GMAT test is a computer adaptive test that follows a certain algorithm. This algorithm is responsible for determining the final GMAT score. Let’s reiterate, a final GMAT score is an average score of Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Aptitude which is measured on a scale of the total score of 200-800 each subject. In other words, GMAT score is the aggregation of these four parameters:
- The number of questions you attempted in each section within the specified time i.e. 75 minutes.
- The number of questions you answered correctly.
- The degree of difficulty of questions you attempted.
- There is no penalty for the wrong answer, but the penalty is imposed on those aspirants who failed to attempt a test section.
A GMAT score can be calculated as follows
|Raw Score||Scaled Score||Percentile|
How to Analyze Verbal and Quant score from the GMAT score Grid?
To do that, all you need is to grab a GMAT score grid. For example according to the following chart, if your score in Verbal is 37 and in Quant is 44 then your overall GMAT score is 670. Estimating the GMAT score from the grid is highly predictable. Rarely the difference between the estimated score and real score lies between 10-15 marks.
When can you get your GMAT Score Card?
As soon as you finish the GMAT exam, your score will pop up on the computer screen. This is the average score Quant and Verbal section out of 800. GMAC will send your score to the selected B-schools.
