Your Total, Verbal, and Quantitative Scores

Total GMAT scores range from 200 to 800; 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.

Your Analytical Writing Assessment Score

The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) score is based on one Analysis of an Argument essay. Essays are scored independently twice and then averaged. Scores for the AWA range from 0 to 6 in half-point intervals. Each essay receives two independent ratings, one of which may be performed by an automated essay-scoring engine, which evaluates more than 50 structural and linguistic features. If the two ratings differ by more than one point, an expert reader provides a third evaluation to determine the final score. Expert readers are trained college and university faculty members who consider the following:

(a) The overall quality of your ideas about the argument presented

(b) Your overall ability to organize, develop, and express those ideas

(c) The relevant supporting reasons and examples you used

(d) Your ability to control the elements of standard written English

Your Integrated Reasoning Score

Integrated Reasoning (IR) scores range from 1 to 8 in single-digit intervals; no partial credit is given. Most Integrated Reasoning questions require more than one response. Because the questions are designed to measure how well you integrate data to solve complex problems, you must answer all responses to a question correctly to receive credit. Readers are trained to be sensitive and fair in evaluating the responses of examinees whose first language is not English.
