What is the actual maximum score?

Postby lmc2002002 » Mon May 21, 2018 2:58 pm

I took the April 14 test and it was my first time. I thought I got several questions wrong and my score was 930 and percentile 99. But the Wikipedia says recently the max score reported is 920 and a chart provided by the official ETS site also shows that the score starts from 920. Then what is my score? I didnt even get the perfect raw score and got 930? Could anyone tell me the truth about the max scaled score?

Congratulations! I don’t know, but my guess is that now people can get more points because there is no more oenalty for guessing

The max score is actually dependent on specific test. Therefore, people tend to compare percentiles.

I guess so. It means that 99% did worse than you

I got 970 99% but I'm pretty sure I got one question wrong.
