About the GMAT

On June 5, 2012, the GMAT exam introduced Integrated Reasoning (IR), a section designed to measure your ability to evaluate information presented in multiple formats from multiple sources. The GMAT exam is 3 hours, 30 minutes (four hours with breaks). The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) contains one Analysis of an Argument essay. Immediately after the essay question, the IR section begins. Test takers have optional breaks before and after the Quantitative sections. The GMAT is a computer adjusted test (CAT) for the Verbal and Quantitative sections, but not for the AW or IR sections. Test takers get separate Quantitative and Verbal scores and a Total score. A separate AWA and a separate IR score also is given.
