You’ll receive six GMAT scores:
- Quantitative scaled sub score, ranging from 0 to 60 (effectively 51 is the max score)
- Verbal scaled sub score, ranging from 0 to 60 (effectively 51 is the max score)
- Overall scaled score, ranging from 200 to 800. This is an overall score that is a combination of your 0 to 60 Math and Verbal scores (hence, the name 800score: an 800 is a perfect score). The 200 to 800 cumulative score is what business schools primarily use.
- Analytical Writing Assessment score, ranging from 0 to 6. This is a separate score that is less important than the 200 to 800 cumulative score.
- Integrated Reasoning score from 0 to 8
The test is graded on a preset curve so that your scaled score will correspond to a certain percentile. An overall score of 630, for example, corresponds approximately to the 90th percentile, meaning that 90 percent of test takers scored at or below this level.
