Integrated Reasoning Scoring
The recently added Integrated Reasoning section gives you another way to distinguish yourself from other business school applicants.
Integrated Reasoning scores range from 1-8 (as depicted below), in single-digit intervals, and will not alter the existing Quantitative, Verbal, Total, and Analytic Writing Assessment scores.
Like the Analytical Writing Assessment, the Integrated Reasoning section is scored separately and is not on the unofficial score report you receive immediately after the exam. Both IR and AWA scores are included in the Official Score Report delivered within 20 days.
Your Official Score Report includes your Integrated Reasoning score percentile. The percentile, or the proportion of scores below your score, tells you how your score compares with others. GMAT score percentiles are typically based on three years’ worth of score data. Your scaled Integrated Reasoning score will not change. But as the section is introduced, your IR score percentile—on your electronic score report, on any additional score reports you order, on mba.com, and on the GMAT score reporting website accessible to schools—may change as more test takers sit for the exam.
The table below reflects the frequency with which the percentiles associated with your IR score may change.
