In the Earlier post, I explained to you WHAT IS GMAT EXAM AND WHY GMAT??, so guys today we will discuss what is the format of GMAT Exam.

First of all, Let me tell you it’s an adaptive test which means if you answer the first question of like quant rightly then next question of quant will be difficult than the first one you answered and further if you attempt the second question even as a right than the third Question will be more difficult. This nature of questions and the pattern is called as the adaptive test. Means nature of the question depends upon your ability to answer the previous questions(Whether right or wrong), But only verbal and quant section of this exam is adaptive. Let me clear you GMAT in general consists of only quant and verbal section.The score which you see  200-800 is the GMAT  GENERAL SCORE. Integrated Reasoning and AWA are the different sections SCORES of which are also being used by the B-SCHOOLS to evaluate the candidate for their program.

The total score is a scaled combination of the verbal and quantitative scaled scores, and thus reflects a student’s overall performance on the multiple-choice sections of the test. The AWA and the Integrated Reasoning sections are scored independently; scores for these sections do not affect the 200-800 scaled score.

Be clear with the total score between 200-800  obtained by you is the combination of the quants and verbal section and it has nothing to do with the integrated Reasoning (IR) and analytical writing analysis(AWA). IR and AWA are independent and evaluated separately. The score either in IR section or in AWA section has nothing to do with 200-800 scaled scores.
