The total GMAT score ranges from 200 to 800 (200 being the lowest and 800 being the highest). The scores are assigned in increments of 10 and with an equivalent percentile value to the sectional and total score. The scores from AWA and IR are not counted in the total score.
To give you a better understanding of the GMAT score: 75% of examinees score between 420 and 680, and the mean score for all examinees from 2014-2017 was 550.
What is the GMAT Testing?
As a future executive who will be a decision-maker for a part or the whole of an organization, the candidate is expected to be able to consume and digest large amounts of information so as to analyze and convincingly present the findings to peers and managers. This requires proficiency in areas such as the English language, quantitative reasoning, data interpretation, argumentation, and writing skills.
The GMAT is testing future leaders on how they can manage their time and emotions to obtain, in a time-bound exercise, appropriate solutions to problems.
