GMAT - Result and Scores

You will obtain five scores after taking the GMAT 2022 exam: Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, Verbal, and Total. The sum of your Verbal and Quantitative GMAT scores determines your overall GMAT score. The GMAT total score is unaffected by your Analytical Writing Assessment and Integrated Reasoning results. You'll also get a percentile score, which informs you how you fared in comparison to the other 100 people who took the GMAT. If you score in the 90th percentile on the Verbal portion, for example, you are ahead of 90 other applicants out of 100 taking the GMAT 2022.
