Why 53 Countries Beat The U.S. On The GMAT

dunce_cap copyThe absolute lowest average scores are those under 400. There are 28 countries where test takers scored less than a 400 on average in the 2012-2013 testing year ended June 30th. The bottom of the barrel? Afghanistan, where 18 tests were taken for an average score of only 307. The country did much better in the past, averaging scores of 382 a year earlier and 439 in the 2009-2010 testing year.

Saudi Arabia, which had the second lowest average score this past year, posted the second lowest average at 311, a ten-point improvement over the 301 average it had in the 2011-2012 testing year. The Saudi result is much more solid because it is based on 2,375 tests taken last year and 2,663 tests taken the year before that.
