• Next Generation GMAT - GMAT 2012 - New Integrated Reasoning Section

    Next Generation GMAT®

    Changes are coming to the GMAT exam.

    In June 2012, the GMAT exam will gain a new section designed to measure your ability to evaluate information from multiple sources. Next Generation GMAT will include a new 30-minute Integrated Reasoning section that will ask you to interpret data presented graphically, analyze different types of information, and evaluate outcomes.

    The GMAT Verbal, Quantitative and Total Scores will not change. Test takers will receive a separate score for the essay, as they do now, and for the new Integrated Reasoning section. The overall length of the GMAT exam (three and a half hours) will not change. When the Integrated Reasoning section is added, the Analytical Writing assessment will be streamlined to include only one 30-minute essay prompt instead of two.
