can someone explain this to me

MATHS 18/37 ------>46
VERBAL 21/41 ------>23

In both the cases the efficiency is around 50%.

the scaled scores (22, 29, etc) convert to the 800 score scale in a way that is ambiguous at best. the GMAC (the body that administers the GMAT) doesn't release their scoring algorithm to anyone outside, including 3rd party test preps. As such, scores you get from different test schools aren't directly comparable.

I've stopped trying to interpret those numbers myself, I focus on the percentile rankings, which translate in a meaningful way into the 800 score
