GMAT Scaled Score Table

 
The score in both the verbal and quantitative sections add up to give you a total GMAT score. Ever wondered how these scaled scores get converted to a score out of 800?

The GMAT is a computer-adaptive test. While attempting the quantitative and verbal sections, if you answer correctly, the level of difficulty would go on increasing gradually.

However, each incorrect answer would mean that there’d be a slight drop in the difficulty level of the next question. So, your scaled score would be determined by an algorithm based on the number of questions attempted, the questions answered right and the difficulty level reached.

Here’s a quick overview of the test scores that you’d be able to see after completion of the GMAT test:

  1. Verbal scaled score
  2. Quantitative scaled score
  3. Total score
  4. Integrated reasoning

You’d be able to know your AWA section score and percentile rankings in your official score report and not immediately after the test.

Though all the scores are reported to the business schools, the total GMAT score out of 800 seems to be the one that matters the most.

Coming back to how the total GMAT score is derived from the scaled scores; the quantitative and verbal section scaled scores range from 0 – 60. However, candidates usually receive a score from 6 – 51.

Here’s a table to give you an approximate estimation of how the scaled section scores in the Quantitative and Verbal sections convert into a total GMAT score out of 800.
