How to Calculate GMAT Score

How to Calculate GMAT Score?

GMAT Exam is one of the most coveted exams for candidates who wish to take admission in top MBA colleges in India and abroad. As GMAT Exam is a computer-adaptive exam, the difficulty level of the questions will increase if you go on giving correct answers, whereas the difficulty level would keep decreasing on every wrong answer given by you. 

The factors that are considered while calculating the GMAT Score are given below:

An algorithm is set to compute your score on the basis of the question count till which you have reached, the number of right answers, and the difficulty level you have attained while attempting the questions. This exam is divided into three sections viz. Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, and Quantitative and Verbal Analysis. 

The marks allotted to each question depending on its difficulty level. As you don’t know the difficulty level of the question you are answering, there is no way of finding out how many marks a particular question carries. Depending upon these factors, your score can range anywhere from 200 to 800. 

The lowest score of 200 will be given to that candidate who has given all the wrong answers, and the highest score of 800 means that you have answered all the questions correctly. 

The scores of AWA (Analytical Writing Assessment) and IR (Integrated Reasoning) are not taken into consideration while converting your final GMAT Result score from the raw score that you have managed to secure. The scores obtained by you in the verbal and quantitative sections determine your final score of the GMAT Result. 

The quantitative and verbal sections have scores ranging between 0 and 60. However, only in the rarest of situations, the candidates manage to score less than 6 and over 51. The AWA score will range from 0 to 6 on the basis of an interval of ½ point. The IR scores range between 1 and 8 in one-digit intervals. 

Score Charts

The raw scores that you have gained in the verbal and quantitative sections can be converted into final scores of the GMAT Exam with the help of GMAT Score Charts. The GMAT Score Charts are given below for your reference:

The above score charts confirm that a combination of different scores obtained in the verbal and quantitative tests can provide the same score of the GMAT Result. By looking at these charts closely, you will understand that the subscore of the verbal section is higher than the subscores of the quantitative section. For example, the combination of a verbal subscore of 27 and a quantitative subscore of 41 gives the total score of 560, but the percentiles of each of these subscores are 47% and 41% respectively. 

Though the AWA and IR test subscores are not included in the tally, they are definitely included in the final report of the GMAT Result. If you are satisfied with the scores after appearing for the GMAT Exam in the test center, you will get a printout (copy) of your score report. This report will contain the scores of all the sections, but it cannot be used for securing admission as it is an unofficial report. It will only help you to understand whether you have scored enough to seek admission to an MBA college/university of your choice. You can also reappear for the GMAT Exam if you wish to improve your scores in the future. The final GMAT result will be declared three weeks after the test, and you will be notified about it via email. This will be the official report that you can use to secure admission to the college of your choice.
