Do schools receive percentile rankings or only the raw scores from the 800 point scale?

Does anyone know how low your Quant percentile can be and still be 800? I got 800 Q but percentile was only 92% (I KNEW I missed a few!)

Thanks a lot

Some schools ask for the percentile as well asthe scores in your application itself. As for reporting by ETS, I think it will look just likethe score report each of us gets.

The percentile is only based on the final score, not on how many you missed or got correctly. You will stilll get 92% for 800 even though you missed three questions or got all of them correct.

Schools receive the percentiles I think. Even if they dont, in most of webapps of universities, you are asked to enter the percentile yourself.
