You probably already know that the GMAT consists of four sections: Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative, and Verbal. While all of them require some analytical and reasoning skills, only one assumes you will express your thoughts in writing.. According to the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), owner and administrator of the GMAT exam, the Analytical Writing Assessment or AWA is designed to measure your ability to formulate an appropriate and constructive critique of a specific conclusion, based on a coherent line of thought.
There is one sobering thought that constantly pops into the minds of most of the graduate school candidates in the days leading up to their GMAT exam; namely, that what happens in those four somber hours could have a greater impact on their admission success than all of the work they have done before the day of the actual test.
In some of our previous posts, we have discussed how you can study and practice for the GMAT, using GoGMAT online platform and how GoGMAT analytical system can help you further improve your score. In this post, we will discuss how all these three elements — study, practice, analysis— combine into the first ever personalized and adaptive GMAT course.
You have studied, you have practiced, you take the GMAT, and ... it's still not 800. Well, you do not need to score 800 points to be accepted into a business school, but what if the score is below acceptable for the school you have chosen? You don't want to repeat your whole GMAT prep experience from the beginning, and even if you do, it will unlikely increase your score by very much. As a wise man once said, "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity." If you have already prepared, perhaps even taken a GMAT course, but need to further improve your score, you must analyze what is wrong. Is it a certain type of questions that causes you trouble or perhaps you just can't answer GMAT questions fast enough? Identifying what causes the problem will help you eliminate that problem, and this is where the GoGMAT analytical system can help you tremendously.
