The Manhattan Prep GMAT Score Calculator

Select a desired score from the GMAT Score Calculator drop-down and the table will show you all of the Verbal (column) + Quant (row) scoring combinations that lead to that score. (You may need to scroll down or sideways to see all score combos—there are a lot of them!)

Did you know? It’s possible for one pair of sub-scores to map to as many as three different Total scores. For instance, if you look up the pair of scores Verbal 41, Quant 49 on the table, you will see a score of 730. On the test, though, this pair of scores (V41, Q49) can actually map to a 720, a 730, or a 740. Click here to learn more.

P.S. It’s not a mistake that V43 is missing. That score is not possible on the current GMAT.

Ever since business schools have started accepting GRE scores for admission, GRE to GMAT score conversion has become important for test takers as well as the schools. While business schools use to it compare applicants between GMAT and GRE, students use it to understand their performance with GMAT takers.

Thankfully, the ETS provides a great GRE comparison tool for business schools . You just­ have to put in your GRE scores (old or new score scale) and the tool provides a predicted GMAT total score. The tool was last updated in 2013.

We have prepared a summarized score conversion chart based on the results from the tool. You can use our chart for comparison or use the tool provided by ETS.

For those of you interested in statistics, the GMAT scores are predicted based on a multiple linear regression equation. The GRE score is used as the predictor (independent) variable while the GMAT score is used as the predicted (dependent) variable. The equation to predict GMAT score is:

GMAT Score = -2080.75 + 6.38*GRE Verbal Score + 10.62*GRE Quant Score

The correlation of the two scores based on the above equation is 0.916 which is pretty healthy.

While the table and formula may be used to compare scores, GRE and GMAT are two very different exams. Hence, the comparison though valid, is not perfect. However, the scores do relate closely to each other and serve as an extremely easy benchmark for comparison.

Another way to compare your score is by checking GRE score percentiles with GMAT score percentiles. Again, it is not the best way to compare performance since the applicant pool on both sides is completely different. So, an 80 percentile score on the GRE isn’t the same as an 80 percentile score on the GMAT. But it serves as a rough indicator of sorts.

Business schools who use both scores might rely on the ETS tool along with their own assessments for score conversion between the applicant pool. You can use the GRE to GMAT score conversion table to gauge your own performance and align your application accordingly.

GRE score conversion to GMAT

The number of MBA applicants approaching us with GRE exam scores is small, but increasing. We wrote another topic on this earlier where we covered the history, programs that accept GRE scores and the cost differential (read it here –> GRE vs GMAT ).

In this post, we cover an important aspect that we only touched upon in the earlier post. How to convert GRE score to GMAT? Is there a conversion chart of calculation formula to make life easy for applicants?

Fortunately there is a GRE to GMAT score conversion chart and an underlying calculation formula as well. We describe both and highlight the limitations as well, so you can choose whatever you prefer.

GRE to GMAT score Calculation Formula

If you are keen to understand the rationale behind the chart, here’s the GRE to GMAT score calculation formula.
 
GMAT Total score =
– 2080.75 + (6.38 * GRE Verbal Reasoning score) + (10.62 * GRE Quantitative Reasoning score)
 
This is a linear regression equation that considers the GRE Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores as the independent / predictor parameters, while the GMAT score is the dependent / predicted parameter.

If you are statistically inclined and wondering about the accuracy of this forumula, the correlation between the independent and dependent variables in this equation is .916, which is pretty good.

However it is not 100% accurate as there are approximations and adjustments involved. There are limitations that you need to be aware of.

You’ll realise that this formula doesn’t generate the exact values that you see in the chart. In fact, you’d get GMAT scores below 200 and above 800 as well. The results of the GRE to GMAT calculation formula have been rounded off to the reflect the 10 point increments and bring it within the 200-800 score range.

Also, the sample pool of scores used is considerably small (472 examinees) compared to the actual pool of GRE and GMAT test takers. This sample pool had a highest GMAT score of 780 (i.e. no perfect 800 scorers were included).

Comparing GRE percentiles to GMAT score percentiles

This is another option if you want to get an idea of where you fall within the general pool of test takers. Here’s more on GRE score percentiles .

But this has limitations too. The pool of GRE test takers isn’t the same as GMAT pool.

Before the story of GRE getting into what was traditionally the GMAT turf is recent. A bigger chunk of GRE score recipients still target non-MBA programs and have significantly different profiles (age, skills, qualifications, aspirations, aptitude for competitive exams). Not to mention the fact that the formats and syllabus of the two exams have significant differences.

So it wouldn’t be appropriate to assume that a GRE 90 percentile score is the exact equivalent of a GMAT 90 percentile score.

Bschools that accept both, GRE scores and GMAT scores, are aware of these differences. Apart from using the charts suggested by the ETS team, they might have their own mappings and adjustments, for all we know.

    Thanks, Nilesh. Good luck with your decision. Btw, I had no clue what KUTGW meant and had to look it up on Google.
