One common question we receive from students is "when will I know my GMAT score?" As soon as you complete the test, you will have an option to see your scaled score (i.e., the score that is out of 800) and your sub-section scores (i.e., your quantitative and verbal scores). However, you cannot see your AWA score immediately. After a few days, your AWA score is available online. For more information on how the AWA is graded and how it influences your GMAT prep, please see AWA grading.
