Hi all,

I just recently took the GMAT and scored a 720 (Q48 V41), which is acceptable; however, I only received a 5 on IR (52nd percentile). I'm trying to target the top 10 schools. I received an undergraduate GPA of 3.9 from an Ivy League and an employed at a top 20 consulting firm, and will be applying ~3 years from now.

Will this low score hurt my chances or is it similar to the essay where there is a lower expectation?

Thanks,
Jason

There isn't too much historical data available yet for top bschools to place a heavy emphasis on your IR score. Your score of 5 is considered "good enough" - generally the 5 or 6 range is where you want to be.

The focus is still the 800 score. For top 10-15 bschools, you want to stay above 50% percentile for your IR score as you have done. Just don't slack off and put in a sub-par performance on IR - unless you have a special agreement with your school that specifies you surpass a 650 on your GMAT. In those unique situations, your IR score won't matter.

But for the most part - you got a pretty ideal score. Great score and just good enough IR - that's exactly where you want to be. Congrats!

Team,

Question 1 - Can any one advise how IR score is calculated ? I am not looking for exact answer or algorithm. In want to know in general what is score if we get X questions out of 12 correct ? e.g I got 4 questions correct out of 12 and IR is showing score as 3. Does that mean I will need at least 7 questions correct to have IR score of 5 which is treated as good one ?

Question 2 - Few IR questions contains sub questions i.e. Q2 a,b, c . To get full mark on that question , do we need to answer all correct ?

1. The IR score is calculated from the number of questions correct, and the section is not adaptive. If you get 4-5 (5 is much more reliable) scored questions correct, you will probably get a 5. Keep in mind that there are only 9 scored questions in the IR section, and that the experimental questions will not be identified. So, even if you ensure that you get 5 questions right (out of 12), you might end up with a score lower than 5 (if one or more of the 5 questions you got right were experimental). You'll need to aim for at least 8 correct out of 12 to be on the safe side.

2. Yes. There is no partial credit.
