The GMAT exam has introduced a new section, “integrated reasoning”, designed to measure a student’s ability to convert data from multiple sources and in different formats into relevant information to solve problems. It will involve synthesizing data presented in graphics, text and numbers, converting data from multiple sources into meaningful information, organizing information to see relationships and solve multiple, interrelated problems and combining and manipulating data from one or more sources to solve complex problems. Thus the section will measure skills identified as important for incoming students and is based on a survey of 740 management faculty members worldwide.

However, the duration of the exam remains unchanged at three hours and 30 minutes, and its sections GMAT verbal, quantitative, analytical writing assessment (AWA) and total scores are the same.

The AWA will consist of one 30-minute essay instead of two followed by the integrated reasoning section containing 12 questions. However, the new section will not count in the student’s total score, the communication said.
