GMAT Scores

Understanding the components and significance of the GMAT score report is crucial for test-takers aiming for business school admissions.
  • The GMAT score report comprises five different scores: AWA, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, Verbal, and an overall GMAT score.
  • Only the Quantitative and Verbal scores influence the overall GMAT score, ranging from 200 to 800.
  • The AWA score ranges from zero to six, and the Integrated Reasoning score ranges from zero to eight, neither contributing to the overall GMAT score.
  • Business schools primarily focus on the overall GMAT score, derived from the Quantitative and Verbal sections, for admissions decisions.
