The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a requirement of most accredited graduate business schools in the United States. The exam measures your verbal and mathematical reasoning skills.
The GMAT is an approximately three hour long Computer Adaptive Test (CAT). It is probably unlike any other test that you have ever taken. Unlike paper based tests, you cannot go back and change your answers. And the difficulty level of each question is based on whether you got the previous question right or wrong.
The GMAT is divided into three sections: the Analytical Writing Assessment, one Verbal section, and one Quantitative section. The Analytical Writing Assessment always comes first, followed by the Quantitative section and then the Verbal section.
Your combined performance on the Verbal and Quantitative sections results in a single scaled score ranging from 200-800 points. Your performance on the Analytical Writing Assessment results in a separate scaled score ranging from 0.0-6.0 points.
