Hi Leah,

Long time no chat--I hope your summer went well, and that you are still responding to queries here. I noticed that the official GMAT online tests were updated to include the old "hide answer/show answer/your answer" functionality from the GMATPrep software, instead of showing your answer and the correct answer right away, which is great and has helped my students immensely--thank you for your help with that issue.

My question today is about GMAT percentiles. Normally in early July of each year, GMAC releases a new set of percentiles. I have been checking in weekly to see whether they are updated, but we are nearing the end of August and still, no updates.

So my question is: is GMAC going to be updating its score percentile page soon?

Thanks!

-Brian

Dear OfficialGMAT

Passed GMAT yesterday. I completely disagree with one of the Quant questions. It involved reasoning from an American-style number division like this:

But neither in your study materials nor in your GMATPrep I did not find it. Most people who studied math using Russian books don't know how to do this. We are doing this way:

Why was this question of your Quant section not adaptive? It puts into a disadvantage test-takers who studied different notation of a number division. And, as I believe, this question was marked as "Easy", it significantly hurt my score


Does anyone know whether what this post has provided is a legitimate concern while taking the official test?

The post states that this testtaker was unfairly disadvantaged because they had to deal with an "America style" division method and that the Russian method the testtaker was used to proved to be problematic.

It is understood that the official test follows US-style spelling and other conventions. Therefore, testtakers should be familiar with these styles.

However, this is the first time I read that an actual question on the quantitative section was problematic due to different conventions. Very interesting and would be helpful to know thoughts.

GMAC have tried making the test more user-friendly and using familiar units such as km instead of miles in Europe and Euro instead of $ or comma instead of a period in quant and some things in verbal. However there will likely remain many more subtle western and American aspects that GMAC is probably not even aware of....
