What your NMAT score mean? The National Medical Admission Test, or NMAT, is designed to measure abilities which are deemed useful for selection purposes in Philippine medical schools.
Part I of the NMAT yields five scores, one on each of the four aptitude subtests and their weighted summative score, the APT Composite. Part II also yields five scores, one on each of the four subtest areas and their weighted summative score, the SA Composite. The General Performance Score, or GPS, is the weighted summative score of the eight subtests.
The scores are reported in standard form and have a range of 200 to 800, a mean of 500, and a standard deviation of 100. The GPS scale has an equivalent percentile rank scale that is used to indicate the standing of examinees in comparison with the norm group. The percentile ranks have a range of 1- to 99+ with a mid-percentile rank of 50 that corresponds to the mean standard score of 500. For example, if you obtain a GPS of 500, your performance is comparable to the mean GPS of the norm group and 50% of the norm group scored lower than you. If your GPS is 539, it has a percentile rank equivalent of 65. This means that your score belongs to the scores of the upper 35% of the norm group, while 65% of the norm group scored lower than you.
