Scoring in GMAT
Scoring pattern in GMAT
Total score is based on Verbal and Quantitative scores. Analytical Writing Assessment and Integrated Reasoning scores do not affect the Total score. Total GMAT scores range from 200 to 800. As per the trend two-thirds of test takers score between 400 and 600.
Verbal and Quantitative scores range from 0 to 60; scores below 9 and above 44 for the Verbal section and below 7 and above 50 for the Quantitative section are rare.
Verbal and Quantitative scores are on a fixed scale and can be compared across all GMAT test administrations, but because they measure different constructs, they cannot be compared to each other.
If you do not finish in the allotted time, your scores will be calculated based upon the number of questions answered as long as you worked on each section. Your score will decrease significantly with each unanswered question.
No other exam shares the scores as promptly as GMAT does. You get unofficial as well as official scores of the exam.
After you take the GMAT exam, you will receive five scores: Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, Verbal, and Total. A new score feature now enables you to preview your unofficial GMAT scores before deciding whether to accept or cancel them. The change gives you more control of your score reporting
