### Can this CAT score be correct

by PS2011 » Mon Mar 07, 2011 6:20 am
My GMAT is next week. I just gave a MGMAT CAT and got this score. Not sure if the CAT scoring is accurate. To calrify, I got only 20/37 in Quant(Primarily ran out of time towards the end for 5-6 Q/s) & 29/41 in verbal.

TYPE SCORE ESTIMATED PERCENTILE RANK
Quantitative 41 64 %
Verbal 41 93 %
Total 680 90 %

How can I get 41 scaled score for 64% percentile, should have been lower?

I'm really not in a position to say whether MGMAT scores are indicative of your final score, but that particular part *Q41 = 64%) is about right. According to the scoreing tables of the OG 12th ed, a score of 41 is in the 61 percentile, and the 63% (closer to your performance) merits a 42.

Generally speaking, quant raw scores are usually greater than verbal raw scores on the GMAT. the same 63% precentile will get you a 42 in quantitative, but only a 32 on verbal.

My suggestion is you take the GMATPrep downloaded from www.mba.com to get a more realistic perspective of where you stand.
