The GMAT exam pattern consists of mainly four sections which test the candidates abilities. There are four main areas which are tested viz. – Analytical Writing, Reasoning, Verbal and Quantitative skills spanning approximately at 3 hours and 30 minutes. GMAT scored is calculated at ten point increment for every correct answer in the Verbal and Quantitative sections whereas when it comes to the IR and AWA there’s an 8 and 6 point basis respectively.
In a recent update the GMAC announced that they are launching a feature known as the Select Section Order. This feature allows candidates the flexibility to select the order of the sections in which they can write their exam.
