GMAT scores are a bit complex to understand. AWA score is scored separately from 0 to 6. Scoring 4 or above makes your credits strong. IR is also scored separately from 1 to 8. Besides them, other two sections remain that are individually scored on a raw-score scale from 0 to 60 each allocated a percentile. Scoring 43 raw score in Quantitative section will earn you a 61st percentile and scoring 43 in verbal section provides you a 96th percentile. When these two raw scores are combined, they make up your overall score on a scale of 200 to 800. Your final score will also hold a percentile ranking, which is vital as it’s the number used by admission committees to evaluate candidates.
