Thu Oct 08, 2015 2:47 am Hi, I was just wondering if it is possible for two people with the same scaled score to get a different percentile score? For example, is it possible for a quant score of 50 to be in the 87th and 92nd percentile? Or are all Q50 scores given the same percentile? Need free GMAT or MBA advice from an expert?

If you compare the same scaled score in a gap of about 1-2 years than it's possible because the data of performers keeps changing and it may change substantially over a period of 1 to 2 years,

But if you take two test recently then such a change in percentile is impossible.
