The Score Report
Your score report includes a total score, a scaled score for each section and the percentile ranking. The score range is different for each section. For Quantitative Skills, the score ranges between 0-144. For language skills, the score ranges between 0-96. For logical reasoning, the score ranges between 0-120. Hence the total score ranges between 0-360. The scorecard contains scores of the candidates from each of their attempts. However, the final percentile is announced and updated after all the candidates have taken their exams.
What is a scaled score?
Since the overall difficulty of the test varies, all the test forms are equated on the basis of overall difficulty level and they try to put the raw test score on a common scale. This is done to make sure that the scores can be comparable to all the candidates so that there is no impact based on different candidates getting a different set of questions. This kind of score is called a scaled score.
What is the final percentile score?
The final percentile is obviously calculated at the end of the entire academic year when all the candidates have finished taking their NMAT Exam. This is done to ensure a complete comparison across all students. Therefore, the score card that is sent to you as well as the business schools that you select are updated and sent after the end of the academic year. For 2017, the score card with updated percentile will be sent on January 17, 2017.
