The LAS Difference
The scoring system for the GMAT can be a bit challenging to understand, but we’ve broken it down for you. The two main types of scores reported for the GMAT are section scores and total scores. A student’s total score is determined by their performance on two sections: Quantitative and Verbal. This is scored on a scale of 200-800, with the average GMAT score of 556. To understand the total score, students must look at their Quantitative and Verbal section scores, which are scored from 0 to 60. These scores are then reported in 10-point increments and combined after being converted from raw scores to scaled scores. The conversion from raw score to scaled score accounts for the test variances that occur from the computer-adaptive exam. The average score for the Quantitative Section is 39.4 and the average score for the Verbal Section is 26.86.
The Analytical Writing and Integrated Reasoning sections are scored separately and do not contribute to the total GMAT score. The Analytical Writing section is scaled from 0-6 in half-point increments and the average score is 4.44. The Integrated Reasoning Section is scored from 1 to 8 in one-point increments and the average score for the section is 4.23.

Through my 4 months of preparing for this exam no one has been more helpful than you guys whether it had to do with studying tips, technical support or any other questions. I know most of these things are just a matter of few clicks but the reality is that most organizations out there don’t spend the extra care.
