testing/math question (not a math test)

I'm trying to figure out whether it's worth it for me to re-take a test.

I've scored 99% on an exam of 47 questions. If I re-take the test and score 100%, what will be my average score?

1. You can't score 99% with only 47 questions

A single missed question would drop the score to 98% (rounded up).

The average of 99 and 100 is 99.5 if that's what you're asking.

2. Maybe they got a half-point off on a problem?

Anyway, you're right about the average.

3. Was it 99% or the 99th percentile?

If the latter you will never get more than a 99.
