Facts: the new GMAT integrated reasoning section

-June 5th 2012: the date the new GMAT Integrated Reasoning section first appeared for all test-takers.
-30 minutes: the length of the new GMAT Integrated Reasoning section.
-12 questions make up the new section.
-Integrated Reasoning GMAT scores are based on a scale of 1-8, are scored separately on results sheets, and di not form part of the overall score (only the Verbal and Quantitative sections make up the overall GMAT score).
-On the new GMAT, Integrated Reasoning has replaced the Analysis of an Issue essay; one of the two essay questions previously required as part of the Analytical Writing Assessment.
-The GMAT remains the same overall length: 3.5 hours (see table below).

Why has Integrated Reasoning been added to the new GMAT?

As global business has evolved in recent years, so too have the MBA programs that teach individuals to excel in the field. That of course means that the measures needed to test the suitability of applicants to MBA programs also needs to change – in the GMAT’s case this means adding the new Integrated Reasoning section.

The Integrated Reasoning question format on the new GMAT

Thirty minutes in length, the new Integrated Reasoning section consists of 12 questions, each of which falls under four different question types:

*Graphics interpretation: questions that test MBA applicants on their ability to interpret graphs and/or graphical information. Graphics interpretation questions will consist of a graph or graphical image with one or more statements, of which candidates need to select the correct multiple-choice option to make each statement correct.
*Two part analysis: here, candidates are presented with one or more statements, and a table with multiple-choice selections. Candidates should select one answer from each column in order to solve a problem with a two-part solution.
*Table analysis: as the name suggests, candidates are required to prove their understanding of information displayed in a table. Questions are presented with an introductory explanation, a table of information which can sometimes be sorted, and a series of opposing statements (yes/no, true/false, etc…).
*Multi-source reasoning: In the multi-source reasoning questions, candidates are given a series of sources accompanied by statements for which they must select the one(s) that are proven correct by one or more of the sources.

Good luck on your exams! Kudos are appreciated if you find this post interesting and you learned something new.
