# The New GMAT Official Score Report [GMAT Focus Edition]

## What is a GMAT score report?

A GMAT score report is a document that summarizes your performance on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). It includes your total score, as well as your scores on each of the three sections of the test:

1. Verbal Reasoning,
2. Quantitative Reasoning,
3. Integrated Reasoning, and
4. Analytical Writing Assessment.

## What is included in a GMAT score report?

A GMAT score report includes the following information:

● Your scores on each of the three sections of the test: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Integrated Reasoning, and Analytical Writing Assessment

● Your percentile rank for each section of the test

● Your test date and test centre

● Your official GMAT ID number

## How to interpret your GMAT score report?

Business schools want to see that you have strong verbal, quantitative, and analytical skills.

Your percentile rank tells you how you performed compared to other test-takers. A percentile rank of 80 means that you scored better than 80% of the test-takers who took the GMAT in the same testing year. Your score range tells you the possible range of scores you could have received on the test. For example, if your score range is 600-690, you could have scored anywhere from 600 to 690 on the test.

Your official GMAT ID number is a unique number assigned to you when you take the GMAT. You will need this number to send your score report to business schools.

## How to get your GMAT score report?

You can get your GMAT score report online (on the official GMAT website) or by mail. Once you have created an account, you can view your score report. To get your score report by mail, you must request a score report from the GMAT website. You must provide your name, email address, and mailing address.

## How to use your GMAT score report?

You can use your GMAT score report to apply to business schools. When you apply to business schools, you must send your score report to the schools you are interested in. You can also use your GMAT score report to track your progress as you prepare for the GMAT.

## Focus Edition Score Report

The most apparent change in the Focus edition is the change in the scoring scale; from earlier 200-800, the new scale will be from 205-805. This has been done to help differentiate between the two test formats.

The GMAT Focus Edition exam includes new and improved detailed performance insights with your Official Score Report.

In addition to your total and section scores and percentile rankings, you will also receive insights by section, question type, content domain, time management, and how you performed compared to others who applied to the same program.

Performance summary charts provide a view into your performance across the entire exam:

● Performance by Section provides an overview of your total score, section scores, and percentile ranking. Use this chart to get an overview of your score.

● Performance by Program & School shows your total score percentile ranking compared to the percentile rankings of test takers who sent their GMAT scores to the same program within 5 years. Use this chart to see how you stack up against others interested in applying to the same program(s). Note that this chart will only display if you send your Official Score to one or more programs.

Subsection charts detail your performance on specific domains within the Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Data Insights sections. It is important to note that not all subdomains are present within each of the three sections. (Please note that if a specific chart is irrelevant to a particular section, it will not be provided.)

● Performance by Content Domain shows your percentile ranking based on the most recent 5 years of data for each content domain within the individual section.
