If a candidate answers the questions incorrectly, the difficulty level decreases. If a candidate is getting most of the questions correct, then the difficulty level of the next questions increases. This process continues until all the questions in every section is attempted.

    Since the next question is generated based on a candidate’s performance in current question(s), one cannot revisit any previous question(s). It is mandatory to answer every question in order to proceed to the next question.

    GMAT FAQs

    GMAT FAQs

    Ques. While taking GMAT, if I suddenly get an easy question, does that mean that I got the previous question wrong?

    Ans. Don’t panic. You might have encountered one of the experimental questions. Also, the GMAT’s algorithm does not work in a simple, linear format – it is more complex than we think it is. Therefore, it is technically possible for you encounter an easy question even if you are getting questions right. Finally, remember that ‘easy’ is a relative term – what seems easy to you might not be easy to others. Therefore, don’t waste your test time thinking on these and instead focus on the upcoming questions.

    Ques. Are all GMAT questions scored/do all GMAT questions count?

    Ans. No. About 20%-30% are experimental questions that do not impact your score and are designed to help GMAC evaluate questions for future tests.

    Ques. What is the maximum score on the GMAT?

    Ans. The GMAT score range is between 200 and 800. Very few people get 200 or 800, the majority, however falls between 400 and 600. The average score is about 550.

    Ques. How do I send my GMAT scores to the Schools?

    Ans. Before or after the test, you will have a chance to enter up to 5 schools names that will automatically receive your GMAT score about 20-30 days after you take the test. You can also request for additional score reports to be sent, but it will cost $28. Some applicants prefer not to send any reports to any schools unless they are sure they received a good score, so they will actually order additional reports after they receive the score confirmation. 

    Ques. What documents should I carry on the test day?

    Ans. If you are a Non-US applicant - you must carry a VALID PASSPORT with a recent, recognizable photo (mandatory) and Appointment Confirmation Letter / Email sent by Pearson VUE.

    Ques. Is there any penalty for not completing a section in GMAT?

    Ans. Yes. GMAT penalizes you if you run out of time and are not able to complete the section. Therefore, it is also important to focus on time-management aspects on the test. This is something that can be perfected only with practice.

    Ques. What is tested in GMAT?

    Ans. Composing capacity, learning of Basic Math (Arithmetic, Algebra, Word Problems, Geometry) and a tad of transitional Math (Statistics, Probability, Combinations/Permutations), and information of syntax standards, sensible thinking, perusing, and systematic abilities.

    Ques. Are all GMAT questions scored/do all GMAT questions check?

    Ans. No. Around 20%-30% are trial addresses that don't affect your score and are intended to enable GMAC to assess questions for future tests.

    Ques. How does GMAT scoring work? How is the score calculated?

    Ans. There are a few speculations about how the test is scored: some trust the initial 15 questions are basic; others imagine that hard questions must be addressed accurately to get a decent score, and another gathering trusts that all questions must be offered an explanation to get a high score.

    Ques. Can I scratch off or reschedule a GMAT schedule?

    Ans. Truly, and many individuals do - there is a $50 rescheduling expense on the off chance that you reschedule over 7 days out.

    Akansha Expert

    Hi Ankit, There are 3 scenarios for the GMAT:

    1. If you’re definitely going to business school in search of a better career, you need the GMAT to apply.
    2. If there’s a small chance that you may want to attend business school in the future, then it makes sense to take the GMAT as a cheap “insurance policy.”
    3. If disaster strikes and you lose your job, have no solid prospects, and everything else is generally falling apart, taking the GMAT is a sort of “disaster hedge” option that will make the business school application process quicker and easier.
