Test Structure and Format
The GMAT exam consists of 3 sections:
- 1. Analytical Writing Assessment- consists of two separate writing tasks—Analysis of an Issue and Analysis of an Argument.
- 2. Quantitative section- contains 37 multiple-choice questions of two question types—Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving.
- 3.Verbal section- consists of 41 multiple choice Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning, and Sentence Correction questions.
The GMAT is administered as a Computer Adaptive Test. Through this platform, students take the test on a computer, which adjusts the test content to the student's performance. As a student answers question correctly, more difficult questions follow. As a student answers questions incorrectly, easier questions follow. Therefore, scoring the GMAT not only accounts for a raw number of correct/incorrect answers, but also the difficulty of the questions administered on each student's individual exam.
The three sections of the GMAT (Verbal, Quantitative, Analytical Writing) are each scored separately. The Verbal and Quantitative sections are given a score between 0-60. The Analytical Writing Assessment is scored by both a human grader and a computer grading system, the "e-rater". These two gradings are averaged together for a score between 0-6.
Additionally, each exam is assigned an overall score between 200-800, as well as a percentile rank, demonstrating how a test-taker performs as compared with the rest of the examinees.
