Q51+ Possible on GMAT ? [#permalink]

On the Columbia Business School MSc Financial Economics student profile page, the average GMAT quantitative percentile is mentioned as 98.6.
Currently Q51 = 97%ile and over the last 5 years Q51 was 98% ile. So unless someone scored a Q52 or more 98.6% is not possible.
What makes this possible is people applying to this program are super quants who want to work on wall street .

Earlier 51 used to be 99th percentile and then later on it became 98th percentile. Last year it was 97 percentile. 52 is not possible because if you get all the questions right in GMATPrep it will still give you 51.

That might be correct however the details reflect are the statistics of last year when Q51 was NOT 99% ile. When you send your official scores, or print a PDF record the percentiles are updated to the latest percentile. So the only possibility is someone scored Q51 when it was still 99%ile and send the old PDF as unofficial score . Looks unlikely.

That's right - highest is Q51. As each year goes by and more and more people do well on the math section - the percentile for the highest math score goes a bit lower -- especially as the proportion of test takers coming from math-intensive areas of China and India increases.

So with this in mind, how does one stand out more next to one's competition? Answer: Verbal.

Sounds like a good premise for a Critical Reasoning - Resolve The paradox question...

I guess 51 is the highest possible score in either section in the GMAT.
