GMAT Score Scales:
Analytical Writing Assessment scores are presented in half-point increments on a scale of 0 to 6. Your Analytical Writing Assessment score is reported separately and does not count toward your Total score. Like the Analytical Writing Assessment, the Integrated Reasoning score will not count toward your Total score. It will provide an additional data point for schools to distinguish among applicants to their programs.
The Quantitative and Verbal sections are each scored on scale of zero to 60, in one point increments, with quantitative scores below 7 and above 50 and verbal scores below 9 and above 44 rare. The scoring in each of these computer adaptive sections takes into account the difficulty and statistical qualities of the questions asked, and the number of questions answered correctly.
GMAT Total scores are based on the Quantitative and Verbal scores. Total scores
are reported on a completely different scale, in 10-point increments ranging from 200 to 800. GMAT scores are good for five years.
Score Reporting Policies:
When you finish the exam–but before you can view your scores—a message will appear on your screen asking if you want to report your scores or cancel them. This is the only opportunity that you will have to cancel your scores. You may not keep some scores and cancel others. If you cancel your scores:
1. You will not be able to see what they were.
2. They cannot be reinstated.
3. You will not be eligible for a refund of any fees.
4. The score cancellation will remain a part of your permanent record and will be reported on future score reports.
5. You will have to wait at least 31 days before retesting.
In case you do not cancel your scores:
1. You will be able to view and print an unofficial score report that shows your
Quantitative, Verbal, and Total scores, as well as any schools you designated as score report recipients.
2. You cannot cancel or withdraw your scores at a later date.
An Official Score Report that includes your Analytical Writing Assessment score, and your Integrated Reasoning score, will be made available to you online and to your designated score-report recipients within 20 days after the test. Official Score Reports include all GMAT scores and score cancellations you have posted in the past five years.
Reporting Scores to Schools:
Your basic test fee covers Official Score Reports sent to up to five graduate management programs, which you will select at the test center before you take the exam. If you want to send your scores to a program after you have taken the exam, you may use the Additional Score Reporting service. You must wait until you have received your Official Score Report, and you will be charged extra for each Additional Score Report. You must pay the Additional Score Report fee for each score report requested after you have taken the exam, even if you did not select five programs to receive Official Score Reports on test day.
