The GMAT officially became the GMAT Focus on Feb. 1, 2024


As of 02/01/2024, everyone taking the GMAT will be taking this new version called the "GMAT Focus."


Can I Use Magoosh to Study for the GMAT Focus?

Yes! Our lessons, practice questions, and practice tests have already been updated to reflect the changes that were introduced in late 2023 when the GMAT Focus first became available, so you can use Magoosh to study for the GMAT Focus.


What Does the GMAT Focus Look Like?


Section Number of Questions Time Limit Score Range
Quantitative Reasoning 21 questions 45 minutes 60 - 90
Verbal Reasoning 23 questions 45 minutes 60 - 90
Data Insights 20 questions 45 minutes 60 - 90
Total 64 questions 2 hours and 15 minutes 205 - 805

   Note: At the start of the exam, you can choose the order of your sections.


If You Studied for an Older Version of the Exam


Here are some quick highlights on the main differences:

Content Changes

  • Quantitative Reasoning used to have two question types—Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency—but Focus Quant only has Problem Solving.
  • Verbal Reasoning used to feature Sentence Correction. Focus Verbal does not have that question type.
  • Integrated Reasoning (IR) no longer exists as an independent section with its own scoring scale. Its question types along with the Data Sufficiency question type now form the Data Insights section, which does count towards your overall GMAT Focus score.
  • There used to be an essay (AWA) section, but that no longer exists.

Structure Changes

  • Most sections now ask fewer questions and take less time.
  • The overall score used to be on a 200 - 800 scale, with the Quant and Verbal sections on a 6 - 51 scale and IR on a 1 - 8 scale.
  • There used to be 2 optional 8-minute breaks. There is now only 1 optional 10-minute break.
