Hi Guys,

I just want to know that what will happen if a person totally skips the IR and AWA sections in the GMAT exam?
Does it impact the overall score?...as I have heard that only quant and verbal helps in grading from 200-800

Please let me know, would be of great help.

Thanks

Hi T0508

It is true that your overall score of 800 is determined only by quant and verbal.

But why would you want to skip IR and AWA?

Hi Salsanousi,
Thanks for the reply, actually I am preparing for a different program that accepts only the GMAT score and that program is not MBA as I have already completed my masters.
Hence was wondering if I should completely focus on verbal and quant and skip IR & AWA.

Hi T0508 I would advise you to ask the program if skipping AWA and IR will lower your chances of acceptance

I don't think it's a good idea to underperform on IR and AWA. Also, you can't "skip" those sections (you have to put some response down or wait for time to run out), as your main GMAT score won't be valid without all the components of your GMAT.

Hi
You should attempt the IR and AWA sections of the Gmat, or else your score can be marked as invalid.
With some basic preparation you can attempt those sections. But find out from your target program on acceptance of a low score in IR and AWA.
Hope it helps.

Hi T0508,

I agree with what already has been said. Furthermore, definitely reach out to your desired program to confirm whether you are able to skip the AWA and IR sections.

Feel free to reach out here with further questions.
