The scale

In general, the calculation of GMAT scores is quite complicated. The official score of GMAT ranges from 200 to 800 and is converted based on only 2 sections: Verbal and Quantitative. The original scores of these two sections are calculated and generally range from 6 to 51 based on three factors:

  • The total number of questions you answered.
  • Is your answer correct?
  • Difficulty level and other parameters of the question you answered.

Analytical Writing is graded individually and has a scale from 0 to 6. Integrated Reasoning is also scored separately on a scale from 1 to 8. Although it is not used to convert to the official GMAT score, this part of the test with its own meaning, helping schools look at and assess the candidate’s potential for business data analysis.
