Hi All ,

I am bit confused with the GMAT format .

Q -> 31 qst --> 62 min
V -> 36 qst --> 65 min

but in the OG 2018 it shows something else like Q 37 qstn and V 41 Q

Also can anyone please suggest whether i will be able to choose the sequence in which i want to answer the different sections ( Q, V , IR , AWA )

Hi tito411990,

The GMAT2018 Official Guide was released in the summer of 2017 - and back then, the GMAT Quant section and Verbal section were 37 questions and 41 questions, respectively.

In April of this year, GMAC changed the format of the GMAT - now the Quant and Verbal sections are 31 questions and 36 questions, respectively.

You can still choose among 3 section orders on Test Day:
Q/V/IR/Essay
V/Q/IR/Essay
Essay/IR/Q/V

1) How long have you been studying for the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to take the Test?
3) What is your goal score?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Rich ,

I started studying last week
My goal score is 720+

I am comfortable in quants and CR and RC but SC keeps on being my Achilles Heel .

I have browsed through the Manhattan SC , but still having difficulty to ascertain / eliminate the correct / wrong option

Thanks

Hey tito411990,
Welcome to the journey of GMAT. This brief will give you all the relevant details about the GMAT examination.

The GMAT test is a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) which tests one’s ability across 4 sections:
• Quantitative
o 31 questions, 62 minutes
o Primarily tests on Problem Solving (PS) and Data Sufficiency (DS)
• Verbal
o 36 questions, 65 minutes
o Primarily tests on Reading Comprehension (RC), Sentence Correction (SC), and Critical Reasoning (CR)
• Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA)
o Analytical assessment of 1 topic
o Duration 30 minutes
• Integrated Reasoning (IR)
o 12 questions, 30 minutes
o Primarily tests on Table Analysis, Graphs, Two-part Analysis, and Multi-Source Reasoning

Out of the 4 mentioned sections, quantitative and verbal sections are adaptive in nature – that means your response in any question will determine the difficulty level of the next question. Also, once you marked an answer and moved to the next question, you cannot move back to the previous ones to modify your answer.

At present, one can choose the order of the section(Q-V-IR-AWA OR V-Q-IR-AWA OR AWA-IR-Q-V) at which he wants to attempt the question. The choice can be made before the start of the examination.

Added with this, read a brief analysis and the most common questions about the New GMAT Format.

Now as a 3-months' planning, you should start with the GMAT Planner Tool - to get an idea of what you actually need to have to achieve your target score. you can follow a module-wise learn and refine strategy afterwards as it is explained:
• Learn the concepts of every section in a time-limit.
o The most important step, which will help you to build the foundation. You can try the <Free Trial of Online Self-Paced Courses> to have an idea about the way things can be done.
• Once the concept learning is done, check the applicability of those concepts in the quizzes, mocks or advanced testing platforms like GMAT Prep.
• Start taking full length mocks once you are done with all the modules of quant and verbal.
o Try the GMAT Prep Mocks to have an idea about the applications of your learning.
If you stick to the above plan, with proper execution, you can definitely achieve and surpass your target score in the GMAT.

Hi tito411990,

Since you're in the early phase of your studies, it would be a good idea to take a FULL-LENGTH practice CAT Test; you can take 2 for free at www.mba.com (and they come with some additional practice materials). That score will give us a good sense of your natural strengths and weaknesses and will help provide a basis for comparison as you continue to study. A FULL CAT takes about 3.5 hours to complete, so make sure that you've set aside enough time to take it in one sitting. Once you have those scores, you should report back here and we can come up with a study plan.

1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
2) When are you planning to apply to Business School?
3) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
