Does anyone know where I can find a more up-to-date version of the GMAT scoring grid? The one I'm looking at is from about 1 year ago, but I have to imagine a more recent one exists somewhere. Here is the link: https://www.prepscholar.com/gmat/blog/g ... ring-grid/

In doing some quick comparisons against scores that people on this forum report and what the grid would imply, there seems to be some disconnect, which I can only attribute to the data being stale.

No, the data are not too old to use. The errors, if any, lie in the grid itself or are due to the normal variation of scaled scores on the GMAT.

1. The GMAT generates a score at the end of both the quantitative and verbal sections. These scores are on a continuous scale.
2. These scores are mapped onto an internal scale. Let's call these scores "internal scores".
3. These internal scores are combined to arrive at a total (internal) score.
4. All these scores are then converted to the scaled scores that are exposed to the test taker (6 to 51 for quant and verbal, and 200-800 for the total).

The internal scales are slightly more accurate than the ones exposed to you. For example, let's say two people got a Q49 each. Now, a Q49 could indicate a performance level anywhere between 74% and 85% (Q50 is 85%), so it's entirely possible that one of them got a "low" Q49 and the other got a "high" Q49. This is the reason that you don't always see the same total for the same score combinations.

You can take a look at this article to see how this could impact you. Use the scoring grid you have (there is one on GMAT Club as well) as indicative, but not as the final word.
