    • The middle 50% is a range, specifically the range of test scores or GPA between the 25th percentile and the 75th percentile for the given group.  It is the “half in the middle” that’s left if you remove the top 25% and the bottom 25%. For example, at UMass Amherst last year the middle 50% testing range on the SAT for enrolling first-year students was 1210-1370.  This means that of the 5,000 enrolled first-year students, about 2,500 (the half in the middle) had a score that was in the range. From this you also know that about 1,250 of enrolled students scored higher than this range, and about 1,250 scored a 1200 or below.
