Re: Analytical Writing GMAT Score

An official GMAT score report consists of five parts:
• Verbal Scaled Score (on a scale from 0 to 60)
• Quantitative Scaled Score (on a scale from 0 to 60)
• Total Scaled Score (on a scale from 200 to 800)
• Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) Score (on a scale from 0 to 6)
• Integrated Reasoning Score (on a scale from 1 to 8)
The total score is a scaled combination of the verbal and quantitative scaled scores, and thus reflects a student’s overall performance on the multiple-choice sections of the test.
The AWA and the Integrated Reasoning sections are scored independently; scores for these sections do not affect the 200-800 scaled score

.
The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA)

The AWA essay receives two scores on a scale of 0 to 6, at least one of which comes from a human reader.
The other score, however, may come from a computerized evaluation program. If the scores from the two readers are identical or differ by exactly one point, they are averaged to obtain the final score for that essay.
If the scores differ by more than one point, an expert human reader determines the final score.

The following table lists all of the possible AWA scaled scores and the percentile rankings assigned to each of them.
AWA Score Percentile

6.0 92
5.5 81
5.0 60
4.5 44
4 21
3.5 13
3.0 6
2.5 5
0.5-2.0 3
0 0

Over 90% of test-takers receive a scaled score of 3 or higher on the AWA.
Since human readers are involved in the AWA grading process, students cannot view their AWA scores on the same day that they take the test.
