GMAT Analytical Writing Assessment Syllabus

The Analytical Writing section will have topics on which the candidate will have to write, or passage may be given on which questions will be asked. On the basis of the passage, the candidate will have to answer. The syllabus for this section is vast and varied as the topic of the passage could be any topic of interest. The main idea is to focus on the structure of the answer and not the arguments presented. Remember, it is not a test of your opinion but your writing style, so it is safer to stick to neutral opinion.
Argument essay
In this section, you have to analyse the reasoning and then present your argument. Remember, you will be judged on how well reasoned you find a given argument.
Issue essay
In this section, you have to write an essay on the issue given to you. The candidate has to give an opinion in around 600 words. The opinion can be supportive of the given statement or candidates can give their own opinion. However, make sure to give your opinion in a properly structured manner as you will be judged on this basis.
