GMAT | Entrance Preparation | - AIP Education

The GMAT helps the admissions officers of colleges and universities with a common measure to gauge the preparedness of students for graduate level academic work. Along with the previous academic scores, work experience and other relevant documents business schools also review the GMAT scores of the applicants.

If a student has a high score on the GMAT then it opens up more college choices for them. The GMAT exam fundamentally measures a student’s command of basic arithmetic, algebra, geometry, multi-source data analysis and grammar. It also measures a student’s ability to analyze and evaluate written material, think critically, and solve problems.

The content of the GMAT is broken down into four scored test sections, two of which are scored separately, and two of which are scored separately but are also combined to generate your composite score: Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal.

Students taking the GMAT test have the freedom to choose the order in which they take the sections which can be done at the test center. There are three orders you will be able to choose from: Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA), Integrated Reasoning (IR), Quantitative, Verbal; Verbal, Quantitative, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment; and Quantitative, Verbal, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment.

The GMAT exam is Computer Adaptive. What does that mean?

The Quantitative and Verbal Reasoning sections of the GMAT are computer-adaptive, meaning the difficulty of the test tailors itself in real-time to your ability level. This feature allows the exam to assess your potential with a higher degree of precision and deliver scores that business schools trust.

Here’s how it works: The first question you receive in either the Verbal or Quantitative sections will be of medium difficulty. As you answer each question, the computer scores your answer and uses it as well as your responses to any preceding question to select the next question. If you answer the first question correctly, the computer will usually give you a harder question. If you answer the first question incorrectly, your next question will be easier. This process continues until you complete the section, using responses to all previously answered questions, at which point the computer will have and accurate assessment of your ability in that subject.

You will not be able to skip, return to, or change your answers to questions. This is because the computer uses your response to each question to select the next one.
