Can someone help me gain clarity on these :

1. Is IR section adaptive too?

2. Each of the 12 question has many sub questions , so totally its about 25-32 questions. I find that I get atleast one of the sub questions right. So, if I if I look at the total number of sub questions I have answered correctly, it is almost 55-70%, however, even one mistake in these questions leads to the whole question being counted as 'wrong' and my final score barely manages a 3. Have I got this right? If it is true, doesn't it weigh against the students?

Q: Is the Integrated Reasoning section computer adaptive?
A: No, but it is timed, and pacing is important. You may not skip questions or go back and change your answers once you’ve submitted them.

Q: Some of the Integrated Reasoning questions require multiple responses. Is there partial credit if I get some but not all of the parts correct?
A: You must get all parts of the question correct to receive credit. The questions are designed to measure your Integrated Reasoning skills, and the responses to a single question are interrelated so that answering them all correctly demonstrates your ability to integrate data to solve complex problems. Additionally, the IR score scale has been designed to reward a candidate’s ability to synthesize multiple streams of information and evaluate possible outcomes as opposed to randomly guessing an answer.

Hope it helps.

Hi all,
Yesterday I started preparing for the GMAT. The parts - Critical Reasoning and Integratedfit reasoning were the most difficult for me . I am using the software GMATprep and what I observed was that I can not fit in the time, bacause the text are to long for me for that short time. Could you give me any advises how to prepare myself better for these sections?

Hi vargirova,
Do'nt get panic.First if you are not good in IR of attempting 12Q in 30 min than its better for you to focus on certain question like MSR , Graphical interpretationn, table question and one question oftwo part anylsis. If you are able to complete 8 question correctly than there might be a chance of getting 6 in IR.I hope this is good enough to start and with time try to complete as much question as
you can.

Hi Experts,

Do we have a huge penalty even in IR section if we miss to mark couple of questions, or are they considered wrong?

That would be considered wrong. You would only get credit for a question if you get all sub-parts of that question correct.
