About GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test)

The GMAT Computer Adaptive Test or the GMAT CAT comprises three sections. Each of the three sections is separately timed.

The first section of the GMAT test is an essay writing section and is known as the Analytical Writing Assessment Section (GMAT AWA Section). The next section is the Integrated Reasoning Section. The next two sections in the GMAT test are objective type multiple choice sections, one of which is the Quantitative section and the other is the Verbal section.

The first section in GMAT-CAT is an assessment of analytically writing skills and is to be completed during the first 30 minutes. In this task, the candidate has to analyse how logically persuasive the argument presented in the question is? This section is scored on a scale of 0 to 6.
The second section in the GMAT CAT is the Integrated Reasoning section. This section was introduced in the computer adaptive format of the GMAT test from June 2012. The integrated reasoning section replaced the second essay of the AWA section - AWA issue.

In this section, you are presented with 12 multiple choice questions. Questions appear in four formats.

  1. Graphic Interpretation
  2. Two Part Analysis
  3. Table Analyis
  4. Multi Source Reasoning

Questions in this section expect you to synthesize and process data in multiple formats - pictorial, tabular, and in the form of a paragraph. Questions in the Integrated Reasoning are designed to measure how well you integrate data to solve complex problems.

This section is scored on a scale of 1 to 8 in intervals of 1.

This section (Quantitative) consists of multiple-choice questions delivered in a computer-adaptive format. Questions in this sections are dynamically selected as you take the test. Therefore, your test will be unique, and the multiple-choice questions will adjust to your ability level. A total of 37 questions are served in this section and comprise two types of questions within this section viz., Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency.
The last section in GMAT - CAT is the Verbal section. This one is also a multiple-choice section delivered in a computer-adaptive format. There are three types of questions in this section viz., Reading Comprehension, Sentence Correction and Critical Reasoning.

At the end of the GMAT test, you will be given an unofficial score for the second and third section (i.e. the multiple choice Quantitative and Verbal sections). The official GMAT scores that include your performance in the Analytical Writing Assessment will be sent by mail to you a few weeks after you have taken the GMAT test.

The scores in the quant section and the verbal section of the GMAT test are cumulatively graded and represented on a scale of 200 to 800. Your performance in the GMAT AWA sections is rated on a scale of 0 to 6. Your performance in the IR section of the GMAT is rated on a scale of 1 to 8.

The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) section of the Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) consists of one 30-minute writing tasks.

Analysis of an Argument

The GMAT AWA test is designed to assess your ability to think critically and to communicate your ideas.

The GMAT test expects you to complete the Analysis of an Argument in 30 minutes. You cannot either exceed the time limit for the section or carry forward extra time at the end of the essay and use it for the next sections.

The topics that one encounters for these essays in the GMAT test are of general interest related to business or a variety of other subjects. Your capacity to write analytically is the only skill that is assessed and therefore, you are not required to have prior knowledge of the essay topic presented to you.

The scores that you get in the GMAT AWA section are independent of the scores that you receive for the objective type questions of the GMAT test. While you are graded on a scale of 200 to 800 in the GMAT Test based on your performance in the objective questions asked in section 3 (GMAT Quant Section) and Section 4 (GMAT Verbal Section), you will receive a score that ranges from 1 to 6 for your performance in the AWA section. 6 represents a very high proficiency in the GMAT AWA section.

Most candidates who take the GMAT test do not practice adequately for the GMAT AWA test. Though, it does not add up to the scores that you receive out of 800, a good score in the AWA section of the GMAT will be an added advantage when you apply to the B Schools.

Hence, make sure that your GMAT Preparation does not suffer from lack of practice in the AWA section.

On the GMAT Score Card you will find four scores — Verbal, Quantitative, Total, and Analytically Writing Assessment. The scores under each of these heads is reported on a fixed scale and will appear on the official GMAT score reports. The score report includes not only your current test scores but also that of your previous two most recent scores from tests you have taken in the last five years.

Total GMAT scores range from 200 to 800. According to the official GMAT site, two-thirds of test takers score between 400 and 600.

In addition to providing the overall scores ranging between 200 and 800, the GMAT score report also includes your Verbal and Quantitative scores in a range of 0 to 60. According to the official GMAT site, scores below 9 and above 44 for the Verbal section or below 7 and above 50 for the Quantitative section are rare. Both scores are on a fixed scale.

Against each of these scores - Verbal, Quantitative and Total, the report also mentions a percentile value. For example, if your percentile in the Quantitative section is mentioned as 93 it means that 93% of the test takers who have taken GMAT have a score below yours in the quantitative section.

GMAT System
The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) is a standardized test that helps B Schools evaluate caliber of candidates who apply for higher studies in business and management. Business schools employ the GMAT test as one of the parameters for judging future academic performances of applicants in an MBA or in other graduate management programs.

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) comprises four sections. Each of the four sections is individually timed. The first two sections comprise a written analysis task. The next two sections (Quantitative and Verbal) consist of multiple-choice questions delivered in a computer-adaptive format. The GMAT measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytically writing skills that you have developed in the course of your education and work.

The multiple-choice questions of the GMAT test is drawn from a large pool ranging from a low to moderate to high level of difficulty. Each section of the test starts with a question of moderate difficulty. If you answer that question correctly, the computer will throw a harder question next. If you answer the first question incorrectly, the second one will be easier. This process will continue until you complete the section. At the end of the section, the GMAT-CAT software will have an accurate assessment of your ability in that subject area.

In a computer-adaptive test, only one question is presented at a time. As the GMAT test adapts to your performance in the previous question(s), it does not allow you to skip, return to, or change your responses to previous questions. It is therefore, extremely important to double check before confirming your choice for any question.
