Intro to Integrated Reasoning

The GMAT Integrated Reasoning section tests candidates' abilities to process and analyze verbal and quantitative information in a combined format, reflecting real-world business scenarios.
  • Introduced in 2012, Integrated Reasoning is unique to the GMAT, designed to assess skills demanded by business schools and industries.
  • The section consists of 12 multi-task questions to be completed in 30 minutes, emphasizing the importance of time management.
  • It includes four question types: Multi-Source Reasoning, Table Analysis, Graphics Interpretation, and Two-Part Analysis, each requiring a blend of quantitative and verbal skills.
  • Unlike other sections, Integrated Reasoning is not computer adaptive but requires answers in sequence without the option to return to previous questions.
  • The section score ranges from 1 to 8, is reported separately from the overall GMAT score, and is provided immediately after the test.
