The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a computer adaptive test which assesses an individual’s skills for being successful at a graduate management program, such as an MBA. The test assesses the candidate's analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in standard written English. GMAT score ranges from 200 to 800, measuring performance on the quantitative and verbal sections together. Scores are given in increments of 10 (e.g. 540, 550, 560, 570, etc.). From the most recent data released by GMAC, the average GMAT® score of all test takers is about a 540. Performance on the Analytical Writing Assessment and Integrated Reasoning sections do not count toward the total score, those sections are scored separately.
