Analytical Writing Assessment
The GMAT begins with the Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA). The AWA consists of a writing task - Analysis of an Argument. Test takers are allowed 30 minutes to complete the essay.

Integrated Reasoning

Integrated Reasoning consists of four question types, which require you to analyze and synthesize data in different formats and from multiple sources. The questions comprise of Graphics Interpretation, Two-Part Analysis, Table Analysis and Multi-Source Reasoning. Candidates attempt 12 questions in a period of 30 minutes.

Quantitative Section
Following an optional five-minute break, the Quantitative section of the GMAT begins. This section contains 37 multiple-choice questions of two question types-Data Sufficiency and Problem Solving. Test takers are allowed a maximum of 75 minutes to complete the entire section.

Verbal Section
After a second optional five-minute break, the Verbal Section of the GMAT begins. This section contains 41 multiple-choice questions of three question types-Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning, and Sentence Correction. Test takers are allowed a maximum of 75 minutes to complete the entire section.

The Analytical Writing section is graded separately in a range of 0 – 6, in half point steps. The Integrated Reasoning section is scored in the range of 1 to 8. The multiple choice sections of the GMAT (verbal and quantitative) are graded on a range of 0 – 60 points. A score of 44 or above for the verbal section, as well as a score of 50 or above for the quantitative section are considered ultra high scores and are quite rare. The total score (which is completely independent of the Analytical Writing and Integrated Reasoning sections, and is derived from your performance on the Math and Verbal sections) ranges from 200 to 800. GMAT Total scores fall on a bell curve, with two-thirds of all testers scoring between 400 and 600. The average GMAT score in 2016 was approximately 544. However, students who manage to get an admission the top universities have an average GMAT score of around 720. Perfect scores almost never occur. In addition to “raw” scores, you may find it useful to consider percentile scores, which indicate what percentage of test-takers score below you. For example, a score of 544 (the average) ranks in the 50th percentile.

Our Method of Teaching GMAT

We do not conduct our GMAT course as a "standard" course for all students. We individualize our course for each student. All students starting the course do a full real 3-hour GMAT test. Based on this Diagnostic Test, we develop a study program, which is different for every student. Their weighted scores determine the time to be given to each study module. Thus a student scoring high on the Mathematics section will have to spend little time in attaining a high mathematics score. However, if his Verbal diagnostic score was a low one, his program will allow more time on the Verbal modules. By this method, we optimize each student's performance. The program of study for each student is given on his individual Progress Check Report, which is used throughout his preparation to guide the preparation in an optimal manner.

Our Teachers
Students study under the guidance of several instructors all trained extensively on the best methods of doing GMAT. All tutors are completely honed on the best methods of teaching the various sections, and are experts in their areas of interest.

Hence, you receive not our standard preparation material, but also extra materials to work on your weaknesses.

This is the main reason why our average score improvement is 180 points.

Preparation / Class Schedule
Normal preparation consists of 4 two-hour classes per week, for 3 to 4 months, depending on the individual level of the student. Since the program works on an individual basis, a new student can join at any time.
