/09
M11 30/37 = 83.3% in Aug/08 vs M11 31/37 = 80% in Sep/09

I think how well you work under pressure has a tremendous influence on your real score. I personally work much better under pressure since it focuses me.

Results:

Test Correct Total % Correct Mean time Percentile
m25 27 37 73% 87.8788 sec 73%
m01 31 37 84% 105.4966 sec 83%
m02 34 37 92% 104.9431 sec 94%
m14 27 37 73% 118.0925 sec 68%
m15 23 31 74% 144.0578 sec 42%
m16 33 37 89% 107.5079 sec 95%
m17 34 37 92% 117.5966 sec 93%
m18 29 36 81% 110.6873 sec 68%
m19 32 37 86% 116.0503 sec 79%
m20 31 37 84% 113.4073 sec 60%
m21 29 37 78% 100.8949 sec 74%

Real GMAT was a Q51. I think if you consistently score in the 90's you are assuring yourself a 49-50 as long as you're practicing under test day environments. If you're scoring like I did (a few 90's but otherwise all over the board), you need to either improve your focus on practice tests or trust that the pressure will eliminate a lot of the careless errors on test day. I also find the GMATClub challenges to be harder (trickier).

you are right about the challenges being trickier. Further, scoring in the 90 percentile may be a sufficient condition to achieve 49+ in Q in actual GMAT; I am not sure if it is a necessary condition, though.
I took some gmat club math tests; and was a little bit depressed by the percentile. These tests are really useful as they will make one sweat and reviewing even the correct answers provides sometimes interesting insights into a quicker way of attacking the problem. Now, the moderators might really consider asking the test taker if s\he wants to see the percentile as some might find it depressing to look at the percentile. These percentile reflect only a small population (of gmat club members who take the test) and not the gmat test takers at large.
It is a good project to try to correlate the gmat club math scores with the gmat Q scaled score.

I totally agree with you. The tests are good ressources but the percentile does not have a real signification.

First of all, we can take the tests several times and then indirectly manipulate the percentile.

Second, if you compare the percentile of a guy who take the test some months ago and the percentile of the same guy who take the test today (with the same number of correct answers), we can consider a difference of 10 or 20%.

In fact it is just a result so it does not matter but the thing is, as you said, the percentile can have an impact on our moral.

So, GMAT Club Tests are obviously very useful but I am not certain that the percentile play an important role in that. Moreover, it will be hard to correlate the result with GMAT prep Q score, just because GMAT Club tests are not CAT. Consequently, IMO, the best thing to do is just to erase the percentile.

real gmat - 51 (99%)

the challenge interface was being re-done during most of this time so the built in timer wasn't working. thus you could keep going after 75 minutes. i started timing myself. scores marked with a * indicate when i went past the 75 minute mark. in some cases i spent up to 100 minutes. my goal early was on to learn how to do every question, even if it meant struggling during the test. then, from test 16 onwards or so, i was very good at doing the majority of question types. i then started to focus on test-taking strategy and would skip questions in the interest of time. by the last 3-4 challenges i was finishing a few minutes early. also, i would absolutely recommend that you go back and review each question whether you got it right or wrong. make sure you are tackling the problem the fastest way. i spent about 2 hours total on each challenge...75 taking the test and 40 minutes or so reviewing each question and re-doing questions i knew i could tackle faster.

i would really like to thank gmatclub for these challenges. w/o a doubt these challenges raised my score from 85-90% to 99%. the only other math prep i did was the last 1/3-1/4 questions in OG11 and OG quant workbook. i haven't tried mgmat, kaplan 800, etc.. but i would absolutely recommend these challenges if you're shooting for 49+ quant. well, well worth the \$79.

I'm planning on taking my exam this june (after my CFA exam) and I'll definitely do all the GMATClub math and verbal tests...
