Miller Analogies Test Raw Score to Percentile

A Miller Analogies Test raw score to percentile conversion is not easy to come by. Pearson no longer uses or releases raw scores for students. Pearson has also not provided any official data that would make it easy to convert scores yourself. However, I have collected what resources are available to give you a rough estimate. Here we go…

MAT score conversion

If you have not read the blog on MAT old scores conversion, I would definitely suggest it; it will explain how I came by this information, and the limits of what you can expect from it. Anyway, to convert your MAT raw score to a percentile, you can start by converting it to a scaled score. 

Raw Score Scaled Score Raw Score Scaled Score
1 <306 50 413
2 311 51 415
3 315 52 417
4 320 53 418
5 323 54 419
6 326 55 421
7 329 56 422
8 332 57 424
9 335 58 426
10 337 59 427
11 339 60 428
12 342 61 429
13 345 62 431
14 347 63 433
15 350 64 434
16 353 65 436
17 355 66 438
18 357 67 439
19 360 68 441
20 363 69 443
21 375 70 444
22 367 71 446
23 369 72 448
24 371 73 450
25 373 74 452
26 375 75 454
27 377 76 456
28 379 77 458
29 381 78 460
30 383 79 462
31 384 80 464
32 386 81 466
33 388 82 469
34 389 83 471
35 391 84 473
36 393 85 477
37 394 86 480
38 396 87 484
39 397 88 489
40 399 89 493
41 400 90 498
42 402 91 503
43 403 92 508
44 405 93 512
45 406 94 517
46 408 95 519
47 409 96 524
48 411 97 528
49 412 98 533
99 >537

Once you have a scaled score, you can estimate your score percentile here:

  • 400-404 = 50th percentile
  • 405-409 = 60th percentile
  • 410-415 = 70th percentile
  • 416-420 = 80th percentile
  • 421-425 = 90th percentile
  • 430-440 = 95th percentile
  • 450-600 = 99th percentile

Unfortunately, ranges are the best estimates that can be provided at this time. I’ve gone through all the available information in terms of Pearson MAT resources, official practice tests, High IQ societies (which have MAT score information), and anything else I could find from a reliable source, such as colleges and universities.

Thus far, the information from multiple sources seems to corroborate. I can also say from personal experience that my number of correct answers on practice tests (raw score) was between 70-76, my official MAT score was 454, and my percentile rank was 98th. Thus, most of this information lined up pretty closely when I compare it to my own scoring.

I hope you find it similarly useful.

If you’d like to learn more about the MAT scoring, I also recommend looking at our Miller Analogies Bell Curve article. It’s full of a ton of information that really helps you understand how these percentile rankings work.

    I seem to remember (50 years ago)
     a table of average MAT scores for
    different college majors 
    or occupations.  Can you direct me to
    an old or new version
    Of that table?

      Hi Ken 🙂

      While I wasn’t able to locate a table like the one you described, here is a link to Pearson’s conversion table for GRE and MAT scores. Using that as a guide, you can then compare scores per graduate program major using the information we provide on https://magoosh.com/gre/2016/gre-scores-by-program-major/ to . 🙂 I know this isn’t a perfect solution, but I hope these resources help! 🙂
