I am week in english writing.Please suggest me to prepare for AWA section.How much important is this for a participant to get admission in Management schools.
Hi There! Welcome to GMAT Club.
AWA score has no importance for admission really. The main purposes for AWA are the following:
- Establish your basic writing ability
- Evaluate your argumentative skills
- Get a sample of your writing to compare to your essays should there be any question down the road
Most schools don't really look at the AWA score or read the essays (they will get a copy; you will not). However, they will if there is a discrepancy or if your AWA score is too low.
Think of it as a checkmark - if you can get higher than 4.0, you should be good.
