Fresh from GMAC - New GMAT Feature: Select Section Order



In a continuing effort to enhance the GMAT exam experience for test takers, GMAC is launching Select Section Order, a new feature that gives candidates the flexibility to customize their GMAT experience.

Beginning July 11, test takers worldwide will be able to choose the order in which they complete the four sections of the GMAT exam. Three options will be available at the test center:
  • Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, Verbal (original order)
  • Verbal, Quantitative, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment
  • Quantitative, Verbal, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment

Additionally, the test taker profile update screens will be removed from the testing center and can be updated anytime on mba.com.

GMAC will be actively reaching out to candidates via email and digital media between now and July 11 to ensure they are prepared for and can take advantage of the new features. To learn more about Select Section Order and how it may impact your students, please visit our Select Section Order FAQ page.

JUNE 16, 2017 UPDATE:
Veritas Prep has introduced the new select section order option into their CAT's - https://www.veritasprep.com/gmat/free-g ... tice-test/
Veritas Prep tests cost $49 at the moment and are included free of charge within GMAT Club's Premium Membership that costs $49. Please note that they do take 2-3 business days for Veritas Prep to activate when purchasing GMAT Club Premium Membership.

MGMAT has introduced the new select section order option into their CAT's - https://www.manhattanprep.com/gmat/free ... tice-test/
MGMAT is also running a special promotion and a great deal! You can get all 6 tests for only $10 - use promo code PERFECT10

Important FAQ Points - You can Reschedule for free by July 11th


Q: I already have a GMAT exam scheduled. Should I reschedule it to take advantage of this new feature?
A: The decision to reschedule is up to you. For those that have already done significant preparation for the GMAT and are already prepared to take the exam, you may feel comfortable proceeding with your exam as scheduled, as the original section order will be available.

If you would like to reschedule your GMAT exam to take advantage of the new Select Section Order feature, you can call GMAC Customer Service to reschedule your exam. Both your reschedule fee and phone fee ($10) will be waived if your request is received within a 7-day grace period of the announcement (request via phone must be received on or prior to June 22, 2017). Remember, you have to call in to customer service by June 22 to have the fee waived.

After the grace period, you may reschedule your GMAT exam online, at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment, for the standard reschedule fee.


Q: Are there study and preparation materials available that simulate the GMAT exam in different orders?
A: The Select Section Order feature is not currently available in the full-length practice exams in the mba.com store, which includes GMAT Prep and Exam Packs 1 and 2. These products will be updated with the Select Section Order feature by July 31, 2017.

You can still download or purchase any full-length exam product via mba.com/store between now and the release of the updated versions. When the software is updated to include the Select Section Order feature, you will be eligible for a complimentary upgrade of GMAT Prep or Exam Pack.

In the meantime, you can use the Test Bank Tool in the Online Official Guide to build your own question sets by question type in your preferred order.

We recommend that if you are not comfortable with a different section order, you can take the GMAT exam in the original section order.


Q: What was involved in the 2016 pilot testing for Select Section Order and what were the results?
A: The purpose of the 2016 pilot test for Select Section Order was two-fold:

1. Determine which section orders were the most popular amongst candidates
2. Verify that taking the exam in different section orders did not impact the integrity of the GMAT score

The pilot successfully determined the two most popular section orders that will be implemented with the new feature (in addition to the original section order). The pilot also confirmed that statistically, the integrity of the GMAT scores was not impacted by candidates taking the exam with different section orders.

Official Press Release is here: http://newscenter.gmac.com/press-releas ... 667560_001


Questions from GMAT Club Members & Analysis


Q: Does this mean GMAT scores will get inflated?
A: It would seem that ability to choose order of sections, esp being able to put IR and AWA at the very end would give one an edge in getting a better V or Q scores. However, the GMAC's FAQ section specifically mentioned that the overall scores have not been affected and the pilot demonstrated that the change of sequences was more of a convenience than an advantage. I don't know how they would measure this or arrived to this conclusion specifically. I know that they did offer it to re-takers, so they had some expectation as to how much retakers improve on average. The only way this would make sense is if some people scored higher and some lower as I still think there is some advantage in taking the V or Q before AWA or IR.

My take is that it will likely improve some scores for some folks, esp those who were lacking a few points to go from 650 to 660 for example but it will likely have a counter-balance effect and will force some people to score less due to over-confidence or taking their hardest section cold. Thus the overall statistics will remain unchanged but each individual test taker result will vary. Just a prediction over here.

Q: Can you reschedule your test Online for free?
A: No, you have to call the customer service by June 22nd to have the fee waived.

