4 minute for instructions? [#permalink] New post 12 Aug 2013, 07:11
Hi all,

So I read on another forum that you have 4 minutes to get through the instructions on the GMAT. My question: Is this amount of item alloted for each section or is this only before the Quant & Verbal sections respectively?

I am trying to determine what would be the best time to put in notes or prepare my scratch pad before the actual timer starts for the section.

Basically is the structure like this:

(4 min for AWA instructions)
AWA Section - 1 Topic (30 Minutes to complete)
(4 min for IR instructions)
IR Section - 12 Questions (30 Minutes to complete)
(4 min for Quant instructions)
Quant Section - 37 Questions (75 Minutes to complete)
(4 min for Verbal instructions)
Verbal Section - 41 Questions (75 Minutes to complete)

Please respond if you've taken the exam and know this for sure. Also, is there a timer that specifies how much time you left to complete the instructions?

Thank you,

~ Im2bz2p345 :)

So good thing I had asked GMAT Customer Service this question as well, rather than rely on someone to respond to this thread.

In case anyone who hasn't taken the GMAT yet is wondering, here is how timing for the complete test is broken down:


(4 min for General GMAT Tutorial)

(1 min instructions for AWA)
AWA Section - 1 Topic (30 Minutes to complete)

(1 min for IR instructions)
IR Section - 12 Questions (30 Minutes to complete)

-- Optional 8 min break --

(1 min for Quant instructions)
Quant Section - 37 Questions (75 Minutes to complete)

-- Optional 8 min break --

(1 min for Verbal instructions)
Verbal Section - 41 Questions (75 Minutes to complete)


This basically means you can use UP TO 4 minutes at the beginning and UP TO 1 minute at the beginning of each section to write information down in your notepad/scratch paper. I haven't seen this broken down so easily anywhere online.

Please kudos me if this helps you!
