GMAT Quant

GMAT Quant or Quantitative Aptitude Section is designed to test candidate’s knowledge and proficiency about quick problem solving with a mathematical approach. This section comprises of mainly two subsections Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving. To attempt 37 questions, 75 minutes is allocated to the test aspirants. In this section, the score is ranged from 0 to 60, while the total score is marked on a scale from 200-800. The total GMAT score obtained is the average score of total quant and verbal score. In this section, the questions revolve around mathematical topics like arithmetic, algebra, and geometry. Since this is a computer adaptive test which follows a certain algorithm, henceforth, with every right answer the difficulty level of the question increases.

1. Extract Sufficient Data To Solve Data Sufficiency

This section evaluates your ability to extract data following a logical method. You’d be given two statements, labeled with Statement 1 and Statement 2. With every question, five answer options are offered to best suit the answer. The test taker has to evaluate whether the provided is sufficient for answering the problem. To get the correct answer, students are needed to imply their mathematical calculation. Below is the illustration of the five answer options:

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.

Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.

BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.

EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.

Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed.

2. Problem Solving

This section of the test deals with quantitative skills. The candidates are demanded to solve the problem based on the mathematical concepts with quick calculative skills. Here, the test takers have to struggle, to get the correct answer. In this section, the usage of the calculator is prohibited. This section comprises the questions from the following areas; to ace those, practice the mentioned topics.
