How does CAT work?
For each multiple-choice section of the GMAT exam, there is a large pool of potential questions ranging
from a low to high level of difficulty. Each section of the test starts with a question of moderate
difficulty. If you answer the first question correctly, the computer will usually give you a harder
question. If you answer the first question incorrectly, your next question will be easier.
This process will continue until you complete the section, at which point the computer will have an
accurate assessment of your ability level in that subject area.
In a computer-adaptive test, only one question at a time is presented. Because the computer scores
each question before selecting the next one, you may not skip, return to, or change your responses
to previous questions.
