GMAT Integrated Reasoning

GMAT Integrated Reasoning (IR), as the name suggests it is designed to test candidate’s thinking ability how efficiently and effectively one can integrate data to get the correct answer. This section is non-adaptive and has to answer 12 questions in 30 minutes. The score is measured on a scale from 0-8.

With the new Score Select Option, candidate can attempt the GMAT Quantitative Aptitude Section in any of the following synchronization:

    • Multi-source reasoning – you will be presented multiple pieces of information. You will have to read and understand all of them, and answer Yes/No to the questions posed. Here is an example.

    • Graphics interpretation – here, you will be given a graph or a graphic. Understand what this represents and answer the question that follows. Here is an example.

    • Two-part analysis – you will need to solve for two values that result in a solution to the problem posed. Each value will belong to a different column, and possible answer choices will be represented as a table. Here is an example.

    • Table analysis – Sort the table to organize the data so you can determine whether certain conditions are met. Each question will have statements with opposing answers (e.g., yes/no, true/false, inferable/not inferable); select one answer for each statement.
