Hi Guys,

I have taken 2

Kaplan Test, and both gave me 74 in Verbal plus 48 and 66 in Quant, with total 580 and 630 scores.

First, just to be sure, this means 74 percentile? Because

Kaplan dosen't use that expresion, instead they talk about "percentage below", so I'm not 100% sure it's the same.

Then I gave real GMAt yesterday, with Percentile 50 in both, scores Q40/V28 so I'm a little dissapointed and specially with Verbal.

Any comments about the first question of

Kaplan expression?

What you think about the difference?

Finnaly, this are "unoffcial scores" They can change?

Thanks

Hi ewallach,

"percent below" and "percentile" are the same statistic. Sorry that your real test wasn't quite up to the scores you saw on the CATs--it's very hard to make a CAT that's a perfect predictor, simply because no mock test can accurately capture the stresses and challenges of the real exam.

To answer your other question, your "unofficial scores" will be your final scores in the overwhelming majority of cases. Basically, the only way your score could change is if a question is found to have an error, and is discounted from your score--I've never personally seen this happen to one of my students.

Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing

Kaplan!
