GMAT 2022 Exam Pattern

Structure of the GMAT Exam lasts 3.5 hours and is a computer adaptive. On the GMAT, a candidate’s score might vary from 200 to 800 points. What does it mean to be “Computer-Adaptive”?

Computer-adaptive components of the GMAT include Quantitative and Verbal Reasoning. This means that as the candidate answers questions, the exam difficulty varies in real-time.

The first question in either the Verbal or Quantitative portions for each applicant will be of medium difficulty. As he/she answers each question, the computer scores it and utilizes it, along with the answers to all subsequent questions, to determine the next set of questions.

As a result, if you answer the first question properly, the system will normally ask you a tougher question. If you answer the first question incorrectly, the next question will be easy. 

Remember: Because some questions are experimental and may occur at random, don’t be alarmed if an easy question appears in the middle of a section.

Candidates can now choose the order in which they want to take the sections on the GMAT.
