Integrated Reasoning (IR) section will have about 12 questions which must be answered in 30 minutes. You need to use both verbal and quantitative data to answer IR questions. IR is scored separately on a scale of 1-8.

IR section tests your ability to interpret, analyze and evaluate verbal and quantitative information. These are the skills that are highly relevant in the real-world management scenarios.

You will be provided with an online calculator to answer IR questions. One set of data may have more than one question based on it, so be aware about this and refer to the right set of data to answer the questions.

You need to answer questions in the order in which they appear as there is no option to go back and forth. So, if you skip answering a question then you do not have an option to go back to answer it or change an answer you have already marked.

There are four types of questions that you will come across in the IR section. These are:

  1. Graphics Interpretation (2-3 questions)
  2. Two-Part Analysis (3-4 questions)
  3. Table Analysis (1-2 questions)
