Hey guys,

Got 50 on the quantitative section and I am in the 94% percentile? Could that be true?

btw a friend of mine got 51 on quantitative and is in the 98%?

Why is 51 not 99% percentile and why is 50 so "low"?

Hi Pisco,

Yes that could be true, as the GMAT is getting older the percentiles corresponding to a particular score is getting lower. For example, 5 - 6 years back a 750 score corresponded to 99% percentile, but now it corresponds to 98% percentile. A possible reason could be that now a days a larger number of people are getting higher scores. 94%, anytime, is an awesome percentile, and congrats for that. All the best for your apps !!!

Don't get too hung up on the percentiles. They are what they are:
