Doubt with regards to RAW scores

Post Sun Aug 26, 2012 5:36 pm
Good Day Miss Rebecca,

I was going through this forum and saw a lot of 690s with a split of Q48 and V35. I have the same split but a score of 670. Is it possible to have different scores with the same split?

Regards.

There are many factors that calculate into your total score, so it would be impossible to say exactly what causes the 10 or 20 point split in your specific case. Regardless, university admissions professionals are quite accustomed to the GMAT score scale, and it would be unlikely to have an affect on the admissions process. Remember, admissions professionals look at your full application. Good luck!

Hello Miss Rebecca,

Thank you for your reply. In my case it seems that the difference is 20 points. With colleges preferring to admit candidates with a higher score, I fear that these 20 points might go against me. In any case, would it be possible to advise why there is a difference in the total score with the same split? If it is not something that I need to know then you can skip this question Smile.

I hope that other factors make up for this 10/20 point difference.

Thank you for your time.

Best Regards.
