The certificate shows your results on two scales:
– the percentile rank
– the dMAT score
The percentile rank indicates what percentage of the other participants received a lower or equally good result. For example, a percentile rank of 70 means: 70% of all participants got a lower score or the same score while 30% achieved a higher score. A university can use the percentile rank for a cut score (e.g. select the 10 % best applicants).
The dMAT score is a conversiona of the total number of correct answers to to a value between 0 and 200. The mean (average) is 100. The dMAT score can be used to compare results between all test modules and item groups. The dMAT score is shown for the core module and the subject module respectively.
The total score results from the addition of both values.
Because the dMAT is a standardised test, both scores always refer to all participants (at all test centres and on each test date).
Universities decide individually how to use the dMAT results. Please inform yourself directly via the websites of the universities.
The dMAT certificate is valid indefinitely. As soon as the results are available, you can download your certificate in your participant portal.
