What is the GMAT?
The GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) is a 3-1/2 hour standardized multiple choice exam designed to be selection criteria for admission officers in MBA (Masters in Business Administration) programs. It is designed to provide a score, which will allow colleges to compare applicants with different educational backgrounds.
The test may be referred to as the "GMAT CAT"; the acronym CAT stands for "Computer Adaptive Test." The GMAT is administered only by computer now.

How Does CAT work?
During each of the two multiple-choice sections (Quantitative and Verbal) of the GMAT, the computerized testing system will select your questions from a large pool based on your responses to earlier questions of the same type. For each question type, the first question posed will be average in difficulty level. If you respond correctly to a question, the next question of that type will be more difficult; conversely, if you respond incorrectly, the next question of that type will be easier.
The earlier questions of a GMAT CAT section are crucial in determining your baseline score, so invest the necessary time to try and answer these questions correctly.

How important are GMAT scores in the B-school admissions process?
Each graduate business school develops and implements its own policy concerning the use of GMAT scores in making admissions decisions. They do, however, usually set their initial ranking based on the GMAT scores.
After the initial review, the evaluation of the subjective factors (work and other relevant experience, recommendation letters, application essays, reports of personal interviewers) usually plays a much larger role in admission decisions.

How does multiple choice question scoring work?
Your Quantitative and Verbal scores are each based on three factors:
1. the number of questions to which you responded correctly;
2. the difficulty level of the questions to which you responded correctly;
3. the range of cognitive abilities measured among the questions to which you responded correctly.
The computerized testing system employs a complex algorithm to account for each of these three factors. Your Total score is based on your Quantitative and Verbal scores, which are combined (given equal weight) and converted to a different scale.

How is the AWA scored?
You'll receive a single Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) score for your two GMAT essays. Process:
1. Each of your essays is graded, on a scale of 0-6, by a human reader and by a computerized writing evaluator called E-Rater.
2. If E-Rater’s grade for an essay differs from the human reader’s by more than one point, then a second human reader reads and grades the essay.
3. Your final grade for each essay is the average of two grades - one awarded by a human reader and the other by E-Rater (or by the second human reader).
4. Your AWA score is the average of two final grades - one for each of your two GMAT essays - rounded up to the nearest half-point.

What is the GMAT Percentile?
You'll also receive a percentile rank, from 0% to 99%, for each of your four GMAT scores. A percentile rank indicates how you performed relative to the entire GMAT test-taking population during the most recent three-year period. For example, a percentile rank of 70% means that you scored higher than 70% (and lower than 30%) of all other GMAT test-takers during the most recent three years.
99+% = 800, 99% = 720, 75% = 570, 50% = 500
