    Hi, SDNers~
    I took DAT test today. I think that it was so difficult. I have a question about both standard score and percentile. For instance, I got 20 and my friend got 22 on PAT section, but my percentile is 96.7 and her percentile is 90. Do you know why there is such a difference of percencile between ours?

    The admission committee usually considers the score or the percentile? What is more important factor? And if the percentile is more crucial, do you know why people tend to only say about the standard score ?

    The schools receive your standardized scores only. There is variation among different test versions that might account for differences in percentiles, I'm not sure :)
