## Do you have a score from the GMAT Exam (10th Edition)?

If you have a valid score from the previous version of the GMAT, the GMAT Exam (10th Edition), which was available between 2012 and 2024, you can use the percentile tables below to interpret your score.

Format: The GMAT Exam (10th Edition) Total Score is composed of the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the exam.

What it measures: The GMAT Exam (10th Edition) measures the test taker's ability to assess higher-order reasoning skills (verbal, quantitative, analytical writing and integrated reasoning) and has proven validity in predicting success in the first year of graduate management education.

How it is scored: Your Total Score is based on your calculated performance before scores are given for the Quantitative Reasoning and Verbal Reasoning sections. The raw calculation is then converted to a number in the Total Score range.

Score range: Total Scores range from 200 to 800.

## Interpreting Your Integrated Reasoning Score

Format: Consists of 12 questions covering four question types to be completed in 30 minutes: Multi-Source Reasoning, Graphics Interpretation, Two-Part Analysis, and Table Analysis.

What it measures: Scores range from 1-8 in single-digit intervals.

How it is scored: Your Integrated Reasoning score is based on the number of questions answered correctly. Some questions may have multiple parts; you must answer all parts of a question correctly to receive credit for that question.

Score range: The Integrated Reasoning score is provided as an independent score and is not included in the Total GMAT Exam (10th Edition) score.

What you should know: Most Integrated Reasoning questions require more than one response. Because the questions are designed to measure how well you integrate data to solve complex problems, you must answer all responses to a question correctly to receive credit, no partial credit is given.

## Interpreting Your Verbal Reasoning Score

Format: 36 questions comprised of reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and sentence correction to be completed in 65 minutes.

What it measures: The test taker's ability to read and comprehend written materials, reason and evaluate arguments, and correct written material to conform to standard written English.

What you should know: Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores are on a fixed scale and can be compared across all GMAT test administrations, but because they measure different constructs, they cannot be compared to each other.

## Interpreting Your Analytical Writing Assessment Score

Format: One 30-minute written essay on the analysis of an argument.

What it measures: Your ability to formulate an appropriate and constructive critique of a specific conclusion based on a specific line of thinking. A specific knowledge of the essay topic is not necessary as only the capacity to write analytically is assessed.

How it is scored: Your Analytical Writing Assessment essay is scored  using professional essay raters as well as a machine algorithm.

Score range: Average scores range from 0 to 6 in half point intervals. AWA scores are computed separately from the scores for the multiple-choice sections of the exam and have no effect on the Integrated Reasoning, Verbal, Quantitative, or Total GMAT Exam (10th Edition) scores.

What you should know: The AWA score is an average of two independent ratings. AWA essays are scored by a combination of trained and approved human raters and a machine algorithm. If there is a disparity between the algorithm score and the human score, the score will be reviewed by an additional human rater and may be adjusted.
