FAQs - Admissions: New GMAT
The new GMAT test now includes an Integrated Reasoning (IR) section to the exam, which is designed to measure a test taker’s ability to evaluate information presented in new formats and from multiple sources.
According to GMAC, the IR will evaluate a test-taker’s ability to:
- Synthesize information presented in graphics, text, and numbers
- Evaluate relevant information from different sources
- Organize information to see relationships and to solve multiple, interrelated problems
- Combine and manipulate information to solve complex problems that depend on information from one or more sources
The IR section will be scored separately on a scale of 1-8 and will not affect the AWA, Quantitative, Verbal or Total scores; the results from the IR section will not be included on the unofficial score reports provided to test takers immediately after the exam but will be on the Official Score Reports.

Until there is more benchmarking data from test-takers to consider, INSEAD will not be using the IR section to review a candidate’s performance in the GMAT; we will continue to focus on the quantitative and verbal scores as well as the total score. However, over time, the Admissions Committee aims to incorporate this section into the overall assessment of a candidate.
