New GMAT® Feature: Select Section Order

In a continuing effort to enhance the GMAT® exam experience for test takers, GMAC is launching Select Section Order, a new feature that gives candidates the flexibility to customize their GMAT experience.

Jun 20, 2017


Beginning July 11, GMAT test takers worldwide will be able to choose the order in which they complete the four sections of the GMAT exam. Three options will be available at the test center:

  • Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, Verbal (original order)
  • Verbal, Quantitative, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment
  • Quantitative, Verbal, Integrated Reasoning, Analytical Writing Assessment

In addition, the test taker profile update screens will be removed from the testing centers and can be updated by test takers anytime on

GMAC will be actively reaching out to candidates via email and digital media between now and July 11 in to ensure they are prepared for and can take advantage   of the new features.
