GMAT EXAM PATTERN

The GMAT consists of three separately timed sections and it yields five scores:

  1. Analytical writing score scaled from 0 to 6
  2. Integrated Reasoning from 0 to 8
  3. Verbal Ability score ranges from 0 to 60
  4. Quantitative Ability score ranges from 0 to 60
  5. Total GMAT score ranging from 200 to 800

Only about 10% of students get a total score more than 700 out of 800. The median GMAT score, of students who get admission in top schools like
ISB and Wharton, is about 720, and only 5% of the test takers manage to get that score.
