The Integrated Reasoning section is scored separately on a scale of 1-8. The IR score does not affect the AWA, Quantitative, Verbal or Total scores.


GMAT Integrated Reasoning Score ScaleIntegrated Reasoning scores range from 1-8, in single-digit intervals. The Integrated Reasoning score offers a new data point for schools to consider applicants to their programs and does not affect the Quantitative, Verbal, Total, and Analytic Writing Assessment scores.

The IR score will be scored separately and is included on the unofficial score reports provided to test takers immediately after the exam.

Official Score Reports include an Integrated Reasoning score percentile, which is the proportion of scores below the given score. As the section is introduced, the Integrated Reasoning score percentile on Additional Score Reports (requested later) and on the GMAT score reporting website accessible to schools may change slightly as more test takers sit for the exam. GMAT score percentiles for the Analytical Writing Assessment, Verbal, Quantitative, and Total scores are all based on three years’ worth of score data.  IR percentile scores will be updated monthly through 2012 and then updated yearly on the same schedule as the other GMAT percentiles.
