i believe a 59 is the highest scaled score for both verbal and quant portions of the test.

will 59Q, 41V and 50Q,50V both produce the same final score?

it is claimed that 60/60 is the highest score. But I never heard of anyone getting above 51/51 on each section (i've heard that a perfect 800 is supposed to be about 52/52). so 50/50 would be around 770/780 and 59 /41 would be...well...not feasible. 50/41, however, would be around 750 or so.

Hope it helps. L.

I got the 59 from "Sticky: Everything about GMAT Scores"
did i read that table wrong?

here is my initial question with possible scores:
is a Q40,V30 = Q50,V20?

thanks

Not sure if that is true Cookie. I doubt anyone truly knows how it balances up though.

Check this post. Hjort has come up with a formula which estimates total scores based on section scores quite well.
