GMAT was originally a paper-and-pencil test; now it is a computer-adaptive test (CAT), where examinees sit at a computer in a testing center. The computer-adaptive test format means that the difficulty of the questions faced are based upon the test performance. From June 2012, integrated reasoning section was added to the GMAT.
