#### GMAT - number of questions in each subsection

Wed Jun 20, 2012 4:44 am
Hi,

Greetings! I have a quick question - Let us consider verbal section which comprises of SC, RC and CR, does GMAT has fixed number of questions which would be asked for each subsection - SC, RC and CR? Similary for the quant- PS and DS?

Thanks,
Priyanka

Hi Priyanka!

Every examinee sees a fixed number of operational questions of each type. We view this as an essential part of fairness. The test taker sees a varying number of questions of each type because pre-test questions that do not count are embedded in the examination.

I hope this helps!
