As promised. Click on link to see the score results (bottom third of the form letter that I rec’d.)
had a friend who told me when he scored in the 99th percentile on the lsat, he received a brochure from mensa in the mail a month or so later. have u gotten any literature from them yet or was he bsing me?
I haven’t taken the LSAT, so I wouldn’t know. However, I wouldn’t think that the LSAT would release names of who scored what percentile, so I doubt your friend’s claim. There are privacy issues involved, yes? Besides, everyone knows about Mensa, especially people smart enough to score 99th percentile on any of the standardized tests. I don’t think Mensa has any problems attracting members, or any financial need to recruit aggressively.
I myself have never received any such brochures, and I’ve taken the GRE, the GMAT and the MAT tests this year.
Have a nice day.

Hi! What scaled score I would need to get the 50 % , all I need is the 50 %. It is true that your undergraduate GPA counts ? My GPA is 3.6, so could you please help me to understand this better ? How many right questions do I have to have????
Scaled score of 400 is the mean, or 50th percentile.
GPA isn’t a factor in the exam. It may be an admissions factor for graduate school.
I took the MAT test on June 19, 2013. First let me say I do not like these types of test. They are literacy test not intelligent test. IQ and Intelligence test are not true test for ones cognitive functional ability but more a test for how much accumulated knowledge one has; the more information you have acquired and stored the better you will score. Intelligence by definition: 1.The ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills. If one has no acquired human knowledge then how can one be tested on his or her innate abilities.
I suffered through the test because my intellect is abstract and multifunctional not linear. I had to resort to my best friend and helper Jesus Christ. All during the test I asked Jesus for help and when I finished I received my grade. I then went to the administrator and asked what the passing grade was, she replied 383, I made a 384; there is a God I exclaimed out loud and His name is Jesus and He lives. In order to get through this world you need a relationship with Him and call on him every time you need legitimate help.
Sorry first paragraph should read:

I just took a practice MAT to see how I’d do…paid $30 on the Pearson site, and probably should have tried a couple free tests first, as I had no idea what I was getting into. Anyway, the practice test didn’t give me a score, just a percentile range – looks like 75-95%ish. Any idea what that would be score-wise? I assumed the 50th percentile is where the 400’s lie…but after seeing your score/percent, am unsure. It isn’t within a specific group, just the MAT norm group.
This blog is great, btw. I plan to do some more practicing just to get in the groove of the different types of analogies.
Here’s a link to an alleged conversion from scaled score to raw score.
Thank you for your kind words, and best of luck.
