Hello everyone!

Just wondering, I suppose that there is no auto-correction on the actual gmat? Can you see have many words you have typed?

No there is no auto correction in Gmat text editor.
In fact the interface is exactly as the GMAT prep.

Depends on the words and how many typos. It is OK to have a few but multiple ones will result in a penalty - you want to type in proper English and proofread what you have written.

Start practising on Notepad application and budget 5 minutes for proofreading after you complete your essays, that will help.
