Quantitative Section

Two types of multiple-choice questions are intermingled throughout the section: Problem Solving and Data Sufficiency.

The Quantitative section of the GMAT exam, consisting of 31 questions to be completed in 62 minutes, measures the test taker's ability to:

  • Reason quantitatively, solve quantitative problems, and interpret graphic data.
  • Understand problems involving arithmetic, elementary algebra, and common geometry concepts.
  • Evaluate the amount of information needed to solve quantitative problems.

The Verbal and Quantitative scores range from 6 to 51. Scores below 6 and above 51 are rare.

The Verbal and Quantitative scores measure different constructs and are not comparable to each other.
