Folks, you must wonder what all are the changes which have been implemented in the GMAT exam effective 16th April 2018. There are no major changes except the testing time and the number of questions on the GMAT exam. Earlier the GMAT was comprised of 4 sections which were AWA, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative section and verbal section. Integrated reasoning and AWA section each were of 30 mins, quantitative section and verbal section each were of 75 mins. Also, the quantitative section had 37 questions and verbal section had 41 questions. Effective 18 April 2018 now through the testing time and the number of questions remain the same on IR and AWA section on a quantitative section the testing time has been reduced to 62 mins and number of questions to 31. Also at a verbal section, the questions have been reduced to 36 and the time has been reduced to 65 mins. Hence the total number of questions have been reduced by 11 and testing time by 23 mins. Which means that GMAT exam candidates would need lesser stamina to sit for so long due to lesser testing time. Which also means that it will relieve the tiredness due to the longer testing time earlier. Also, it will help reduce the stress during the GMAT exam though not much. The scoring and total score and optional breaks will remain as it is. So nothing changes much about your GMAT exam preparation strategy or content to be studied.