Is this a good thing or bad thing? I always felt that the IR section drained me...I have performed better on mock CATS whenever I have taken the test without the IR and essay section. By tackling the main sections first, I feel I will be in a better position. Quant isn't a strength for me anyway, so tackling it first would relieve me. bb would request your thoughts on this new feature.
Also does this also mean that GMAC will make the test content even more difficult, since it is giving us this flexibility? :shock:

I don't think test content will become more difficult since there might be some who will still go with existing section order . Also , in my opinion , it is really difficult to concentrate on a dense RC passage at the end of the test .
On the other hand , some people might want a warm-up before they start with sections that count - Quant and Verbal .
Personally , i will prefer the below order though -
Quantitative, Verbal, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment .

same preference for me. But gmac should've upgraded the gmatprep software so that students could take practice cats to know which order suits them best.

This will likely cause some score inflation - not big but some. My guess however, is that GMAC has determined the opposite - the increase/changes to the scores were minimal and not big enough to warrant score inconsistency. Interesting additional tidbit from FAQ:

Will the section order choice be displayed on score reports?
A: No, the section order selected will not be shown on any unofficial or official score report. Schools will not know which section order a candidate selected.

Interesting changes... I recently started studying for my GMAT again and plan to take it later this summer.

I'm wondering if any prep companies will introduce timely changes to their practice CATs to allow for this new flexibility for candidates preparing for GMAT right now. :problem:

Good to know that the official practice tests on mba. com will be updated soon, but July 31st for the update seems too far. Hope something comes up sooner.

A: The decision to reschedule is up to you. For those that have already done significant preparation for the GMAT and are already prepared to take the exam, you may feel comfortable proceeding with your exam as scheduled, as the original section order will be available.

If you would like to reschedule your GMAT exam to take advantage of the new Select Section Order feature, you can call GMAC Customer Service to reschedule your exam. Both your reschedule fee and phone fee ($10) will be waived if your request is received within a 7-day grace period of the announcement (request via phone must be received on or prior to June 22, 2017). Remember, you have to call in to customer service by June 22 to have the fee waived.

After the grace period, you may reschedule your GMAT exam online, at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment, for the standard reschedule fee.

Try applying your critical reading skills and re-read carefully the announcement. Look at the scope and context. It talks about the 7-day grace period. Nowhere does it say you will be limited around the test dates. However, I would infer that you can reschedule a test that is taking place between tomorrow and July 11th for free as long as you call in the next 7 days. If both of those conditions are met, there is no fee. Otherwise, there will be a fee.

As per the announcement made by GMAC, any exam on or after 11th July will have the selection option. So, you are good.

Interesting! Thanks bb for this information. I've received also the official email from GMAC.

About reschedule, I can conclude that the fee waiver only available for those who reschedule via phone.
The announcement explicitly stated that we can reschedule online only after the grace period. Please correct my if I'm wrong.

I really love this major innovation. Since Quant and Verbal are the most demanding sections, we should use the best of our brain in these two sections.
Furthermore, conducting AWA in the last seems good - quite similar with TOEFL test, which put writing test on the last section.

Thanks!

I was probably a little bit too excited when my inbox started filling with these announcements this morning! For some people, it really won't make much of a difference, but if you struggle with your stamina on verbal, this is HUGE.

For me personally, the very hardest thing on the GMAT is maintaining my precision on RC and CR when I'm in my 4th hour of test-taking -- and I think that's true for a lot of GMAT Club members. If you can do the verbal when you're fresh at the beginning of the exam, that should make a big difference.

Sure, maybe it only means that you'll get an extra two or three verbal questions right, and that might only add an extra 10-20 points on your composite GMAT score. But sometimes that extra 20 points is a really big deal in the current MBA admissions climate. So this might not matter for some test-takers, but for anybody who needs to squeeze every possible point out of verbal -- this is a really, really big deal. I love it.

It is a Jan 2016 article when the pilot was rolled out.
There is also a webinar tomorrow held by GMAC for all test prep companies (GMAT Club has been invited as well) and I anticipate much of the time will be spent explaining this decision. If something new is shared, I will update the post once the webinar is over around 10 AM PST tomorrow.

Yes sir I did check the date, but posted the article here because I felt the points made were interesting and relevant. Looking forward to hearing insights from your webinar tomorrow.

It is a Jan 2016 article when the pilot was rolled out.
There is also a webinar tomorrow held by GMAC for all test prep companies (GMAT Club has been invited as well) and I anticipate much of the time will be spent explaining this decision. If something new is shared, I will update the post once the webinar is over around 10 AM PST tomorrow.

Yes sir I did check the date, but posted the article here because I felt the points made were interesting and relevant. Looking forward to hearing insights from your webinar tomorrow.



Yes, and Skywalker18 has pointed it out to you that the official results determined that there was no meaningful impact on the test score results: https://gmatclub.com/forum/big-gmat-cha ... l#p1870290
