How does the GMAT work?
The GMAT scores ranges from 200 – 800, the score is a combination of your Verbal and Quant score. This score has a 10-point increment.
The Verbal and Quant sections of your GMAT test are graded independently, and although the scores for each section range from 0 to 60. The Integrated Reasoning section scores range from 1 to 8 in increments of 1-point.
The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) section scores range from 0 to 6 and is not added to the composite score.
The GMAT test includes the following four components:
An analytical writing assessment – This section measures critical thinking and communication skills
A quantitative reasoning section – Assess whether students have strong mathematical abilities and numerical literacy.
A verbal reasoning section – This section evaluates reading comprehension skills, editing abilities and whether someone can make sense of written arguments.
An integrated reasoning section – This section evaluates how well students can analyze data and interpret information displayed in varied formats.
