This topic has 1 expert reply and 1 member reply puravshah1234 Newbie | Next Rank: 10 Posts Joined 02 Aug 2015 Posted: 1 messages #### Different percentile score for same scaled score? 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? ### GMAT/MBA Expert DavidG@VeritasPrep Legendary Member Joined 14 Jan 2015 Posted: 2667 messages Followed by: 120 members Upvotes: 1153 GMAT Score: 770 Thu Oct 08, 2015 8:05 am puravshah1234 wrote: Hi, I was just wondering if it is possible for two people with the same scaled score to get a different percentile score?

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.
