|Logical Reasoning skills||0-120|
Scaled scores - All of the test forms are equated to account for any differences in overall difficulty and the raw test scores are placed on a common scale. This process ensures that scores are comparable across test forms such that the scores are not impacted by different candidates getting different test forms.
Historical Percentile scores - The historical percentile rank or score shows how a you have performed compared to all other candidates who took the exam (e.g. all candidates who took the NMAT exam) in the previous year. For example, if a candidate is said to be at the 75th percentile, the candidate scored better than 75 percent of the candidates who took the NMAT in the previous year. The historical percentiles will serve merely as a guide for schools and to you.
Final Percentile Scores: The Final Percentiles for each year are calculated at the end of the year after all candidates have completed taking the NMAT exam. Your score report and the score report that is sent to schools will be updated with the final percentiles on 15th January, 2016. Additionally, the final percentile results will be posted on the NMAT website.
