AWA section in most practice CATs ...

Post Tue Mar 11, 2008 11:49 pm
Hi,

Was just wondering whether the AWA sections in practice CATs are scored by the practice test ?
I am assuming that the practice tests from MGMAT and GMATPrep have an AWA section which needs to be completed. Are these actually scored ? Do the practice tests provide you with a score for the AWA section ?

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm using MGMAT tests, and actually skipped the AWA when practising yesterday. My score was not affected at all, I don't think they add it in. It seems to just be practice.

I know that the GMATPrep doesn't score the written portion of the test. Not sure about ManhattanGMAT. The reason GMATprep doesn't is probably because the actual score on the written test is computed by averaging the computer response and a professional response.
