    NMAT Percentile vs Scaled Score

    NMAT Percentile Score vs Scaled Score

    Percentile Score

    Percentile score acts like a scale meter i.e. it tells a candidate’s performance in comparison to the total number of candidates who have appeared for NMAT. It provides essential information like passed candidates, number of appeared candidates, possible cut off the exam, and so on. For example: if a candidate secures 80th rank, then it means that the candidate has scored 80% better than other test takers.

    Scaled Score

    All raw test scores are equated and placed on a common scale in order to rule out any difficulty in overall calculation. This process by GMAC ensures that scores are comparable across test forms and are not impacted by candidates opting for different test forms.
