Syllabus

GMAT is a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT). The Computer Adaptive Test as the name suggests picks the questions based on the test taker's response to the given question. The first question is always of medium difficulty level and from then on the score graph starts to move upward or downward as per the performance of the candidate. A test-taker of higher calibre will get tougher questions than a test-taker of a lower calibre. As the test progresses, the score graph begin to narrow down to a range and that range will determine the final score.
