It is computerized, because the applicants try to pass it on the computer and it is adaptive, because the test adjusts to your success: the more correct answers you give, the more difficult the questions are, the more mistakes you do - the easier questions you receive. The final score depends not only on the number of correct answers, but on the level difficulty of the questions that you have answered correctly. The more complex your issue, the higher will be its "value" in points.
The maximum score on the test is 800, the minimum is 200. Most of the schools expect from their students the result which is not less than 600 points. An average GMAT score of the students of the top business schools often exceed 700 points.
