New ‘Integrated Reasoning’ section in GMAT from June 2012
The Graduate Management Admission Council is launching Next-Gen GMAT,
the tenth version of the GMAT exam, from June 2012. The new GMAT exam pattern will have a new ‘Integrated Reasoning (IR)’ section, which will replace an essay from the ‘Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA)’ section. The new exam pattern will gauge a candidate’s analysis and interpretation skills, which are much in demand by business schools worldwide for the concurrent management programmes they offer.
