How is the test scored?There are five sections in the Official GMAT Score Report:

• Verbal Scaled Score (on a scale from 0 to 60)
• Quantitative Scaled Score (on a scale from 0 to 60)
• V + Q = Your Combined Scaled Score (on a scale from 200 to 800)

• Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) Score (on a scale from 0 to 6)
• Integrated Reasoning Score (on a scale from 1 to 8)

There will be a breakdown illustrating your performance on each section.

• Your Maths score: from 0-60
• Your Verbal score: from 0-60
• Your Analytical Writing Assessment score: from 0-6
• Your Integrated Reasoning score: from 1-8
Your final GMAT score is a combination of the Verbal and Quantitative scaled scores, which is intended to demonstrate your overall performance on the multiple-choice parts of the test. Your Analytical Writing Assessment and Integrated Reasoning scores are calculated separately, and do not affect your Combined Scaled Score from the first two sections.
What is a good GMAT score?A good score is whatever the Business School you have applied to is asking you to achieve. It doesn’t matter what other people score, it’s all about you against the test.
The GMAT test is calibrated to provide an objective test of your ability across analysis of complex English and maths skills with relevance to the type of business case studies undertaken on an MBA course. We therefore see a normal distribution, with fifty percent of test takers scoring between 400 and 600 on the 200 to 800 scale.

Excellent Scores : 710 – 800
Get more than 700 and you are in the elite top ten percent of GMAT test takers. With a score in this range, any business school in the world would consider your application. Harvard might ask for 730-740, nobody in our experience is requesting a score above 750.

Good Scores : 650 – 700
This is where the majority of our students aim for. It is a solid result demonstrating good all round ability, and accepted by most of the top business schools.

Basic Acceptable Scores : 550 – 640
If your aim is not academic excellence, but more about getting to a particular country, then a score in this range will enable you to attend a wide range of quite reasonable business schools or universities.

Low Scores: 450 - 540
If you are accepted with a score in this range, it is likely that the MBA you study for will not be worth very much after you graduate. There are plenty of universities accepting people with these scores, but don’t expect too much for your money.

This table shows the scaled GMAT scores, and a percentile ranking to explain where your score is relative to the general population of GMAT test takers.

What are the alternatives?If the Business School wants you to pass an exam, there are no direct alternatives, although some Business Schools may accept a GRE.
