The GMAT Enhanced Score Report: New and Improved Features

A new, enhanced version of the GMAT® ESR provides test takers with better ways to leverage their GMAT experience.

Since its launch in January 2016, the GMAT Enhanced Score Report (ESR) has put test takers in control of their performance by giving them an in-depth review of their scores and insight into their test-taking skills.

A new, enhanced version of the GMAT ESR has several new features that will provide test takers with better ways to leverage their GMAT experience to improve understanding of their GMAT exam performance. The enhancements include three new tables that show their performance as they progress through the verbal and quantitative sections, as well as updates to the Help section and more:  

  • Percentage Correct - Knowing the percentage of questions answered, correctly and incorrectly, helps them understand how they earned their score.
  • Level of Difficulty - The ability to see the average difficulty per question helps them understand how well they performed on more difficult questions.
  • Time Management - Understanding how much time they spent on each question aids in determining if they adhered to their time management plan.

 With the addition of these new features, the GMAT® ESR will help prospective graduate management students better understand their performance and focus study efforts for a future sitting of the exam. Preview the GMAT® ESR on
